Wow!!! I always wondered how decorators got that neat pattern ūüėÉ. Thanks for sharing the video
I have the measuring spoon and it's awesome.  Found one almost like it at Bed Bath and Beyond only it's stainless steel and my PC one is plastic.  I like the steel one better.  I think it was more expensive though. I absolutely LOVE the easy conversions magnet.  I ALWAYS forget how many TBSPs are in this or how many cups are in that and this thing says it all.  On one side it tells you how to dbl, triple a measurement and on the other side it just tells you 1 cup = xyz...
ITA.  Dry cake, no one would even touch it.  You ask for a slice to investigate the issue and suddenly they've thrown the whole thing away, you know because it was so totally inedible.  Excuse after excuse after excuse until you finally give in.  Or ignore them. I missed that this was cake for a 14yo boy.  My son is only 6yo but I have a teenage daughter and she is the kitchen table nibbler.  If you don't watch your plate she'll steal it, whatever it is.  Even if you've...
And I "like" businesses that have a FB page if I actually am a customer and really do like them.  That way I can stay connected to what special offers they might have going on etc.  But if I've never been a customer the first thing I look for is their website.  I scour it and then decide if: A) I can afford to be their customerB) do they have things I'd like thereC) How far away from me are they and will it be worth the drive (I live in the middle of nowhere so driving to...
Cakepops, truffles and very elaborate cupcakes are still the big thing around here.  Oh and donuts!  A new shop opened up and it's all anyone can talk about.  I haven't been because I don't care for donuts but apparently they are pretty awesome.     I did notice that there are a few European style bakeries popping up.  I was trying my hardest to hunt down some macaroons to buy for a friend who adores them but none of the bakeries I always buy from does them.  So I...
I did that for my dh's cousin ONCE.  She brought me a box of Always Save chocolate cake mix, a bag of off brand confectioner's sugar that was soooo lumpy it took forever to sift out the hard chunks, and several Glad disposable containers full of the ingredients listed on the back of the box of cake mix.  I was like, seriously?  I used her crappy ingredients and returned her plastic containers when I delivered the cake.  The cake was terrible, so dry and tasteless.  Of...
I made a wedding cake for my BIL and his new bride last August.  The wedding was to be in the barn but she assured me the cake would be in the house where it would be nice and cool.  She insisted on buttercream because she hated fondant. When I showed up to deliver the AC wasn't on and it was a bazillion degrees in the house.  The cake instantly started to sweat.  No sooner did I get it assembled did it start to melt, all the decoration started to slide off, the...
There is a bakery downtown in the city that is famous for their cinnamon rolls.  She started it as a cupcake shop but her cinnamon rolls quickly took over.  I know people who call ahead to make sure she's got them in stock and will drive quite a distance to get one.  I despise cinnamon rolls (I know, what's wrong with me?) but I have yet to hear anyone knock her rolls.  I'd try to find a tasty, reliable recipe for those if you can.  I've always had good luck tweaking Ree...
I LOVE the little boy on the floor off to the left with his tongue out :D  "Oh boy floor cake!!!"  The pictures are beautiful, the cake and cupcakes were beautiful too. 
It looked real to me.  I did have trouble with man or woman too so I can't poke fun at remnant ;)  I figured it out once he came around the table though.  That link leads to a lot of other real wedding cake fails that are really sad too.  This was just a demo though.  A really poorly done one.
