I am TOTALLY in the minority on the flyers. I love getting flyers to local businesses; I love them even more if they are for a local restaurant that has just opened up. If there is a discount attached if I bring the flyer with me then I usually tuck it away in my purse and hang onto it. Unless it’s for one of those tax places, carpet cleaning businesses, or a new nail salon which is usually the kind of flyers I get on my car.I sell AVON and made the mistake of putting a...
The AOC crew used to post here a while back. I liked that show. I tried to watch Cake Boss on Netflix but I just couldn't take them seriously. It all seemed fake.

I know! You can just imagine what that cake tasted like lol.
Any update?
I’ve always used straws. I just cut them a little shorter than the tier and stick them into the cake. Sometimes if the decoration at the end of the wire is really heavy and the wires start to swing around and move a lot I’ll pull the straws out, squeeze the cake out and then reinsert in the cake. Then I fill the straws a bit with royal icing, put in the wires and let it sit until the icing has hardened. That usually keeps the wires from moving around. I try not to use...
