Christmas Ideas for that Special Baker in your life.

Everyone loves a gift!

  I love Christmas, and I love the thought of being with family, sort of. And by sort of I mean, the family is good, the having to clean the house,not so good.  Just so you understand, family =good, cleaning =bad.

 So to make up for the cleaning I do, or at least plan to do, I think Santa better bring his A game for me this year.  And I bet you all know someone like me, who would live off of cupcakes and cookies if they could.  Or you are one of those people and you need ideas on how to show off and share your love of all things sugar? Either way here is a list of a few things I love and have!

  First off, I want to share with you my all time favorite thing.  And it is going to be my main focus, because I seriously want more of these.

My custom chocolate and pink cupcake.

  See that is a thing of beauty, it is jewelry and it is a cupcake. How can you beat that?  I found this wonderful seller on Etsy.    The Glass Chef, is Peggy, she is amazing!  I saw her stuff and drooled and drooled for a few weeks.  Then I thought about it and figured for the price how could I not treat myself?  So I did not see the exact cupcake I wanted, but I contacted Peggy and she made me my very own personal cupcake.  And it was perfect! Just what I asked for. 

 I just wanted to add, that Peggy was so amazing that when I asked if I could just buy the charm, since I had like a million chains she said of coarse.  So they were even more affordable.  Seriously I love these.

Then a little while later I decided I needed another one.  This time I found one I loved and within days had it:) 

This one is very summery to me.

  I wear them all the time and I always get compliments on them.  I mean  they are adorable, well made and I enjoy letting people know where I got them.  Peggy also makes a whole bunch of other adorable things


I love how detailed this is.

Perfect for the teacher in your life.

Come on, that is just cute!

  I mean seriously, how cute!!!

 So if you think you need your own, or know someone that would love this go check out her shop.  And if you don't see what you want, let Peggy know, she is wonderful and will make you something you will love.

  Now a few other things that I have and love are:

  These super cute measuring spoons, from I'm with cupcake.  I don't have the cups that match yet.  ( Hint Hint Hubby!)

  I just got this at Michael's with my 50% off coupon.  It is a trimmer for your icing sheets, but you can use it for fondant or sugar past you roll out thinly.  No more cutting those images out by hand for me!

  I have this adorable apron, from Cupcake Provocateur. Warning, This site is sort of a pin up inspired site, so not too safe for work, maybe.  Just to be on the safe side.  Not bad, but look at home,  there are a bunch of adorable aprons, so worth a look.

  I have a pair of these custom converse.  In the cupcake pattern of coarse.  They do not ship to Canada, so you have to find someone in the states to help you out, like I did.  I love them and people comment on them all the time.

  I love tiny cupcake stands, I have a few, but these ones are great.  The price is very affordable and they come in all different styles and colours.  I could use some more, just sayin.....

  I also have this belt.  It was my gift to me before I lost weight.  I was so big it was about 6 inches from the two ends even touching.  Now it is almost too big, but I wear it almost every time I wear jeans.

  I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my favorite things.  And maybe even gotten some ideas for last minute gifts.  I am now off into cyberspace to find more things I will have to have.

 Also I was not asked to post any of these items, or payed or compensated in any way. I just really like the items.
