Gift Ideas for Cupcake Lovers

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

Wondering what to get the cupcake lover on your holiday list?  I’ve got you covered. 

3 of 6 Gift Ideas

Quality Chocolate

Quality chocolate makes a huge difference in chocolate cupcakes and chocolate frosting, but it comes with a hefty price tag.  Because it is not something that the baker on your list might always splurge on, it makes for the perfect gift.

When a recipe calls for baking chocolate, I use my big block of bittersweet chocolate from Callebout.  A lump of chocolate is a much better present for someone who has been naughty than a lump of coal.  Be sure to throw a chocolate chopper in with the gift to make it easy for them to cut off the amount that they need (and make sure that the recipient has a kitchen scale as well).

Patric chocolate bars are my favorite bars to eat.  But, you can also melt them and use them in frosting.  If you have never tried single-origin chocolate, trust me and buy some for yourself, too. (If you want to gift another chocolate just for snacking, TCHO-A-DAY makes an incredible gift.  They’ll have superior quality mini chocolate bars every day for thirty days for just $19.99).

Askinosie cocoa powder is the cocoa powder that I use when I want a more complex chocolate flavor in my cupcakes.  Your cupcake baking friend probably has never heard of it and they will be very impressed with your gift giving prowess.

Why use a chocolate chip when you can use a chunk of high quality chocolate instead?  Scharffen Berger Chocolate Chunks are the ones to try.

Finally, it’s not chocolate, but don’t forget about the gift of vanilla.  A big jar of vanilla bean paste (see my post about vanilla bean paste if you have no idea what it is) makes a sweet gift!
