Love this place!! Wonderful and knowledgeable staff, great classes for all ages and abilities. Kids and I made beautiful decorative easter eggs. And i I have taken other classes over the years. Very worth the money.

They have tons of edible supplies, along with numerous cake and candy baking/making supplies, cookie cutters, cake pans etc. Such a fun place!

From classes to cake and candy needs, miles is the place to go! I love the friendly staff. The classes are amazing. Everything about this place is the best. I drive all the way from Farmington now to come here when I'm baking.

I love this store! Friendly service and they have z large selection of cookie cutters. My only wish is that they would utilize their space more and add more items 🙂 I plan to shop here often!

Nicole C.

Miles is a great resource for beginning and seasoned bakers/candy makers alike. They have a lot of variety in the confection category- molds, tips, flavorings, the list goes on. I'm sad they are so far east, but it's worth the drive when you really need quality supplies at a reasonable price.

Sarah H.

I really enjoyed going to this place gives me a lot of inspiration for my baking and they have pretty much everything you need and they're not as out dated as the other baking supply store that I will not mention their name.
