Yes folks, it was in storage for two years, but I have located my mixer! Hubby bought it for me back when I was actively pursuing a hobby in cake decorating. I enjoy the artistic/creative side of cake decorating, but sadly, I like cake eating even more.
I took several classes at Michael’s, you know, the home decor etc. chain store. I also bought hundreds of dollars worth of tools. I could do smooth fondant, edible flowers, even tiered cakes. I was actually getting quite skilled. I even applied for a job in a grocery store’s cake department, but was beat out by someone with more experience.
I finally joined Weight Watchers and stopped decorating cakes. I have gained and lost the same 40 pounds twice since then.
So when I found the mixer the other day I thought, well I won’t be mixing mashed potatoes until November, so maybe I will try a cake….
See next week’s blog for the result.
