Get yourself a good Sugarpaste Rolling Pin!
This one may seems a bit daft, but how many of you are covering cakes with a regular old rolling pin? Chances are its a wooden one and you’re finding it a bit on the short side? Sugarpaste rolling pins are super smooth and designed to be non-stick, they really are much better to work with than a regular kitchen rolling pin and mean that your sugarpaste is far smoother before it even makes it’s way onto the cake.
Get yourself a dedicated sugarpaste rolling pin, the longest you can afford (find them here in The Pink Whisk Shop). Put it on your birthday list or treat yourself. Covering cakes is a whole lot easier with one of these lovelies!
And once you’ve got it, you need to look after it. Don’t go ramming it in an already full cupboard you need to protect it from bumps and bangs. If you’re a little bit sewing handy get yourself a tea towel. Make a pocket in one of the long sides, measuring it around your rolling and stitch at either end of the pocket.
Sorry, perhaps I should have got the iron out for this pic
Sit the pin in the pocket and roll it up, it’ll keep that rolling pin safe and snug and it can be
jammed put in the cupboard without a worry!
