Amish Cake Tester Broom


From the website:

    Amish Cake Tester Broom

    Handmade by Amish artisans in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, these authentic corn-husk straws are used to test the readiness of a cake.

    Hang the straws near the oven, break one off and insert it into the center of your cake.

    If it comes out clean, your cake is done.

    Straws are disposable.

    2"L x 2"W x 5.5"H.

    Poem included.



$6.99 (cake not included).

Use an instant-read thermometer, it needs to be about 200 degrees F.

I guess it is nice to support the Amish but a pack of bamboo skewers does the job just as well.
