hello! well, i have my michaels coupons just sitting here and i cant think of what to buy!! Any suggestions? I collected 3 and with one coupon I bought the writer thing that you make the imprint with and then trace the writing. Im not sure what else to get. What is something that is really beneficial??

thanks!!

If you don't have them already, the Wilton letter cutters are really nice. You can use them to cut letters out of fondant or candy clay and then put them on the cake. It's a lifesaver for me...I don't have pretty cake penmanship. If you want to see what they'd look like, I used them on the carebear cake in my photos. Happy shopping!

I hate to have those coupons go to waste but I don't want to spend money on things I don't need either. When I do not know what to get or do not need something in particular I usually buy a box of disposable decorating bags or meringue powder. Those are things I know I will use eventually.

Buy some extra things, like extra spatulas, extra flower nails, maybe a new cake stand...... some more common use pans, like the rounds and squares...or I know get another cooling rack....I know I need another large cooling rack..ummmmmm...oh some extra couplers and coupler rings...

I was just thinking of a cooling rack too, Mouse, I have only one large one and it just isn't enough!
I wish they had those spackle spreaders everyone is talking about for icing, I'd like one of those, but we have to go elsewhere for that! I just bought the 352 tip, and then found I already had one, but I always figure if one is good, two is better! Maybe I'd get their version of lustre dust, I need that too!

Thanks! I cut those out of pink candy clay. I bought it ready-made during a 50% off sale at Hobby Lobby. It's a very small amount you get in an assorted colors package. The carebear is an edible image.

I thought of another thing I love. The Wilton large cookie sheet. It's huge, no sides. I use it for placing large layers of cake.

I found a poster with sharebear on it and cropped it. Then I printed it using my edible ink printer.
