Great for keeping cloth or disposable piping bags tidy and closed in the back. Especially handy on cake deliveries, in teaching environments, and when decorating with kids as these ties help keep frostings and fillings inside the pastry bag.

Small 9” Offset Spatula
This small offset spatula is one of the most-used tools in baking and cake decorating. Bakers can never have enough of these.

Cake Decorating with Modeling Chocolate book by Kristen Coniaris

My book!
Cake Decorating with Modeling Chocolate
THE reference book for cake decorators who already know how to use fondant and are ready to start experimenting with modeling chocolate

On Food and Cooking

On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen
This is basically an encyclopedia on the science of ingredients and how they interact with one another. For anyone who is curious about the chemistry of cooking and baking, this is the best possible reference to own. Makes a great gift for nerdy foodies.

How to Slice Cake Layers by Wicked Goodies
Serrated Cake Knife
For slicing cake layers, I recommend a long serrated knife with a wide but thin blade.


Pastry Bag Support Stand
Acts like a second set of hands while filling any kind of piping bag. Comes apart for easy cleaning and is dishwasher safe. I love mine!

Silicone Hemesphere Molds

Silicone Hemesphere Molds
One of each of these molds would be a great long term investment for creative dessert makers. They can be used for baking desserts in the oven or for chocolate molding or for setting delicate decorations made of fondant, modeling chocolate, gumpaste, or sugarpaste. If someone you love makes a lot of edible flowers for cake decoration, this would make an especially excellent gift.

Silicone Rolling Pin

Silicone Rolling Pin
I like the silicone Wilton rolling pin because it
comes apart for easy cleaning.

Wood Turntable

 Wood Turntable
This 15″ wood turntable works well for cake torting and decorating. The best thing about it is that it hardly takes up any space.

Cake 101 & Cake 102 DVDs by Pink Cake Box

This is a great starter kit for cake enthusiasts! Anne Heap is the owner of the bakery, Pink Cake Box in Denville, New Jersey, U.S.A. She runs a busy bakery using this foolproof system for building and frosting her cakes. You can tell when you’re watching these videos that Anne is a real pro. If you’ve always wondered how she gets her cakes to look so clean and polished, here’s how.

Parchment Paper

Parchment Paper
Full sheets of parchment paper work so much better than the stuff that comes on a roll. I recommend Quilon coated parchment paper. Full sheets can be cut down to whatever size is needed. 

Best Cake Pans to Buy

Cake Pan Sets
I recommend Fat Daddio’s anodized aluminum cake pans. 2″ or 3″ size are the best for home ovens. Here are two great nesting sets:
