Cake Equipment

Which cake equipment do you need to start decorating a cake?  If you're icing a cake for the first time we highly recommend a top smoother and side smoother to iron out all those icing bumps. Use a large 16 inch non stick rolling pin instead of an old wooden one, a cranked palette knife to trim your edges to give your cake that professional finish.

Once you've mastered the basic cake decorating equipment try experimenting with sugar flower cutters and impress your friends every time. You should find all the cake equipment you will ever need to decorate a cake or cupcakes.

Modelling Tools & Equipment

Modelling Tools & Equipment

Some say that a cake decorator is only as good as his tools. This is especially true for modelling equipment, which, to achieve the best designs, can take a lot of different utensils.

 Initially, we recommend the two must have trick of the trade items as a Top Smoother and a Side Smoother. These icing tools are essential for giving a professional finish to your cakes.

 We also stock a range of rolling pins, crimpers, palette knives and lots more, to help turn anyone into a master cake decorator.

Cake Pops & Moulds

Cake Pops

Cake Pops may be an unfamiliar term to many, but can be a delicious and interesting treat for the entire family!

Cake Pops are a form of cake styled as a lollipop. Cake crumbs are mixed with icing or chocolate, and formed into various moulds or shapes before being given a coating of icing, chocolate or other decorations and attached to lollipop sticks.

Easy to make and amazing to taste!

Letter & Number Cutters

Alpha Numerical Cutters

Piping messages with icing by hand can be a difficult task. Fortunately, for all those less confident with their icing skills, there are a range of alpha numerical cutters which give a clear, defined icing pattern for even the most novice of cooks.

These can be used to create great messages for a variety of different occasions, including birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.

Clikstix letter and number cutters have the benefit of an ejector to easily release the icing.  We usually use flower paste rolled out extremely thin then leave for about half an hour to crust over then use the cutters.  This will ensure an easy release.

For something a bit more fun spell out your name with the alphabet cookie cutters.

Cake Decorating Stencils
