Does anyone know if there is a counter top oven that allows you to bake cakes? My roommate is considering buying the Cricut Cake Machine, which would allow her to decorate cakes.

The problem is that we can’t reach our oven (not an accessible kitchen) we use our toaster oven regularly but I don’t think you can bake a cake in them because the elements are too close to the rack. Anyone have any thoughts on the subject? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

  1. You can bake a cake in a toaster oven, but it may take a few tries to figure out the right time/heat combo. I used to bake muffin bread in mine in a loaf pan. I would set it for… I dunno, 350 (the recipe called for 425 I think) and then just bake it longer.

    Good luck!

  2. Have u and your roommate got a microwave you people can use and is it accessible for all of u ? Do u also have a hand grabber ?

    Best of luck to ya’ll

  3. Hey Laura,

    I have a Bravetti convection toaster oven with rotisserie unit. I use it all the time but I have not used it to bake cakes. I am sure you could bake a cake in it. I cook rotisserie chicken at temperature 375 for 1 hour. Here is the link to the Bravetti convection toaster oven with rotisserie (this is a newer model then what I have): http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/8/KitchenBath/2/Appliances/ToasterOvens/PRDOVR~0430856P/Bravetti+6-slice+Convection+Toaster+Oven.jsp?locale=en

  5. If possible, I would like to discuss doing a guest blog on your site. I am a 38 year old female wheelchair bound with Spina Bifida. I have no doubt we would have similar viewpoints, but I would love to try out the blog thing before trying to start one of my own. If that is possible, please contact me through facebook, or I can send you my email address. Love what you are doing, and I hope you are a huge success through your site.
