and wants my list. Being a relative newbie cake addict, I'd like to put some caking stuff on there.
Would you guys please give me some suggestions by letting me know your favorite resources - books, mags, videos, gadgets, must-haves, etc.
Thanks in advance for sharing!
a good leveler and a good sized silcone fondant mat ( I like Ateco's giant blue mat)
I would love to see what people say to this as Santa has called me as well!
A good stand mixer
large and up-to-date oven
set of round cake pans
set of square cake pans
a couple of 11X15 pans
disposable decorating bags
lots of couplers and tips
large off-set spatula
small off-set spatula
laptop computer to view CC anywhere you go
Tips, tips, tips!!!!! I wish for at least 2 of every kind!
Square, Round, Oval, Comma pan sets
Bowls lots and lots of bowls!
My big ticket item for this year is a chest freezer! ( Seriously doubt Santa will bring it but hey a girl can wish!)
I want EVERYTHING on my wishlist from GSA!!!
Square cake pans
Oh I hope Santa's watching!
Kitchen Aid Mixer
Sugar Veil system
Some of these I already have and love.
and, since you're in Georgia, I'd ask for classes from Nic Lodge! He is fantastic!!!
I have enjoyed my Mailbox News and American Cake Decorationg magazines, too. I hope I get cake stuff from Santa, but my Santa usually doesn't want to shop from the newfangled internet and I don't need anything else from Hobby Lobby....
I would also suggest get 2 of everything, like pan sets. I started out with one set of round and square pans and then found myself having to wait around for something to bake because I needed another cake in that size
- Ditto on the Agbay
- Debbie Brown's Dream Wedding Cakes
- Another Tupperware Fix-n-Mix bowl (it's perfect for doing double batches of MMF and large quantity fillings and BC)
- Cuisinart 7 qt stand mixer
Thanks all! Lots of good ideas here - some I already have, some I know I want, and some I've never heard of. Keep 'em comin'!
Don't bother with SugarVeil
Leahs, you crack me up!
I want everything! I have so much crap already, it's taking over my house. But I just want everything else too! LOL.
I hope Santa brings you all everything you desire.
now for Chippi's list:
Fondant Matt for sure.
Metal Ball tool (i have plastic one)
A leaf mold and any others he can afford! haha
A nice cake board.
A metal turntable (professional one)
Disposable icing bags
Offset spatula's big n small
Pans, Pans and more pans
Small fondant rolling pin.
Wire for roses.
and a Manicure!
Nicholas Lodge DVD'S from his Sugar Art Collection
MailBox News and American Cake Decorating mags.
A GOOD airbrush and compressor
and extra pans,mixer bowls,paddles, ETC.
BUT MOST IMPORTANT !! Do it without going into debt.
pay as you learn and earn.
Oh, oh, I have another one!!!
My very own shop
I promise to be good...
Leahs, I bought some Sugar Veil (just the powder mix so I didn't waste too much money) and I haven't tried yet. Is it really that awful?
So many goodies!
Macsmom, unfortunately Santa is on a budget like the rest of us.
A girl can dream though!
I'm curious about the Sugarveil, too. Please, leahs, tell us some more about it.
CreationsByCaryl --- quick question! Does the silicone mat by Ateco have inches and lines on it? Thanks!
The SugarVeil mix is great. Definitely buy that. The machine thingy that they sell looks like an aquarium pump and an assortment of off the shelf items in a plastic tackle box. The price for it is crazeee. If it was something that was manufactured specially or created just for this purpose, then I'd be willing to pay $$ for it. But this is readily available stuff that could be assembled for much, much, much less$.
But the mix - theSugarVeil product is pretty cool.

Oh, yay!! Now I can't wait to try it.
I need to add to my list!
Airbrush pls oh pls
Website! to post my cakes on.
Oh and everything I want in a kids version I want to teach my grandbaby also
PS. If I'm really up on your list Santa a cake shop would be awesome too!!!!
things I love:
Wilton professional turntable
things I want:
Yello, upgrade that turntable to one made by BakeryCrafts or Ateco and you're talkin'.
Chippi, my website was built on a template and is hosted by web.com. It was way easy, and $12 a month. The statistics you get daily are worth the monthly fee. If you sign up for thier hosting you gat a free domain name.
A new airbrush, and a bigger storage area!
Santa already hinted to me NOT to buy that stand mixer I was eyeing in the ads a week or so ago. Yippee.......(but I want it now.) I'm still in the "taking classes" stage and practicing when I have some free time. I have a long way to go, but so far I've killed two mixers - one stand and one hand-held. They were both very old. Now they're dead!
Dear Santa .... I want it all, plus some.. and a big room just to hold it all!
I have been a very very good girl this yr!
I hope Santa brings me:
Cookie pans - nice big Chicago Metalic ones
Cupcake pans - both jumbo and standard
Lots of Silpats
Boxes and Bags in my design choice
A Delivery Van or Trailor
Hope Santa is good to you all!
