Best Gifts for Bakers
These are the baking tools I use every day and love.
1. French Rolling Pin
I got a French rolling pin last year for Christmas and I LOVE it! It makes rolling out all kinds of dough really comfortable and easy. Rub a little flour on it and it doesn’t stick at all. Easy to clean up with a little water.

2. Marble Pastry Slab
I’ve been using my marble pastry slab for a couple years now, after getting one from my husband for Christmas. I don’t know what I’d do without it! The marble keeps the butter in my pastry cold when I’m rolling it out. Plus, it’s beautiful.

3. Silpat Half-sheet Baking Mat
This is another gift that I love and don’t know what I’d do without. It fits my USA half-sheet baking pan perfectly and my cookies always turn out and never stick. It’s good to start with a standard half-sheet, as most people have a half-sheet baking pan, but Silpat has mats in all kinds of sizes, including quarter sheet, petite jelly roll, and toaster oven size.
Check out this Silpat half-sheet baking mat.
4. USA Pan Half-Sheet Baking Pan
My favorite baking pans, hands down! They don’t warp, they clean up well, and are a perfect friend for Silpat baking mats. I’ve got both the half-sheet and the quarter-sheet pan. I now want all the USA pans!

5. Cooling Rack
Useful and inexpensive. Perfect when paired with a USA pan and Silpat mat!

6. Batter Bowl
You can’t go wrong with a good batter bowl! I have a couple like this and use them all the time. The non-slip handle and bottom are super helpful when stirring or using a hand mixer.

7. Measuring Cups & Spoons
I’m almost embarrassed to tell you that I went years using a really old set of plastic measuring cups and spoons. I never liked them and they didn’t feel good in my hands. When I finally invested in a nice set of stainless steel measuring cups and spoons I was so happy! Why did I wait so long to get a nice set?! The other thing I like about this set is that it comes with more precise measurements, e.g., 2/3 cup, 3/4 cup, 1/8 teaspoon, etc. That makes measuring ingredients a lot easier and quicker.

8. KitchenAid Stand Mixer
When my husband and I got married I was in grad school and we lived in a little 2-bedroom townhouse with a tiny galley kitchen. I told him that as soon as we bought a house I was going to invest in a KitchenAid mixer. Seven years later we moved to a new state and bought a house with a bigger kitchen. And I went out and bought my beautiful white KitchenAid stand mixer. Eleven years later it’s still my favorite kitchen tool and best investment.

9. Kitchen Scale
This kitchen scale is a fairly recent – and much welcomed – addition to my kitchen. It’s so inexpensive and now I wonder why I didn’t get one sooner?!

13. Ice Cream & Cookie Scoop
I used to use the 2-spoon method for placing cookie dough on my cookie sheet…until I got an ice cream and cookie scoop. So much easier! And I like that I can now get all of my cookies the same size.

16. Recipe Journal
I keep a baking journal and not only is it a fun way to record memories, it’s also super useful. I always think I’ll remember how a recipe turned out or how I changed it and I almost never do. Recipe journal to the rescue!

Which gift ideas for bakers are your favorite?
I am so thrilled to finally have my German Bienenstich cake recipe after 30+ years since I lived there! I’m still tormented by the Amazing German foods. I miss brotchen so much. But I definitely miss the cakes much more! I’m so thrilled to finally have the recipe. I’m going to make it in the morning. I’m definitely going to be a loyal follower of your baked good recipes. Thank you so much for doing this for us all! I’m so excited I can’t wait to see it!! Thanks and God bless you. Sincerely, Carolyn Greco
Previously from Untergruppenbach, Germany. 1984-1988! God I miss Germany! What a wonderful beautiful life I had there. I’m ready to go back any time! Meine Hertz ist duetcheslander. Veil danke.
I’m so glad you have the Bienenstich recipe now, Carolyn! It was definitely my favorite cake from when I lived in Stuttgart (and it looks like you were in the same area, too). I’ve already told my husband that he’s going to try the real thing when we’re in Stuttgart this summer. 🙂 I’ve been learning how to make Brötchen and will post the recipe and tutorial soon – they’re surprisingly easy to make. Thanks for being part of the IDB community!
