when there is so much cool stuff to buy! Everyday I find something new I just have to have! Fortunately my budget keeps my supplies from taking over the whole house. icon_smile.gif (my kitchen on the other hand....) And I have only been doing this a year!

Yeah, I found out about Oreo molds on this site. I now have so many (because you can't get just one) that a whole portion of my cake cupboard is stocked with these things! I hate to think of how many cookie cutters I've added to my collection since joining CC, too. (Too many, "Oh, that's cute...gotta have it!")

I here ya! I told my dh I will need to find someone who would love to inherit my stuff when I'm gone. detective.gif (and love to use it as much as I have) None of my children are interested in making cakes! icon_cry.gif I don't want all my things just going to good will.

Spinningleaf (sp?) has a tremendous selection of high quality molds, a video to show you how to do the chocolate covered Oreos, and fantastic service! I don't know if they're still doing it, but new customers were given a free mold with their first purchase.

P.S.- Use Doublestuffs when doing these, or there will be too much chocolate (that's coming from someone who LOVES chocolate). And the mint Doublestuffs are divine!

Oh yeah, I agree. The different cake stands alone cost a lot, and I'm talking about the clear PVC ones you can get from Glass on Silk and they are reasonable and fast shipping. I'm not making much at all on that one! I was so frustrated this weekend with a wedding cake that turned out just awful, and said I was going to quit. My daughter said, don't quit mom. I want to work with you when I'm older. She's 7 years old and loves to decorate. I just have having to buy everything all the time. I'm off to Hobby Lobby for greenery, etc. Thankfully they run sales all the time. Hang in there! I won't tell you what I spend with CK Products and Hobby Lobby with the 40% off Wilton Coupon. TOO MUCH!

But seriously, don't go to this site unless you want to get sucked in!! These are fabulous and so easy! Fill a cavity halfway, push in a cookie and top off with more chocolate adn let set. It's that easy.

I took these to a girls' beach weekend and a friend of mine, after eating a peanut butter chocolate covered oreo came over and kissed me on top of my head!

Ok, I am soooo in on this. That sounds absolutely divine...would you mind sharing the recipe for the PB chocolate?

OK I'm sucked in. I have been dipping oreos and ritz since I was 4, my grandmother taught me and it has been a Christmas tradition at my house since. I love doing it, but it gets kinda tedious standing and dipping in the double boiler then dipping out etc. I love the how you can easily do the deco for the tops of them. (Another tedious task before.) Definately placing my order tomorrow. icon_redface.gifthumbs_up.gif

O and BTW. It really is a good thing I live so far from places like HobbyLobby. I don't do alot of net ordering, paranoid. But I will have to break that for those things. I will go broke once again!

well I just placed my order at spinningleaf. I am actually teaching a cake decorating/candy making studio at my daughter's school this semester, so I think that I something the kids will have fun with (that is my excuse for ordering and I am sticking to it icon_biggrin.gif)

The PB filled oreos...I have not seen those...are they one of those limited edition flavors? I did order the mold for the nutterbutters in case I can't find the PB oreos.

I don't think the PB Oreo's are a limited production. Places like WalMart seem to carry a bigger selection than my neigborhood gorcery store, though, so you might want to check there.

I found banana cream filled Oreos at Wal-Mart a couple weeks ago. My DH smeared peanut butter on them and ate the whole box while I was sleeping! So, apparently their good. icon_biggrin.gif

Hey, has anybody used those chocolate truffle molds for cake balls? Would that work?
