I’ll never forget how giddy I was when my sister splurged on a sparkling white KitchenAid stand mixer for me, or the day I was gifted my very first piping bag and set of decorating tips. Because I’m one of those people who can’t stop baking (and pawning treats off on coworkers), and I can never have too many tools in my kitchen. If you know someone who’s constantly making cupcakes and quick breads to share, you can bet they’re itching for better bakeware and gadgets to try, too.

One gorgeous cake stand

When the baking's done, you've got to share a pic of your creation, so a stand as beautiful as the baked good is a must. Target has an array of Instagram-worthy ones for cheap. Go modern with a copper metal base, stick to vintage-inspired teal porcelain, or grab both! #foodstylinggoals

A mini bundt pan

A fluted tube pan is a staple in any cake-maker’s cabinet, but mini Bundts are next-level cute. With so many different pans out there—from holiday- to Game of Thrones-themed—a baker can only justify buying so many. That's why a shape that's not too over-the-top (like this one) is always a welcome addition. (Here are 9 easy recipes you can make in a Bundt pan that aren't cake.)
