Ruth knows that I'm an amateur baker, so when I'm not making pineapple upside-down cakes or tunnel of fudge bundts, I like to whip up a layer cake covered in rich butter cream. What better way to make that confection all the more lovely than with this Ateco Decorating Comb, which I think dates back to the late 1950s or early 1960s, based on its 55-cent price tag from a little shop called Williams Sonoma.
I like how the packaging touts "simple quick decorating of pastries and cakes," that will "give your cake that 'finished' look!!!" I think it's funny how "finished" is in quotation marks. Is it not really finished? Or just sort-of finished? Is it a euphemism for something that I can't figure out? Who knows! And I love how excited they are to make this announcement on the packaging -- so much so they had to use three exclamation points.
I think I would be, too!!!
