Essential Kitchen Tool #1: Fat Daddio Cake Pans

I will always stand by my Fat Daddio round cake pans. After using them I will never try another brand. The way they are produced makes it so your cake batter gets a nice even bake while in the oven. This is such a big deal! Distributing that heat as equally as possible will give you the professional results you are looking for when baking cakes. 

Essential Kitchen Tool #2: Icing Spatulas

Yes, you could use a rubber spatula or something similar to spread the frosting on your cakes and desserts, but an icing spatula will change your world! I actually custom-made two different icing spatulas that are the perfect length and angle for you when frosting your layered cakes. Check them out HERE. These spatulas will make it easier on you and allow you to get all the icing on the cake with less of a mess in the process.

KitchenAid Mixers are of course a game changer when it comes to baking. I know these are a more pricey kitchen tool for baking, BUT with Black Friday coming up it could be the perfect time for you to finally get one. You can check out my top picks for KitchenAid Mixers HERE. Plus, the one tool I cannot live without is the fitted paddle attachment that scraps the edge of your bowl while it’s mixing your batter. It’s so amazing!
