Christmas Gifts for the Baker (Slideshow)

Give them what they really need with advice from the experts
Salter Digital Scale
When it comes to baking, precision is key. "We've been baking by weight, not by cup/spoon measure lately, seeking recipes that measure in volume. Baking becomes way more precise this way, and cakes come out perfectly."

Chef Stand and Stylus
Anything you do in the kitchen is bound to be messy. But when baking, your hands are covered in flour, pieces of dough have inevitably splattered, and your kids are probably painting the floor with frosting. This stand and stylus will certainly help you keep your tablet clean as you move through your recipe.

Silicone Pastry Mat
