The Basics

Here are some of the basics in case you want to join me for Group Baking Therapy.

A) Things you should ALWAYS have on hand, in case you are having a total melt down. 

I know this list looks long, but most of it will last you awhile, and you will gradually buy things as they run out. But keep your kitchen stocked, trust.

Butter

Flour

Sugar (Both granulated and confectioners)

Vanilla Extract

Salt

Baking Soda

Baking Powder

Hand Mixer

Shortening

Chocolate Chips

Food coloring

B) Kitchen supplies you need to have if you don’t already. 

Hand mixer (or if you are really ready to commit, drop $300 and get a Kitchenaide mixer. It will change your life)

Mixing bowls

Measuring Cup (both dry and liquid)

Measuring spoons

Piping tips and bags (Go pick yourself up a starter kit and some bags…just get them. Trust me)

C) Here are a few basic recipes that are quick and easy if you are in need of a session..

Buttercream

Vanilla Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you know these, you can pretty much make any cupcake on the planet plus you will know how to make cookies from scratch which makes you awesome.
