New Product Line:
Get Sassie – Sassie Sap and the Sassie Stick! Chrissie sent me a set to check out and I love them! The Sassie Sap sets up and provides a long work time where you can dab the back of your gumpaste decorations, and the position and re-position them on your fondant covered creations!
The exciting news, is that the people of Sassie also have a line of Isomalt sticks available which they have asked Chrissie to launch this weekend! In addition to their already advertised 8 colours plus clear, they will have 32 new colors available:
10 Jewel Tones: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Pool Blue, Blue, Purple, SassiePink, Brown and Clear
10 Cloud Colours (these are really cool because they've got a creamy look to them): Red cloud, orange cloud, yellow cloud, leaf green cloud, Christmas green cloud, winter blue cloud, blue cloud, lavender cloud, sweet pink cloud, black cloud, white cloud
10 Glitter Colours (YES! They have glitter running through them!!): Sassie pink glitter, blue glitter, purple glitter, Christmas green glitter, shimmer glitter, gold glitter, yellow glitter, red glitter, black glitter, silver glitter.
They are a bit longer than other sticks available, and come well packed so they won't break in shipping. Chrissie actually told me this morning that one of the cases they received looked like a monster truck ran over it, and every single stick inside was still intact! Packs will be priced between $10 and $18 depending on selection. What is also cool, is they will be coming in variety packs like the Christmas combo pack or the Glitter combo pack. Icing Inspirations will be one of the first distributors to receive their new stock when it becomes available! Now here is where your EXCLUSIVE OFFER comes in! As a faithful reader of my blog, if you email Icing Inspirations and mention you read it on my blog, Icing Inspirations will put you on the list to get your very own Sassie Shot at a Morsels By Mark special price of $49.99 (plus taxes and shipping)! That is an incredible deal! The guns will be shipped on a first ordered first served basis though, so don't delay. This is a limited time offer and will end Tuesday, October 4th 2012 at 12:01 am!
