12 Cake Baking Tools & Equipments

Perhaps you're new to cake creation, or maybe you just want to add to your inventory of cake tools—either way, we've got you covered!

So, without further ado, let's dig into the realm of cake-baking tools and equipment to make your cake-making process a tad smoother, a lot more professional, as well as a lot more enjoyable.

Cake Pan

There are dozens of cake pans to select from, so you could definitely flood your kitchen with them! They are essential for preparing any cake.

You do not even need the most expensive pans, and nonstick metals aren't very useful for cake baking. What matters is the size and shape of the pans. Three or four different sizes of circular and rectangular or square pans will be sufficient. And a two-inch high side is desirable.


Numerous cake recipes call for you to 'whip butter and sugar,' which takes a lot more strength than manual mixing.

Invest in a stand mixer. Many come with a variety of accessories to accommodate a wide range of recipes. The nice thing about a stand mixer is that you can add the ingredients, switch it on, and proceed to do other tasks while it continues to mix.

If you don't want to give up your counter space, hand mixers are an excellent alternative. Hand mixers are smaller than stand mixers, and they demand you to manually blend the cake batter.

They are still far more effective than a simple spoon for mixing, and your batter will turn out much better as a result. Yes, a mixer of any type is essential for cake baking.

Cake Decoration Tips

While a basic star tip, round tip, and writing tip can do, a collection of 50+ pieces won't break your bank and will provide you with unlimited decorating alternatives. Washable stainless steel pipe tips are preferable to plastic because they design more smoothly and stay longer.

Pastry Bags

Once you've decided on your pastry tips, you'll need pastry bags to pair with them! Buy 12 inch and 18-inch pastry bags; these two sizes should provide for decorating a full cake or simply writing a simple happy birthday in icing.

Washable or throwaway bags will suffice, however, take into account that even reusable bags may become old and often moldy after a few washing. Pastry bags are a recurring expense, but they are unquestionably necessary for cake decoration.

Spoons and Cups for Measuring

When churning up cake batter, precision is required!

When shopping for a measuring spoon set, make sure it has at least a 1/4 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, 1 teaspoon, and 1 tablespoon—you can create almost any dish with these four. The same is true for your measuring cup set; a 1/4 cup, a 1/3 cup, and a cup are required; anything extra is an advantage!

Pastry Brush

A pastry brush may be used for everything from putting butter on cake pans to drowning cakes in syrups. It is sometimes overlooked among the essential instruments for a baker, yet it is important.

You'll grow to cherish this basic tool with each cake you prepare.

Cooling Rack

You need to allow your cakes to relax in the pan for a few minutes after they come out of the oven.

Place your heated cakes on a cooling rack to prevent them from sticking in the pan or continuing to bake due to carry-over heat.

A cooling rack is an ideal place to place a cake between the oven and the refrigerator. Because cakes are often bigger in size, you should purchase at least two cooling racks (or one extremely huge one!)

Table for Turning Cakes

When you reach the decorative stage of cake creation, you will undoubtedly want a turn table. It's a tremendous help to have your cake lifted while you're decorating.

When you start icing the cake, the option to rotate it whilst employing the frosting ensures that the icing is smooth and uniform. When you create borders on cakes, you'll want them to be able to rotate!

As an ordinary plastic cake platter would suffice, if you are passionate about cake decorating, you should invest in a turntable with a robust cast iron base - this turntable would never wobble while you design.

Convection Oven

Convection ovens circulate hot air all across the oven as the cake bakes, allowing it to bake more quickly and uniformly.

Regardless of the cautions, a convection oven is well worth the investment.


Assessing by scale is more precise than estimating by quantity, and therefore all expert recipes are prepared with the masses in mind.

A good kitchen scale is essential for every cake maker!

Parchment Paper

Parchment is a multi-purpose, nonstick tool that each and every baker should have on hand. It is ideal for the bottoms of cakes and cookies. However, a large pack of parchment sheets of a readymade roll-using parchment will substantially improve your cake-baking abilities.

Cake Stand

You'll want to show off your lovely cake once you've utilized all of your fantastic cake-making instruments.

Pick a good basic cake stand that will complement a variety of cake styles. Cakes, after all, may be the ideal centerpiece for any occasion.

If you have each of these pieces of equipment crossed off your wish list and in your pantry, you're ready to create some great cakes! So get your cake tools and go to work- creating cakes has never been quicker or more enjoyable!
