When it comes to baking tools, an icing turntable can help make putting the finishing touches on your cakes a whole lot simpler, whether you want precise dainty decorations running along the edge of your cake or want to pipe some colour onto your bakes with ease.
In our selection we have looked out for sturdy and generally heavy turntables as they tend to have more stability, especially if you are icing larger or tiered cakes. How easily these icing turntables spin was crucial, as well as the height, as some bakers prefer to be able to easily see the whole cake, while others, who like to ice their cakes with more detail, prefer a shorter stand to prevent their wrist from stretching. Some of the models have extra features such as a tilting stand to make decoration as easy as possible. Read on to discover our favourites, from Lakeland, Dunelm, John Lewis and more.
