When the stars align, you just have to run with it. It’s a fact that the human condition means we focus on the negatives in life. We complain when stuff goes wrong, but we often don’t appreciate when everything falls into place. So when things do fall into place people, recognise it. And be thankful.
Take this scenario: my mum’s been staying with us to help out while I get used to having baby Samuel around. She wanted to bake a pandan cake, but I don’t have a ring pan. OH NO. Well, I could go buy one and life would continue to plod along but alas, Kitchenware Superstore contacted me and asked if I’d like to review some products from their site. RING PAN!
You probably expected something more deep and meaningful about appreciating stuff, but guys, it’s me. And so, everything fell into place and yesterday, we had us a gorgeously fluffy pandan cake for 3pm snack 🙂
Life is good.
I was hugely impressed with the selection of products on Kitchenware Superstore. There was a lot (really, a lot) of stuff I wanted to buy but I focused on what I needed to get. I’ve been wanting to make my own pandan cake for an eternity and my lazy butt just never bought a ring pan. And you know, there’s also no harm in serving cake on a gorgeous Donna Hay cake stand, right?
The ring pan was fantastic. It’s a damn sight better than those regular ring pans that you can get in Chinatown. The non-stick surface and spring form base makes it super easy to get the cake out. And the cake stand is a simple, classic way to serve up cake. For all of 5 minutes until it’s devoured.
And guess what? Both are on sale right now so if you
need want a ring pan or cake stand (or any other product on Kitchenware Superstore), get moving! They offer free shipping for orders over $150, and also sell a great range of pink products in support of breast cancer research. In fact, $5 from every pink CuisinArt ice cream maker sold before 31 October goes towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation (if only I didn’t already have one…!) – perfect time to get ready for summer 😉
