Baking Tins

Whether it’s a stainless steel or ceramic  baking tin, there’s a wide array of options you can opt for depending on what type of pastry you’re going to bake. They’re often coated with a nonstick surface that’s essentially helpful to keep your cake in-tact. 

Look for tins that are sturdy and not so heavy to handle. The right kind of tin makes a huge difference in the finished product.

Measuring Cups

There are two types of  measuring cups: one for liquids and the other for dry ingredients. The only difference between the two is the rim of the liquid measuring cup has a pour spout. These are used for larger amounts of measuring needed.

Whisk

For blending the ingredients smoothly together,  whisks are tasked to do just that. Also, clumps are inevitable so in order to break them apart and fluff the mixture up, you want to whisk it real good!
