Helene Dujardin, of Tartellete, recommends some essential pastry tools:


The best tool when rolling out pastry dough without too much flour (“Mine is out all the time”): Flour Duster

It’s simple but so effective. Perfect for lightly dusting flour on cooking surfaces. Simply dip the end of the wand in the flour and squeeze handles to gently and evenly sprinkle across your desired surface. Spring action keeps flour from falling out all at once. It’s a timeless tool that any baker can appreciate.



Best tool for cookies: Silpat Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat

Baking has never been so easy. This mat turns any pan into a nonstick surface with no greasing necessary. Cleaning is just as easy, simply wipe it down using hot water and dish soap, shake off any excess water, and hang or lay it flat on an even surface to dry.

Silicone Rolling Pin Spacer Bands


Best tool for novice at rolling dough: Rolling Pin Rings

It is easy to use and you get even thickness through out. No more guessing!

Little Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse

The mother-daughter team at the Riviera Bakehouse in Westchester, New York, and authors of The Whimsical Bakehouse present an abundance of fabulous new recipes for little decorated cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes, and more–all in fresh flavor combinations, like caramel cake with dulce de leche buttercream or spicy chocolate cake with cinnamon-chocolate whipped cream.

They’ll take you step-by-step through the process of creating cakes piped and appliquéd with bumblebees (white chocolate wings and nonpareil stripes make them irresistible!), blooming roses (or, if you prefer, delicate hydrangeas with lifelike shaded petals), wild meringues (dressed with tiger stripes, zebra stripes, or leopard spots), and spiky dragons (right down to the serpentine tail).

These little cakes are as fun to make as they are delicious to eat!
