I was happy to get alot of emails telling me that people enjoyed the Reatailer Review post I did a couple of weeks ago and decided it will become a regular feature to the blog. This time around, we're featuring another great Canadian Online Retailer:
Located in Pickering Ontario, Flour Confections offers a wide range of cake decorating products ranging from basic tools to edible image supplies to the brand new Cricut Cake! FC is owned and operated by the very talented Lisa Bugeja and her husband Scott, who I am pleased to say are very helpful and friendly when dealing with customer enquiries. Their prices are very reasonable, as it the very quick shipping. Some of the products that I love include the green disposable pastry bags and the vast selection cutters. I am very excited about their new range of petal dust colors exclusive to FC - the colors look to be very intense and I plan on ordering them very soon.
Not only is Flour Confections an amazing online retailer, they also offer a variety of hands on classes taught by Lisa, as well as a bevy of celebrity cake artists. This year alone, FC has hosted the likes of such talent as James Rosselle, Bronwen Weber and Mr.Amazing himself, Mike McCarey! Early next year, they will be hosting a Muppets cake class with the 1 and only Lauren Kitchens, competitor in the recent Sesame Street Challenge on Food Network. I have yet to take a class at FC, but do have it on my list of places I'd like to learn - doesn't hurt that my aunt lives a mere 10 minutes away in Ajax - now if my day job schedule wouldn't interfere with the FC class schedule :)
Take my word for it, head on over to http://www.flourconfections.ca/ and see for yourself the amazing things you can get. A couple of things worth checking out are the Edible Image Systems (I actually told a local supplier about the deal at FC because their own system had died on them, and they still thank me for telling them about it because the system is working great) as well as the silicone plastique used to make your own molds. I also love that they carry SugarVeil and am intrigued by the new edible crystals they are advertising!
