I get really excited about new materials and tools for the jewelry and cakes I make. There are tons of tools available for both, so I'm pretty confident that I will never run out of possibilities when it comes to spending money to support my habits.
Today, I hit the mother lode of cake tools. Lowell got me a Cricut Cake machine, and it was waiting for me when I got home from work. It's like a scrapbooking printer/template cutting machine...FOR CAKE. Instead of paper, it cuts fondant and gumpaste and frosting sheets. Crazy, I know.
Ben made plans for us to go running together and then make cupcakes this evening, so it is still sitting in the box. But I know exactly what it looks like, all shiny and red in its food safe glory:
In the caking community, there is great debate about the CC. Some people write posts about how it is the "worst thing ever to happen to cake" and it is ruining the caking profession.
I think the worst thing that can happen to cake is to drop it on the floor, frosting side down. Call me a sellout, but I know that thing is going to be FUN!
