Good morning, dear friends!
It’s Tuesday and I figured it is time for some Kitchen 101 …… or to be exact little … Baking 101.
Thanks to the recent cupcakes …. cake pops ….. baby cakes craze that started with bloggers like Bakerella or Joy the Baker home baking is on the rise and becoming very popular not only with moms, but also with teenagers as well.
During the holidays I had the pleasure to share some of my time & expertise with group of teenagers from our local Boys & Girls Club ….. teaching them some basics of baking ….. decorating cake pops …. understanding recipes.
One of the first things I did before my first baking lesson was compile a list of Top 10 Essential Beginner Bakers Tools that won’t break anybody’s budget, but will give a great start for every beginning baker.
If you are a beginner baker and don’t know where to start this list will help you to get the essentials and allow you slowly build your baking collection within your budget and baking skills.
It really is like a little Baker’s Basic Kit ….. perfect as a housewarming gift for children moving out ….. wedding present ……
