I believe a turntable is in my future as a Mother's Day present..the one I have now is a plastic Wilton that just sits about an inch off the counter...just wondering which one is the best. I saw one at Michaels by Wilton that tilts and one that doesn't..anyone have recommendations on these or is there another brand I should check out?

Whatever you do.....DO NOT BUY THE CRAPPY WILTON ONE THAT TILTS! I have it and hate it!

When the times comes for me to purchase another one, I'm going with a metal, heavy duty one!

I use a lazy susan. It has a larger work surface and in turn I can put larger cakes on it.
The tilting ones kinda freak me out, cause I can see a cake ending up on the counter/floor but I'm kinda a spaz! icon_biggrin.gif

Isn't it nice to receive cake stuff for gifts thumbs_up.gif !!

Here is the thread on the turntable topic. Not very long, but interesting.

I was going to buy a new one and my DH said he could make one for me! Isn't he the sweetest! (or he saw the price) LOL!

I have the Wilton heavy duty one and it's ok (a little wobbly) but I just got a Fat Daddio turntable (heavy duty) and it's so much nicer then the Wilton one. I haven't heard anything good about the Wilton tilting turntable.

I have a turntable that is made of particle board and covered with formica. It has a round surface on one side and a large rectangular surface on the other side. It is the best because it can be used for round cakes and sheet cakes. And it is very heavy so it doesn't move at all. I got it at Campbell's Cake and Candy Supply in York, PA. They don't have a web site, but if you google it you can get their address and phone number. Very much worth looking into.

I have a metal cake stand that I love, But i just found this new stand called "The Cake Wheel". When I decide to buy a new turntable this is the one I am going to buy. Its on the expensive side but has enterchangable tables for the different size cakes. Here is the link to check it out. http://www.thecakewheel.com/products.html

The cake wheel does look interesting...I especially like the sheet cake base...hmmm thanks for posting I might look into buying one of those!

You can turn a round turntable into one for a sheet cake by putting a sheet cak pan on top of it up side down icon_smile.gif

Thanks everyone for the input...I think I'll investigate the others instead of going with the Wilton.
