My Favorite Places to Shop for Equipment and Ingredients:


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; good for custom edible images

    Marzipan. raw eggs. Is it safe

      When I make marzipan I use pasteurized egg whites from a carton so I feel comfortable using it uncooked. But, if you don’t feel comfortable with that you can use other liquids like corn syrup or lemon juice instead.
