Fondant and other cake decorating tools:

www.fondantsource.com: 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
www.Annettescakes.com: 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
