Best Gifts: Baking Tools from Trudeau

 
I'm home from a fantastic girls getaway to Québec City (ooh la la, that was fun) and ready to keep the giveaways rolling! My 2015 Best Gifts for the Home Cook gift guide has some fun and useful ideas for those who love to be in the kitchen any time of year, and I am giving away every item on the list.

When I think of being in the kitchen at Christmas, the first thing that comes to mind is baking. It's a time when things like cinnamon, ginger, dried fruit, nuts and sprinkles are front and centre. At Christmas, I like to put a little extra effort into making treats for the kids to enjoy and to share with those around us. If there is any time of year to do some extra special baking, it's at Christmas.

Hot off my festive trip to Old Québec, I'm excited to be giving away some fun pâtisserie baking tools from Trudeau to get you trying some French treats in your own kitchen this holiday season. These tools will get you set up for making French macarons, madeleines and decorative chocolate garnishes. Then keep your holiday treat shop going with an adorable cake pops set and other tools. Who says Christmas baking has to be all about gingerbread? I'm planning to do some non-traditional holiday baking this year in addition to the usual stuff we love.

My favourite tool in this set is the cake lifter. I can't tell you how many times I have wished I had something like this when gingerly transferring a cake round from the baking rack to the cake stand. Now I can do that task more easily with this sturdy cake lifter. Love it.

Entering is easy! Scroll down to find out how to win this great giveaway of pâtisserie baking tools from Trudeau...

  1. My mom is from Taiwan and she often tells me about these delicious little egg cakes that she used to eat in her childhood. They were eggy, buttery, soft and sweet; they were also cooked in a pan similar to the madeline pan! It would be great to re create these cakes for my mom, as she hasn't eaten them for over 30 years. The madeline pan would come in very handy, just as all the other tools in the Trudeau baking tools set would for mine and my mom's love of cooking :) (my email is angela.chu703@gmail.com )

  8. For me it is the cake lifter because I've never found one that was sturdy and delicate enough at the same time and this one looks like it could do it! (Suzi)

  13. The madeleine pan, for sure - I can never allow myself to buy one (because there's always something else that I need more), so winning one would solve that problem.

  28. How could I not have known there is such a thing as a cake lifter?! I always ice on the platter and then try to clean up the excess icing around it-this seems much better. It sounds like this is THE one to have, so I'd love to win it! Thanks Amy!
