I was in Phoenix yesterday and remembered that there was an awesome cake decorating supply store there. I drove around for a bit and then looked in my GPS to find a cake store. It was meant to be, I was 2 miles away. Fantastico - as Phoenix is massive. ABC Cake Arts is a fantastic place for moms, professionals, and people who love to throw a good party.
I picked up a few things I have been needing: a cake comb for decorating, a LARGE petal tip, and a cactus cutter. Ok, I don't need the cactus cutter, but I thought it was pretty cute. If you are looking for a random cookie cutter, this is your place. They have a huge variety.
They sell buttercream and fondant in tubs of all different sizes. I got a small tub of fondant to play with and a fondant rolling pin. They had tons of fondant texture sheets like this one. I really liked the flowers. You could use it on a whole sheet or use it to make individual flowers.
This mold is one of many different texture sheets I had to choose from. So hard to pick just one.
Now to the fun part, the sprinkles! There were aisles of sprinkles. Jimmies, non-pareils, sanding sugar, edible glitter, royal icing decorations, etc. You name it. The mustache was a result of me walking through 4 aisles of party favors/cake decor. I had to get something. They have plastic rings and cupcake picks to decorate any party.
I picked these chocolate jimmies and teal jimmies. I also love the traditional Christmas non-pareils, so I had to get a tub of those.
A tub of 12 oz. of jimmies is under $3.00. Pretty awesome. The colors are endless. They even sell mixes: Halloween, Easter, Fourth of July, need I say more.
If you are in Phoenix or driving through for the day, you have to check this place out. It is great to find a store dedicated to cake decorating. Everything is in ONE place.
