When you begin cake decorating, you can get by with a heavy duty mixer, icing tips, icing bags, cake pans, ready made or recipes for homemade royal icing, mixing bowls, spatulas, and metal icing spatulas. Later on you will want to spread your wings and expand your cake decorating and baking inventory. Below are some of the items you may want to purchase.
Rolled Fondant Icing
Rolled Fondant cake icing is a premium quality, non-stick, icing that is mouldable and can be rolled out for cake decorating with a rolling pin or mechanical sheeter. This fondant produces a satiny smooth and elegant finish to any cake. It can also be used as a modelling paste to create decorative flat or 3-D pieces for your cake. Use rolled fondant icing over a thin layer of icing or a layer of powdered sugar so that it does not stick. It has a mellow flavour and cmes in a range of flavours, colours and weights.
Decorative Cake Pans
A hexagon cake pan comes in a range of sizes and styles, such as the hemmed rim or manufactured out of anodized aluminium. Depending on your needs, you may also want a petal-shaped cake baking pan, heart-shaped cake pan, square cheesecake springform pan, or any other decorative cake pan styles.
Round, Fluted Cake Pans
Special cake pans are great for specific occasions, but the trusty old round-shaped cake pans are versatile enough for every day use. Consider investing in some as they are a crucial baker’s tool.
