Every professional has their favorite tools of their trade. My three favorite decorating tools are:
The Professional Turntable is the right height for decorating the sides of a cake. The extra strength makes it easy to hold a 16” cake and still spin effortlessly. I can slowly move the turntable toward myself when icing a cake allowing me to smooth ice a cake easily so that it looks picture perfect.
Cake Icer Tip #789
Using a Cake Icer Tip #789 fitted into a 16” featherweight bag allows me to add large strips of icing on the cake without touching the cake which is why a beginner usually gets crumbs in their cake icing. They usually apply the icing too thinly. The cake icer tip allows approximately the right thickness of icing. Be sure the icing is thin consistency, just don’t apply too thinly. Thin the icing with milk, water or corn syrup, so it glides across the surface of the cake.
Large Angled Spatula
Using the Large Angled Spatula allows you to smooth the entire surface of a 4” high cake without leaving spatula marks.
