    1. re: kpzoo

      Another note on France decor, the sign in the window says some other name. Vixit?

      1. re: hala

        That's the other name it's known under.

    2. What about in that shopping centre on sources near Cardinal Pointe Claire Shopping center (I think that is the name ) there is a spice store en vrac but they have all kinds of different cake pans and decorations in the back

      1. re: Matash

        It's called Papillon, and they do have a good selection. They rent lots of Wilton cake pans in special shapes, too.

        Does anybody know of a place NOT in the West Island, and preferably close to Villeray, that rents cake pans?

      2. Just a side note: France Decor is closed on Sundays and closes early on Saturdays (one o'clock if i'm not mistaken).
        Also, Bulk Barn in Marche de L'ouest has a nice selection, and the Wilton fondant they sell is slightly cheaper then France Decor & Ares.
        For supplies such as pans, baking sheets, boxes and bulk ingredients (flour, sugar, Barry cocoa, etc), there's the Provigo Entrepot in Chomedey, Laval on Cure-Labelle (in between Notre Dame & Souvenir I think.......)

        1. Tzanet is my first stop when I search for baking supplies. I've picked up my cake pans, silpats, and piping tips from there. You have to dig to find the right sizes, but they have more selection than other restaurant supply stores. Up to 12" square and round and 12"x18" rectangular pans. When I can't find the right size, I go to Ares and spend the extra money.
          France Decor (upstairs) has a great selection of cake decorations. It depends on what it is you are looking for.

          9600 Boulevard De l'Acadie
          Montréal, QC
          (514) 381-0000

          1. Does anyone know where I could buy or rent a Dolly Varden cake tine (or a metal pudding basin) downtown, or easily accessible by Metro?

            I am also after a good selections of tips for cake decorating, specifically one to do rosettes. Again, any suggestions for downtown/Plateau at all? I thought Zellers would definitely have something but there was nothing!

            Thank you!

            1. re: unlaced

              La soupiere for tips.

              If you only want rosette tips, most of the time you can find them at Winners in a small cake decorating set. Canadian Tire also has a small set of tips that includes tips for roses. Both places will be cheaper than la soupiere. If you are picky about size, call La soupiere (or any other self-respecting kitchen store) to check what they have or go to Ares or Vixit, they should have everything inlcuding the cake pan (for sale). Not sure who rents pans in montreal.

              1. re: unlaced

                For the tips, I remember buying some at Nino on St-Laurent below Pine. It was a few years ago but might be worth checking. I've also bought cake decorating stuff at Canadian Tire at Alexis Nihon, strangely enough.

                1. re: stak

                  Thank you so much hala and stak! I went into Zellers at Alexis Nihon, thinking they were more likely to have cake decorating sets - I should have gone to the shops (CT and Winners) on the higher floors!!

              2. Hi I'm looking for cake decorating supplies specifically sprinkles/icing/etc/ The plateau would be the best if there is any place - thanks!!!!

                1. re: rakeypakey

                  Not sure about the plateau, but Omer de Serres in Place Montreal Trust recently started carrying a few cake decorating basics. You will not find the variety you get at France Decor or Ares, but they do have all the basics.

                  If you are just looking for basic sprinkles and icing, you can get that at any larger grocery store.
