Cake decorating can very quickly become a very expensive hobby. Get professional results while saving money by purchasing these cake decorating necessities at the dollar store.
Cake and Cupcake Carriers
Transport lovely cakes and cupcakes with ease by purchasing dessert carriers. A bonus is that you can easily and inexpensively replace the carrier if you accidentally leave it at a host’s home.
Snap Blade Knife
Use a brand new snap blade knife to carefully cut designs out of fondant. These knives are perfect for cutting straight edges.
Dollar stores are a great place to find white, pastel, and mini cupcake liners. They work the same as brand name varieties but cost a fraction of the price.
You can never have too much food coloring (especially red!). So pick up a few packages anytime you see some for a dollar. Late night cake decorating binges will appreciate your forethought.
Fun tip: Adding a few drops of food color to your cake batter is a fun way to brighten up any light cake batter. Try a few drops of blue in a Vanilla 90 Second Cake for an easy and delicious Blue Velvet Cake.
Pure Vanilla Extract
The price of pure vanilla extract has skyrocketed over the last couple of months. Save a few cents by buying your vanilla at the dollar store. Though the containers are small they are a better deal per ounce than most supermarkets and Amazon!
