#318 Elizabeth @ The Collegiate Baker: “My favorite baking tool is definitely my grandmother’s kitchen aid mixer. My mom mentioned that it was stored in the basement one day after I’d been blogging for about six months and I couldn’t believe she hadn’t told me about it before! I don’t know what I would do without it, though. :)”

Congratulations, Elizabeth! You will also be notified by email.

I’ll be back later today with another recipe!

Hello, my friends! Today’s a special day here on this little old blog. We’re talking fabulous gifts for bakers (and lovers of pretty things) and to make matters more exciting, one super-lucky reader will receive ALL of these goodies! Not one, or two, but all. Kind of awesome, right?

See, the thing is I love stuff. I love looking at pretty things, I love buying pretty things and I most definitely love giving pretty things–throughout the year and beyond. With the holidays just around the corner, it has me thinking even more gift-giving thoughts, so I figured I’d compile a bunch of my favourites–things that I currently own and adore.

Sweetapolita Loves: 

1. IceMilk Aprons: Aprons are always a hit with bakers, and I positively adore these. I own the monogrammed Frosty Tin Marshmallows style and have gifted several other styles to family. Embracing style, quality and tradition all with an heirloom theme, each apron is packaged in a preserves jar and comes with an apron story card, 3 blank recipe cards and signature heritage tag. These aprons are a truly special gift.

2. I Do Dishtowel: Lovely kitchen linens are always appreciated, but one adorned with confectionery dots and wedding cake? Yes, please.

3. Pom Pom Flower Treat Boxes: Don’t feel that you always have to gift treat boxes filled with treats (although that never disappoints)–pretty treat packaging itself is such a great way to inspire bakers, and is something some of us have a hard time buying ourselves. Besides, you never know–you just might see that treat-filled box back under the tree with your name on it.

4. Pink Stripe Cupcake Box: Again, I love getting and giving pretty packaging for gifts, inspiring the recipient to bake and create. Boxes like this make home bakers feel as though they’re running the sweetest shoppe in town.

5. Cupcake Measuring Spoons: I probably don’t need to explain why these made the list, but I have these and they make every measure that much sweeter. You can find these and at one of my favourite online shops, I’m With Cupcake. With everything from much-loved stripey paper party straws and balloons to milk bottles and pretty packaging, this shop just shouts happy. Sweetapolita readers receive 20% discount off $10+ orders when you enter the promo code “SWEETAPOLITA.”

6. Whisk Pendant/Charm: Where do I even begin? When my talented friend Sweet Paul discovered and shared these from Frances & Co Pendants awhile back, I bought one right away and haven’t taken it off since. The talented artisan, Frances, creates this irresistible whisk in both sterling silver and 18k gold-dipped options strung on an 18-inch box chain, and it simply makes the perfect baker’s gift. I cherish mine and have had everyone from postmen to passersby notice & compliment it.

♥ ♥ ♥

7. Yum Yum Ice Cream Serving Party Pack: If this adorable polka-dotted and striped ice cream serving ensemble from Sucre Shop doesn’t make your giftee twinkle, I’ll give up cake for a year. What better incentive to throw an ice cream party (and invite you) than the sweetest eco-friendly serving supplies all ready to go? Brooke Pratt, the celebrated artisan behind this array of stylish wooden utensils, creates the cutest party designs on everything from ice cream scoops to forks and can customize colours, images and sayings for any event.

8. Marshmallow Madness!: Dozens of Puffalicious Recipes: I really wasn’t kidding back in this post when I swore by this book. Shauna Sever gives readers the know-how and inspiration to create gourmet homemade marshmallows at home, and I have made them countless times. The recipes are simple, super-fun and delicious. Paired with the puffy pastel marshmallow medley of a cover, this book is total shelf candy.

9. Escali Arti Glass Kitchen Scale: With a rainbow of colours to choose from and state-of-the-art scale design at an affordable price, this scale will take home bakers to the next level and make them smile every time they use it. Throughout this blog I’ve expressed my feelings on how important it is to weigh your baking ingredients for best results, and now we can all do it in colourful style.

10. Pure Vanilla: Irresistible Recipes and Essential Techniques: Okay, the girl is on a roll. Shauna Sever‘s latest book, and likely the book that holds the record for most recipes I’ve ever made from a single book in a week, Pure Vanilla makes a gorgeous gift. With everything from Buttery Baked Vanilla Bean French Toast to Vanilla Lollipops, as well as endless information on vanilla itself, this book is anything but, well, vanilla.

11. Lite Bites Candle Forks: More awesomeness that I found on I’m With Cupcake. Sometimes quirky candles are all you need to make a classic cake a show-stopper, and I think these make the cutest gifts! Fun candles are another thing that bakers just don’t tend to buy themselves, or at least I seem to neglect them at times, and yet they can totally make the cake.

12. Ms. Food Face Plate: We have the boy version of this plate (you might remember this and this), but I’ve just bought this Ms. version for my cakelets for Christmas. Okay, so this isn’t really a baking-themed gift, but it sure makes life that much more fun. Kids, of course, adore this and every meal yields a different work of art, but sometimes big kids (like me) also love playing with their food.

13. Fete Origin iPhone Case: Last but so, so not least, the most gorgeous iPhone case I’ve seen in all of my existence. And it just so happens to be the one I chose for my newly upgraded iPhone a few weeks ago when I literally went through every one of the thousands of options on Society6. Designed by the super-talented Jacqueline Maldonado, this artsy case may not be a literal depiction of confection, but to me it’s the most delicious looking colour-combination and pattern ever (you can even find her incredible artwork on bedding, shower curtains and more). I may not use my iPhone to bake, but it’s always in arms’ reach providing the soundtrack to all of my baking adventures and ready for snapping Instagrams. With its sturdy impact-resistant and flexible hard plastic case, this is an all-around winner.

Speaking of Instagrams, even though these didn’t make the giveaway (would have been logistically tricky), I can’t leave out the awesomeness that is StickyGram–your Instagram photos printed as adorable square magnets. (Use my friend code FRIENDD5QH and get $2.00 off your first sheet!) Probably one of my personal favourite options for gifting. With free worldwide shipping and only $14.99/sheet of 9 magnets ($12.99 when you use my discount code) you honestly can’t go wrong. I ordered a bunch of these, and can’t wait to order more for holiday gifts. Perfect for grandparents, friends and more.

So onto this super-awesome giveaway of all my best-loved goodies!

    My favourite baking tool is my Maytag Gemini oven!! I can use both ovens for baking & it cuts my time in half!!! It’s awesome if you’re baking 2 separate things too because both ovens can be at different temperatures. I don’t know what I did without it!!

    My favourite tool has got to be my kitchenaid, because now I can easily make SMB! For non-powered options, I’d have to go with my frosting turntable. Goodness – I do hope I win this contest! If not, I am definitely picking up that turquoise scale because it is gorgeous!

    My favorite baking tool is my KitchenAid Mixer. I first used one in high school in the 80s. My Foods teacher was a HUGE fan of all they can do and she was right. When my husband and I assembled our bridal registry back in 1999 a KitchenAid mixer. I was very lucky. My sister, knowing it was the thing that I had most hoped to receive, surprised me with it at my bridal shower. I have used it constantly since. I’ve only recently had to replace the paddle attachment. I would not bake nearly as much if I did not have this tool.

  60. 61

    My favorite item is probably my Kitchen Aid mixer, but parchment paper is probably something I should at least mention because of its usefulness (especially with cookie baking!).

    My grandmothers old 8″ aluminum cake pans. These things are beat to s#*t and havent sat flat in years but I reach for them every time I make a cake.

    Parchment paper has been revolutionary for me – I absolutely love to bake, but hate to clean-up :)

    Baking is my therapy, and my Kitchen Aid mixer makes whipping up cakes, cookies and frostings much more enjoyable! My favorite frosting is 7 Minute Frosting (or marshmallow frosting), so all I have to do is add the ingredients to the bowl, set the speed and the Kitchen Aid does all the work. Perfect, glossy and smooth every time :) Someday I will have to get the pasta making attachment.

    This is going to sound odd, but my favorite baking tool is a collection of old, ragged strips of tea towels that I wrap around cake pans to help the sides of the cake cook at the same rate as the center. They are singed, threadbare, and wrinkled, but I swear by them and have used them for years.

    My favorite baking tool happens to be my measuring cups! I have a ton of them because I have to measure everything and I do not want to have to stop and wash something in the middle of baking. “Mise en place” is essential in my kitchen!

    My favorite baking tool is the Cookie Press handed down to me from my Mother when I was first started out living on my own. I grew up baking cookies with her any opportunity we could get. I LOVE it, not only do I feel I have more precision with the cookie but it is a very special tool that makes me smile. I grew up learning to bake cookies with it and now my son watches me use it and I am creating beautiful baking memories with him! Especially at Christmas….it is Christmas when the cookie press is out!!!

    My favorite kitchen tools are the ones that are inherited from family- a vintage bowl set with flowers, an old ice cream scoop, a marble rolling pin. I love that they’re vintage, have family meaning, and they often work better than some newer kitchen tool!

    I have this fabulous tin set that I store all my cookie cutters in and they are super cute.
    They have pastel rainbow colours on them – 2 with polka dots and 1 with stripes and they rind me of cupcake sprinkles- they are sooo lovely to look at!

    My favorite baking tool is a rolling pin I inherited from my great-grandmother (who inherited it from her mother in Italy) although I only get to use it on holidays, and it works like crap, its my favorite because it reminds me of my roots! :) Also, my cakelet niece is another one of my favorites. She’s only three, I’ve been training that little bugger to bake since she was born!

  191. 194

    My favorite baking tool is my icecream scoop! I have a mini one for cookies, and a bigger one for muffins/cupcakes. They always turn out the same size, and that is awesome!

    My favorite cooking tool would have to be my piping bags and my stand mixer! Making cakes and then making them beautiful makes the artist part of me grin. I also fancy my little pinch-o-salt bowls. No particular reason aside from them being tiny and cute.

    Rosie, this is a truly amazing collection of favourite things! My favourite baking tool is my stand mixer. It is not a Kitchen Aid (which I always, ALWAYS wanted), but it is a Hamilton Beach. The reason that I have a Hamilton Beach mixer, and not a Kitchen Aid, is that my incredibly practical husband wanted to surprise me with my very first mixer, and proceeded to go online and do his research. After much comparing and reading, he was convinced that the Hamilton Beach stand mixer was more bang for the buck. He then hid it in my baking cupboard, knowing that I would be beginning my Christmas baking, and would find it there as an early Christmas present. I have used my mixer EVERY week since getting it. I love it, but would not be against upgrading to a turquoise Kitchen Aid at any time. ;)

  222. 226

    Whoa, this is actually amazing. Well, my favourite baking tool has to be my grandma’s rolling pin that got passed down to me. It’s so old but it still works great! Weighs a ton though! My mother always tells me stories about the food and desserts that my grandma used to make back in Sri Lanka, and even a story about how she used it to chase away a robber! Just lots of good memories and it never fails me. Totally priceless. :)

  287. 291

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your website, Rosie!! Just a glance at the colors make me happy. :-)

    I have only been baking for a year, but I have gone cake-crazy! So many tools are essential, but my favorite “helpers” (wouldn’t want to call them tools) are my taste testers, aka my hubby and 2 girls. They are my bigger cheerleaders, but they also give honest feedback. They are the best! Can I pick another essential? My collection of cookbooks and my notebook. Have been studying them (work harder than at school) and taking lots of notes. Still learning! Hopefully to add to my favorite list very very soon – Costco has the KitchenAid stand mixer on sale – it’s on my Christmas list!

    My kitchen aid mixer is my best and most used kitchen tool – I use it even when I don’t have to just because I like it so much!!!

    Paula C. Jarrett says:

    I love my one piece set of measuring spoons! It’s sounds kind of weird but it has four different measuring spoons on one piece and it designed in the shape of a cross so none of the four spoons ever touch the others. It’s quick, convenient and keeps it all neat without having to mess around with them clanking against one another! I tell everyone about how great they are!

    My best loved baking tool has got to be my Kitchen Aid stand mixer! I would be absolutely lost without it. I’m an aspiring 17 year old baker, and the mixer is my grandmother’s that was given to me as a gift. Without it I wouldn’t be able to make half the recipes I find here (: and I wouldn’t have a college essay!!

    I have to agree with lots of commenters about the love I have for my KitchenAid stand mixer, but my absolute favorite baking tool is my big red mixing bowl that I picked up for a super bargain at HomeGoods. That bowl has been the cornerstone of prep for countless batches of snickerdoodles, brownies, pumpkin muffins, and chocolate cupcakes. LOVE my big red bowl! :)

    Andriea McGaw says:

    Hello Rosie,I love your recipes and website and frequent it for ideas and inspiration often. My best loved item that I can not bake with out comes with a history:)

    I inherited my late and beloved grandmother’s five cup handle crank flour sifter. This sifted belonged to her mother’s mother. I come from a long line of household bakers and cooks and this very old and very wise crank sifter is my partner in the kitchen. Every time I use it, my savory and sweets come out to perfection. I really do believe I would be lost with out it. Every time I use it I feel like my past generations are guiding me through a recipe. That to me pospers me and warms my heart.Especially, when I hear my grandmother’s guidance ring through. Thanks for reading, Chele.

  421. 434

    This may sound silly,but I like my spoonulas. It is can scrape, stir and transfer. Great to use with melting chocolate, it can take the heat.

    Thanks again for being such an inspiration. Your giveaway is way better than any of Oprah’s favorite things :).

    Dianna Hostettler says:

    My best loved cooking tool is one that I no longer have, though at the time I never thought I would miss it. It was a small blue teacup that I used as my measuring cup during a year-long college exchange in Germany. Finding only metric measurers in stores, I turned to the origin of the measurement “cup” and raided our cabinets. This small teacup was what I thought was closest in volume to a standard American cup. Was I right? I have no clue, but that cup did allow me to introduce my new international friends to my favorite american treats like banana bread, pancakes, and even cakes and pies.

  495. 509

    Wow, the cutest stuff ever!!! My most loved baking items are not pretty but it’s my 11 x 17 jellroll pans!!

  496. 510

    So sad this isn’t open internationally :( I LOVE all of these things!! I must go purchase them myself ;)

  497. 511

    My best-loved baking item is a set of old measuring spoons handed down from my mom! I have a new set and I would rather wash these ones in the middle of baking than use the new ones.

    Hi Sweetapolita!

    I love your blog and I also love my mixer. Its not a KitchenAid (though I would love to have one!) or a Kenwood but when I first got into the baking craze I remember bringing the mixer home for the first time and opening it! Unpacking the wire whisk and the beaters and the splash guard (though I had no idea what is was) and reading the manual. I was so happy and so excited for the baking adventures that would follow. I have made many recipes from you blog and all turned out perfect.

    Joanna

  512. 526

    My rubber spatula! I use it for almost everything and love it!

  513. 527

    I think my fav would have to be my pastry cutter – it has delivered lots of love through great pie crusts. :)

  514. 528

    It might have to be a spatula. I love my mixer and other fancy tools, but before I had that, I had a nice spoonula spatula from my parents that I still love. It has helped make many a good batter!

    Loved?

    My mom’s Pyrex/Fire King measuring cups from when mom taught me to bake with when I was little and still use today. Also my aunt’s handed-down jadeite mixing bowl with handle/spout. All come from and add love to everything I bake. Lastly, my vintage rubbermaid spoonula. It’s a pre-heat resistance model so it’s good and bendy. Don’t know what I’ll do when it dies. Sorry, couldn’t pick just one!

  519. 533

    My favorite baking items are my jadeite nesting mixing bowls. When the biggest one fell off my counter and shattered, I cried!

    Marie-Maude Laurence says:

    What’s your best-loved baking tool/item?
    That’s a tough one! I bake mainly muffins/cupcakes, and I love my silicon moulds. I have different shapes, and have just purchased Christmas tree, star and gingerbread man shapes for the holiday season! Can’t wait to try them. My children love cookie cutters as I have so many and they get to choose what they want.

  522. 536

    I would have to say, my whisk…
    Mine is the one that came with my hand mixer, so it doesn’t actually have a handle, just a metal stick (so it can be pushed up into the body of the mixer)…
    It’s perfect though…just the right size. I use it all the time.

  523. 537

    I love good stirring spoons. thanks!

  524. 538

    It’s gotta be a three-way tie between my stand mixer, my Silpat mats, and my 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop. (My OCD side loves taking a tray of perfectly round and equal-sized cookies out of the oven!)

    My true best loved baking tool is a sentimental one- a yellow glazed ceramic bowl that belonged to my Grammy. She was my biggest fan and #1 taste tester, and when I use her bowl, I feel like she is back in the kitchen with me. That aside, I’m very attached to my kitchen aid stand mixer as well as my kitchen scale, which absolutely changed my baking forever! Love it!

    Thank you for sharing a collection of your favorites, Rosie- just getting a peak makes me feel like a winner… imagine how happy I’d be if these items were actually my holiday presents this season! A girl can dream :)

  581. 595

    In all honestly I love so many of my baking items and find them all indisposable, but I feel like I became a real baker when I started piping my cupcakes with those huge cupcake tips. They made the most beautiful end result which boosted my confidence to try more things.

  582. 596

    my favorite tool is my kitchen aid, I would never make anything if I didn’t have it.

    My rubber spatula. I don’t know how I lived before it. I have a favorite red one with a clear handle. I use it for baking anything and everything, and even use it while cooking.

  597. 612

    My whisk is my fave!

  598. 613

    My Kitchen Aid mixer. I don’t know how I baked anything before I got it.

  599. 614

    I guess the obvious answer is my KitchenAid Mixer…but I also really love fancy cupcake papers! I pick up packages of interesting/beautiful/quirky and holiday themed cupcake papers whenever I see them.

  607. 622

    My crock pot! With being a full time student and taking care of our house hold making a hot dinner every night is almost impossible due to late classes. So a couple of times a week I break out the crock pot for a tasty supper. I have also figured our how to roast chickens and make bread in it!

  626. 641

    My best loved baking tool is my Kitchenaid stand mixer!

  627. 642

    My favourite tool is probably my bench scraper. Along with my small off-set spatula. How could I choose just one? :-)

    I liked your Facebook page. But I really love it. No button for that though.

  629. 644

    And of course I shared the contest on Facebook. I hope I’m the lucky winner or maybe one of my friends…

  630. 645

    I have to say, my best-loved baking tool is my pastry cutter. I have such strong associations with my mother and grandmother using theirs to make perfect biscuits, scones, and pie crusts—every time I use mine I want to call them up! It’s the perfect vintage-style kitchen tool, since there is no better modern version. I adore my kitchen-aid, as many have said, but there is something about that little steel half-moon that just does it for me.

  631. 646

    I love my kitchenaid mixer!

    What a great giveaway!

    My best-loved kitchen tool would probably be my Barefoot Contessa spatula. It is just so pretty (and still looks brand new after 4 years of use, probably because I baby it so much) that I can’t help grabbing it for nearly every task! Using pretty stuff makes baking just that much more fun :)

  640. 655

    My favorite things are all of my cupcake supplies! I have quite the collection started of papers and sprinkles.

  642. 657

    My absolutely most loved baking tool is a set of palette knives that were my grandma’s. She was the person who taught me how to bake as a child and I cherish those memories immensely. She has her initials carved into each of the knives and when I use them it makes me feel her presence and transports my time as a kid ;)

    My non-skid mixing bowls are right up there at the top, but I have to go with the old standby – my Kitchenaid mixer! Even if it is making weird noises on the lower two mixing speeds…

  649. 664

    My favorite baking tool = a toss up between my Blendtec blender or my husband’s wooden spoons. We travel a lot so my blender is my mixer, processer, juicer, milk maker plus more! :) My spoons were hand me downs from my husband’s single days and I love em’!

  650. 665

  652. 667

    The tools I use the most are a balloon whisk and a heat-resistant spatula, but my favorite is probably a piping bag/tip.

  653. 668

    My best loved baking tool… is my favourite Jessie Steele apron and oven mitt! It’s a beautiful apron with cupcakes on it… as soon as I put it on, I’m in the baking state of mind (and don’t have to worry about batter spilling all over me!) I also liked Sweetapolita on Facebook.

    Amazing giveaway! My favourite baking tool is my kitchenaid stand mixer, but that’s not a unique answer, so I’m going to tell you about my second favourite tool, which is my little white silicone spatula! Many people have vast collections of spatulas in all sizes and shapes and colours, but I have only one, and he (yes, it’s a he) is all I need. He’s made out of one solid piece of silicone, so I never have to worry about the handle breaking off, even when dealing with a particularly stubborn batch of cookie dough. I heart you, spatula!

    My best loved baking tool is a set of three white nesting bowls my sister gave me 17 years ago. They are super heavy, I have no idea what they’re made out of. But they are indestructible. I’ve dropped them all several times and not a single chip (although maybe bruised toes). I use them every time I bake and can’t imagine kitchen life without them.

  692. 707

    Hooray for my KitchenAid! Not only is it a workhorse, its sunny yellow color makes me happy every time I look at it!

  693. 708

    Can’t pick between my two Kitchen Aid Mixers or my collection of Le Creuset silicone spatulas.

    It’s hard to pick one favorite baking tool, but I guess I’d pick my food processor. I’m super proud of it because I picked it up for ten dollars, perfect condition, at a yard sale… and it does so many things for me! From cutting cold butter into pate sucree or scone dough, to grinding up dry cake to make crumbs, I love it!

    Oh. My. Goodness. Allllll the goodies! Im so excited!! LOL!
    My favorite kitchen tool changes with my mood I think… one week it will my kitchen aid, and I will be mixing and whipping like crazy and the next it will be my grandmothers rolling pin that just feels right in my hands… lately its been the vintage biscuit/donut cutter my hubby bought me! I had always used a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass before!

    My best loved baking tool is my mixer. It was my mom’s and it’s a 30+ year old chrome Phillips beauty. It reminds me of Saturday mornings spent with her in the kitchen.

  777. 792

    Well my most useful is just a plain white spatula, but my favorite is a chicken-shaped cooking timer!

    Woo-hoo! My favorite equipment is my stand mixer, I can’t imagine making meringue buttercreams and marshmallows without it!

  784. 799

    My favorite baking tool is parchment paper. I’ve only started to use it recently and I can believe I was missing out for so many years.

  785. 800

    My favourite baking tool has to be my grandmother’s bundt pan for sentimental reasons. It’s beat up and dented in one spot when it fell to the ground but I remember the many chocolate marble cakes that came out of it fondly.

  786. 801

    I have already like your page on Facebook :)

  787. 802

    I have a very special hammered metal set of measuring spoons that a dear friend gave me for my birthday several years ago. I feel fancy when I use them (which is often) and I think of her. She’s a fantastic cook (she leaves the baking to me), but I think I would have to share some of this booty if I win!

  788. 803

    My favorite and essential baking tool/equipment is my kitchen-aid. It has helped me with many baking creations.

  789. 804

    I have to say my kitchen aid.

  790. 805

    My favourite baking item are my books…they are one of the most useful things when it comes to finding the perfect recipe for each occasion.
    And if it has to be a thing that you actually use for baking, it’d be my cutters, they just make everything more fun and I can use them for baking cookies and making fondant shapes

  791. 806

    My kitchen aid mixer. And pan spray with the flour right in it is a close second!

  792. 807

    I “like” you on Facebook.

    I absolutely would be lost without my Kitchen Aid mixer! My mom and step dad gave me a Classic white one for Christmas a few years ago and it has only fueled my love of all things baking! I use it for SMB (a WONDERFUL discovery, thanks Rosie!), cookies, cakes, pies and one of my favorites: ice cream! I love the Ice Cream Maker attachment. I even used it to make my homemade laundry soap! Someday I hope to save up and buy a larger one in a pretty color.

    My best-loved baking tool/item is my KitchenAid stand mixer. I would be lost without it and would never have been able to make cream cheese frosting of piping consistency without it!
