I cant’ believe its over a year since I wrote my last blog post!! That time has literally ran away from me in a blink of an eye and its all down to you, my clients who have kept me so busy this year with cake orders. I couldn’t be happier with how 2017 has gone for me and JensCoutureCakes and I’m so excited to see what 2018 brings. I also can’t believe its only 8 more sleeps until CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!! It’s my favourite time of year and also usually my busiest time of year with chocolate biscuit puddings, fruit cakes, etc., but as I said on my Snapchat the other day (if you don’t already follow me my snapchat user name is jenscouturecake, come say hi) this year I’ve decided to take a break from all the madness and spend more time with my little family. With that in mind, its Christmas time which also means buying gifts for your nearest and dearest and I’ve been asked a lot lately what would I recommend as gifts for women who love to bake and love all things cake. So, it got me thinking, which led me to googling and I’ve found some last minute gifts for the caker in your life that will be here just in time for Xmas.
- The Kenwood Multitone Mixer and Food Processor
I actually cant believe the price of this! Holy Sh*t its such a bargain with the 2in1 mixer and food processor everyone could use one of these in their kitchen. At the amazing price of only €195 (was €325) its a steal! The Kenwood is a favourite among all cakers for being one of the best and most durable mixers on the market. A friend of mine has had one on her family for over 20 years with there never being any problems with it. So its safe to say its a cakers Designer piece as an Investment. You can get yours online from Debenhams here.
2) Cath Kidston Christmas Apron
Cath Kidston is a firm favourite among cakers for her beautiful designs festive and floral you’ll be sure to find something for everyone. Of course with it being the time of year a Christmas apron would seem appropriate for the Christmas seasonal baker but for the all year round cakers like myself maybe a more neutral design would be better suited. However, tis the season and all that so here is a beautiful Christmas apron I’ve found designed by the one and only Cath herself. They can be found in Kildare Village, Littlewoods and of course Cath’s website itself which you can click on here. Lots of them are up to half price in the Sale at the moment so even if its not a gift for someone else, whats the harm in buying one for yourself?!?!?!!?
3) Mary Berry Baking Bible Recipe Book
Every baker needs a good recipe book starting off and who better to start with than Mary Berry herself! Being the star baker that she is, Mary is part of The Great British Bake off, a highly respected British baker with over 75 cookery books in her career so far and her book The Baking Bible released in 2009 is perfect for bakers anew and also us more experienced cakers. A perfect gift for the star baker in your life for sure!! You can find them in any Eason’s store for just €36.40 or buy online here.
I hope this gave you some ideas worth looking at and helps you in your search for a gift for the baker/caker in your life!
For now, I’m off to bed to watch some Netflix and chill before a hectic week ahead of Christmas shopping and catching up on housework- the joys!!!
