Today, I made the decision to part with old bakery decorating candies and colorings and some old paper liners I'm least likely to use. Actually, I decided to only keep the cupcake liners that will fit in a wide mouth mason jar. The ones below just couldn't be squeezed in.
Looking through that round yellow box where most of this had been stored, I quickly realized I hadn't a clue how old anything was in there, and considering that I don't even recall the last time I decorated cookies or cupcakes, I made the happy decision to pitch it all. Next time (if there is a next time) I get a hankering to make decorated cupcakes or cookies, I will buy fresh decorating items, and only what I need - instead of buying this kind of thing when I see it on sale - often after a holiday. I am convinced I have spent far more money purchasing (all kinds of stuff) this way than if I'd just purchased what I needed, when I needed it.
Oh, and the box was stained by some leaking food coloring, so I'm recycling it as well. I've never even particularly liked the box so that's a win, too!
