So, I googled to see what other cake supply stores might be around besides my usual which is at rush hour at least 40 minutes away - and discovered there is one 15 minutes near me. It is very small (tiny actually) shop but loaded with supplies.  Since an upcoming cake requires some molded chocolate decoration or fondant or both and arriving 10 minutes before closing and back in my car 3 minutes after, I purchased: 

Bakel’s Gum Paste
Satin Ice Rolled Fondant - wanting to compare to Rose’s and Wilton’s.
A 1M tip - to practice those on cake roses (grins)
A large rose tip
Silver Luster Dust - wondering if I can paint chocolate or should I have purchased silver leaf ... hmmm
Guittard Vanilla A’Peels
Chocolate Candy Coating
Green Candy Coating
Food Decorating Pens

Then I went to Michael’s and purchased a small cake leveler (broke my small one some time ago) a gum paste flower rack for when I am in the mood for playing with food, a plastic stencil (because Designer Stencils cake lettering stencils cost too much), two mini squeeze bottles, and a Wilton Baker’s Blade. 

And, I still need to visit the other store within the next week to obtain some small boxes (for leftover cake slices). 

Now on to the other fun.

Wow! What a haul. Sounds like fun! I dipped some numbers in tempered chocolate once, them painted them with gold luster dust mixed with vodka. It did not give full coverage, but a very nice golden shimmer effect.

Interesting, Georgie, you dipped fondant numbers into chocolate?  ......very interesting idea ...one for my notebook.

Hi Renee,

They were actually plastic number picks. I loved the font & bought them online to go on top of a cake. But when they arrived, the color was completely different then they looked on the computer and made them look really cheap. A coat of chocolate made them look soooo much better!
