Gift Ideas for Bakers


The holidays are fast approaching, and since my book is all about baking, I thought I’d share some gift ideas for bakers, just in case any of you are looking for some last minute ideas.

  • Fun muffin/cupcake liners
  • Sprinkles! (You can never have too many sprinkles)
  • Bulk candy for decorating (M&Ms, M&M Minis, candy eyeballs, silver dragees, jelly beans, and Starburst minis are the most versatile – and yummy!)
  • Piping bags (disposable or reusable)
  • Piping tips: the most basic ones are a small round tip (#3-5), a large round tip (#12), a medium star tip (#21), or cupcake-frosting tips like the extra-large star tip (1M) or large flower tip (2D)
  •  A set of gel food coloring
  •  A small offset spatula (my favourite for flat-icing!)
  • Wire cooling rack
  • Apron (there are so many options available, fun ones, geeky ones, classic ones. Some places will even personalize them with your own photo/design!)
  • Oven mitts (I find the silicon ones work best. In fact, my absolute favourite is a small, purple, pig-shaped one that’s perfect for grabbing hot pans from the oven!)
  •  Cake mixes (if your beginning baker prefers decorating to actually baking)
  • Fun with Frosting (sorry, couldn’t resist a little shameless self-promotion! :D)

Happy Shopping!
