Holiday baking season is here and you will be amazed at the selection of sprinkles, sugars and jimmies at your local cake and candy supply store. I was taken to this marvelous "sugarland" called Heinrich's Decorating Nook by my friend Allison. She makes a run here every November to get the chocolate and peppermint crunch she needs for her holiday candy making. When she mentioned her pilgrimage to me, I jumped at the chance to go with her and see this sugar supply store for myself. Now I am a part of her annual trip and last week was my 5th year going with her. We wander up and down every aisle and have a wonderful time imagining all the varieties of candy we could make. In the end we always settle on our now-famous toffee. December 18th is the big day this year and I am really looking forward to having her over for a fun day of toffee making.
Want to find your own sugarland? Google: "(Your Town), cake decorating" and you will see a list of options in your area. You won't be disappointed - the selection is greater and the prices are better than any grocery (or craft) store where you might be tempted to shop for cake and candy decorations. Have some fun!
