Oh, Martha.  This is my first post of many more to come about her and her fabulous products.  Like this one!

I don’t even have a plastic one.  I turn my cakes on an upside down bowl (tear, tear).  The silver finish goes well with the mixer of my dreams, too!

I have found the mixer of my dreams.  It’s the Kenwood KMo23 Titanium Major Mega Pack.  I didn’t really pay attention to mixers until I saw a posting from Cakejournal and noticed that it was a pretty good looking kitchen gadget.  Of course I did some reseach to see if it had good reviews and it did.  The only thing is that I would have to have order it all the from the UK.  However, I learned that the Delonghi brand is its American counterpart so hopefully I’ll be able to own one or the other.

New toys!

Yipee! I finally decided on doing the Chanel Cambon tote in black and white for the baby shower.  Now, its not your traditional diaper bag but if I were a mom I would definitely lug Huggies in this bag.  I’m really looking foward to using the embosser tool for the quilted effect.

I need to think of the baby toys that will accompany the tote so that everyone can tell its for a baby shower.  I’ve read that it’s best to use gumpaste for this.  I’ll have to practice tonight because I haven’t worked with gumpaste yet.  Although, I’m sure it’s very similar to fondant with a more clay like effect.
