Wow what a great question..10 things i couldn't do without.
1.You know i'll say that the first thing I couldn't do without is my kitchen,because i have such space i know how to manuever in it,this is speaking from experience because i took my stuff over to help someone out and it just wasn't the same i didn't feel relaxed and I know sometimes you have to work in other work environments but my kitchen is it for me.
2.Kitchen aid is a great investment.
3. Michaels and other cake decorating supply stores or hobby stores.
4.Baker's Joy.I've notice the difference in my cakes when iturn them out onto the cooling racks,I use it as opposed to usuing another product.
5.A marble counter top.
6.Air conditioning..especially in the warmer months when someone insists on royal icing and it's 90+ degrees outside and you have to work on royal flowers...
7.Disposable decorator bags
8.Parchment paper and Doilies.
9.Icing tips# 199( without it that cake wouldn't have a classy border to stand on and tip #47 ( oh the basket weave is such and eye catcher.)
10.A camera.( you just can't put a portfolio together without it.)
I know i avoided the other stuff but most of it's been named and we all can't do without our decorator's caddy's and such but i had to give credit where credit was due because I'll testify without Michael's nearby we'd all be ordering certain supplies online.
I do have other thing's i couldn't work without but i'll name them later.
And a big thank you to Flower formers,they make a world of difference for those royal flowers.[/b]
