Product Description

Using the same techniques and materials he uses to tie larger brooms, Peter Werner of Black Mountain, NC hand-crafts this cake tester.  It can be used as a decorative or functional item.  To use: break off one of the stiff bristles off the broom, and use as you would a toothpick!

Hundreds of sticks of broom corn are gathered, tied, and covered with a straw handle, which Peter weaves in various designs.

Hardy nylon hanging loop to keep the cake tester handy in your kitchen!

Approx. 8 1/2" long.
