Hi all,

I am desparately trying to find an extra long bench scraper for ganaching tall cakes (between 6 and 8 inches in height) and am having no luck finding  them.I have seen many of them being sold on australian websites, but none in the UK.

Does anyone know of a supplier?

You might be better of looking for a "carpenter's square" at the DIY store or on Amazon ;)

Buy from an Australian supplier  - we give loads of our money to UK suppliers icon_razz.gif

And our dollar has dropped a bit against the pound - so your postage will probably only be the conversion

I use a drywall taping knife from the hardware store.

This one is in the US.  Great reviews on these 8 and 10 inch bench scrapers.

You can also take a carpenter's square (shaped like an "L" ) from the hardware store to do tall cakes. I saw a you tube video once showing it but I don't remember the link.  The bottom of the "L" rests on the cake board and you scrape around with the long side.

I am sure she will post to UK - send her a message

This is what I found in the UK.  Cheap enough and you could probably get one direct from a decorating wholesalers in an industrial unit in any town. Take the handle off if necessary. Professional Taping / Smoothing Knife up to 14"

This site is not in the UK, but you can contact them about international shipping.  I got the 10 inch scraper from them.
