A new four inch shackling knife...Home Depot.
I sanitized it!
Use it to give me a super smooth finish on the side of the cake with one full turn on my turntable. Awesome!!

I just ordered 20 lbs of ivory fondant for a wedding cake this Friday. Usually make mmf but didn't think I wanted to spend the time making 20 lbs (may not need quite that much but close I bet). It also had to be ivory and I wanted to make sure I got a good ivory color without having to mix my own.

I'd love to buy some new letter cutters next. That seems to be the one thing I really miss when doing birthday and celebration cakes. I need a better variety of upper and lower case.

Last week I spent over $200.00 on supplies for June cakes. Everything from boards, boxes, frosting sheets, luster dust, pearls, etc.

My wish list does include new cutters, veiners and other stuff. But need to find the time, to use them.

I bought "The Mat" from Sweetwise and a level. I need so many things though. Was wondering, do you find it easier to make your own cake drums to order them thru the mail? Can't find anyone selling multiple sized drums locally but then again we don't have any cake shops for that stuff.

I bought a bunch of PME tips, some that I ordered in that finally came. I bought some LorAnn flavorings, a box of pastry bags and some Choco-pan for a small tier cake that is coming up. Nothing too exciting.

I haven't heard of it, but if it helps in smoothing cakes, I'm interested.

I'm guessing it's a spackling knife, which is like a putty knife.

They really are convenient for smoothing cakes and using with stencils, they come in a variety of sizes.

I bought The Mat a week ago and paid to have it shipped over night so I could use it for a cake that was due today. Of course it was on my front door when I arrived home from delivering that cake I made. I was really looking forward to having it since the was the biggest cake I've done so far.

If you paid extra to have it shipped overnight and they didn't do it you should ask for a refund for the extra shipping cost. It was a holiday weekend, so maybe that was why, bu they should have told you ahead of time.
