Hopefully I won't be here much longer since the Army brought me here I am an East Coast girl at heart.
2 minutes?! Heck, you can spit into Mexico from I-10! I'm in El Paso too. You melting too?
Yeah, the cake supply here is pretty sad, usually if I cannot get it at Hobby Lobby or Micheal's I shop online, but there are a couple other places in town: Grafton on McRae, right of I-10, in the shopping center across from the Chico's Tacos, I've bought a couple things there, nice people. There is Victoria's Cake House down on Alameda, but I've never been there. There is also MPG Cake Decorating Supplies on Doniphan, but I called there once to see if they carried Satin Ice and whoever answered the phone didn't speak English, and I don't speak Spanish (not an EP native), so that didn't go to to well. Lastly, there is Gallery of Flowers and Wedding Cake Supply on Trawood. They are not listed under Cake Decoration Supplies in the Yellow Pages
, and I would have never known about them if I didn't live nearby and have to drive past!
Oh, there is a new place up in Las Cruces, My Create-A-Cake. I've yet to go there, but from what I get from their newsletter and when I called, they have QUITE a bit of a selection. I need to make the treck up there soon.
