After these few weeks of non-pastry/desserts/anything-sweet-related posts, you're probably thinking the same thing I am:
Where's the Bakery related stuff in "Nads' Bakery"?!
I promise... less food and more baking related posts from here on out.........
.......maybe... at least for the time being.
I'm making these decorated cookies for my friend's birthday so I'll be posting photos of those as soon as I'm done with it, but in the meantime...
There is a restaurant supply store called Chefs Toys that I go to quite often for my kitchen supplies. After shopping at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and other ridiculously over-priced stores at the beginning of my baking adventures finding this store was like finding $20 in a pair of pants I haven't worn in a long time. Ok, well maybe a little better than that. Items are significantly cheaper and I often find things I wouldn't find at other kitchen supply stores... like these babys.
Circular silpats for cake pans! Well, not the actual Silpat brand but definitely close. There were no price tags on them so I went to the check out counter and asked them to do a price check.
ME: "Could I get a price check on this, please?" as I held out the 6" circular silpat.
CHEFS' TOYS PERSONNEL: "Let's see. It is, two forty ($2.40)."
ME: "TWO FORTY???"
CTP: "Yup. Two forty."
ME: "NO! .......................................REALLY??"
CTP: "Yeah. Two forty."
