Wilton Tent Sale


starts tomorrow!!! After taking a year off (which, frankly, was a good thing for my pocketbook since we never manage to emerge from there spending under $50), the big white tents are pitched again.

If you need any cake decorating supplies (including this really cool spray-on food coloring that is great for backgrounds on cakes when you're doing something like water or grass), it's the place to go. I don't think I ever see any real sales on Wilton in the stores, so the discounts at their tent sale are unbeatable. Of course, it helps if you live in the Chicago metropolitan area. Wilton is located in Woodridge on 75th at I-355.

We'll have our tribe traipsing through there in the next couple of days. I'm not sure that we actually need anything, but it's such an incredible kitchen smorgasbord that it's hard to stay away. A Musing Dad is just as big a fan of the tent sale as I am (maybe even more).

Now that I think about it, I just might pick up one of those cool cupcake trees. Or maybe a portable container for cupcakes. And then if I get one, I'll have to whip up a batch of Magnolia's goodies...

Note on Tent Sale dates & hours: Runs May 29 to June 16. Hours are 4:30pm-8pm on the 29th, then Saturdays and Sundays 8am - 6pm and Mondays through Fridays 9am - 8pm.

I also hear that they have an "expanded crafts section" that includes crafts and hobby products along with scrapbooking supplies.

Okay, buy MELTING CHOCOLATE. Oh my. Someone in my MOPS group made this amazing candy popcorn and it is so easy.

Pop 2 bags of microwave popcorn. Discard kernals.

Melt 1/2 bag melting candy (any color). Pour popcorn in a paper bag. Shake with melted candy. Let "dry" on wax paper.

I just made some. It took about five minutes. And it's AMAZING. You can do all different colors mixed together...or orange for halloween, red, white and blue for fourth of july...

I'm totally addicted to this stuff! (Maybe I should go to the tent sale!)

(Okay, melting CANDY, not chocolate. It just tastes like chocolate.)
