Baking supplies for Valentine’s Day!
01: Heart shaped treats
Firstly, moulds are pretty fun and a little addictive. It’s like witnessing sudden magic once you’re ready to pop whatever it is you’re creating out of that silicone. This blush pink heart mould set is adorably sweet. It’s perfect for whipping up little heart mini cakes. One of our favourite ideas is heart shaped chocolate covered Oreos! Fill with pink candy melts or tempered Belgian chocolate, push an Oreo cookie into the centre and top with more melted chocolate. Set in your fridge for 15 – 20 minutes and carefully turn them out onto a clean surface. Then drizzle and sprinkle your decorations to your heart’s content!
02: Cookie time
Home made cookies are fun and cute to make. They’re also pretty fun to eat too of course! The best thing about good heart shaped cutters is that you can re-use them for birthdays, weddings or gifts! This set of 6 nesting heart cookie cutters comes in different sizes so you can bake everything from mini treats to large statement sweets!
03: Think pink
Sprinkles are always fun, but what about coloured sanding sugar for a little hint of sparkle? Add on top of cupcakes for a shimmering look or mix with other themed sprinkles for your own cool sprinkle mix! One super easy and quick decorating idea is to dip sugar cookies into chocolate then add your sanding sugar!
04: Utensil heaven
Extra spatulas are always handy in the kitchen. This cute set of three silicone spatulas in varying sizes are perfect for folding macaron batters, scraping buttercream out of the bowl and general baking fun!
05: Mix it up
How amazing are Mason Cash’s range of beautiful mixing bowls. We have a gorgeous French grey one, but this pale pink version is definitely on our wish list. We love the large hearts around the side too… which obviously means it’ll fit in this Valentine’s Day. These bowls are super sturdy and a great weight and size for making the perfect macarons!
This silicone mould was just too cute to leave out. Make mini bundt-style cakes that are rosebud shaped for your Valentine this year. Why not add some red velvet batter to each and bake before pouring with a sour cream glaze? These little beauties would also look sweet on top of a mini cake or nestled into a pretty gift box!
07: Edible confetti
We can’t get enough of sugar sprinkles, but when they’re as pretty and shimmery as these… we’re going to add them to everything! This type of sprinkle also looks amazing added to glasses of champagne. We’ve also been known to sprinkle the golden star version on top of festive cheese boards.
08: Cupcake cases galore
Themed cupcake cases are always an essential! For novice bakers they’re the perfect way to add a bit of colour or design quickly. We love LOVE these cute printed cupcake cases in various shades of pink. From tiny little hearts to fun stripes you’ll find the perfect Valentine print for your bakes.
This sweet rolling pin is actually for kids, BUT it’s too cute. It’s perfect for smaller work such as cupcake toppers, mini cookies or quick decorative elements for cakes! We’re also firm believers if your tools look nice then it won’t feel like work!
10: Pick the best
Adding toppers and picks is a super way to instantly transform a cupcake into something seasonally sweet! Obviously, a little glitter too never hurt anyone! These picks would look dazzling in freshly baked cupcakes swirled with pink buttercream.
