With fondant being the new rage in cake decorating, this 11 piece cake decorating tool set is the perfect set for beginners to professionals alike.  It offers so much for such a great price.  Never having worked with fondant before, this was a great opportunity for me to try this set out. The rolling pin works great, and so much better than my little wooden hand held just for that purpose. The cutter comes with 3 attachments which you can see stores very easily in the handle.  Then the 16 different tips to shape and mold, and swirl and design are totally awesome.  Just let your imagination go on this.  When I think of decorated cakes, I think of my cousin's daughter that is so talented in this area. She loves using fondant.

When I first got this set I was so excited to see all the amazing tools.  It would have been nice to see some examples on how to use some of these tools.  The 2nd one from the top is for making flower leaves.  The 6th tool down can be used to make patterns in the frosting (the comb side). The other end is used for making smiley mouths and ears.  The 3rd tool down is for creating star shapes in your fondant. The deeper you press, the larger the star and bigger the hole.  The opposite end is great for eyes.  The 7th tool down is for creating shell patterns.  The opposite end can be used as a knife for cutting fondant, or for any other purpose like straight lines.  The 4th tool down is the ball tool that helps provide more detail to flower petals.  For further details, check out this youtube video.

You can't go wrong with these tools.  Soon you'll be decorating cakes like a pro, or creating all sorts of fun things.  I'm looking forward to creating and decorating my first fondant cake, but in the meantime, I think these are great tools for the grandkids to use with their edible play dough.

I did receive this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.  I'm very impressed by this tool set and all that it offers by FuStore.

I was also impressed when charging multiple devices at the same time and how fast everything charged.  With the 2 port wall charger, devices would take 8-10 hours.  My devices were charged in about 4 hours by using the Lumsing charger.  This works great.  It saves us so much not only on time, but on electricity as well.  There have many times when my husband needs his phone charged up fast.  The Lumsing charger is his first go to device now.  We especially like being able to each charge all of our devices at the same time, and can now do so, with this 5 port USB charger.

Lemon Balm Lemonade Recipe

I've grown lemon balm for years, and with my last move forgot to take some with me.  While visiting my son a week ago, I grabbed several leaves from his plants and made Lemon Balm Lemonade. It adds a nice additional lemon flavor that I like.
Ingredients:
4 lemons, juiced  (I used the equivalent in lemon concentrate.)
1/2 cup fresh lemon balm leaves
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup boiling water
2 1/2 cups water
Directions:
Boil 2/3 cup water and sugar together either on the stove, or in the microwave until sugar is dissolved.  Add the lemon balm leaves and slightly crush.  Let stand at least 15 minutes.  Remove the leaves.  Add the lemon juice and 2 1/2 cups water.  Serve with ice, or refrigerate until cold.
