This Christmas I was given money for some new cake decorating equipment. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good turntable? I have a wood lazy susan right now but it just doesn't cut it. It has a lip around the edge and its hard to clean. Thanks for your help.

Oh, and where would I purchase a clay gun or sugar craft gun?

I received an Ateco turntable for Christmas. It has a nice, heavy cast iron base and very smooth turning.

It's not cheap - $80 at Williams-Sonoma - but since it was a gift, I guess I got lucky!

I have the steel Wilton one and despite several not so great reviews on it, I am glad I went ahead and bought it- never let me down. I did buy the tilting once and returned it since I didnt find it stable enough. Good luck.

I LOVE my $7 turntables that I purchased from IKEA. They're smooth, sturdy and large enough to hold even a full sheet cake stable.


edit to add they're made of solid butcher block wood.

The Ateco cast iron bottom turntable is very good (Wilton's is similar), but the turntable that I've fallen in love with is the one from Fat Daddio's. It spins flawlessly, the top does not detach from the bottom, and it has a no skid base. I haven't touched my other turntables since getting it.

Haha! I use that one, too! I have a few "real" turntables, but I always end up grabbing my lazy susan instead! I think its the size it has going for it, and that my other two are plastic.
