30 Days To A Better Cake: Day 15 – Cake Glue

I use a cake “glue” to attach my bottom tier to the cake base. Check out how I make it:

    Hi Rach, I have been watching your 30 days for cake. I am at day 5. I want to know about the attachment that scrapes the bowl that you talk about. I have a kitchen aid Pro 450. Is that a Kitchen Aid attachment or a generic. I bake every week for a non profit and I hate having to scrape every time I mix. Any info you can give me would be great. When I went on the Kitchen Aid site they don’t mention the Pro 450. I was wondering if they might have them at a Bed Bath and Beyond.

    Love all your cakes. You are quite talented. Ann Crowe, Big Pine Key now Lakeland THanks.

    • Hi Ann! I’m glad you’re enjoying the videos! It’s not made by Kitchen Aid, but I still like it a lot. Is your mixer bowl 4.5 or 5 quarts? If you can give me that information, I’ll send you a link to one that should work with that model.

      Hi Rachel,

      Thanks for getting back to me. It is KitchenAid Pro 450 and it looks to me like it is 5 qt. All the mixing attachments are metal not plastic if that helps. I make 4 batches of cookies and 2 batches of bread every Friday for sale at our classic car show. The proceeds go to theBaptist Children’s Home in our city. I have to scrape with the rubber spatula and would love to eliminate that step. I don’t think I have the patience for making your type of cakes but I have learned some helpful hints from you. Like the damp cloth so the flour doesn’t go every where. Your cakes are beautiful. Wish you were closer so I could order one for a special occasion. Thanks again. Ann

    • My mixer came with all metal attachments, too, so I was a little worried about using anything else. Thankfully, I haven’t had any problems so far! I know your cookie and bread dough is probably much thicker than my cake batter and icing, but I do use the same paddles when I make gumpaste and that stuff is VERY think. I think it will work just fine for you. Here is a link to a scraping paddle that should work for your 5-quart bowl-lift mixer:

      I could totally go for some of your home made bread right now. Stop making me so hungry!

    • Thanks Rachel. I am definitely going to look into it. If u were closer I would bring you a loaf.
