Toothpicks are generally made of wood, plastic or metal and were originally used to remove food from your teeth after a meal. Now we use them for many other purposes. Toothpicks can be used for more than just picking hard to get food out of your teeth and checking if you muffins have been thoroughly cooked through or even used to pick up small appetizers. If you think outside the box you can actually discover toothpicks can be used for much more than that.
Try using a toothpick the next time you need to write lettering on your cake. By making tiny little imprints you’ll have the perfect tool to guide you so you can avoid some major mistakes.
Impress your family with your stellar cake decorating skills and they’ll wonder how you got your cake so on point.

If you need to transport your cake and you don’t have a proper cake carrier, there is no need to run to the store. You will most likely have everything on hand, all you need is plastic wrap and toothpicks.
Place the toothpicks sporadically on your cake and place the plastic wrap over top. The toothpicks prevent the plastic wrap from sticking to your icing all the while helping your cake from drying out. That is a catastrophe I want to avoid!
