Baking Gifts

I thought I'd do a post on some of the baking bits that I got over Christmas and my birthday. It's all very well to be cooking away and creating beautiful dishes, but having beautiful things to present your creations makes everything seem more special, never mind looking good yourself in a cute new apron!! Here's what I've received:
 My Mother got me the December edition of Love Baking magazine, which came with Christmas-themed cake topped and wraps and a cake stand. I think I might hang on to them until next Christmas seeing as we're past 12th Night, but they are seriously cute!
 I adore these cupcake cases from Meri-Meri! They were a birthday gift from one of my oldest friends, along with a pair of vintage-y knot earrings.
I have been looking at the Meri-Meri website, and I want to buy everything!!! I especially love the practical, yet pretty cake boxes.

 I think this is possibly my favorite: a floral apron bought for me by my Grandma from Sledmere House Christmas market. I'm trying to find the name of the company, who make lots of gorgeous things including all of our gift labels this Christmas. As soon as I do, I'll let you know!
Not exactly baking related, but too cute not to mention. This was bought for me by my mum on my birthday. We nipped into BHS to buy a birthday gift for my Tammy-obsessed little cousin and spotted this little hanger. It was from the kids' section and is too delicate to hang much more than necklaces and trinkets, but I love it! At £3.00 (Reduced from £10.00) it was a great bargain. It is also the first thing bought for my new bedroom, as fingers crossed we should be moving house in a few weeks.
I also got an apron with dozens of measures and conversions on for cooking, which is such a good idea.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2013 has started well! xxx


  1. Hiya! I'm nearly sure your apron is Cath Kidston - Almost all my things come from here <3 http://www.cathkidston.co.uk/default.aspx

  2. Hi Kate! Thanks for your help! Not sure if it is, as I got the sense all the products were handmade by the stall-holder. What is your favorite Cath Kidston product? I adore the sailing print on my pencil case, which will sadly need replacing soon as it is covered in pen leaks!! x
