Where to buy: Tart Rings/Cake rings in in Calgary/Edmonton/Red Deer

Wondering if anyone knows where to get tart rings - the type that are bottomless. Not looking for an online source. I already tried Sunworks Home & Garden in Red Deer.

Thanks All

  1. Pastry equipment is like lingerie, even if you do find something decent in Calgary it will be extremely overpriced. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) a trip to France is necessary.

      Oh, I figured they wouldn't be cheap :) While a trip to France would be fantastic I was hoping my quest wouldn't involve airfare.

    2. It may be worth checking the restaurant supply stores, including the Chinese one on Centre St N. I found mine on the cheap in a kitchen supply store in Hong Kong, so maybe the Chinese supplier in Calgary would have them as well.

      1. hi maple;
        if you decide to give up and go online may I suggest Goldas Kitchen in Mississauga? I went there on a trip to Ontario recently and they have everything! I've placed an online order since I returned and had great service. Yes, the shipping is a little high, but when you can't find what you want sometimes you have to just bite the bullet I guess. Either that or I would hit kijiji and look for bakery sales. I got some really nice large loaf pans that way from a bakery that was going out of business. Good Luck!

        1. Thanks for the suggestions all. I'll hit that Chinese store by Mykonos and if I strike out there I'll check out kijiji and Golda's.

          1. I thought Hendrix on 42 ave SE had some last time I was there. But a couple of years ago and maybe taller than what you're looking for. If you do go online try Free shipping for orders over $60.
