Ok, so, I have a confession to make.
It’s not a scary confession so it’s ok to be out on the internet with it: I have an addiction to cookie cutters.
I don’t actually bake very often, and when I do, generally it’s cakes. But! I have a crazy amount of cookie cutters, because I love making gingerbread* and love the option of lots of different shapes.
At present, it’s taking all my willpower not to buy these:
"Fred" make a lot of odd cookie cutters. I already own:
(I’ve yet to try these yet, but considering the ability of the others I only anticipate them being amazing.)
And I don’t need to buy new cookie cutters very often, so it’s not like some kind of addiction wherein I can’t pass them without buying - it’s always a case of wanting specifics. Why have street green when you can buy top class? That kind of thing. I have ordered back issues of the Disney Cake & Sweets because I missed cookie cutters that I feel I need. I sometimes spend hours just scanning online, hoping to find new, interesting cookie cutters. I believe I bought some from Ikea that were moose-related, that I’ve yet to use. I don’t even use them. But I want them. I need them in my life. I have this crazy idea that in the future, when I live alone, I’ll bake cookies and just eat them instead of buying any. (Probably less healthy. Plus, I only know how to make gingerbread, so that’ll get sickening pretty fast.) Maybe I should start researching healthy cookie options?
OH GOD, I JUST FOUND THE PORTAL COOKIE CUTTERS. I NEED THESE IN MY LIFE. WHHHY.
There’s a little turret, and companion cube! And there’s a falling person and- shh. I just like them. Oh, should I not look at this website in case there are others? …
Now the problem is, with 3d printers available now, people have taken it upon themselves to make millions of geeky cookie cutters. I feel like I can no longer search for these things for fear of the amount of money I want to spend on them. I mean, just look at this website! All of the things!
Anyway, that’s my confession for the night.
(*I feel I should point out 70% of my making gingerbread is lovely, but there’s a bout 30% of the time that I get fed up and loathe making it.)
