Dear Mr. Clause,
I have been a very good girl this year. With the exception of a little neglect of my husband and 3 kids. You see, I just found the coolest gift that has been hiding for over 33 Years! It was never under the tree all of christmas past, or I surely would have opened it. I never asked for it either, cause I would have searched high and low. It just seems that one unexpecting day, I happened to be in the kitchen and the wrapping began reveal one of my greatest passions in life.
A few assembly line bakery birthday cakes too many, a few, "I could do that's," some great tips and inspiration from my fellow CCers and some serious trial & error.... Viola`!! There she was staring me in the face.
If you look at my cake gallery, you might be able to tell that I am REALLY trying. With a big family and a few friends, I practice all I can. The only problem is - the lack of tools, I am in serious "need" of, and WHICH BRAND IS THE BEST ???? Hence the letter.
* Airbrush - brand, model & accessories
*Cricuit - No idea where to begin
*YOur favorite cake tool
So, if you or your little cake elves would be so kind as to reply. I will get my final list out ASAP. Thanks for all the goodies in advance. And I will try not to neglect my loved ones as much, if its at all possible. Maybe you can slip my hubs & kiddos something real nice as well. They deserve it! And you can look forward to a nice slice of italian cream & a tall glass of milk in a few weeks.
Airbrush: I don't own one yet but if i were to buy one I'll buy the grex
cricuit: not sure if it's worth the expense, plus I really enjoy doing things by hand or with cutters etc.
Favorite tool: Agbay leveler! and Ateco mat. Those are the basic that you'll need on every cake. The other things you might need or not, but this two are the basics!
KA 6 qt Pro, extra beater, extra bowl
That's all I can think of right now that I've gotten that completely changed my caking experience!
I LOVE First Impression Molds.
I have an edible image printer on my xmas wish list.
OOoo. Didn't even think about a mixer! I know I have to have an airbrush.
My favorite tool is supposed to be used for vening, but I LOVE IT for smoothing edges.
That Santa letter is too precious!!! Favorite tool: my Cook's industrial mixer. It's a big time saver when mixing multiple batches. Airbush: KopyKake's, can't remember the model. Again a great timesaver. And the Cricut? I too am contemplating that for Xmas. I think it would save a lot of time from what I'm reading here on CC, not to mention my poor aching hand from all the piping. Hope you get all you wish for!
