My Turntable Alternative

Turntables are wonderful.  I use mine every time I make a cake.  In fact, using a turntable greatly improved my frosting application.  If you go looking for a cake turntable, you will find that they can be rather expensive.  You can purchase a small turntable for about $11.00.  Well, that's not very expensive, but in this price range they are pretty flimsy.  I wouldn't want to put a heavy three tiers or more on one of these.  Then the price jumps to $55 and up.  I'm sure that in the $55 and up range they are very sturdy and should last a long time.  I just didn't want to spend that much for a sturdy turntable.  This is my solution.



I found this wooden lazy Susan that I just love.  It is very sturdy.  That thick wooden surface isn't going anywhere, even with a heavy cake on top.


I put a layer of the squishy shelf liner on it to keep the cake plate or board from sliding around.  Works great!  The shelf liner also works great when you are transporting a cake.  It keeps your cake from sliding around in the vehicle.  The best part about this lazy Susan is that it cost less than $10!  Yes, that's right, I'm a bargain shopper.

A. Poet liked my bargain shopping as well and was inspired to write a new poem for the poetry corner.  Hope you enjoy it.

Happy Caking!

  1. This is an awesome idea given how much money one can save. I have also seen a turntable used for cake decorating and can verify that it works quite well!

  2. A perfect solution and easy to keep clean and food safe. I have been using a plastic one designed for a cabinet shelf but will be switching to wood for the next cake. (I have some that we used to use under small TVs.)
