Welcome to my cake decorating tools page. I’ve included here some of my favourite and most useful cake decorating and modelling tools that I use.
I use this tool a lot! It’s great at making indents for things such as eye sockets. It can also be used to soften the edges of petals.

Scallop And Comb Tool
The scallop part of this tool is great for marking smiles on faces, while the comb is good for embossing designs.

Knife And Scriber Tool
I would be lost without this tool. It’s great for cutting, but I love it for making marks and indents.

Scriber Needle Modelling Tool
I use this tool to create small holes in my models or for decorative design. It is also used to scribe directly onto cakes. The finer one is also great for removing air bubbles from fondant.

Food Graded Brushes
These are essential for using glue but also for painting on your cakes. It is good to have a variety of sizes.

Non Stick Rolling Pin
PME non stick rolling pins for rolling out all types of sugarpaste. They come in a variety of sizes. I have a 6 inch for roiling out small amounts of icing and a 20 inch for when I am covering a cake.

DIY Dusting Pouch
This is a little tip that I learnt a long time ago! If you are working on small sugar modelling projects then this little dusting pouch helps a lot! Cut a small square of cheesecloth or food grade muslin, about 20cm square. Place a spoonful of icing sugar or cornflour in the middle. I personally use cornflour as I find it dries out the icing and my hands less. Finally, draw up the corners and secure with string. This little dusting pouch, when tapped on your board, will let out a small dusting of powder. This helps to prevent your sugarpaste from sticking to the board while being rolled. The dusting pouch can then be placed in an air tight container ready for you to carry on with your project later.
