While I’m not a huge fan of buying cake toys for the heck of it, every once in a while I come across something which is truly useful and it’s a no brainer to justify buying it. A cake maker friend showed me her Craftabout and then I knew I had to get my hands on one – how ridiculously awesome is this? Finally a nice, tidy place to keep all the “where the heck did I put this thing?” tools and tiny bits and pieces we’ve all got in our kitchens. The Craftabout has 7 clear acrylic compartments on the base (25cm wide), which spins like a lazy susan – and each compartment is 80mm wide so you can fit a decent amount of stuff in each one and see what’s in there.
Hobby Hoppers, which is a boutique company owned by Trish and Barbara (who are niece and Aunt), the Craftabout has about a million and one uses in a cake business – including just watching it spin instead of getting any real work done! (Okay, so maybe don’t use it for that purpose…) Hobby Hoppers sell a number of craft and handmade products which cake people will find useful, everything from washi tape to ribbon and note cards. I got a little bit lost when I went to have a poke around their Ebay store because they have truly brilliant stuff.
I’m especially proud to be supporting a local, small innovative business (they actually invented the product!) and highly recommend both the Craftabout and the women at Hobby Hoppers. It’s a truly useful item with multiple applications and would suit a small or home based cake business…although in my house, it’s going to quickly be used by the kids for all their endless school supplies instead.
