Cake Decorating Equipment
Basic/Essential Equipment

Here are a list of items that you will use throughout the course, some of which are just everyday household items and some are specialist cake making items.  You do not need all these at the beginning of the course and can obtain them as required.  At the end of each lesson you will be told what you need for the following week.  Sometimes I will bring in consumables which you can purchase from me rather than buying a large pack of your own.  For example for lesson one you will need 8 wires, these usually come in packs of 30-50 so I will bring them into class and we will spit the cost between the class, so it could cost you 50p instead of £3.  Of course if you prefer you can buy your own.

General Items To Bring Each Week, you will probably have most of these already.

Small sharp vegetable knife
Desert/table spoon
Cocktail sticks
Wooden skewers
12” ruler (flat backed) metal if possible but a stiff plastic one will be ok
Plastic set square (like you use at school)
Small artists brush
Pizza cutter
Cling film
Plastic bags (sandwich/freezer)
