This is one of them items that isn't completly necessary to own, as in you can make do without it!
I had started to go through a little phase of wanting to make cakes last year.
It all started when I came across these little cake cook books that just looked great, that I wanted to make them myself!
So I started buying a range of little products whenever I came across them that would be nice in the kitchen. One of the items I came across was this cake tester. I think it was from dunelm mill for only £1.50-£2
Previous to buying this I just used a barbecue skewer, but as that was thicker it left more of a noticeable mark on the cake.
The idea behind a cake tester is simple. You just put the tester into the cake to 'test' if it's ready or not.
You will realise if it is ready or not by removing the tester.. if it comes out with bits of uncooked cake mix then it needs longer in the oven and isn't ready.
Basically that's all you do with the cake tester, and it doesn't hold much else of a function.
I didn't actually need to buy this but it was cheap enough and it saved digging out a skewer each time.
The cake tester is really easy to wash under soapy water.
It has quite a big handle to use so you can get an easy enough grip onto it.
It says cake tester on the handle so you can't get it mixed up and wonder what it is lol.
Overall a simple product that does the job.
There's not much else that can be said about what is essentially a stick to prod cakes with ha ha.
Though the good thing is it's easily spotted when amongst all other products in the draw, so I don't need to rattle around for it!
Thanks for reading :)
