Thank you everyone! I haven't laughed this hard since the thread on the shape of someone's backyard many months ago.
I completely forgot about my grandma's cake tester! I'm going to find that sucker and start using it.
As far as useless stuff...someone gave me these curved pieces of plastic. I have no clue what they're for so to me they're useless until I figure out what to do with them.
Those curved pieces of plastic are flower formers.
Thank you cblupe!!
