Where to find fondant in Toronto?

  • 7

Hi Toronto Chowhounders!

Just wondering if anyone can point me into the direction of a downtown (preferable annex/lil italy/kensington area) shop that I can get ready-to-use fondant?

From searching on the internet, the most recommended place to find some would be the craft store Michael's... sadly, these big box stores are not super accessible to me. I've also found some homemade recipes but having never worked with it before, I'd like to check out consistency and suss out the real thing before I delve into making my own.

Thanks!

  1. You may want to try a little independant cake shop that uses it and ask if they will sell you some..

    I found a recipe for Marshmallow fondant that looked quite easy to make.. I want to try someday soon...

      My friend who does professional cakes did recommend the marshmallow fondant recipe as well.

      You can try McCall's 416-231-8040. It's a good store, walking distance to Kipling subway station, but expensive. I did see tubs of fondant there and lots of other cake supplies.

      Alternatively, there's SKOR Food Group, but I've never been there yet. I was recommended that as an alternate place when I told my friend I bought my supplies from McCall's. She said you can sign yourself up as a sole proprietor and buy at wholesale prices. http://www.skorfoodgroup.com/cashandc...

    2. If there is a Bulk Barn anywhere near you, they carry it. I can't comment on the quality, but I have seen it there.

      Specifically I remember the one inside the Loblaws at Leslie & Lakeshore, over near the Beaches.

      Though it's truly not that difficult to make, if you have the ingredients. I can post the recipe in Home Cooking or email instructions, if you like.

        That would be great!
        Have you used the recipe before?

        1. re: dearbaaah

          Yes, a number of times. I'll type it up tonight. It's even easier now that I have invested in a Kitchenaid mixer, but a regular handbeater works just fine.

        1. Hi,

          Sorry this took a while, something sort of came up. The recipe and instructions are posted over in the Home Cooking section. Hope that helps!
