Such a cute pan to make Christmas cakes -- little snowmen and mittens...adorable.
I was thrilled to find this one many years ago. I really did make homemade ravioli back then and I thought this would be great to make uniform little pillows of culinary delights. The operative word in that sentence was did. I haven't made them once since I bought this.
Ditto for a checkerboard cake, canape breads, or decorated pastries. I buy all sorts of cake decorating tips and never decorate cakes. While at a family gathering last month, the conversation got around to useless gadgets that we all own. It was interesting to me to find that 3 of my 4 sisters-in-law also own a checkerboard cake pan. Not one has ever made a cake in it! I suggested that we all get together and have a checkerboard cake baking party. Who knows maybe we will.
This post was inspired when I was trying to find a place to store my most recent purchase of a cast iron corn muffin pan.
My mission for September is to use at least one of these items.
A couple of days ago I was in Wally's World and I remembered that I had been looking at some deck rugs in May. I thought I would wait and see if they were marked down later. I walked back to the garden center and sure enough there they were marked down to less than half price!
I bought a neutral color. This afternoon I put it out on the deck.
I think it has possibilities. I plan to bring out cushions, quilted chair backs, etc. tomorrow. Check back tomorrow night or Sat. morning to see what I do with it.
6:14pm update: What the heck is this????
As soon as I hit publish, this came up. Is blogger now starting to throw up advertising every time we post? Has anyone else seen this?
