I appologize if this has been covered in another thread and I missed it. I have a good friend who's passion is cupcakes. She has all the standard tools, or at least what I assume are standard(stand mixer, pans, icing bags, etc etc) Help me find something cool and new to get her for Christmas I need both some bigger ticket $100-$250 gift ideas and some stocking stuffers.
Thank you all in advance for your input.
I wouldn't get any tools, because you never know what she might already have. I always suggest, when people come into the store to purchase for baking enthusiasts, stuff like sprinkles, paper cases, sugar lay-ons, etc - things that are always needed. You can get a nice basket and make it up really cool with a bunch of different things that she might need/want.
Stocking stuffers? Boyajian brand natural flavoured oils and extracts. Lemon, lime, orange, almond, rum, raspberrry, mint. EXTREMELY GOOD and addictive...Sold many places online for a better price than chains like Whole Foods.
I would suggest extracts as well! Maybe some decorative things like sprinkles, sugar pearls, liners, etc. Last year my mother in law got me a gift card for a local grocery store so I could stock up on powdered sugar, butter, etc. It was nice to get something like that rather than *another* rubber spatula ;)
They have a book called "Hello Cupcakes "all about cupcakes and all kind of different ways to decorate cupcakes. You might ask her first if she has ever seen that book in a round about way to make sure she doesn't already have it. I saw one in the store and took a quick look at it and it was pretty neat. Other than that, what the others suggest is very good. I have also seen the cupcake toppers in the store.They have a variety of them. Making up a big basket of stuff to do with cupcakes would be a neat gift!!! I am sure others will give you more ideas!!!
Hi, I really like the texture top sheets designed for cupcakes and cookies. I purchased several designs from Tomsann Cake Art Supplies and she truley lowered my shipping cost when I purchased more than one. She also carries a large variety of sprinkles, sugar pearls, edible glitter, LorAnn flavoring oils, etc. for decorating and flavoring cupcakes.
