Baking Essentials

Baking is an enjoyable and rewarding hobby for many, but it can be intimidating to take on if you don't have the necessary tools. That's where baking essentials come in. Having the right supplies can make all the difference in your baking endeavors, from measuring cups and spoons to mixing bowls and baking sheets. But it's not just about having the basics - investing in a few high-quality tools like a food processor or a kitchen scale can take your baking to the next level.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, make sure you have all the baking essentials on hand to create delicious treats for yourself and your loved ones.


USA Pan Cookie Sheet


Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to upgrade mom's baking sheets and get rid of the ones she's been using since you were a child. Not only do older pans have a higher risk of containing toxic chemicals, they also don't bake as evenly as updated baking sheets do!

We love our USA Pans because their unique fluted design allows air to flow beneath your baked goods which will allow for more even baking and maximizes pan strength to help resist warping. These pans are available in a few different sizes, but we recommend starting with a couple of half sheets, which should fit perfectly in most standard ovens!


Silpat Half Sheet Baking Mat


Keep mom's new baking sheets bright and beautiful by pairing them with a Silpat baking mat. Silpat is the original silicone baking mat, made from a dedicated silicone with reinforced fibreglass mesh. Nothing sticks to Silpat which means mom will spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying her baked creations.


Pastry Cutter

Combining pastry dough is so much easier with a good quality pastry blender. It is perfect for mixing ingredients and tackling tasks that require more muscle, like blending thicker batters and heavier doughs. The sturdy, flat blades quickly cut in firmer ingredients, like butter, shortening, and cream cheese, breaking them into smaller pieces while blending wet and dry ingredients evenly throughout the dough for a better taste and consistency. Your mom will thank you every time she uses her pastry blender to make a pie crust or pizza dough!


Novelty Cake Pans and Decorating Supplies

If your mom loves to wow her party guests, a deliciously unique cake pan is the perfect gift for her! From intricate designs reminiscent of flowers to fun shapes like diamonds and swirls, the options are endless when it comes to creating a cake that's truly one-of-a-kind.

And with an array of decorating supplies like edible glitter, sprinkles, and food coloring, she can transform her creation into a masterpiece. Whether she's a professional pastry chef or a novice baker, novelty cake pans and decorating supplies are a must-have for any kitchen.


Nordic Ware Bundt Pan
