Amazing Cake Decorating Set

Cake decorating has always bee something I wanted to be better at, but I just never invested in the right tools. The reasoning behind it is, well I also sew, embroider, scrapbook, paint, I dabble in wood work and photography, I love to crochet, and goodness you name it there is a chance I have interest in it. My craft rooms (plural) are mini craft stores.

That said, I have invested in every passion of mine and some tend to fall behind on the list.

However, I am proud to say I have finally been able to get myself a set of Decorating tips that I am IN LOVE WITH!

Thanks to great sellers on Amazon, I was able to review the YuliTech Cake Decoration Tip Set, which Included 16pcs Stainless Steel Icing Tip + 10 Plastic Bags + 1 coupler + measuring Spoon set which helps to make the perfect mixture.  Needless to say, I went from missing that one or two icing tips that I had from many a days ago, to owning a case that holds 16 beautiful, brand new, ready to make cake art tips, and a coupler which I have ALWAYS wanted (to make flowers).

To test them out, I ALMOST baked a full out cake for the family, but since the kids and I had literally just made brownies a day or two ago, and we try to eat somewhat heathy, I went ahead and just made a quick batch of buttercream icing and decorated a plate.

Before I go on I must answer the question and say yes, the kids helped clean the plate when I was finished – as well as we “painted” the brownies too (the toddler’s words not mine).

This set comes with the plastic pastry bags you need to start out with cake decorating. If you have your own pastry bags, then at least you know you can let the little ones practice with you, without using your nicer bags.

I tested out 5 of the tips before the heat of the sun was becoming too much for my delicate and quickly made buttercream (we live in a no AC house). When finished I looked at the plate and realized every cake I bake from here on out will look so much better. Presentation is just something I need to have in my life – and my cakes have been sadly lacking.

It was love.

IS love.

Honestly – I needed this set to complete me, and complete me it has! I have another set on the way (a different style) which I am equally excited to review!

This set can be purchased below: (It’s a great deal)

Happy Baking!

The Perfect Baked Bread

I love making fresh bread. There is just something about the way it makes the house smell and the taste it has while it is fresh from the oven, that makes fresh baked bread a family favorite.

Often however, when I make bread it doesn’t have that look that I wish it would – you know, the artesian texture and posh bakery style. I understand this is somewhat silly for a mom of two kids three and under to wish for, but I do like my presentation even if it is only for my own desire.

Well, after some research, I was given the opportunity to review and sample a Bakecrafts – Handmade Oval Botform Banneton Proofing Basket Bowl. This bowl is as the title continues to say, “Perfect for Making Artisan Bread with Rising Pattern”. The Bowl I sampled was a 10” oval, and even came with a free Dough Scraper (bonus!)

After the first round of proofing I transferred my dough into the bowl where I let it proof a second time. (roughly for 90 minutes in a 95 degree oven – my secret to quick proofing).

It is that easy folks. After that I just flipped it out and baked it onto an Olive Oil greased baking sheet. The texture the Oval Botform gave my bread was everything I wished for and more. I dusted the bread with some flour to really highlight the pattern, and sliced it while it was still nice and hot.

Today’s bread was an Italian Olive Oil and Herbed bread perfect for the spaghetti dinner I will be serving the family later tonight.
If you, like me, enjoy baking fresh bead and really just hope to have that artesian look, I highly recommend this. The product is available on Amazon (link below), and if you have Prime membership you will have it and be able to make yourself a fancy loaf of bread, within just a few days.
Ready for second proof

Happy baking!
