Cake Decorating Suppliers in the Philadelphia Area

I'm on the hunt for some creative decorating tools, etc. for a cake I need to make in a few weeks. Normally I order most of my decorating instruments online, but I find that I generally get something different than what I was expecting given that I am not able to see the object in person before purchase. The only places that I really know of in the area to get supplies in person are A.C. Moore, as well as a small stand at the Quakertown Farmers Market. Does anyone have any suggestions for any other stores in the area that might supply cake-related things not typically found at the Williams & Sonomas and Kitchen Kapers of the world?

I live in Chestnut Hill and am willing to drive a fair distance (New Jersey, Delaware, etc) if I can find a place that has a great inventory. Thanks in advance!

  1. Sorry (it's in Delaware) but Cannon's Custom Cakes on the Kirkwood Hwy between Wilmington and Newark has all kinds of nozzles and stuff.

    1. Not sure how unusual the supplies are that you're looking for but you could try Fante's in the Italian Market in South Philly.
      You can shop before you go on their website and then check everything out in person:

        Yes, Fantes has a huge selection and very knowledgable salespeople. Thank you.

      2. Fante's also has a website.

          1. In the past, Sears had good cake decorating supplies. But that was years ago.
            I took my cake decorating class there back in the day. I have never returned because I always go to Fante's for everything I need.

              There is a store in Hatboro - K P Kitchen Crafts located at 222 S. York Road. They carry cake and candy supplies. They are very nice and helpful. If they don't have what you are looking for - they can order it for you.
              I hope this helps.

                It does, thanks, as I live fairly close to that. I'll have to check it out!
