Over the past few years cake decoration has become increasingly popular and extremely professional results have been obtained in the family kitchen.
Once started, this hobby can quickly border on the obsessive and the need for practical but attractive cake decorating supplies has rocketed.
The modern kitchen must be stylish and any equipment in it not only has to look good but cut it in the useful stakes too. It is pointless having all the gizmos if they break or fail to deliver when called upon to do so.
