Cake Art Party Store. Ever heard of it before? Well if you know Bakerella, the Queen of Cake Pops then I'm sure you have seen her mention this a time or two or three on her blog! This is her go to shop for all things caking, baking and decorating! On a recent trip back to Mobile from Clemson, SC I convinced my amazing husband to veer off the interstate a few miles and stop in this baker's paradise! We couldn't have timed this trip any more perfectly because we literally were driving down the interstate through Atlanta and Cake Art popped in my head b/c I knew it was somewhere close by. I quickly searched for it on my iphone and what do you know we were within 10 minutes of the store! I nicely begged my husband to let us stop (keep in mind this is after he had already agreed to let me stop at IKEA in Atlanta too...isn't he great!), as this was probably the one and only time I would ever get to shop where Bakerella does! He agreed and we rolled into the parking lot right as the doors were opening for the day! Actually, I take that back, it would have been even more perfect if I had walked into the store and seen Bakerella in there shopping herself! I think I must have just missed her by a few days, based on her most recent Halloween post of all the goodies she grabbed at Cake Art!
So of course as I entered this amazing store of cake pans, cookie cutters, fondant, sprinkles, and so much more, I obviously had to get out my camera and take a few photos as I walked up and down every aisle in awe of the wide variety of products they had available! We definitely don't have anything quite like this in Mobile.
The Halloween section hit me in the face first! Oh the possibilities of the scary, creepy and spooky Halloween treats that could be created with all of this stuff! I quickly grabbed a 3 pack cookie cutter set, which included a tombstone that I needed for an upcoming project and headed on to the next isle.
and cake separator plates and pillars! Look at all those sizes available!
Fondant in every color of the rainbow! I would love to have this readily available to me, considering I am always tinting my own fondant colors by hand! This would be a huge time saver!
Oh look at all those piping bags!
And edible glitter and shimmer to make your sweets fancy!
An adorable mini cake pan in the shape of a popsicle! How cute...I didn't buy this, but now I'm wishing I had!
Cookie cutters! Can never have enough cookie cutters right? I snagged a pack of the 3-piece Ice Cream Cone set!
For the love of cake pans! Round, square, rectangle and all kinds of customized shapes!
Sprinkles, sprinkles and more sprinkles! Definitely threw a few bottles of these in my basket!
Sugar pearls! I wanted to grab a bag of every color, but I didn't!
The wall of color! Every color imaginable to use for tinting icings for cake and cookie decorating! Of course I grabbed an assorted box of AmeriColor since cookie decorating was in my near future!
I'm so glad I got to make a quick stop at Cake Art! Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to stop there again and shop for a little bit longer! I was literally racing down the isles like a mad women snapping photos, grabbing goodies and trying to get out of there as quickly as possible while my husband was entertaining my 6 month old son!
Here's what I came away with from my shopping spree! Oh and I did by some Push Pop containers which I forgot to include in the photo! Luckily Cake Art sells everything online too so I can always order what I need for future baking projects and have it shipped directly to my door! Not nearly as fun as seeing everything in person but I guess it will have to do since they are 5 hours away from where I live!
