This broom style Cake Tester has been a staple of Shaker and Amish communities for decades. Handmade in the US by the Shaker communities of Maine, it truly blends form and function. Simply pluck one of its straws, place it into the top of the cake to test for doneness. If the straw comes out clean, the cake is ready to be removed from the oven. The tester adds functional decoration to your kitchen and its charming appearance makes it a great gift.
