Found a bunch of sewing storage goodies on Ebay this morning. Thought I’d share…
I bought my Tupperware Pie Wedge Storage many years ago to store condiments in the fridge. Now I use it in my sewing room. You can use it for needles, snaps, buttons or any other small items you want organized.
Now, if you have a VERY small stash, how about this?
Last night I baked a carrot cake with cream cream frosting and a bunch of hot pink cupcakes.
Sometimes I think I’m brilliant…like last night when I came across a new bottle of this in my baking pantry:
Yippee! I figured this gel would be easier to work with than my standard food coloring liquid. Wrong. I tried to take a tiny bit out with a toothpick (as a teaspoon wouldn’t fit in the container). Got some on my hands trying to get the gel off the toothpick. Not a good idea. I’d show you a photo of how my fingers are now stained hot pink, but hence, no way to upload my pictures.
As that wasn’t enough, I then licked my fingers. Mistake #2. That gel is GROSS…it tastes like bad chemicals.
So you think I can’t be any dumber. Think again. When I finished mixing the gel into the pre-made cake icing, I licked the spoon…DUMB. Mistake #3. There was still a blob of gel concentrated at the handle of the spoon.
Ok, so I can live with the hot pink fingers (it is my favorite color, ya know) and the gross chemical taste of the gel. But seeing the kids make a YUCK face when they bit into their cupcakes was disappointing. Another failed attempt at being Susie Homemaker.
I’m thinking I got a little carried away with the gel and perhaps added too much of it to the icing. But not to worry–Mr. Diva™ is once again bringing the friggin’ bowling team over for Sunday dinner. Guess what they’re having for dessert? I’m having Carrot Cake. Let’s hope they don’t notice the kids’ hot pink lips.
