Wilton 53 Piece Supreme Cake Decorating Set

Wilton 53 Piece Cake Decorating KitEver wanted to try your hand at cake decorating? I know I get the urge every time I see someone’s elaborately decorated cake. I think hmmm I’m sure I could do that – with a lot of practice of course.  But we all have to start somewhere and having the right equipment is pretty much essential.

Just imagine being able to create amazing icing decorations such as the wedding dress below which I photographed in a shop in Vienna. Absolutely amazing.

I’m a bit of a fan of the Wilton range of bakeware,  so I checked out what they had available and lo and behold I found the Wilton 53 Piece Supreme Cake Decorating Set.  It’s a great starter set for anyone wanting to get into the art of cake decorating and frosting. Remember that even the creator of this wedding dress had to start somewhere.

This cake decorating set includes everything you’ll need to get you started and it includes icing bags, icing colors, a metal spatula and metal decorating tips.

VillaWare Pizza Grill BBQ Pizza Maker

VillaWare have manufactured a pizza stone that works both on your outdoor grill and in your oven. So you can use it outside on those warm summer days when you are having a barbecue or indoors on those cold, wet days. Cooking outdoors also means you don’t have to heat up your kitchen on hot days.

The VillaWare PizzaGrill BBQ Pizza Maker measures 12 inches by 15 inches so holds a good size pizza and it sits directly on top of an outdoor grill. The stone is surrounded by a stainless steel frame. This works as a splatter screen but also ensures that the pizza doesn’t slide off the edge when you are trying to remove it from the stone.

Built into the stainless steel frame is a thermometer so you can gauge the right temperature of the grill and know exactly when to add the pizza.

Anolon 16-Quart Stainless Steel Covered Stockpot

Anolon 16 Quart Stock PotA stock pot is one of the those basics that every kitchen should have. It’s not only for making stocks either. A stock pot has a variety of uses including cooking soups, boiling up large batches of vegetables like potatoes and corn, cooking pasta and even for boiling up lobsters and crab. It’s also handy for cooking up big batches of foods for parties or family get-togethers.

The Anolon 16-Quart Stainless Steel Covered Stockpot is made from stainless steel with an aluminum core.

Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat which is why it is often used in cookware. It means even heating without hot spots. And there is no need to have any concerns about the aluminum content because it is sandwiched between layers of stainless steel. This gives you all the benefits of aluminum without the health concerns.

The handles on this pot are stainless steel and riveted to the pot so you won’t have the problem of screws coming lose and handles coming off at the most inappropriate time.

This stockpot is oven safe to 500F which means you can transfer this one straight from the stove top to the oven. This saves you having to transfer the contents to another oven proof dish and also saves on clean up time.

The Anolon 16qt Stockpot comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

REVIEW: Trudeau Gravy/Fat Separator

Trudea Gravy Fat SeparatorThere is nothing worse than lumpy fatty gravy. It can really ruin a good meal.

This is where a good gravy/fat separator can come in handy.

The Trudeau 0991105 Gravy/Fat Separator creates a smooth fat reduced gravy by filtering the lumpy bits and the fat through a fitted strainer.

This pitcher was voted as the best fat/gravy separator by Cooks Illustrated in 2004.

What We Like

  • The pitcher is heat resistant to 400F – this doesn’t mean you should be putting this in the oven however. What this means is that the gravy you pour into the pitcher can be as hot as 400F without causing the pitcher to crack.
  • It is microwave safe.
  • This gravy/fat separator is dishwasher safe so you won’t need to hand wash this one.
  • It comes with a 5 year warranty.
  • It holds up to 4 cups of gravy so is a pretty decent size.
  • It comes with measurements along the side.
