What tool could you now not live without that you might not have known you needed when you first got into the business?

My square and rectanglar Magic line pans have saved me so much time when frosting with buttercream. I used to use the basic Wilton ones and could never get a sharp edge to the corners.

Believe it or not, this little inexpensive tool is the one thing that I never want to be without: http://www.karenscookies.net/Cookie-Scraper_p_607.html

I've used it on cookies and cakes...it's so versatile...I reach for it constantly when working on a project.

Most useful:
Very small (Nicholas Lodge) spatula
Stitch marker
Non-stick rolling pin
Tappits

Would kill for:
A bigger KA
The KA blade that actually scrapes the side of the bowl
That plastic top for the KA that let's you feed ingredients into the bowl
An airbrush

An airbrush... I use to to color and shade gumpaste flowers and color cakes. Never thought I would put it on my MUST HAVE list... but it is definitely there.

I *heart* tappits too.

Would love an agbay, but I am pretty handy with my long serrated knife (that likes to bite me icon_lol.gif), I need a 10qt mixer for icing, would love a separate kitchen... icon_wink.gif

Granted... we operate on a slightly different scale, but my absolute, can't live without piece of equipment is my Bravo Tritico. It makes ganache, pastry cream, egg based buttercreams, fruit curds, etc. all by just dumping in the ingedients and walking away. Awesome!
