My Favorite Places to Shop for Equipment and Ingredients:

Boxes: where I buy all my pastry boxes  

Fondant and other cake decorating tools: my favorite place to shop if I have time to go pick up — best prices in Orlando and great selection; very friendly, quick service.  You can shop online and pick up within the hour usually.

The Sweet Chalet: Sanford. Super friendly and helpful owner. Also, a treat to shop there for both adults and young (well-behaved) ones. Also competitive prices but not a comprehensive inventory also very friendly and good selection; very convenient if you live on the East side of Orlando
www.DandGoccasions: extensive selection and convenient hours but customer service has always been lackluster

Bulk ingredients: 

General baking equipment: Restaurant Equipment World, Restaurant Depot, Amazon

Acrylic cake disks and cake scrapers: my absolute favorite cake disks and scrapers with amazing and friendly customer service

Baking and Cake Decorating classes: baking and cake decorating classes for all levels : more advanced cake decorating classes

Custom cookie stencils: wonderful customer service with rapid turnaround
