Just thought it would be fun for everyone to list a couple caking/cookie making/decorating tools that you just can't live without or you just use them like crazy, and maybe the brands you use icon_smile.gif I'll go first

Foam Core Board to make my own cake boards
Funky Font Tappits
Silicon Mat to Roll out my fondant
Magic Line 3" Pans

my magic line pans and bedtime. That would be when my kids go to bed so I can work on a cake without someone hanging on my legs.

I also am in love with luster dust and those little non-skid shelf liner that I put under cake boards and boxes so they don't slide around in my van.

i only had my KA for a few weeks but ive been baking every week - sometimes twice a week

also got myself a wilton choc pro (cake balls) and had ALOT of fun with that

oh, and for the first time ever im using a square pan.... found its easier for my office to cut/serve from a square cake than round - more cake somehow

Agreed! I have a 3 year old and a 5 month old!! She pulls her little stool up to the counter and says, I watch mommy icon_smile.gif I love it, but much easier when they're in bed icon_smile.gif

Me too...mother of almost 2 year old and a 3 year old. i can't seem to get creative until they are sleep. I feel stressed and guilty trying to spend time doing a cake with them awake. I will bake and let them cool and don't even think about decorating until after they fall asleep.

My daughter loves MMF and she is always asking if she can eat the "candy". I tend to only decorate after 8 icon_smile.gif But try and do the preparing of cake/icings coloring when they are awake

My 2 and 4 year olds keep begging to eat the icing!

Oh and sooo cute, I was in Kohls today and walked past the Kitchenaid mixers and my 2 year old said "Look Mommy, see fondant!" icon_lol.gif

Awwwww.....I too have the guilt when my little one is staring at me from the baby gate holding his hands out for me to come get him. My son is 19 months now. icon_smile.gif It would be easier if I didnt work at home. Sometimes I think work and home should be separate...that it would be easier that way.

Hmm, lets see. What tools do I love? I love using heating cores, my plastic scraper to smooth BC with, my KA of course. The best $200 Ive spent in a while!
