Our Holiday Baking Essentials

Baking season is upon us, and we’re sharing our favorite tools and supplies for holiday treats and goodies.

The kitchen is the heart of the home… 

and more so during the holidays than any other time of the year. We have entered BAKING SEASON and we are here for it! In preparation for all the cookies and carbs we will be baking (and consuming), we are making sure that we have all the practical and pretty tools and supplies on hand. Now is the time to stock up on cheery sprinkles, replace your mismatched measuring spoons, and even invest in a timeless KitchenAidFrom the basics, like a set of great wooden spoons, to the fun extras, here is everything we’re stocking up on this year!

Anything but basic bakeware 

Anytime form meets function, we are fans. Case in point: bakeware. Whether it’s a gorgeous loaf baker, or a whole new set of cookie sheets and muffin tins, we love to elevate our baking with pieces that look as nice as they function. Who didn’t at least attempt mastering their bread baking skills during quarantine? This set from Williams Sonoma even includes a bread hook, and we’re wondering how we ever lived without one before.

Elevated serveware 

So many Christmas memories are made baking with our loved ones and sharing meals and desserts with guests. Well-chosen serveware essentials can really take your baked goods to the next level when you’re hosting. A batch of pastries thoughtfully arranged in this cloche look as drool worthy as they taste. The dotted bowl is begging for an assortment of holiday treats, and there is something so fun and festive about the ball detail – reminds us of snow.

Gadgets and gizmos 

The real heavy hitters of the baker’s arsenal are the tools. Not only are we making sure we grab the candy thermometer we seem to forget every year, but we are also stocking up on Silpat cookie sheet liners and measuring cups. And what’s a holiday baker’s kit without cookie cutters? These Nordic stamps make for a unique, festal take on the traditional sugar cookie.

Sprinkles and more 

Half the fun of baking this time of year is the specialty food items. If baking from scratch isn’t your idea of fun, gingerbread sets are always a festive touch and a hit with the littles. These sprinkles are so merry, and if you haven’t tried this vanilla, now is the time – it absolutely elevates the flavor of any recipe you use it in!

Cleanup, but make it Christmas-y

There is nothing cozier than a home filled with the scent of baked goods, especially during the holidays. While the kitchen fills with the smells of cinnamon and warm bread, you’ll find cleanup just as much of a treat with these supplies. This countertop spray smells like Christmas in a bottle. Not only is this dish scrubber functional and lovely, but it would make a sweet gift when paired with dish soap and an apron.

Gifting all the goodies 

So, maybe your eyes were bigger than your stomach, and you have more than enough treats to share! We love to bake with friends and family in mind and keep boxes on hand for gifting. The McGee & Co. baker’s bundle would make an excellent gift to a loved one, neighbor, or the baker in your life. For packaging up the seasonal goodies, we love to add a personal touch with some twine and a gift tag. Happy baking!
