I'm currently in the process of starting a cake business in Egypt. Tools are very expensive and not easy to come by out here and the people that bring cake decorating tools to sell mark up the prices outrageously. I lived in the states and my family is still out there so I plan to make a trip and to stock up on tools.


I already have a loot of different tools, I've been doing cake decorating as a hobby since 2008 so I've collected a lot of over the paste few years but I want to invest in some good flower cutters and veiners and other fondant and gumpaste tools. I'd really love some suggestions for good quality and affordable tools, I need to stock up because I don't have the luxury to purchase tools when I need them. What would you suggest as essentials to have? 


I want to be able to make tiered weddings cakes, birthday cakes, special occasion cakes as well as cupcakes and cookies (but not as much of a focus on cookies)

My favorite tools as of lately have been the PME plunger cutters.  I love them, all of them.  They are so easy to use and are quick.

I also like the tapit letter cutters.

love those plungers too!!! cutter, plunger and veiner--get outa here!!!


in set #6 & 7  wonder how that pearl maker does


i mean you can't beat the 25 inch silicone one that has the three sizes in one--but that one on ebay is interesting--i never saw one like it before-- probably leaves a seam on both sides though huh

Hello dear, I have checked your page I love it really ... I think the reason of the prices in Egypt is your customs rules that makes the prices height !!! 

Try to get your tools from the states it is better for you
