I hope someone has a brilliant idea for me....
Every 4 years, we have a National Show, and every branch of our Guild is asked to donate items for the Goody bags which entrants receive. It doesn't have to be expensive (you have to send about 350 items), but it does have to be something novel which a cake decorator could use. Some past examples are a "puff" bag for your cornflour, a holder for your paintbrushes, etc.
Has anyone got any suggestions? I would really like to send something special and different, but obviously budget is an issue!
My most useful new gadget is a water pen for my fondant. I found mine in the scrapbooking section at Michael's.
make-up brushes (or similar. for applying dusts to flowers), stamens (bought in bulk then sub-divide), tip brush (for cleaning icing tubes)....350, huh? Geez....
That's a lot of favors! Something made of paper or plastic would probably be the least expensive. Disposable pastry bags? Cupcake papers? A paper template for something (maybe cupcake papers)? Doilies?
Disposable icing bag filled with sprinkles or m&m's or dragees?
A paper template for something (maybe cupcake papers)? Doilies?
from me! Print two at a time on cardstock (maybe even more per sheet...I don't know for sure). That's a daggum good idea!
Cupcake wrappers is a good idea. If you have access to a Cricut and have one of the wrapper cartridges, you can just cut them all out with no effort.
I like the paper template idea for cupcake wrappers - Unique but not expensive! ... Unfortunately we don't really have Cricut here, so it will have to be done the old fashioned way...
Thanks for the good ideas so far, please keep them coming - I knew I could rely on CC
What is a water pen?
Shazzi, You don't even have to cut them out. Just provide the outline, maybe printed on fancy paper.
Thanks CuttheCake, I think I'm going to have to go get me one of those I am also spilling my water. I wonder if it would be useful to have 1 with water and 1 with vodka for removing oops...Hmmmmm
