In preparation for V-Day baking (Valentine cutouts are a long-time family tradition, and a new recipe for Red Velvet cupcakes has me inspired) , I have been looking for baking decorations. Have you checked out the prices on these lately? It's OUTRAGEOUS!Not V-day related, but I did find these on sale for $1 each (Halloween, Generic & Patriotic) to save for future use.
Then I stopped by a tag sale at a 'Country Bakery' that was going out of business... picked up a few goodies for resale, some kitchen linens for me and 'stuff' for future projects - then, what should I spy ????
...A LARGE box full of cake decorations - many new, others mostly full Red/White/Pink Hearts! Fall Leaves! Orange & Black Pumpkins! Patriotic! Pastel Eggs! Retro colored Spring flowers! Every rainbow color of sugar! - 33 Total. Now, I normally won't go anywhere near food items at your average sale, but these were from a known bakery, clean, a lot were new & sealed, and well under expiration dates. Plus a couple of packages of cupcake papers and a couple of number candles! "HOW MUCH?"... "Two dollars if you take the whole box."
I guess I better get busy baking.
