Any tips for a couple of nice gift ideas? She has plenty of recipe books but I wondered if there wer any handy little cake making gadgets that would be popular?

Lakeland stock some great Bake-Off items as well as lots of fun baking accessories. A good piping set, cool shaped biscuit cutters or a funky timer might be good.

Lakeland are usually good at this time of year for stocking fillers - its not baking but last year I got my dd a porridge mug - which she loves and uses most mornings to make her porridge....

www.notonthehighstreet.com are ace - things like personalised wooden spoons and rolling pins etc.

Another vote for Lakeland, or Ocado have some nice little things also.

If you could squeeze in one more little cook book the Bero flour book is fab, cheap, and filled with loads of tasty old time treats.

For real cheap and cheerful stocking fillers it’s worth looking at the Jane Asher range in Poundland. They stock loads of “foodsafe” (cannot be called edible for legal reasons) glitter for example.

My nan bought me some nifty icing gadgets last year - a tin with different nozzles, a dual colour icing set, and an embossed rolling pin. She also got me a cupcake corer which is quite good.

Unusual shape biscuit cutters.

If she hasn’t got a piping bag and nozzles set then that’s a no brainer.

I have seen a few mugs around with ‘star baker’ on them.

I bought a personalised wooden spoon from, I think, Not On The High Street.
Fancy cupcake cakes.
Silicone cupcake moulds.

A wire cake slicer for making nice even layers in cakes and taking the top off of domed cakes.
Cookie cutters, cookie stamps are cool. A bottle of Good quality vanilla extract (that stuff is bloody expensive!!) A rolling pin with removable thickness guides 🤔 hmm what else would I like 😆

Fancy flavourings or essences like orange blossom or proper vanilla.

Also a silicone spoon, spatula and a thermometer.

SchoolNightWine Wed 01-Nov-17 22:51:51

This thermometer from Lakeland is fab http://www.lakeland.co.uk/16004/Thermospatula-Silicone-Spatula-%26-Thermometer
Also good food colours are worth the money http://www.lakeland.co.uk/17519/8-Wilton®-Icing-Colours

ShoeJunkie Thu 02-Nov-17 07:42:03

CarrotVan Thu 02-Nov-17 11:07:22

Another recommendation for Poundland baking stuff

Also flavour injector, paper cases, personalised cookie stamps

CarrotVan Thu 02-Nov-17 11:08:10

Nielsen Massey extracts are really good

ArcheryAnnie Thu 02-Nov-17 11:20:26

Biscuit cutters! You can get some really fantastic ones. Lobsters, planes, spiders, all sorts.
