A & J Cake & Candy Supplies

Nov 28, 2011

To celebrate the publication of our sister book EAT: Los Angeles 2012, we’re posting regular listings chosen from the book’s many San Gabriel Valley destinations for food lovers. This week’s is a wonderful resource for bakers, on the east end of the Valley in Glendora.

WHY Who wouldn’t want to learn how to make cluster candies, chocolate pizzas and marshmallow buddies?

WHAT From the front, this strip-mall place on a lost stretch of Route 66 looks like nothing more than a place to buy candy molds, and in fact it is an excellent supply house for bakers and candy makers. But a lot more goes on behind those doors: classes in candy and cake making, for the novice to the experienced. Free candy-making demonstrations happen twice a month, and if you like what you see, you can sign up to learn how to make your own bon bons. The cake-decorating and fondant-making classes are also popular.

WHO Gaggles of middle-aged women friends, and moms with their teenage daughters.

2254 Rte. 66, Glendora, 626.335.7747, Closed Sun. MC, V, AE.
