Getting Started: Everything You Need to Start Baking Great Cakes

Wondering what it takes to bake delicious, beautiful cakes for birthdays, weddings, parties, and more? Here’s a list of the basics you’ll need – and a tip on where to buy!

The Tasty Stuff

It’s obvious that you’ll need things like flour, sugar, eggs and more to bake incredible cakes. What might not be so obvious is that you’ll need ingredients of the highest quality to craft award-winning desserts. Shop with a natural foods retailer or a professional baking supplier to get the best ingredients and enjoy delicious, successful cakes every time.

The Hardware

The non-edible cake decorating supplies you’ll need for successful treats include:

* Cake pans appropriately for what you’ll be baking. (Lighter-colored metal pans are best for more delicate desserts, glass and darker metal pans are better for bread, heartier cakes, and other desserts.)
* Parchment paper and pan lubricants.
* Spatulas, offset palette knives and other frosting supplies.
* Rolling pins.
* Turntable for frosting.
* Fondant smoothers, knives and pastry wheels for shaping fondant.
* Piping tools.
* Cake boards and boxes for presentation and storage.
* Brushes for painting food colorings, edible glitter and more onto the surface of smoothed fondant.

Noe that you know what baking supplies you’ll need, let’s talk about where to buy it.

Shop Professional for Professional Results

While it might be tempting to run to your nearest hobby store or a big-box retailer with rock-bottom prices, if you want great quality cake decorating supplies you’ll need to buy them from a professional retailer. Look in your local listings or online for a professional baking supply company and invest in top-quality items to last you for many years to come. This way, you won’t be replacing your supplies every few months – and your results will always be top-notch!
