Nifty Nicky's thoughts on Christmas gifts for bakers...
Baking is fun and relaxing for me and I'm always amazed how you can make something so wonderful out of practically nothing. Some people find baking to be frustrating and stressful.
That's usually because they don't have the right tools, don't know the nifty baking techniques, or their baking supplies aren't organized where they can easily find what they need.
Nifty Nicky believes the first step in becoming a fabulous baker and developing a love for baking is to organize the kitchen so things to help accomplish that are wonderful Christmas gifts for bakers.
Spice racks and shelves or turntables for flavorings, food colorings and such are essential. Also, utensils such as spatulas, spoons, measuring spoons and measuring cups need to be organized. These can be arranged in a drawer with a divided tray or put on a peg board on the wall where they are easy to get to.
Stackable or 'nesting' mixing bowls and baking pans are good Christmas gifts for bakers and are easy to keep organized. Of course, serving platters, covered cake plates and pie plates a fabulous Christmas gifts for bakers.
