I was helping my boyfriend's mom move over the weekend and she gave me this box and said "here you can have this." I didn't know what it was until I got home and opened it. It was a box full of cake decorating supplies!! I was so excited. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. icon_biggrin.gif It was mostly stuff from like the 80's and 90's but who cares? I now have a full decorating tip set, which I only had a few tips to work with when I first started. I have bake even strips, which I have always wanted but couldn't get because of a fixed income. A trim and turn cake turn table, which is a lot better than my home made put the cake board on a big pot and spin that. And a whole bunch of other stuff like stencils, patterns, Wilton yearbooks, candy molds, parchment bags, and more!! I feel like baking now!! icon_biggrin.gif Now I don't have to ask for this stuff for my birthday. I could tell my friends but they wouldn't understand like you guys would. Thanks for listening, I just had to tell someone how excited I am.

OOH...so fun! Cake toys the best! But this is an expensive hobby. Glad to hear you got a big box of fun. Now go bake and take some pictures so we can all see!

Yes, I was really excited. I definitely did not expect that! I knew my boyfriend's mom did cakes a long time ago but I never knew she had so much cake decorating supplies. I was so thankful she gave all that stuff to me!

That is a very cool surprise......kinda how I got into this too!

My baby sis's best friend passed away icon_sad.gif My baby sis was one who went and helped clean out Bev's home. She knew I "dabbled" in the cake stuff, so she packed all of Bev's cake tools (TONS of things) and I received them as my christmas gift 4 years ago. Bev's family was thrilled that her things were put to use once again. I really appreciated the gift, and my sis thinks of her good friend every time I bring them a beautiful cake. icon_smile.gif

Now, you have the chance to pay it forward with all the nice cakes you will be able to do!!! Congratulations!!!

That is really sweet! sounds like a Thank You cake to me and a perfect time to dive in to that stuff! Yay!

I too ask for cake stuff for my birthday and Mothers day, etc. ever since I started decorating. That's so funny. I'm so happy for you... can't wait to see your cakes. Happy Caking.
