Best Emporium for Fanatical Bakers

Spun Sugar

The Willy Wonkas of cake decorating, Bettye Travis and Linda Moreno
fulfill the frosting-topped fantasies of bakers and confectioners at
Spun Sugar, their candy land of a store. In addition to basics like
cake pans, cookie cutters, and cream of tartar, the shop is stacked to
the rafters with sugar charms and specialty flours, eco-friendly muffin
cups and chocolate transfer sheets, gift bags, cookbooks, a rainbow of
paste colors, frosting tips from 1 to 352, and enough sprinkles to
repave University Avenue. Casual bakers and pros alike can practice new
skills in seasonal classes on everything from building concept cakes
and tempering chocolate to handling croissant dough and designing
whimsical cupcakes. Every summer, youngsters measure and mix during
weeklong Cooking Camps, while holiday gingerbread-house classes let
parents and kids bond while building. The sweet-as-can-be staff is
always ready to help, so if your soufflé sags or your frosting
flops, they’ll help you find a recipe for success.
