Last weekend I popped to Ikea to take a look at some of the new things they had in for Christmas. I usually get a lot of my decorations there as for the last few years I’ve had a red and white theme. While I was there I picked up a few baking bits. Like last year I’m planning a few christmas baking posts over the next few weeks and these things will be perfect to display them.
Firstly I picked up these lovely cake and loaf cases, I love that they’re square and will be perfect for some little christmas muffins and the larger one will look lovely with a spiced loaf. They have a really pretty metallic finish, and will look super festive filled with yummy treats this Christmas. These cost £3.
I also picked up some more pretty cake cases, again in keeping with my red and white christmas theme. These are slightly shallower than traditional paper cake cases and come in two sizes. These will look adorable for christmas themed cupcakes and treats. These cost £1.75
Last year me and rob attempted out first ginger bread house. We didn’t use any kind of cutter or kit and although we had loads of fun and lot’s of laughs making it, it’s appearance certainly left something to be desired. So this year when we give it another try I’ll be using this handy set of cutters to hopefully create the perfect iced christmas cottage. I recently picked up some new vintage recipes which included a ginger bread recipe, so I’ll definitely be sharing that on the blog very soon. This set cost £5.
I also bought a cookie cutter wheel, which features 4 shapes and should make cookie cutting a doddle. I have a few different biscuit recipes planned and would also like to make some salt dough decorations with the girls so this will definitely go to good use. This cost £2.75
Lastly I got a couple of glass plates to display my baked creations on, at the moment I’m using one of them to display some Christmas scented candles with I picked up in Primark. The plates cost £1.50 each.
