| baking essentials, contests/giveaways

Across the web today, 19 of my food blogger friends and I have put together collections of our favorite baking, cookie, cupcake, and kitchen essentials and TWO giveaways to go with them!

Cupcake Baking Essentials & Two Giveaways!  | JavaCupcake.com

First, on each blog… you’ll have a chance to win some of that bloggers favorite items.  Once you’ve entered their giveaway… you’ll look for a CLUE that will allow you entry to win a Kitchen Aid Pro Stand Mixer!!   Once you collect all 20 clues, you’ll use the phrase you collected to enter to win the KitchenAid Pro Stand Mixer!

So, grab your coffee and dig in… cause this is going to be FUN!  

Let’s begin with my Cupcake Baking Essentials…

These are just a handful of the tools I use every time I’m in the kitchen to bake a batch of cupcakes.  They range from what I wear to keep me clean to what I bake my cupcakes in!  They are all essentials to my success!

Cupcake Baking Essentials & Two Giveaways!  | JavaCupcake.com
  1. 1.  Boojiboo Apron – I own three of these apron and I absolutely LOVE them.  Not only are they cute, but they keep  me clean while baking and cooking.  I use my apron every time I am in the kitchen.
  2. 2.  Wilton Cupcake Pan – I know there are a lot of cupcake pans out there to choose from, but I really like the 12-cup pan from Wilton.  It’s sturdy, inexpensive and does the job well.  No need to spend an arm and a leg on a fancy cupcake pan… this one from Wilton is a winner!
  3. 3.  Martha Stewart Silicone Spatula –  I have half a dozen spatulas in my kitchen, but this red silicone spatula from Martha Stewart is one I go to time and time again.  I love that the handle and the are connected and that it’s super sturdy.  It scrapes well and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a good spatula.
  4. 4. German Wire Whisks – I’ve tried many whisks over the years from metal to silicone… but none of them compare to the wire whisks I found at the Tedi € Store here in Germany.   Not only are they very inexpensive, but they work incredibly well.  I bought several of them and won’t use anything else from now on!
  5. 5. German Cupcake Corer – This was another find at the Tedi € Store.  At only €0.50, this cupcake corer was a real deal!  It works perfectly to get out the centers of cupcakes for filling… and at this price, I can afford to have several!
  6. 6.  German Mixing Bowls – When I bake there’s usually a need for more than just the bowl of the mixer.  These mixing and prep bowls come in handy when I need to sift flour or mix other ingredients before adding them to my mixing bowl.  They’re also great for one-bowl batters and doughs.  I also found these at the Tedi € Store!
  7. 7.  Wilton Disposable Piping Bags – I always pipe the frosting onto my cupcakes and every time, I use a disposable bag.   There’s just something about being able to toss it out when I’m finished with that make these bags so convenient.  They’re a must-have for cupcake making.
  8. 8.  Sweets & Treats Boutique Paper Straws – One of the most easy ways to make your cupcakes adorable is to put a topper on it.  I use these straws to make signs, banners, toppers for my cupcakes.    They come in all kinds of patterns and colors.
  9. 9.  Sweets & Treats Boutique Grease Proof Cupcake Liners – Hands down, these are my most favorite cupcake liners.  Not only do they look incredibly cute on my cupcakes, but they hold their color and pattern… no matter what kind of cake I bake in them.  My good friend, Shannon Harvey of Sweets & Treats Boutique keeps me fully stocked with her liners… which is a good thing, cause I’ll never go back to grocery store liners!

    Favorite or must have baking took would be my mixer… which is dying, which is why I need a new one. Also, you can never have one too many spatulas! And the possibilities are endless as to what I’d make with a new mixer. First might be my fave cakes: Italian Cream and Humming Bird, and then I’d like to make some pasta. Def in need of all of these wonderful things!

    Well…I don’t do anything without my kitchenaid! My favorite baking tool, though, would have to be a Viennese spatula. These spatulas are amazing for mixing icing colors, scraping bowls, and folding ingredients into your batter. I own 10 of them, so I can use them with each icing color I make when decorating. I LOVE THESE!!!!!!

    I don’t bake a whole lot of cupcakes so my favorite tool would be my cupcake pan. :) I don’t have anything fancy.

    I don’t think I’ll ever do cupcakes or muffins without my big 2T ice-cream scooper thing from Pampered Chef. Perfect amount of batter in each one, each time! LOVE IT! The 1T scoop is perfect for mini-muffins/cakes, too.
