Do you love to cook? I certainly don’t fall into that category, but I have plenty of friends (and a husband) who do! See below for some gift ideas for the aspiring gourmet in your life, or for those who are trying to learn!
Happy Birthday Cake Mold ($30)
To simplify the birthday cake process, skip the frosting and use this mold for both ease in prep work and a delightful display of birthday celebration. (Can be used in the oven or microwave!)
Professional Cake Leveler ($60)
If a fancier cake is what you’re after, this might be useful. Who hasn’t tried to split a cake only to have the layers end up uneven giving you a cake that’s sliding to one side?
Egg Fry Rings ($8 for set of 2)
Finger Spoons ($10 for set of 4)
Don’t act like you don’t dip your finger in the frosting, Nutella, peanut butter, or whatever your vice is. Make it a little more sanitary with these finger spoons.
Decorating Pen ($10)
For the prettiest cookies and cakes at the party, grab this decorating pen and get creative!
Sugar Shack Cookbook ($39.99)
This book was voted the top cookbook IN THE WORLD. I mean, THE WORLD. Oddly enough, it’s dedicated to maple syrup.
Clover Bloom Honey ($3.25 -$40)
Now, I wouldn’t be a good daughter if I championed a cookbook on maple syrup (which we NEVER had in my house growing up) and didn’t mention the WORLD’S GREATEST HONEY. (I’m not biased at all!) While you can’t buy online, you can come to Minco to buy! (Plus, the 23rd Annual Honey Fest is Saturday, December 7!)
Molecular Gastronomy Kit ($60)
Finally a chance to play with your food! Turn your kitchen into a food laboratory with this kit. Transform liquids into jelly-like cubes, turn melted chocolate into spaghetti-like strands, and more! Sounds like a great dinner party or fun evening with the kids!
Foodie Flash Cards ($10)
Whether you’re looking to impress your friends or just learn the lingo, these flash cards will either make you the queen of culinary conversation, or the obnoxious know-it-all (whatever you’re going for). Each card displays a culinary term on the front, along with its definition, an illustration, and a (sometimes hilarious) example sentence on the back.
Customized Food Bars ($2.99 each)
This may be one of the coolest things I’ve seen lately. You can create your own custom food bars! Start with your core (chewy, crispy, oaty, etc.), add fruit, nuts, sweeteners and even a boost if you want (fiber, immunity, etc.). Name your bar and order! They even provide the nutritional facts as you add your ingredients. So cool!
Are you hungry yet? Which item are you adding to your wish list? I’m thinking that molecular gastronomy kit sounds pretty awesome! Check back Monday for another list!
