Buying the right baking tools can make your baking experience a lot easier. But if you’re like most people, you’re probably not sure what tools to invest in. After all, the best tools for the job are often the most expensive ones.
Cake Decorating Tools
If you love making cakes, you’ll want to invest in some cake-decorating tools. Sure, you can do it with just a knife and a spatula, but keeping your cake perfectly smooth is easy when you use a decorating kit. Here are a few of our favorite tools for cake decorating.
Whipped Cream Chargers
Another great tool for cake decorating is a whipped cream charger. With this device, you can easily create voluminous whipped cream without having to use an ice cream maker. These devices use nitrous oxide to create a high-pressure whipped cream that is perfect for topping cakes and cupcakes.
Another way to ensure your cake looks perfect is to use cake rings and donuts. These two types of tools help prevent your cake from bowing as it cools by keeping it in place as it cools. You can place one in the center of your cake and use it as a guide when frosting your cake. Then, use the same tool to create a hole in the top of the cake for the donut to go through.
Once you do this, the donut will fit perfectly around your cake. You can also use these two tools to frost your cake and create a base for your buttercream or ganache. You could even use them as part of a fun centerpiece for your wedding cake.
You can use a KitchenAid mixer to mix ingredients for batter and dough, as well as whip up butter and fluff egg whites and cream cheese for pies and cakes. You can also use it to knead bread dough and mix pancake batter and up dressings and marinades for chicken and meat dishes. When you buy one of these kitchen appliances, you not only get one great tool but two useful ones, so you can save money on having to buy two separate items.
Piping Tips & Dipping Molds
Piping is another staple part of baking that you want to invest in. If you plan on doing much decorating with frosting and other toppings, then buying some piping tips and molds is definitely worth the investment.
You can also find piping tips that are tiny enough to fit inside sprinkles and other small decorations so that you can create fun designs for your desserts. You can use these when you’re making birthday cakes or other baked treats for kids, as well as decorating cookies and other pastries for holidays like Valentine’s Day or Halloween. You can even use them for decorating cupcakes for parties or other events or for pulling sugary strings out of candy corn for treats for kids during trick-or-treat time.
Non-Stick Silicone Mats
If you want your pastries to come out perfect every time, then investing in non-stick silicone mats is definitely worth the investment. Silicone mats are often used by home bakers when baking cookies because they help keep cookies from sticking while they bake and while they cool off after they’re done cooking.
- Non-stick silicone mats are scented with vanilla so that they smell great when they’re cooking and also have a nice vanilla aroma once they’re cool off after being cooked on the oven floor.
- These mats are also oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, making them perfect for baking cookies and cakes as well as pastries like cupcakes or muffins because they won’t melt during baking or when they cool off after cooking.
You can also lay these mats on top of cookies while they bake so they don’t burn or form craters in the middle because they aren’t meant to be placed directly in the oven with the cookies themselves. However, if you do want to cook with them directly in the oven with the cookies, try using parchment paper under them so that they don’t stick too much and ruin your cookies. Of course, if you do have problems with your cookies sticking while cooking, using parchment paper under them while they bake will help prevent this problem as well.
Molds can help you make ice cream cake as well. They come in different shapes and sizes, so you can choose the one that best suits your cake or dessert.
Cookie Cutters And Molds
Cookie cutters are fun, easy to use, and definitely worth the money. Cookie cutters can come in many different shapes and sizes so that you can use them for different types of desserts that need cutouts such as cupcakes or delicious-looking brownies or cookies.
There are many things that make a good baker besides just knowing how to cook tasty food: knowing which tools to invest in is definitely one way to go about it! If you’re new to baking, then buying yourself some basic baking tools should definitely be part of your shopping list; we hope this list gives you everything you need!
