Cake decorating supplies?

Does anyone know of a pastry/cake decorating supply store that's open to the public in the Bay Area, preferably the East Bay/South Bay? Thanks in advance!

      They had a large selection the last time I visited although it was almost a year ago.

        I was in Spun Sugar about a week ago to pick up some cocoa butter, and they seemed to have everything you'd want for cake decorating.

          Yeah, they have a pretty complete selection. Some stuff you can get cheaper at East Bay Restaurant Supply.

        Sorry, All I know is Cake Art in San Rafael (Marin). Perhaps call them and they might know someone closer. http://www.insiderpages.com/b/3710685035

            If you can't find what you need in the East Bay, I would suggest Sugar n Spice in Daly City on Junipero Serra.

              I'll second Sugar n Spice in Daly City. It probably has the most selections available in the Bay Area. We've been to both the Spun Sugar and Sugar n Spice.

              I teach college level pastry arts and Sugar N Spice is a terrific place for baking supplies. They have all the things a professional needs to cake and pastry baking. I'd also try J.B. Prince (on line). For the really interesting (and high end) decorative stuff (eatable glitters, gold leaf, etc) I go to Sur La Table. My fav's in Los Gatos in the South Bay.
