The December Lust List

The festive season is finally here! My Christmas tree is up, cards have been written (and sent to both local streets and foreign lands), and most importantly of all, I have made a decent start on my present shopping - finally! I've already been enjoying festive treats such as mulled wine, mince pies, Baileys hot chocolate, and a gingerbread house. Here are some baking goodies I would love to find under my Christmas tree...

KitchenAid Artisan Grape Food Mixer
Harts of Stur £409.00
My absolute dream gift! And in purple my favourite colour. I am not ashamed to admit I actually stroked one of these on display in Selfridges. I will have one of these beauties one day, it would make my baking life a lot easier. Especially mixing batters and buttercream.

Star Swirly Cupcake Stand
Lakeland £3.99
Lakeland have got some great products for baking. This cupcake stand would be perfect for displaying your festive bakes, and could be used again at other occasions like birthdays. Plus, it's a bargain!

Giant Snowy Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter
Cakes, Cookies & Crafts £4.99
I recently discovered this website and purchased this cookie cutter (along with several other items!) It's 8 inches tall so great for giant Christmas tree cookies!

Chocolate In The Post
The Grown Up Chocolate Company from £25.95
This company sends you a selection of quality award-winning chocolate in the post for as many months as you desire! Yes please Santa!

Spherical Cake Tin / Christmas Pudding Mould
Richmond Cookshop £15.50
I've never seen anything like this before, they look like they're from space! These moulds will help you achieve a perfect spherical shape to cakes and puddings. What a stunning effect this would give, everyone will be wondering how you did it!


  1. Loving the Kitchen Aid, how beautiful x

  2. Great list Kat, and I might be a bit greedy as I'm lucky to have a KitchenAid (although it's nearly 10 years old now), but I'd love that purple one too! :)

  3. I'm lucky enough to have a KitchenAid but even so, I have licked some of the models in John Lewis. Didnt want to shop there again anyway!!

  4. Sarah you crack me up! So jealous of you KitchenAid owning people!

  5. I have also stroked a few kitchen aid machines ,and I would not care what colour it was !!
