I just HAD to but the Babycakes Cake Pop maker when Kohl's had them on sale AND I had a $10.00 off coupon. I've only used it a couple of times but it IS pretty nifty.

A few years ago, after I took the Wilton classes, Michael's and their coupons were my best friends! I accumulated a bunch of stuff to feed my addiction.

I hear you! I just started making cakes for my family (mostly kids) and of course need different tools for every cake. Can I do without? Sure, but I have convinced myself that it'll take twice as long and I just have to get all new toys. Haven't splurged on the Scott Clark Wolley DVDs and cutters/veiners, but I probably will. Also have my eye on the Agbay. Completely unnecessary when I only bake once a month or
so.

I have been buying "tools" since forever....I have to now retain myself and ask if I really need it...do I have a place to put it. I think as your talent grown, styles change and interests change..you buy what you need or think you need.

The saying "There is always room for jello".....Well.."There is always room for a new tool"....lol

Wow, my cricut is my big splurge and I used it the day I got it and all the time since.. I love how simple and easy it makes cutting specific designs since I have no artistic talent.. probably my favorite thing I have cut with it is the Superman logo, Batman logo and toy story characters. I also have terrible piped writing so it is a godsend for that. I have used it on many of my cakes.
The trick has been for me to use mostly gumpaste and freeze it for a few minutes before cutting.

Very nice luckylibra...maybe I should just bite the bullet and open up that cricut box! Do you use it with SCAL or any other program or just the cartridges?

Let me see.... I have the Cricut, Edible image printing system, Air Brush & Compresser, Cake Stacker and all kinds of videos, tools and molds. When I go to visit my daughter I have to stop by the Cake Art store and the Nicolas Lodge Sugar Art store before I get there. Those are my "Toys are us" My next purchase is the Agaby. I have a small fortune in toys !!!!!!!!!!

I have SCAL but used the demo on MTC to do the batman and superman.. just hit stop before it did the final cut through the piece.. icon_cool.gif [/i]
And I have a friend who has tons of cartridges so she shares with me so I don't have to buy them all.

Oh, the tools...I don't have the bigggies (read pricey), like cricut, or an air brush or an agbay, and none of those are even really on my wish list. But I have pans, and cutters, and dusts and veiners and so many little tools and gadgets. It's really a good thing that the nearest good cake supply store is over an hour away from me and I dislike internet shopping. My 2 biggest weaknesses are cake stands and books. I think I'm up to about 20 books, including 5 or 6 Wilton yearbooks and a couple of "antiques" I've found at thrift stores. I put myself on cake stand restriction until I find a perfect footed square or a milk glass one. It's been tough but I did win one last night on a blog giveaway icon_biggrin.gif.

Edible image system from Icing Images, air brush from Ebay (what a bargain, love it), Magic Line square pans, many books and dvds, some still yet to come. I took a class with Becky Rink in the spring and just enrolled in four more with other well known cake artists toward the end of August. They're not a 'tool' but lots of fun. I'm mostly a hobby baker. I haven't splurged on agbay yet, but I can tell it's in my future. I went looking for the cricut when lots of posts were here about it being reduced but, haven't found one yet. Love cake tools and love to learn about them as well as learn new techniques.

I love to collect cake pans and dessert cookbooks. I've completely filled up the cake pan pantry my husband built me. Time for a new addition.

I think my biggest splurge is the Agbay - love it by the way. I am also accumulating a lot of cutters, molds, dusts, etc. If I ever realize my dream of opening a home business, it will all come in handy. In the meantime, I have fun practicing with everything. icon_smile.gif
