Local Suppliers

This week, I'm looking into local cake decorating suppliers.  The nearest one to me is The Ice Box Plus in Brooklyn, CT on South Main Street,( which runs parallel to Rt. 6) right across from the Ocean State Job Lot plaza.

As you can see from her image, there are a lot of very useful items to be found.  I've rented pans and bought luster dust, isomalt, and candy molds, Americolor color gels, and lorann oils and extracts. All things I'd otherwise had to find online and waited to receive.  Instant gratification is a good thing!! :)

And while you're there, step next door to The Ice Box for an ice cream cone, or cake--local favorites!
