Love it DD. I have eyed those off for a while. So far I have resisted temptation as I have no room (need a few kids to move out!!)  :D

Today I brought my self a cupcake caddy that holds 24 cupcakes and included a muffin baking tray which all clips together. Only cost around $12.  I seen it last week and thought I don't need that cause I have enough containers. But I just couldn't resist today.

O.k, I have to seriously turn the computer off!
I just read an email from Amazon, saying that the cupcake tower I had added to my wish list....has now decreased in price.

well it was lunch time, and I went into the bookshop and bought "dinner with The Baker". Probably was a bit hungry at the time  :-)) but it has some beautiful recipes (and photo's) for biscuits, bread (even has a sourdough starter recipe), tarts, pies & quiches, pastries, cakes & gateaux, and some afternoon delights. OMG what happened to my resolve???? I feel like cooking up a storm now tho!

Apart form the cupcake carrier which has arrived in record time I also purchased the cuisipro 3 in 1 funnel, for the 2nd time - gave the first to DD after her seeing how often I used it. Maddy this thread is bad, bad, bad - BUT oh what fun!!!!!!  :D  :D

Well today wasn't my fault  I went shopping.
Hubby sent me on an mission to buy some UGLY boots in my opinion, down at Rivers in Torquay.
I said to him you can buy them online.....but he didn't to pay $8.95 in postage.....LOL.....stupid mistake!
As if I was only gonna buy the boots!

So  after I got the boots, to my surprise the local IGA stocked heaps of "Simply No Knead" stuff  8)

So I got an extra cob loaf tin



8 bread roll tins



Dutch cinnamon, mixed spice, and bread improver.





and other items that I didn't really need  :P
