20 Must Have Kitchen Items for Every Baker!

When we first started out in the baking business, Priscilla had been baking her whole life, but Michael...he'd never baked before...ever. So, there was a bit of a learning curve. You can read a little more about our story here, but this post is for you!

It doesn't matter if you've been baking for years or if you're just getting started. We've all gotta start somewhere, right? Some people say they're decent cooks, but baking is a whole other story. Baking requires precision. It's all about getting the perfect amount of this and the right measure of that. There's nothing worse than diving into any project without the right tools. Baking is no exception. We figured, between Priscilla's lifetime of experience and Michael's quick learning, we'd share some of the tools we've learned along the way that just make life easier for every baker. And yes, in case you're wondering, we've definitely learned some of these lessons the hard way, like when Michael overfilled the cupcake cups and spilled batter all over the oven. *Hint - ice cream scoops are lifesavers (and oven savers!) for this!*  

So, without further ado, here's what we've learned about the 20 must have kitchen items for every baker...from beginner to pro. Don't worry, we thought this through for you. It's no accident that we're posting this in time for holiday shopping. If you're looking for what to buy for the baker in your life, look no further. Or maybe you are the baker, we've got your back! Just share this post! We've included links to each item, so you know right where to buy them. We've also listed them by price, from stocking stuffer worthy to Dear Santa, please leave it under the tree!
