My Cake Room Tools and Equipment I use
The cake world has a huge variety of tools and equipment to use from a few must haves; to a few good to have; and a few that we’d love to have; if we can afford it. Below I’ve listed a few of the ones I know you will want to have. Ones that will definitely not be wasting your money on.
The internet has lots to offer; more than one tool for the same job. I know tools make life a lot easier but picking the right tool for the right job is key. When I just started off I kept buying everything people recommended! Cake toys that I did not need!
True – there are some that I have still not opened out of their original packaging cause I have had no use for them. I got them just because some cake person I admire has them.
Tools Vs Skills.
I know that the internet has lots to offer. More than one tool for the same job. I know tools make life a lot easier but the truth still remains that your talent is what is key. So if you got a tool that a cake artist you admire is using and you still don’t get the same results – don’t go buying another tool. Collecting more tools is not the answer there; right?
What you need to do is practice! Yes, practice more and work on your skills. Perhaps use that money to buy a class that shows you how to achieve that results. For example, if you want to learn modelling don’t go on a shopping spree for modeling tools. Instead take a class and learn that skill; and often you will see that if you spend time practicing which tool you use won’t matter much.
