This past weekend, I came into possession of something that I have been coveting from the moment I laid my eyes on it.
It is magnificent. I can't think of a word for it other than magnificent.
And its all thanks to one of my besties who knows how crazy I am and feeds my addiction :)
In fact, she was just as excited as I was was to watch me open it! If anyone is wondering how I have the motivation and determination to keep up with school AND fulfill my baking dreams, you should know by now that I'm obviously not doing it alone. I would be doing nothing without my friends and family who support me and keep me going when I feel like I have absolutely no energy left.
Okay put the tissue box away...no more sentimentally stuff.
My friend, T managed to hook me up with this beautiful beast sent down from the cake heavens:
I know most people who read my blog probably don't know what this is or the significance of it.
But to those who are staring at the computer with a glow across your face....trust me...it is every bit as good as the picture.... and better.
I will be doing a comprehensive post on the Ultimate Decorating Set soon including a comparison of the price of the set to buying each item individually. I can't promise that it will come soon but it will happen one day.
The retail value of the set is $470 but if you thought for even a second that I would fork that over, then we need to go on a few more dates because you don't know how cheap I am. Rest assured....I got this baby for a HUGE steal.
I'm getting flustered all over again... I think I need a paper bag.
Needless to say, I remain indebted for life to my friend T for hooking me up.
The next few weeks will be a bit packed as I get ready for finals and finish up assignments and have multiple crises over grad school applications where I drown my sorrows in junk food and try to convince myself that my life won't be over if it doesn't work out. I will try to squeeze in as much baking as I can.
PS: I'm wondering if I should cancel Multicultural Monday altogether. I'm always missing it and I never end up trying the recipes anyway. Thoughts?
