Who lives in Ontario Canada and uses Satin Ice???? - Page 7

post #91 of 260
I'm so jealous of all of you who live in Windsor. With the border so close you must go shopping all the time! My husband and I were in San Francisco on an "adult" get away and I dragged him to 3 different cake decorating supply shops and that doesn't include Target (my fav)!

Christie,

yes it is nice to live in a border city..for the shopping. icon_biggrin.gif I do go over to a cake supply shop once and awhile and i absolutely drool everytime i walk in the place. They definitely have more than windsor. The only problem is the border is insane to get across since 9/11. Most times we end up sitting in the tunnel or on the bridge for over an hour, it puts a damper on the trip. DH hates going over because of it. I don't feel comfortable going by myself. I somehow seem to convince him to drive me, around once every couple of months.

Cjmommy..I work in Georgetown..Nice to meet you... icon_biggrin.gif I'm in Brampton. I live about 15 mins from Goldas on Argentia. I have yet to go there. I actually had a hard time finding it the first time I tried.. icon_eek.gif

sweetcravings - I agree, the border can be a real PITA. Somehow it's not quite as bad at Sarnia though. Although, even still you never know what to expect until you get there - you can sail across, or you can sit there bumper to bumper for an hour or so. A number of people I know from the London area go over once or twice a month just to grocery shop.

Even though the Canadian dollar is better than par, we aren't getting many breaks up here. Don't even get me started on air flights!!! tapedshut.gif (At least in London, we are half way between Toronto and Detroit, so we are usually able to take advantage of the Detroit flights. My DD actually drove to Detroit to catch a flight to Toronto and connect to London, England because it was over $200 cheaper than just catching the same England flight directly from Toronto.) sorry for the hijack. Rant over. icon_redface.gif

We've curtailed our trips to the US greatly. I really miss Target, Bath and Body Works, Meijer, etc. And when I see the prices of cake stuff down there, it just gets me riled!

I have been to Create-a Cake in Port Huron twice over the past year. It was very easy to temp my BF as there's a Harley Davidson on the same street( I seem to luck out that way,every cake store out of town has one nearby..LOL)

It's actually in Kimball ,outskirts of Port Huron....First time I thought it was way out there as we kept driving farther out.

Is it a big store? Good prices? Different stuff? Worth the drive from London?

I signed up for all 3 wilton courses as Michaels, completed them before we left for their wedding in Mexico. Glorious week of pampering I might add. We threw a wedding reception when we got back and I made the cake. I ended up getting a few cake orders from it. Then my DD announced she was pregnant so I did her baby shower cake, got a few orders from that. My DIL is a supply teacher so every year I make clown cupcakes for her kids and a cake for the teachers which always gets me orders. I made my nieces wedding cake ( she lives in London) got orders because of that now I am doing her baby shower cake this weekend. I just do it from home whenever I get an order, I am pretty busy babysitting my grandson since my DD went back to work. I would love to play with cakes all day, everyday! I have just started modelling with fondant and I can't believe I waited so long to try. It is so much fun. Haven't gotten around to resizing all my cake pics to post. So that's my story icon_smile.gif What is yours? icon_wink.gif


Hi, I do cakes as a hobby. Took a city course couple of years back and came across this website last year. I am now addicted to this site and visit the website several times a day. I too would love to play with cakes all day. I do not miss an opportunity to do a cake for family, friends or work. Voluntarily and free of charge. And now my DD volunteers to bring a cake to school every time there is an opportunity but I don't mind because I love doing cakes. Would love to have more time to do more.

The prices at Create-a-cake are so cheap compared to here and it's a small store with lots packed in it. There's a side room with chocolate making ect. supplies and lots of molds...I think the molds were like $2.00?.....pretty much you name it they got it. Although when we go it's also for Meijer,target...dinner ect...and make a day.

The store is,if going over from Sarnia,from border go straight and to the left...there's signs to say to Lapeer Ave.---follow down to get to it and then you will turn right onto Lapeer Ave......soon you will see the Harley dealership (hehe) on the right and keep going....it will seen like you are way out of town ....I posted the street address which will help you to know you have to go farther......maybe a good 10 mins out of town....a small strip plaza on the left is Victoria Plaza....seems like no mans land..lol

HTH...and it is accurate from memory!maybe google a map too!

Oh I know, I love the shopping there. The stores you list are some of my favorites to shop at, and the ones on the top of my list each and everytime i go. But my DH hates shopping, so i have to keep my list short. Usually once or twice a year my sisters and i go over for the weekend, stay at a hotel and shop till we drop...love it.

See Nancy's post above for directions to Victorian Plaza. I've never been there, but it sounds like a great little store! I can't wait to check back here Sunday to see what you found!
