The Range of Cake Collars
Cake collars are thin, flexible strips of material used to create a barrier around the edge of a cake, preventing fillings from spilling out and ensuring a smooth, even finish. They come in various materials, such as acetate and plastic, and can be found in different lengths and widths to accommodate various cake sizes.
Using a cake collar helps to achieve clean, sharp edges on your cakes, making them look professionally done. They're especially useful when working with layered cakes or ones with intricate designs, as they help hold everything in place while you work your magic.
Clear Acetate Cake Collars
Clear acetate cake collars are a popular choice among bakers because of their transparency, which allows you to see your cake's layers and fillings as you work. This makes it easier to ensure an even distribution of frosting, mousse, or any other filling you're using.
Acetate Cake Collar Rolls
These are wider strips of acetate that can be cut to the desired length. They are ideal for creating taller cakes or for wrapping around the sides of a cake to create a smooth, even finish. Cardboard cake collars offer the same advantages as plastic and can be recycled and composted. You can also find bespoke sizes for cardboard cake collars, rendering the protection of your baked goods a piece of cake.
Acetate Cake Collar Rolls
These are large rolls of acetate that can be cut to any size. They are perfect for creating custom-sized cake collars for unique cake designs.
How to Use Cake Collars
Using cake collars is easy, and it can help you achieve a professional-looking finish for your cakes. Here's how to use them:
Measure the height and circumference of your cake: Before you start, you'll need to measure the height and circumference of your cake to determine how long your cake collar needs to be.
Cut the cake collar to size: Use a pair of scissors to cut the cake collar to the desired length. Make sure it is long enough to wrap around the sides of the cake with a slight overlap.
Attach the cake collar to the cake: Place the cake collar around the sides of the cake, making sure it is straight and even. Secure the ends together with a small piece of tape or a paperclip.
Decorate the cake: Once the cake collar is in place, you can decorate the cake as desired. The collar will help create clean, sharp edges and prevent any filling from leaking out of the cake. You can also use the cake collar to create decorative patterns or designs on the sides of the cake.
Can I reuse cake collars?
No. Bacteria contaminates the cake collar and washing it cannot guarantee it to be safe from bacteria.
Can I use other types of plastic instead of acetate for cake collars?
Acetate is the most commonly used plastic for cake collars, as it is food-safe and transparent. However, you can use other types of food-safe plastic if you prefer.
Are cake collars necessary for every cake?
Cake collars are not necessary for every cake, but they can be helpful for creating a professional finish or for preventing filling from leaking out.
Can I bake with cake collars?
No, cake collars are not designed for baking and should not be used in the oven. They are only meant to be used as a decorative or functional tool after the cake has been baked.
