Must Have Cake Supplies: Just starting out with cake making or just want to get an idea what are the essential items with cake making, here are my must have cake making supplies.
First things first you will need an apron so you don’t get your lovely clothes all messy. Getting a personalized one is a perfect idea!
I am definitely a baker, not a great cook, yes I can cook but not fabulous. I LOVE baking cakes, cupcakes, muffins, slices, brownies you name it I pretty much love making it.
I started Cake making when I was quite young maybe 10 or 11 (with my Moms help) and use to make lots of fruit cakes and add fondant icing and make the fondant flowers.
These days the cakes are just so divine looking and lots have Buttercream or frosting, they also have so many layers and different colors and different flavors, different shapes and oh my mouth is watering.
Lets look at the must have cake supplies I think you need to get started.
A Cake mixer/beater is definitely a must have as you will use it over and over again probably one of my best kitchen buys. I do have the stand mixer but you could get the hand mixer as it is still great. I just find it so much easier with the stand one as you have your hands free to get other ingredients ready.
I have an array of cake pans and silicone bake pans as I am a little bit OCD when it comes to my cakes. Depending what shape I want and what size and also what type of cake I am making- sponge cake, chocolate fudge cake, banana cake, pumpkin cake, Teir cakes, I have my favorite cake pans for each and every one of them.
Also there are Spingform Cake Pans which I feel are very good as so easy to get the cakes out.
Topsy Turvy Tier Round Cake Pans this is a great idea if you are doing a cake for a very special occasion like a wedding, baby shower or maybe Alice in Wonderland themed party
it a very important utensil as it makes icing your cake easy and it looks like a professional has done it. Tips for the best icing is to keep a large glass of warm water and paper towel handy so you can dip your icing spatula in so the icing spreads smoothly, you can clean your spatula as often as you feel you need to.

This is something I wished I had bought earlier than I did as I went years without it but now I don’t know how I survived buy using a cake turntable it is so helpful for frosting and decorating your cake.
These hacks are brilliant OH my who ever thinks of these things is a genius, my favorites are paper plate on beaters, marshmallow icing yummy must try that one I am sure the kids will love it.
This is perfect for cakes that you will be layering as it quickly and easily cuts through the cake to make it perfectly level well if you have a good eye. ;-0
These bags are perfect for icing the perfect cake or cupcake, the nozzles come in all shapes and sizes so you will have no trouble finding what you want with these. Also if you get the disposable piping bags then you don’t even have to cleanup the mess.
