Whether you’re looking to pursue a professional baking career, to cater small events or simply to bake better cakes, there is something to be said for professional baking supplies. What do you need to be as successful as possible? Here’s your list of must-have kitchen accessories:
Cake pans are your first step in getting the perfect baked good. You’ll need a variety once you get the hang of baking but beginning with a pair of the most common sizes will give you a solid start.
Choose an 8- or 9-inch round baking pan and a 9×13 inch rectangle pan to start out with and have everything you need to bake the very best. Consult your most commonly-used recipes to decide between glass, metal, stone or silicone.
If you’re working with fondant, you can’t be without at least one good rolling pin. They’ll help you get a lovely, even thickness and a smooth finish.
An icing turntable will help you in two ways. It will allow you to turn your cake during decorating to ensure even frosting and décor, and it will provide a beautiful display space to show off your handiwork.
A piping set may seem like quintessential professional baking supplies, but truly this accessory will help bakers of any level of expertise pull off beautiful frosting jobs. Everything from rose to fluffy clouds to cute faces and more can be achieved with a good piping set and a little bit of practice.
Put together a frosting kit for professional-looking results every time. You’ll need:
Several good-quality spatulas in varying sizes.
An offset palette knife to smooth out frostings and fondant.
Pastry wheel, for trimming excess fondant.
Ask your local baking supplier what else they recommend, and make sure you have everything you need for the perfect cakes, cookies and more. Those whom you bake for will feel the love and care in every delicious bite!
