This was a fascinating thread. Great ideas from a couple of folks:
--Easter grass purchased after holiday, 75% off
--plastic ornament boxes purchased at 75% off after Christmas
--the NEW NON-STICK REYNOLDS ALUMINUM FOIL (this stuff is FABULOUS!!!!!) I strongly recommend that everyone run out to the market and get some. Take a roll to your Wilton royal icing class, they will LOVE you for it! You can also use it for chocolate, gelatin, and probably lots of other stuff!
I've still got quite a few royal icing drop flowers from my 2010 Wilton course. I was so excited that I could actually make cute flowers that I did about 300 flowers. Hmmmm......what do you do with 300 RI drop flowers? STORE THEM, of course. I went to the 99 cent store and got a bunch of containers with lids in different sizes and put them in there. I'm finally down to about the last 50.
chefjonms~~I live in sunny, non-humid So California, and it still took about 4-5 days for my RI petunias to dry completely. I'd give them a week to be safe and make a lot extra. Granted, I was a raw newbie at that point, but, they took forever to dry and broke like crazy.
happycakes1: "Clean as a whistle".
Robert "Rabbie" Burns (in his Author's Earnest Cry, 1786) provides us the first use of anything resembling the phrase clean as a whistle in writing: "Her mutchkin stowp as toom’s a whissle"... this meant "Her pint bucket is as empty as a whistle". ...we conjecture that Rabbie was familiar with this instrument, the implication being that if a whistle is not clear of obstruction inside, then it will not play properly.
