Welcome to the letter B in the A to Z Challenge for 2018.
You may not think of baking when you think of Arts and Crafts but Michaels has quite a baking section. Wilton is one of our main product lines.
Remember those muffin tins I talked about yesterday? Here they are along with cake pans and cookie trays.
There are all kinds of cake decorating supplies like different tips for applying frosting, decorative cake holders and the containers to carry the finished cake so it doesn’t get wrecked.
If fondant is your thing you can find all different colors. The big boxes of fondant are unbelievably heavy! Aren’t they pretty?
There are color coordinated tools galore for measuring and stirring. There is parchment paper and special molds that you can use for making candy decorations or even shaped ice cubes.
Here are the candies you can melt and pour in the molds. Side note, my husband used to handle the packaging on similar candies when he worked for Guittard Chocolate. I used to put them in the freezer and pop a few in my mouth for a snack. They come in all kinds of colors!
Sprinkles, frosting, writing gels, cupcake liners, it’s all there.
Can’t forget the cookie cutters! There are usually special ones to coordinate with the holidays too.
Got a princess who wants a castle cake? Here you go!
Bet my daughter wishes I had gone to Michaels to help me make a castle cake for her birthday! Actually it looked a lot better in person than it does in the picture and I did let my 5-year-old help decorate it (no, I’m not making excuses)!

As I mentioned, every holiday gets its own specialty confections. Here are a couple for Spring and Easter.

So, the next time you need something in the bakery department, check out your local Michaels! Are you a baker? Make any fancy cakes lately?
Make sure to stop by and visit some of the other A to Z-ers! Coming tomorrow, the letter C.
