When I’m in the middle of cakey chaos, the kitchen is a mess, I’m a mess and I don’t seem to have a square cm of worktop space left, the card of really useful stuff is my saviour! A quick glance! No floury fingers on my phone or sticky fingers on a pencil. Just a quick reference and voila! I have what I need.

It's such a useful card. Maths has never been my strong point so it's perfect for having all the information needed in one place. Plus it saves on wastage, especially when it comes to sugarpaste quantities as I usually buy far too much. Thanks Annabelle Jane for another great card.

If you are going to have one card this is definetly a must have. Lots of information, in one place. For a newbie hobby baker like myself, it tells you how much sugar paste to use on different size cakes, how much buttercream and ganache is needed so avoids so much wastage, even down to how much ribbon is needed to go around a cake board and much more. A beautiful, wipeable card with a fountain of 'useful' information.
