Cooking and baking are great hobbies. If you like to make baked creations, then you are likely in need of a cooling rack. You need a place to put all of those cookies, bars, brownies and cupcakes to cool before it’s time to frost and eventually, eat. The right kind of rack can make the cooling experience a lot easier. You don’t have to worry about cookies melting into a plate or cakes falling in the middle when you place them on a sturdy rack where they can completely dry until you’re ready for the next step. Bakeware certainly includes a few racks to help with the process.
A cooling rack is an essential for the serious baker. If you like to bake cookies on a regular basis, then a place to cool those cookies is definitely needed. After you’ve removed your morsels from the cookie sheets, place them on a wire rack from Martha Stewart. The rack is compact, so it won’t take up a lot of space, but is large enough to hold a dozen or so cookies. The cookies can set and be ready to frost once they have been cooled all the way on a rack. You can also match your rack to your kitchen décor. Get a black wire rack from Calphalon that looks as good as it functions. This is a nice rack for cooling cookies, but it also works well for brownies, cupcakes and other treats that are hot out of the oven. For the more serious baker, you’ll need stacking racks. The Wilton stacking racks are convenient for cooling multiple treats at once. Each rack stacks neatly on top of the other, creating a three-tiered rack for cooling baked goods.
While shopping for a cooling rack, be sure to pick up some other cooking and baking items that will be needed. A good dessert should always come with a delicious dinner. Cook dinner for the family with new cooking pots that will help you create a memorable meal. Choose from stainless steel varieties or go with the stoneware versions. Plus, you’ll want your kitchen to look just as good as the food you are cooking in it. Don’t forget about great table runners, placemats and napkins to create an inviting space.
