Here's a quick round up of what I thought were the best gifts and ideas from the Lakeland Christmas press show.

Cute ideas for Christmassy cake pops

And to make those cake pops, a special tin!

This must be my favourite thing I saw at the show, cookie cutters in the shape of tree ornaments

Christmas cake idea, & to flavour the cake, Lakeland sell a large range of different flavoured extracts - I just wish they sold a coconut one!

For the breadmaker, liking the look of the proving baskets

I thought this sounded interesting - fruity, sweet, 'toast' made to compliment cheese

Lakeland IMG_7823 R
Yes, that is a maple leaf shaped jar - full of pure Vermont maple syrup!

Copper tri-ply pans, great for even heat distribution

Into baking all things mini-sized? There's silicone bakeware to do it properly!

Before you know it, summer will be here again.  Zoku Quick Pop Maker was the big hit this year

Extremely sharp Edgeware graters - yes, got one given to me and it... is... SHARP (but grates beautifully!)

Chocolate & chilli? You know the answer to that! ;)

Lakeland IMG_7851 R
Yes! You can make soft cheese at home!!

I love Lakeland its one of the shops I'd love to do a trolley dash around :)

Ah Lakeland, I could (and do...) spend so much money there. It'd be worth getting in touch with them about a coconut flavoured extract - they're good at taking customer suggestions on board and I'm sure you're not the only coconut lover who'd buy it. I sort of wish there was a maple one as maple syrup seems to get lost in baking.

This is the best beginning to the holiday season Nic. So much creativity and so much fun baking. Tabasco & Chili? Why does that remind me of you? Beautiful share my friend! Hugs!
