Hubby and I are just back from a few weeks in the US. We visited family and friends, and stocked up on things that are so much more expensive when purchased here in Australia. Here are a few things I was able to tick off my wish list.
Toll House Butterscotch Morsels, Heath Toffee Bits, Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips and Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips – these were all about USD$2.99 each. I’d pay over AUD$7 for a packet of Butterscotch Morsels here in Australia, when they are available. Cookies are planned!
I picked up this Williams-Sonoma Message in a Cookie set in San Francisco for USD$19.95. I noticed Williams-Sonoma now ship to Australia from their website, but you will pay AUD$34 for the same set (before shipping). I’ve tested out this set once already this week, so far so good, and have a plan for it this weekend.
I like to use disposable piping bags as I feel I can never get the cloth bags clean enough after use. 100 Wilton piping bags cost me $USD20 at Michaels in Virginia. And if I’d bothered to look for a coupon I would have paid less. Here, I buy a packet of 12 Wilton bags for AUD$14.95. A pack of 100 would cost AUD$70. Yikes! I also picked up a few more decorating tips too, to build up my collection. I see more cake decorating and cookie making in my future!
