Ok, I was just wondering what everyones favorite tool they use that was not made intentionally for cake decorating;

For example mine is this thin metal clay scraper:


its safe to go in the dishwasher, flexible and it has a nice clean edge that i shape enough to go nice through fondant and gumpaste and because it is so thin i can get closer and a it bends. I could go on and on, it works great for scraping up the stuck on the surface stuff. does that make since. Oh and it cost very little. i got mine at ac moore.

Don't even have to think about it. My computer. I learn so many things from cake bulletin boards and I design many of my cake designs from clipart and fonts that I have accessed through the computer.

Well let's see... Pringles can for filling bags, stencils for making cookie cutter templates, bench scraper for smoothing buttercream, plastic putty knife (scraper) for scraping buttercream off the practice area, painting trough for putting the excess frosting in... I could go on and on! icon_biggrin.gif
