Whether you are opening a gourmet cupcake shop, adding desserts to your restaurants menu, or just cooking at home for the family, make sure you have the necessary supplies to make your creations successful. If you take a look in your cupboards, you’ll probably find that you already have many of these products. Make sure they are in good condition (no cracks or rust) and put them in a baking caddy so that they’ll be organized and on hand when you need them. Also pick up a food storage container with lid to store all of your supplies.
Bake Ware…. These are the essential pans that you can’t live without. Depending on what your baking, you’ll need baking sheets and pans, spring form and cake pans, cake sheets, and muffin pans. Each one serves a different purpose so make sure you’re using the right pan for your recipe. For example, if you are making an apple strudel that creates a lot of juice, making it with a cookie sheet will leave your oven with an undesirable mess. On the other hand, a rimmed baking sheet will not allow juices to drip off the pan.
Cooling Rack….Perfectly baked and piping hot, if you leave cookies or cake in their pan too long they’ll stick. Instead, use a wire cooling rack to speed up the cooling process. It’s inexpensive and comes in a variety of sizes.
Mixing Bowls…. Where else would you mix up perfect cake batter? Make sure that your mixing bowl is at least 1.5 times larger than your batter to allow ample room to mix the batter.
Utensils…. Whisks, spatulas, wooden spoons, pastry brushes and cutters, and pie/cake servers are just a few of the utensils that you’ll need in your baking caddy.
Cake Stand…. Whether you created scrumptious cookies, delicious pie, or a layered cake, proudly display your creation in a covered cake stand to give it a grand presentation.
