I just started teaching myself how to bake from scratch last year. The first holiday season my fiance and I spent in our own home, I set my mind to baking several batches of Christmas cookies. While not perfect by any means, they were a respectable first attempt, and an experience that sparked such fervor in me.
In just the last year, I found passion and excitement in baking; it is a cathartic experience for me. That seems to be a common thread in people who bake. Baking is not just a hobby, but it quickly becomes a deep part of someone.
If there is a baker in your life, you know very well that baking is a hobby of many, many accessories. Here are some fantastic baking accessories that would make great holiday gifts for the avid baker in your life.
1. Victorian Rose Skirted Cake Stand ($17.50)
Every baker wants to make their creations look just as good as they taste, and everyone should have at least one great cake stand. This fine porcelain skirted cake stand from Gracie China by Coastline Imports is gorgeous! It fits an 8-inch round cake and has raised rose and cut-out detailing.
2. “Sally’s Baking Addiction” Cookbook ($15.81)
From the popular foodie blog by the same name, Sally McKenney has released a cookbook that looks every bit as amazing as what she has been dishing up on her blog (I’m a fan.)
The Sally’s Baking Addiction Cookbook is fully illustrated and offers 75 scrumptious recipes for indulging your sweet tooth — including a chapter of healthier dessert options for those who follow a vegan or gluten-free lifestyle. With dozens of simple, easy-to-follow recipes, you get all of the sweet with none of the fuss!
3. Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin ($20)
This innovative rolling pin takes the guesswork out of preparing biscuit dough, pizza bases, pie tops, lasagna sheets, and filo pastry. It comes with four sets of removable discs that raise the rolling surface by different amounts, to create exactly the required pastry thickness — either 2mm, 4mm, 6mm, or 10mm.
This ingenious device also ensures that pastry or dough is rolled to an even thickness throughout and to the exact size required, via measurements on the surface of the rolling pin.
4. A Year of Cookie Cutters ($14.95)
All the cookie cutters you’ll need to celebrate the sweetness of the seasons, all year long. The fun mix of shapes include a cookie for each month: sunshine, watermelon, heart, clover, umbrella, snowflake, leaf, star, pumpkin, apple, tree, and flower, all packaged in a charming penny candy jar.
5. Silpat Baking Mat ($24.99)
The original non-stick baking mat; this reinforced, silicone rubber mat makes any baking sheet non-stick replacing the need for parchment paper. Mat can be used 3,000 times and is easy to clean.
6. GIR Ultimate Silicone Spatula ($22.50)
GIR (which stands for Get It Right) was founded in January 2012 with a mission to apply intelligent design to everyday products and experiences. They began with the spatula and have applied their innovative ideas to make one of the best damn spatulas ever.
7. Owl Cookie Jar ($39.95)
One of my favorite places to get home decor is Pier 1 Imports. Just like what they portray in their commercials, I always find a thing (or 7) that speak to me. Like this cookie jar — a hand-painted ceramic owl that can watch over the sweets day and night, seeing just who can resist temptation. Who?
8. Joseph Joseph Nest 7 Plus ($32)
Nest is the ultimate collection of practical, space-saving kitchenware comprising a unique range of food preparation sets. It includes 5 measuring cups, a small non-slip mixing bowl with measurements, and a medium non-slip mixing bowl.
9. Wilton 6 Cavity Doughnut Pan ($9.99)
Feast on your favorite morning pick-me-up right in the comfort of your home with this durable, non-stick solution to making masterpiece doughnuts in minutes. The healthier and tastier alternative to fried doughnuts, baked doughnuts are quick and easy to create and clean up is fast with this dishwasher-safe pan.
