Here are the baking items I use.

I am not paid to sponsor any specific brand. I have tried many items and I like these best.


by Wilton, these pans are 2 inches deep and the set includes 6, 8, 10, and 12 inch cake pans. I found two of these sets works great. An economic option with sides that go straight up without flaring.

by Ateco, these pans are 3 inches deep and come with a removeable bottom, which makes removing the baked cake so much easier. Comes in both a 6 and 8 inch size. Great for delicate desserts that can't be turned over, or when you need an easy removal in general.

by Ateco, these pans are 3 inches deep and have beautiful square corners. Comes in a 6, 8, 10, and 12 inch size. These have nice sharp corners and are deep for extra tall cake layers.

by KitchenAid, I love my mixer. It saves so much time if you are going to be doing a good amount of baking. Strong and dependable!

by KitchenAid, this beater works great for rubbing the side of the bowl while mixing, so you don't have to do it manually. It's also great for throwing all your dry ingredients around, so be ready!
