If you’re looking for more ways to enhance your lifestyle, you should definitely consider getting into a hobby, like baking. Baking is a fun way to pass the time, appease your family and friends, and improve upon your cooking skills. Not to mention, baking also relieves stress, which most of us have a lot of these days! With all of its benefits, it’s no wonder so many Americans love to bake. Consider yourself one of those people who have been baking more lately? Take your craft to the next level, and purchase one – or all – of these awesome baking tools to add to your kitchen’s arsenal.
Weighing your baking ingredients is key if you want to get a perfect result every time. This is especially true when it comes to flour, yeast, and other critical ingredients. The most accurate way to measure is by using a digital scale, which can tell you the exact measurement of wet and dry ingredients. Buy one, and you’ll soon find yourself using it for far more than just baking.
Frosting makes just about every baked good ten times better. However, it can be difficult to achieve that professional, perfectly smooth look when you’re working with a butter knife. Take your baking game up a notch with an offset spatula, which are great for frosting baked goods and spreading batter into pans. You can also pull them out at breakfast, when they’ll be put to good use spreading jam on toast or butter on pancakes.
Pastry brushes are a must-have if you want to apply an even coating of egg wash delicately and quickly to your baked goods – also known as the stuff that gives pastries their color and shine. This inexpensive tool will help breads get that sought-after golden crust and will make quick work of topping delicate pastries with butter or frosting.
