My husband likes to get his business clothes from Jos. A. Bank. (As I typed it, I said it in my head in the TV voice with the swagger: "JO-seph Aaaa Bank!"). This is a store where you would be out of your gourd to pay full price for a Traveler's Pinpoint dress shirt. They are $87.50 each. Geez, people. We all know they are not worth it. Otherwise, you would not offer them "buy one get two free," a deal we recently took advantage of.
So where am I going with all this? Well, Kohl's often does this Kohl's Cash promotion where you earn $10 in Kohl's Cash for spending a certain amount of money. I recently bought a large bag full of clothes for my two boys. I also picked up some flip-flops for me, as well as some other small things I needed. I earned $40 in Kohl's Cash! Wowee zowee.
So after Mosaic and Fried Chicken Day, my friend and I went to Kohl's to spend this "cash." Not on something useful, oh no. Not on something practical, no way, man. We knew just what we needed.
A mini donut maker.
So I picked up the Babycakes mini donut maker and one box of cinnamon sugar donut mix. It came to $38 and some odd cents. Perfect!
This is not my first foray into the world of Babycakes. First you must understand I'm not a huge consumer of cake in any form, even the adorable and oft celebrated cupcake form. I swear you cannot go into any store nowadays without seeing cupcake merchandise. Books about cupcakes, wire holders for cupcakes, fancy cupcake papers, cupcake gel clings, cupcake clothing, cupcake dishes, etc. But I purchased the Babycakes waffle stick maker, thinking I would make delicious and handy waffle sticks for my boys every other morning. Well, my first few attempts at waffle sticks were not all that successful. I had waffles sticking in there, or waffles that tasted like the actual waffle maker. Yuck. Then I bought Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix and all my waffle stick dreams came true. And have I mentioned how I only buy REAL MAPLE SYRUP?? Oh, waffle sticks and real maple syrup. I love thee.
So I owned the Babycakes mini donut maker for a week, and promised my boys I would make donuts on Saturday. And so that is what I did. And we all died and went to heaven, end of story, Amen.
No, really, we're still alive. We just THOUGHT we had died and gone to heaven because not only were the donuts Beautiful, they were magnificent, like no other baked donut, dipped in melted butter, rolled in cinnamon sugar has ever been or will ever be.
So the moral of this story is, when you have Kohl's Cash, you should buy a Babycakes product, because it's sort of free, and it will make you and your kids happy and all your dreams will come true. I swear.
