Im just curious to hear which basic deco tools you love and cant live without?
post #2 of 7
For basic tools I couldn't live without the following:

Turntable - I have a cheapie one and it works great.
Bench scraper for smoothing sides
Many many many off set spatulas
Paint brushes just for caking
Fondant cutters - I love the Ateco nested sets - a little pricey but totally worth it

More expensive/advanced items I could not live without
KitchenAid Mixer
Pasta attachment for KitchenAid
Agbay cake leveler
My entire library of SugarShack DVDs - not expensive unless you buy all of them at once

FYI, the new fondant molds from Wilton are awesome and cheap. You can't go wrong with those.

1) Turntable
2) Small, medium & large spatula--For me, I need my small spatula for the top edges of the cake, the medium one for the sides, etc.
3) my 14" serated knife for leveling
4) fondant smoother
5) Kitchen Aid & my paddle attachment on my KA
