Nordic Ware Cake Lifter

Now here is a genius little idea!  Have you ever spent hours decorating a cake, and then wondered how you were going to lift it onto your cake stand?! Or how about cutting your cake into think layers, and worrying about them falling to pieces once you try to move them?  Well then this is the gadget for you!

This cake lifter is 10″ in diameter, and it’s non-stick coating makes it easy to clean.

So what do reviewers say? The vast majority gave this product 5 stars!

The Good

The most frequent positive aspect of this cake lifter that is mentioned is how sturdy it is.  But at the same time, thin enough to easily slip it underneath the cake to lift it.

The non-stick coating also seems to work very well, and many people said that it is easy to clean in hot, soapy water.

The Not So Good

One slight negative was that it can be a little hard to store because of it’s size.  A folding handle could have been a better solution perhaps? Or maybe this would compromise the sturdy nature of the cake lifter?

Tips On Using the Nordic Ware Cake Lifter

Spray the cake lifter with a little bit of cooking spray before using to ensure that the cake slides off easily.

Great for lifting pizzas too! And flipping pancakes.  And turning and serving quesadillas. And lifting cookie dough onto a baking sheet.

Wilton Disposable Icing Bags

Wilton 2104-1358 Disposable 12-inch Decorating Bags, 24/ Pack


Review of Wilton Disposable Icing Bags

Wilton disposable icing bags are a really handy addition to the toolbox of any cake decorator.  They are available as both 12″ or 16″, and are made from strong, durable plastic which is also suitable for melting products in the microwave.  These icing bags fit standard icing tips and couplers.

Save yourself the time and mess of cleaning icing bags, and save time when using various colors.

So what do real customers think of these Wilton bags?

The Good

Customers were impressed with the durability of these icing bags.  They refilled them multiple times without having problems with leaking of bursting seams.

The convenience and lack of cleaning up are by far the biggest reasons for purchasing these cake decorating bags.

Most customers were pleased with this product price, and felt that it worked out as a cost effective alternative.

 The Not So Good

The biggest negative is the issue of waste.  Not everyone is happy with the “throw-away” culture that has become popular.

The other issue with the bags being so strong and durable is that they are not as “soft” or easy to handle as other bags.

Some people found the 12″ icing bags too small.

 Tips From Customers

You don’t even need to worry about nozzles, just snip a piece from the end of the bag and start icing!

Handy to use for other purposes too – tie up bags of marshmallows, cookes, candy etc – but be aware that the Wilton logo is on the bag!

Conclusion

A very handy and time saving product. These icing bags from Wilton are sturdy and a reasonable price. Very useful to have in your toolkit!

Reviews of Wilton Set of 10 Gum-Paste Modeling Tools

To be honest, most people over on this side of the Atlantic seem to favour using PME modelling tools.  They are by far the most common that I see around .  However, I have looked at this set in the Wilton catalogue a good few times, and the price seems reasonable in comparison.  And the case would be a very handy addition to this set.  So I was wondering how good these Wilton tools actually are.

There are 10 tools in this set which are numbered and colour coded to make them easy to find and organize.  The handles are designed to be easy to grip, and are ergonomically designed.  Seven of the tools are double-ended, so in reality you are getting 17 tools! The tools included are:

Shell tool and knife; large & small bone tool; quilting & cutting tool; scriber & cone tool; large & small veining tool; large & small ball tool; umbrella tool; palette knife and 2 modelling sticks.

Sounds good?! Well what do real customers who have tried this kit really think?

The Good

Customers seems to appreciate the variety of tools included in this kit, and say that it contains all that you need to get started with your cake decorating. The case and the fact that the tools are numbered makes it very east to store, transport and organize your tools.

Many of the customers were very happy with what they got for their money.

The Not So Good

A few people commented on the fact that some of the tools seemed a little bit too small to be effective.  One person also felt that the quilting tool was cutting strips instead of actually just embossing a pattern.

Some more professional cake decorators felt that the construction was a little bit cheap, and that there were small bumps and marks in them from the manufacturing.

Conclusion

From what I have read, beginners and home bakers seem to be very happy with this set of tools from Wilton.  However, if you are a more professional/commercial cake decorator, you might be better off investing in sturdier tools.
