Here are some of my favorite tools:

  • Mini measuring cups/beakers - I love these! No more spilled/wasted vanilla extract.
  • Instant-read thermometer - I use this to check on the temperature of my dough/ingredients and even to confirm things are done baking.
  • Maybe you already have these, but if not, I use my kitchen scale and oven thermometer all the time.
  • Bakeware rack - This keeps my baking sheets and smaller pans better organized and more easily accessible than just stacking them on top of each other.
  • Marble slab - keeps pie/pastry dough cold as you roll it out (I keep mine in the fridge so it's always ready).
  • Pastry strips for making sure pie (or rolled-out cookie) dough is rolled out to an even thickness. Pastry cloth/sleeve for keeping dough from sticking.
  • Cookie scoops - for drop cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and really anything that needs to be portioned out evenly (including non-baking stuff like meatballs). Whenever I use these, I'm always really grateful for them. Mine are Zeroll dishers I got from King Arthur Flour, but Webstaurant Store has them for cheaper, and Oxo has a line of cookie scoops too.
  • If you make layer cakes, you may already have a turntable, but if not, this one is really good. I also like this cake lifter.
  • Of course, there's also stand mixers. Super-helpful for things like whipping egg whites for meringues/souffles/angel food cake, creaming butter and sugar, and kneading bread dough. If you ask for a stand mixer, the KitchenAid Pro has a stronger motor than the Artisan. I have the Artisan, and it's worked fine for me for several years, but if I could go back, I'd go with the Pro instead. An extra bowl is very handy as well.

A good spinning cake stand. It’s pricy but a hefty one will give you more stability when decorating cakes than a plastic one. I have this one .

Couple of questions: How much baking experience do you have? Are you planning on starting with using frosting and then using Fondant or just making cakes with frosting?

Like you I hate overly sweet frosting. I hardly ever make the typical American Buttercream frosting (shortening, milk, & powdered sugar-Blech!) However, that frosting does tend to be a little bit easier to work with. If you have some experience with cooked sugar, an Italian or French buttercream frosting isn't as intense for sweetness. They are made with real butter so they are harder to work with because the frosting gets softer the warmer it is outside or the longer you are holding the piping bag in your hands.

If you plan to use Fondant, I will use a chocolate ganache for the filling and crumb coat because it's not as sweet depending on the type of chocolate you use.

As far as supplies, it again depends on where you want to start. But there are some items that you will use regardless of if you choose Frosting vs. Fondant. These are a couple of my favorite items.

  • My favorite investment has been my rotating cake stand. I use the heavier one from Ateco that I bought on Amazon.
  • I always use an Offset Spatula. It's perfect for spreading the frosting on top of your cakes.

    As far as time, it all depends on what you are making and how fancy you want it. I have spent several hours decorating a cake with fondant but that's because they had a lot of tiny details. Cakes with simple rosettes on them are a lot faster. If you don't a lot of time in a day to put several hours into baking and then decorating, you can always bake the cake days before and put it in the freezer until you are ready to decorate. I'm happy to go into more details if you want more. I just don't know how much information you really want.

I highly recommend using the Ateco Stand

I've used a cheap turn table before. The Ateco spins better and the thin aluminum plate makes it easy to grab and turn the cake as you go.
