Favorite Cake Tools

 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 learned what pans to use and what tools would help to give me smooth sides. Today, I'm sharing all of my favorite tools that will help anyone make a tired cake!

The best pans that I've found are Fat Daddio. You can find them on Amazon and sometimes at Home Goods. I ordered mine from Orson Gygi

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.

Here's a look at some of the cakes I've made over the last year. I no longer make cakes for people, it was short lived, but I still enjoy making them for my family!

Trying stripes for the first time!

Charlee Jo had a One in a Melon party and her cakes were my FAVORITE to make!

I never would have guessed that I could make cakes, but the journey has been so much fun. It has been a way for me to be creative and try new things. I hope that once my kids get older it's something I can pick back up.
