So, I am sure that alot of you have spouses like mine that don't share my enthusiasm for cakes (don't get me wrong, DH is very supportive) so when I got this call yesterday, he didn't get excited like I did.
A lovely lady called to say that she used to do cake decorating a number of years ago, but was in the process of selling her home and downsizing and was looking for a home for her cake decorating supplies....would I be interested? Absolutely. So went her home last night and told her I would take everything she had...what did she want for it all....how about $100.....sold. So this morning was like Christmas!
Her collection of things included approx 50 different books (Wilton yearbooks (79-89), Wilton Wedding cakes, etc), about 30 different pans (wonder molds, standup bear, lamb, hex, petal, etc), approx 100 different cutters/veiners, 20 separator plates, pegs, columns, acrylic stand, different size cake boards, boxes and a ton of sugar/chocolate molds, gumpaste people and baroque decoration molds. So much stuff...some of which I have never seen.
Anyway, I just wanted to share with other's who would share my enthusiasm for such a great find! Thanks for reading!!
