Valentine gifts for bakers!
01: Novelty sprinkles!
Seriously, it doesn’t matter if you or your loved one is a novice baker or pretty advanced sprinkles will always be a quick and cute way to add instant colour and design to home bakes. These utterly adorable mini sprinkles are teeny tiny hearts that look a little quirkier than the normal full sized ones. They’re perfect to top dainty macarons with, add to generously swirled cupcakes or even use as details on iced cookies (the pink ones would make great button noses on animal figures).
02: Heart shaped silicone mixing spoon!
Sometimes a fun novelty themed mixing spoon or spatula can help bring a smile to someone’s face. We’re pretty sure this one may do just that. Plus, it’s available in a gorgeous powder blue and even more lovely pistachio green shade as well as soft pink. It’s perfect for mixing colour or flavouring into cake batter or even silky buttercream, adding chocolate chips or fudge pieces to cookie dough and spooning cupcake mix into cases.
03: Vintage style cake stand!
Who can resist this gorgeous vintage style glass cake stand? Not only does it feature a glass base that reminds us of antique perfume bottles, but it comes with a matching dome to help protect those homemade cakes in the most stylish of ways! You could assemble tempting cupcakes, easy macarons and freshly baked cookies underneath the glass dome too for a rustic yet glam bakery look.
04: Ceramic heart shaped measuring spoons!
Measuring spoons are pretty essential when it comes to baking and even cooking. Dolling out the right amounts of cinnamon, vanilla or allspice can obviously be even more fun and chic with this subtle novelty set of ceramic spoons. Nestle these in a gold gift box with heart shaped sprinkles, a handy cookie recipe book and some Valentine’s themed Hershey’s Kisses for a truly sweet gift!
05: Retro red kitchen scales!
We have these scales (in cream) and they’re used pretty regularly. Design-wise they’re just the right amount of vintage chic and practical prowess. We’ve also had these scales for some time and they look and work just like the day we bought them! The fun retro red is sure to brighten up any kitchen too.
06: Heart cookie cutter set!
Good heart shaped cookie cutters not only make cute Valentine themed gifts, but they’re an essential for any baker! You’re sweetheart can whip up heart shaped cookies, lovely fondant cupcake decorations or use to indent designs into sugar paste work. For a really sweet idea tie up the cutters with a big bow and pop into a Valentine gift bag filled with the perfect ingredients for cookie baking (especially these Valentine themed M&Ms!).
07: Valentine cupcake cases
Cupcakes are always a classic sweet to whip up in the kitchen and for years now they just seem to get more and more popular. Why not treat your Valentine to these gorgeous love themed cupcake cases? Featuring heart prints and vibrant pinks and reads they’d help make the most stunning cupcakes.
08: Macarons, Madelines & More Class!
This class is fabulous. We signed up for this video lesson on Craftsy some time ago. Even though we’ve been making macarons for years now we even picked up a few extra helpful tips and explanations on how to mix them perfectly and even niggly reasons why they can sometimes fail. It’s a great class for both beginners and advanced bakers plus your Valentine can chat to the instructor whilst watching, pause it when it’s time to shoot off to work or even check out how other students are doing!
09: Fun cupcake mug!
Of course every baker needs a break or two during a hard day’s work! This amazing cupcake shaped mug is perfect for your Valentine to enjoy a hot cup of tea mid-baking session or even get their morning coffee fix before work! We love this design because of the cute red heart on top, but there’s several different colours and styles for you to choose from too.
10: Heart Shaped Truffle Mould!
Last but not least here’s a fun heart shaped truffle mould for you or your Valentine to whip up deliciously tempting chocolates! Simply melt tempered chocolate, fill the moulds and leave to set. If you’re feeling ambitious you can fill each with salted caramel or fruity raspberry centres!
