A year ago last month, I made my first tiered cake. Colson requested a three tiered cookies and cream cake. I did my best but it was a sight...
Over the next couple of months I continued to make cakes to practice. I continually got better the more I practiced and it was a hobby that I really started to enjoy. I watched hours of YouTube videos and Instagram videos.
I've purchased several scrapers but my favorite continues to be the Ateco one. It is light and easy to use.
I love using parchment rounds in my pans. I use the cooking spray from Costco but the parchment rounds help the cake to come out easily.
I also use the squeeze bottle to apply any drips on my cakes.
One item that has made the biggest difference in my cakes is the Ateco revolving cake stand.
