    1. Hello there Kaileena...

      What an informative blog you have here. I just love all the baking equipments you've posted in this post. If I have all these in my kitchen, I'll be the happiest baker on earth! Hahaha....

      Thank you for visiting my blog and to answer your question regarding the pleats on my currypuff, what I can say is practise makes perfect. Though mine is not near to perfect just yet, but I will keep on practising.

      Take care...

    3. There is so much equipment for baking, its amazing to see all the things you can do. I especially like the two level cooling rack, I've only ever seen single level ones. That rack is very convenient for those who are cooking large amounts of desserts. Its great to see these different tools used for baking. http://www.kingskingco.com/listing.asp?dept_id=46040&nopopup=1
