Gift Ideas For An Aspiring Baker

Gift Ideas For An Aspiring Baker

Baking is one of my favourite things to do.  My Mom taught me to bake and I, in turn, taught my children to bake.  Some of my fondest memories were baking with my children.   If you have a person in your life that loves to bake and you want to give them some items to get them started OR if you know someone about to move out on their own and they need to set up a bakers kitchen, I have done two lists:  One for beginners or those just setting up a kitchen.  One for intermediate bakers or those who already have the basics.

Baking Basics:  

  • Measuring Cups and spoons
  • Baking Pans
  • Hand Mixer or Stand Mixer
  • Whisk
  • Rolling Pin
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Wooden Spoons
  • Apron
  • Oven Mitts
  • Cooling Rack
  • Containers for keeping or freezing
  • Parchment Paper
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Turner/Flipper


Intermediate Baking Items:

  • Bench scraper
  • Butane Kitchen Torch
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Stainless Steel Scoop
  • Pastry Brush
  • Piping Bags and Tips
  • Removable Bottom Tart Pan
  • Pastry Blender
  • Sifter


I hope these two lists give you some great gift ideas for the developing bakers in your life.
