Whether you're just starting a small baking business or need to expand your decorating tools for home or business use, a cake decoration kit is an easy way to get a range of decorating tools at a bargain price. You can buy cake decoration kits at most cookware or craft stores, or you can buy online from a number of specialty baking sites.
When searching for cake decorations, supplies for baking may be available either in beginner or starter kits or professional cake decorating kits. If you're buying your first cake decoration kit, look for additional instructional books for ideas, tips and other support as you begin to use your cake decor supplies.
When shopping for cake kits, consider the following options:
1. Look for beginner cake decorating kits for a basic set of tools;
2. Explore deluxe and specialty kits for more involved projects;
3. Shop for professional tools and bake ware to augment your decorating supplies.
Get a range of basic tools with beginner cake kitsCake decorating kits typically come in a variety of sizes, with smaller piece sets for beginner kits and larger piece sets for more advanced cake decorating. A good basic set will include icing pouches and tips, food colors, stencils and other tools such as pans or spatulas.
Get specialty or deluxe cake decorating kits for special occasionsKits for cake decorating also come with a number of decorating purposes in mind. You can buy a deluxe cake decoration kit with all the tools to complete your first custom project, or special-occasion kits such as themed birthday cake decorating kits that give you everything you need for a single cake decoration theme.
Get professional cake decorating kits and supplies beyond the basicsIf you already have the basic cake decorations, supplies to bring your baking tools to the professional level are easy to find online from specialty cooking and baking retailers. Professional baking supplies include a wider range of specialty icing tips, more precise tools such as color syringes and tools for working with fondant icing, which is popular in professional baking.
- If you're looking for professional cake decorating kits and having trouble finding an all-inclusive kit, consider buying a large beginner set and supplementing with a smaller kit of professional tools. Because professional tools are designed for experienced bakers, inclusive professional sets are hard to find, but easy to assemble yourself with several small kits.
