As long as you buy good quality baking items to create your masterpieces in the kitchen, it doesn’t matter how much you spend on the necessities. Just remember that there is a difference between items needed to cook and those needed to bake.
First and foremost are measuring devices. This includes bakeware items such as measuring cups, spoons, liquid measurement and a sifter for powdered ingredients needing to be measured out for your recipes. For any recipe that requires a hot item out of the oven, a wire cooling rack is essential.
It keeps countertops cool and provides a dedicated place for hot foods to cool down. A spice rack is a helpful and handy tool when you need to grab that last ingredient to finish up. Fresh spices are great, but just be sure to have special graters on hand to extract the amount you’ll need.
