HIC’s Amish Cake Tester is the authentic more accurate way to bake a cake that’s fully cooked in the center. Made in America by Amish crafters in Lancaster PA, this natural corn broom is a great addition to cake making and baking supplies for easy and accurate cake testing. Straw’s natural texture holds raw batter better than using metal cake testers. Longer than toothpicks, the corn husk straws (measuring approximately 3.5-inches) reach deeper into cakes for more accuracy than the toothpick test. The hanger loop allows it to be stored conveniently near the oven. It’s safe for use with non-stick cake pans and baking pans and makes a great kitchen decoration, too.
Simply break a strand from the straw broom and insert it into the cake’s center. If the straw comes out clean, the cake is fully cooked. Use a single straw to pierce air holes in pastry dough or pie crust to eliminate bubbles. For cake decorating, use it to dust crumbs from the surface of a cake before applying icing, draw or stipple on icing decorations, etch line art into fondant, and more.
