of Elizabeth's Cake Supplies
Elizabeth Wilcox has done
something that most people only dream of. She has turned her
hobby into a business, and a successful one at that. After
taking a decorating class and realizing the frustration of not
finding cake supplies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Elizabeth’s
Cake Supplies was born.
Originally opening in
1972 in Bedford, Elizabeth’s Cake Supplies were just that –
Elizabeth’s stock of cake supplies, which she sold or rented to
other decorators. Elizabeth has had 2 other locations after she
left Bedford, before moving into her
own building in 1978, located
at 112 South Ector Drive in Euless.
Family ownership is one thing that
hasn’t changed over the years: Elizabeth’s daughters Jackie &
Wanda have been in business with their mother
for years. In 1975, when Jackie was only 14,
Elizabeth took a master cake decorating class together at
in Chicago, and the next year they
took another class at Country
Kitchen in Fort
Wayne, Indiana. In the year 2005 Jackie left the business to
move to the country.
When her daughter Jackie entered
the business with Elizabeth, Elizabeth’s Cake Supplies began
catering weddings: making the cakes, mints, punch, arranging the
flowers, and supplying the brass equipment for the auditorium as
well as crystal, plates, pillars, fountains, silverware, table
coverings and napkins.
Knowing the trouble it takes to
prepare the perfect wedding cakes and decorations, Elizabeth’s
Cake Supplies keeps large quantity of wedding ornaments and
supplies on hand, so her customers get exactly what they want.
Far from only supplying for
weddings, Elizabeth’s Cake Supplies is bursting with supplies
for making every sort of cake imaginable, as well as candy
supplies, books and pamphlets, colorings, flavorings, pastes and
For many years, Elizabeth has been
offering courses on Cake Decorating, a service that she
continues to this day.
More recently, Elizabeth’s Cake
Supplies has established an online presence as a supplier of
rubber mint molds to people outside of the DFW metroplex, as
well as to those who have been trusting Elizabeth to supply for
their baking needs for years.
