5 Tools Everyone In The Cake Business Should Have

There are plenty of things that you should have if you're going to do cakes as a business. None of them are mandatory, honestly, but some make your life a lot easier. Here are my top 5 choices for tools that you want to have:

1. An Agbay cake leveler. Not a Wilton leveler or any other brand...But if you can't afford that right now, get one of these. The Agbay is better because it's totally adjustable, But the stainless rings will do in a pinch.

2. A good stand mixer with at least a 5qt bowl. A 6 quart bowl is better because you can do a triple batch of IMBC in a 6-qt bowl with no problems.

3. A good bench scraper. There are many types that you can buy, but I'll give a shout-out to Kristin at Fat Girl Cakes on this. She makes large bench scrapers that can smooth a double-barrel cake with no lap marks in the middle.

4. This set of clay tools. They're really all you'll need, I use mine CONSTANTLY.











5. Decent silicone spatulas. Because if you've used a bad spatula, you know what I'm talking about. I like the Orka ones because they're one-piece with no floppy handles, easy to clean, and heat-resistant.
