If you've ever decided to make cake pops, and searched high and low for 8" lollipop sticks, or needed edible gold shimmer spray to give your baked good that extra shine, chances are you've needed to turn to one of Adelaide's cake decorating stores.
Unlike the US, where huge stores are dedicated to making cakes and other sweet things as good looking as possible, in Adelaide things can be a little harder. So if you've stubbled across a great find, let us know which cake decorating store you think is the best.
Creative Cooks is one option. They have two stores, one at Melrose Park and one at Parafield. When they have their big sales they'll even open up their Parafield warehouse. They have a whole manner of cookware, appliances, and cookies supplies, and their baking section is definitely worth a gander. They stock a huge range of Wilton products, as well as other fun decorations and tools. You can also pick up things like stands or caddies for when you're displaying or transporting anything you've made.
The range at General Trader isn't quite as extensive as Creative Cooks, but they do have some cute baking accessories. You can find lively cupcake liners and cups, as well as some cute toppers. They don't stock the full range of colourings and flavours, but they stock plenty to make your food look great. Wheel and Barrow have a similar range of stock, so they're also worth checking out.
If you're looking for somewhere with a range to rival the online baking stores then Complete Cake Decorating Supplies is a great place to go. They're just south of the city in Pasadena, and they stock just about anything you could need. They don't have such a huge focus on the brand names like some other stores do, so you'll also be able to find all your lollipop sticks, fake cake rounds, moulds, flavours, colours, and more. Head a bit further south and you'll also find A Cake You Crave, they've also got a great range but it's just much smaller.
Have we mentioned your favourite cake decorating supplier, or do you have somewhere else that keeps your supplies stocked up? If you know where to skip the online postage fees and shop locally, let us know where the best cake decorating supplies can be found.
