Do you consider dinner to be a mere means to dessert? Or perhaps you just enjoy whipping up tasty treats so others can satisfy their own sweet tooths? Whatever your reason for loving to bake, the right tools can help the home chef get the job done faster. Let's count down five of our favorite kitchen accessories designed to make baking a breeze.

1. A Batter Bowl

While working with batter can be a messy task, the right batter bowl eliminates drips and spills. The two quart tempered glass Anchor Hocking Batter Bowl is roomy enough for larger batches and has both a spout and handle for easy pouring.

Perfect for any mixing task, this batter bowl also offers a smart time-saving and storage solution if you're making and preparing batter and other wet and dry ingredients in advance.

2. A Springform Pan

Trying to remove a cake from a baking pan without breaking it can be one of the home chef's most unpleasant experiences. Ideal for any cake or baked goods recipe, springform pans offer an appealing alternative. Instead of inverting the cake and hoping it will come out in one unbroken, uncracked piece, simply unbuckle the latch and remove the cake without so much as a wiggle or shake. You can even serve your cake directly from the pan's base!

3. Cupcake Decorating Supplies

Cupcakes continue to reign the baking world, but not just any old cupcakes will do. The Cuisipro Cupcake Corer and Decorating Set can help you take your cupcake creativity to all new levels. A corer lets you easily fill the center of the cupcake with icing or another filling choice, while the spatula and squeeze bottles make icing and decorating easier than ever. Just how effective is this innovative cupcake corer? It's patent-pending!

4. Measuring Cups

These durable devices feature an innovative oval design and long handles just right for scooping. They're durable, and both stovetop- and dishwasher-safe. Not to mention that when storage space is at a premium, this neat, nested design has a tidy footprint whether hung or stored in a drawer or hung.
