Just some of my favourite suppliers. They of course all stock a lot more than I mention in my descriptions below, but I just prefer to point out the more rare items that make them my favourite places to shop.


Alfresco Emporium (Sydney – Australia, Online) – Stocks laser-cut cupcake wrappers and favour boxes.

Fancy Flours (USA, Online) – Stocks laser-cut cupcake wrappers, cake and biscuit stencils, cake jewels, edible metallic paste, edible glitter and other goodies. However, international shipping will set you back a hefty USD$40.00 per order (eek!).

Plenty (Sydney – Australia) – Stocks bulk amounts of mixed brightly-coloured cupcake wrappers, sugar flowers, and other goodies. No online store, so just for the lucky few who have easy access to Westfield Bondi Junction.

The Essential Ingredient (Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Newcastle, Orange, Albury) – Stocks a wide range of cookie cutters, bakeware and a few hard-to-find food dyes, edible glitter, nonpareils and such.

Randwick Oriental Supermarket (Sydney) – Stocks pandan paste and essence. There is an online store but unfortunately it does not stock the pandan paste or essence.


Careme Pastry – For those who have troubles with making shortcrust pastry (or just can’t be bothered making it), this is a delicious solution. It’s a bit pricey, but very good quality.
