ABC Cake Decorating Supplies in Phoenix: What We Bought, What We Skipped and What We're Still Lusting Over

Page 3 of 3

What We Skipped: While ABC has tons of unusual cake topping options, nothing is creepier than the Macho Man ($2.19), which is essentially a lounging knock-off Ken doll that would make any cake skeezy and unnerving. We also don't quite get the point of a cupcake-shaped cake pan ($13.99). Either make a cake or make cupcakes.

One aisle we passed up completely was the bakery emulsions ($5.29 per bottle) aisle. Artificial and natural flavors for coffee, coconut, raspberry and even butter just make no sense when you can use the real deal.
