'Tis the season for Christmas cookies, pumpkin pies, and oh so many more delicious baked goods! 'Tis also the season for giving - so, inspired by Macy's holiday gift guide for the kitchen - we've put together some of our favorite must-have items for the budding or experienced baker...
While I generally prefer the type of cooking where items aren't really measured and you can whip things together with whatever you have in the fridge, this year I've gotten a bit more into baking thanks to the blog, which means I actually have quite a few of these items on my own wishlist!
1. bundt pan // 2. kitchenaid mixer // 3. rolling pin // 4. measuring spoons // 5. pyrex measuring cup // 6. melamine mixing bowls // 7. cooling rack // 8. spatula // 9. apron // 10. dessert decorator set
After all, who wouldn't want a KitchenAid Mixer under the tree? (The hardest part is picking a color!) or some new little baking tools in their stocking? These are also wonderful gifts for the host or hostess! I like to add something fun - like a cookie cutter and tea towel - to useful items like these and package them together for a thoughtful (and useful!) gift.
