If you are like me, baking is a big part of the holiday season. I like to give baked cookies/cakes as gifts for clients, family, and friends every year. To make sure I have all my ingredients, I created a baking supplies checklist (see below) to help me make sure all the staple items are on hand. This baking supplies list helped me, and I hope it helps you too.
The Ultimate Baking Supplies List
Variety of food colors
Flour (gluten-free or regular all-purpose or pastry flour or whole wheat or bread flour)
Light Brown Sugar/dark brown sugar
Sprinkles for cookies and cakes
Icing boxes or powder
Cream of Tartar
Here are some tips while you go through your baking supplies checklist:
Check the expiration dates if there are any of the containers. Make sure items do not smell stale or are hard to the touch. I like to get rid of these things since they usually change the taste of the baked item.
See if any item needs to be replaced and make a list.
Do you have enough of each item for your recipes? Go through each recipe and add up the quantities you need to the list.
Pull out your most used recipes and make a complete list of the ingredients necessary for those yearly recipes and use every year.
If possible, do this before the season to get the best deals if you need to repurchase baking supplies. Manufacturers tend to have coupons on these items and stores tend to run sales on these items in November and early December.
Let me know how it goes. Did the checklist help you manage your baking supplies? Did I forget an ingredient you use? Please leave a comment below. I would love to hear from you.
