The Ultimate Baker's Gift Guide
The festive season is upon us, and with it comes the delightful yet sometimes daunting task of finding that perfect gift. If you've got a baking enthusiast in your life (or if you're the baker looking to treat yourself!), this hand-picked guide is tailored for you. Some of the links below are affiliate links – I'm sharing these because I genuinely love and trust them. So, let's dive into this world of sweet indulgence.
1. Essential Reads: 'Icing on the Cake' by Tessa Huff is a treasure trove for both novices and seasoned bakers. Gifted to me by my dear siblings, it has since been my baking bible. Every recipe is a winner, with Tessa's macaron recipe being the secret behind the delightful macarons I often showcase on social media.
2. Perfecting the Dough: Winning the State Fair in 2019 introduced me to the Pepe Nero set, and now, I can't imagine my kitchen without it. The adjustable rolling pin ensures uniform cookie and pie doughs every time. This bundle is comprehensive, featuring cookie cutters, non-stick silicone baking mats, a dough cutter, 7 decoration pens, and even a pizza roller. It’s a must-have!
3. Dress the Part: The elegant pink apron from Hedley & Bennett has caught my eye, and it's on my personal wishlist. The free embroidery option is a cherry on top, adding that personal touch. And if you're shopping for the little bakers, their adorable kids' aprons are too hard to resist. With their current Black Friday sale, it's a steal.
4. Effortless Decorating: A robust turntable is a game-changer. While I began my baking journey with a basic one from Wilton, I've since upgraded to an aluminum alloy cake turntable. Its seamless turn and impeccable quality make cake decorating a breeze.
5. Monthly Macaron Magic: For the macaron aficionados, my Macarons of the Month Club Gift Subscription is a sweet surprise. Opt for a 6-month or a 12-month subscription. And if you're thinking of gifting it to yourself, your secret's safe with me! Note: This exclusive offer is for local Ohio residents.
As you embark on your holiday shopping, remember that the sweetness isn't just in the treats but in the act of giving. Happy gifting and may your holidays be filled with joy and confection!
