I'm in Lake Dallas...on the shores of Lewisville Lake. Chebean - I agree it's great to see the lake full of water again!

I too love Cake Carousel - want to visit Cakes Amore...

I am in Rowlett also. We are just east of Dallas close to Rockwall. I also am a fan of Cake Carousel. I have taken LOTS of classes there and am planning on taking the one w/ Bronwen in October. I went to Cakes Amore once the prices are a little cheaper than Cake C and the lady was very nice she just did not have the knowledge that Jeri and Tammy have. I would love to get together and have a cake round up! Just tell me when and where!

2 minutes?! Heck, you can spit into Mexico from I-10! I'm in El Paso too. You melting too? icon_lol.gif

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 icon_confused.gif , and I would have never known about them if I didn't live nearby and have to drive past! icon_rolleyes.gif

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.

I wish there were more cake supply shops in Laredo. icon_sad.gif Oh, well, Michael's will have to do for now. Thanks to this thread I discovered Cake Craft Shoppe and ordered from them. Finally a place I can order from without exorbitant shipping prices!!!!

But we would like to get together with other people in our area that also do cake decorating on a decided on weekend maybe once a month or every couple of months to exchange ideas. If anyone is interested would you email me and we can see what we can arrange. My email address is NiteOwl4evr@aol.com and if you would put something in the subject line...cake decoratoring get together so I know not to delete ya...Look forward to hearing from ya

There is a cake club there in Houston--I have seen their website but at the moment I can't think of the name of the club.
Any one else here know the name?
I will see if I can find it again.

I just typed in "Houston cake clubs" and an ton of names came up
Here's the link to one: http://www.houstoncakeclub.com/index.htm


It's not the one I was thinking of, but a place to start. There were several others listed too. Do a search, maybe there's another one close to you.
Good luck. cowboy.gif

Longview here, Have been doing character cakes for years, but am slowly teaching myself new things, since I am just really getting back into the desire to do cakes.
