I scope out the ShopRite circular each week and can let you know when the cake mix is on sale. Does anyone shop at any of the other NJ supermarkets? If so, can you keep us posted on sales?? Usually once or twice a year, ShopRite puts DH on sale for about 49 cents!! I definitely won't miss that one the next time around!

I'm so glad someone started this thread. My name is Penny and I am new to New Jersey (Howell, just east of Jackson and Six Flags). I'm a stay at home mom to 3 girls (5, 4 and 2 1/2). I've always loved baking but it wasn't until last year that I really got into cake decorating. Last fall I finally got to take the Wilton courses. I have so much to learn but, I am loving it!!!!

Penny,
How do you find time to bake w/3 little ones? I am just starting out also, I'm currently in the middle of the Wilton 2 course, although I'm not a stay at home mom I don't work in the summer, I'm not sure how I will bake when I go back to work. I have 2 boys ages 6 and 4 and I am challenged by finding time to bake and giving them the attention that they demand.

It's not always easy, that's for sure. I can usually get icing made and the baking done during the day with the girls but most of my decorating gets done at night after they're in bed. Can make for some late nights as I'm not very fast yet. icon_confused.gificon_lol.gif When I made my daughter's Bratz cake, we were back in CT that week and my father-in-law took the girls for a few hours (with the help of my brother-in-law - he wasn't up to the task alone icon_lol.gif ) Alone time to do cake decorating, now that's unheard of for me!! icon_eek.gif With 3 little kids, alone time doesn't come along very often. icon_wink.gif

Hi, my name is Sandi and I'm also from Berlin! Over the spring I took the three Wilton classes at AC Moore, since I could always bake a good tasting cake and needed to learn to make a presentable one. As you can see by my pics I'm not as experienced as most. However, I do enjoy reading all the great tips here!

It's in Atlantic City Oct 21-23 at the AC Convention Center. Here's the link (but I can only get into it during the day.)

Von the A&P, if anyone has any of those nearby, usually has some good sales every now and then, I get my mixes on sale there.

If you have a Wal Mart nearby you can get DH and BC cake mixes there for under $1 a box. You can also get their brand of confectioners sugar cheaper than in the supermarket. Sam's club is also great for getting milk, eggs, heavy cream, bananas, fresh strawberries, flour (big bags) brown sugar etc. at good prices. I get heavy cream for less than $2 a QUART!

Actually we are going to Wildwood... lol... We plan a trip every year to a different place.. 5 or 6 of us. We had such a good time last year just hanging out in the condo room we rented drinking sangria and dancing and laughing. Almost didnt get to dinner cause no one was sober enough to drive.
