I am in baking/pastry school. Our issued kits are not very complete...classmates are asking me for a list of items they should get. Here is what I recommended fondant tools, a rolling mat, couplers, tips and bags, bake even strips and flower nails, foam pads for flower forming, a turntable, and one of those fondant cutters with 3 wheels and an exacto knife.. Anything I missed? They don't want to spend money on unnecessary crap like many of us do when we first start out (I definitely did!!) Advice is appreciated...
BTW...I don't mean they need this for school. But many of us get together for practice sessions or practice at home and I am coaching on beginner fondant, another coaches on fruit carving, another guy is great with cookies. It's really fun.
off set spatulas, Yellow 'Oops' Sticks, and a whole lot of patience.
We did get offset spatulas in our kit. What are yellow oops sticks? I may need those! lol
Edit....here is what we got in our kits specific to baking. Rubber spatula. 2 offset spatulas, 1 straight spatula, measuring cups and spoons, bench scraper, 16" piping bag with 3 HUGE tips!
interesting question--just an aside here--but for the high cost of some of the tuition they charge--you'd think they could provide with a better list and kit--anyhow--i get crabby about culinary school tuition--stay crabby i mean ---
i think your list looks pretty good in general--
but i mean i hate couplers myself and don't use some of the other items--so my point is that i think everyone needs to get used to decorating and make those individual decisions for themselves--
i'm no help huh -- sorry --but i mean if your aim is to save money idk--i'll shut up
i mean i can hardly function without parchment for piping bags--
here-- i thought of something helpful perhaps--maybe list what is in the kit so we know how you are being equipped in the first place--
quitting while i'm ahead--
uggghhh..I hope they teach us to use parchment for piping. I have not had much success with it. I edited previous post to include what they gave us. I did tell them not to go out and buy the most expensive products. They just want to know what they may need for our practice sessions or to practice at home. Oh we also got the flat knife...
now maybe you can get a small refund on tuition 'cause they don't have to teach you!
yeah fat chance--wishful thinking--
but you can make your triangle any size -- just practice making cones with any kind a paper--
best of the best to you
I will try it. Tried before...so much better to have someone show you in person
stop by anytime and we'll have a go at it ;)
lol..where do you live? put on a pot of coffee
memphis ten oh c coffee's on!
AA collapsible rolling cart might help.
oops stick AKA: " Two-in-one decorating tool " had to look it up. either that or toothpicks.
