So now that I gave you some nut tips I'll give you some cheap tips, that in my case are a bit related with my nuts. See the nice plate where I keep them? Well that's actually a turnable plate that also dobles as a cake decorating device...
I live in a place where finding cake decorating ustensils is very difficult or very expensive, so I usually prefer to use imagination rather than money. Imagination is much cheaper I tell you! So for a "Wilton style" cake decorating turntable, I use a regular cake stand on top of my walnut plate. Cool, hein?
What about these wooden sticks? Have you ever checked the prices of big no-handles rolling pins? Well I have and was not impressed! So on a recent trip to the DYI store I got a huge wood stick that was originally sold to use on some gardening thingy. I got it cut right there in the store and got two amazing rolling pins with different sizes for less than 3€!
Before using I sanded them a bit and they were good to go. I think Alton Brown would be so proud of me!
Do you have any saving-money tips yourself?
