This week has been sooo busy, I will be posting my cookie creations tomorrow, as well as a GIVEAWAY!!! So please check back here tomorrow :)
It's Friday...which means....Another Pinned it and did it! I am having a lot of fun doing these small ones while I am working on a BIG overhaul of my "cookie craft room." I hope to be finished with it in the next couple weeks and of course I will post pictures here!
I have been seeing many pictures of how cookiers are storing their piping tips and decided I *need* to get my tips out of the black Laduree box where they have been sitting in a jumbled mess...and into something more secure, time saving, and organized. So here they are!
The containers are called "Snap and Go" and I found them in the jewelry section of Michaels for about $6 for all 6! They are the perfect height to actually stand your tips up, which I like because you can see the tip openings....because a "1" tip from Wilton is very different than a "1" tip from Ateco.
I wanted them to look a little prettier so instead of the normal label maker labels, I bought some rub transfers for $4 from Paper Presentation (my fave store!).
So there they are, organized, clean, and pretty!
On the subject of tips...I have a tip for cleaning your tips! I know a lot of people use this $2 Wilton tip cleaner:
However, I have always found the bristles to be slightly too large and the wire handle bends way to easily. Lots of frustration.
Then one day in Sephora, I had a idea....their free spoolies! They are literally the PERFECT width for fitting through the tip of a squeeze bottle and the little metal end is the perfect size to poke through the tip of a #1 tip and remove any dried pieces. The plastic handle is nice and sturdy and you can even throw them out after a couple uses...very sanitary and FREE!
|Love these! Thanks Sephora :)|
Thats all for now. I have a few other things on my mind, so I may be posting later tonight. It is so crazy this new life I have created for myself. It is definitely a change from the normal 9-6 I was used to, but I am really settling into my groove and loving this new life!
