About Us

Lorraine's first opened for business on June 6, 1977, owned and operated by Lorraine and Jim Frisbee. Jim first had the idea of opening a cake decorating supply shop, and in February of 1977 the idea for Lorraine's was born. They worked many nights and into the early hours of the morning getting things ready (with their two young children, Laurie and Jim Jr. often sleeping on the floor). Jim's mom, Lillian ran the store while Jim and Lorraine held other jobs. Lorraine resigned from her teaching job to work at Lorraine's full time. Her mom, Ruth, joined in along with her Dad, Austin, who helped with their candy orders. After 35 years of service, Lorraine & Jim have semi-retired and Laurie now manages Lorraine's. Kathy has been on board for over 10 years as Laurie’s talented assistant who is well versed in many cake & candy crafting techniques. "Thank You!" to all our wonderful customers who have supported us and kept us in business for the last 45 years.
