15 Best Accessories You May Need For Baking That Perfect Cake
How many times have you entered the kitchen and cried over trying to bake a perfect cake? As for me, I don’t cry but panic because out of most of my baking sessions, more than half were a waste. But there are many of you out there who are masters in this process of making those yum delights we head to the bakery for. Be it an apple tart or some exotic themed birthday cake, baking is an art not many can master too easily. Uhm, let’s scratch the last bit of the previous sentence. Because I believe when you have a kitchen stocked with these 15 amazing baking accessories, you’ve got to be a superhero in this field. Even amateurs like me think I can run a bakery after seeing them!
Okay, so let’s not waste time and head directly to the baking goods you must order for your kitchen now! I mean it!
The first thing you must order is Drop Smart Scale because this isn’t just another weighing scale. It comes with an amazing iPad app which hosts a number of tried and tested recipes. You’ll also get to use features such as Recipe Rescaling and Ingredient Substitutions to prepare your treats with whatever ingredients you already have at home. It’s like having a baking trainer right beside you while you try out your hand on preparing something delicious.
You also need a stylus as much as you need an iPad. But one which will not only help in navigating through your recipes but also works as a mixing spoon as and when required. Sounds like a perfect multi-tool for your baking times, isn’t it?
Without an oven mitt, your baking sessions will be a burnt experience. But I like things which are unique and this rock-themed oven mitt just falls perfect in that category. Oops, but it shouldn’t distract you from your concentration in baking and drive you towards the last rock concert you visited!
Once you make your dream treat, the next thing you should make sure is that every one gets an equal piece. This cake divider will come handy for that purpose. Just one simple click and you’ll be set to divide your cake into 6, 8,10 or 14 pieces.
Once you divide your cakes, don’t mess up in the process of serving them by using this beautiful cake server. Just place it down a cake in order to cut that perfect piece and then gently squeeze the handle to hold the sliced piece together. That’s pretty much it.
A cake topper is like the best thing to highlight on your cake. And when it’s a special occasion like a wedding or anniversary, you’ve got to use this cake topper.
A cake without decoration is a no no. I prefer creativity to spark from those treats you take time to prepare. So this decorating pen is a must have for all you wonderful bakers out there.
Now for a professional looking cake, you can choose this electronic cutter instead. Just choose a shape, a size, and press CUT. The stainless-steel blade cuts materials up to 12 by 12 inches and 12 by 24 inches in size; with 6 modes, 4 functions, and shape size variation for further customization.
Another super awesome decorating tool you could use. The set includes a transparent baking sheet, decomat and 4 laminated design stencils (classic designs, contemporary style, italic alphabet, Happy Birthday). At first you need to choose the stencil design you want and then place a baking sheet on top of it. Then fill your decomat with the desired chocolate filling and draw them on the corresponding design you choose.
Making brownies during festive seasons is so cool. But the process of serving them post baking is a terror. Not if you use this brownie pan. It’s molded out of heavy-gauge cast aluminum in order to keep up with the durability factor and has an easy-clean premium nonstick coating to make the removal of brownies post baking super easy.
Last but not the least, I think you need a kitchen safe to keep a check on your calories. Because after all that baking, you’re only going to gobble up everything at a faster rate. Nom Nom!
This makes it tough for me to control my dessert cravings. So while I head to the nearest bakery for some cupcakes, why don’t you get on with your shopping? Don’t forget to share your favorites with us in the comments below. Happy Gadgeting!
