Sili-Mitts silicone oven mitts are the perfect addition to my kitchen. The oven mitts come in a nice selection of colors and I selected the grey mitts. I received these Sili-Mitts silicone oven mitts in a timely manner with super quick shipping.

I first tested them out over the weekend when making a cake for our Easter holiday dinner. I used the silicone oven mitts to take the cake out of the 350 degrees oven and I didn’t feel any burning or warmth. The oven mitts are made out of thick, high quality, food safe silicone but very soft of the inside because of the quilted inner lining. I especially enjoyed the raised textured pattern to grip the cake pans when taking them out of the oven. I have so many different bowls and cookware that are very slippery so this is a great added feature. They are easy to clean with soap and water. Sili-Mitts Silicone Oven Mits would be a perfect gift for a bridal shower or housewarming and had great packaging.

Q’sinn Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

The salt and pepper grinder set by Q’sinn is a high-quality set that can be displayed on your table or kitchen counter since it has a nice stainless steel finish that makes it stand out. I have used the disposable, grocery store type of grinders in the past that were not very sturdy and felt like they would break, however, Q’sinn are not the case.

The protective tops are another added bonus to this set so moisture and humidity does not alter the salt in the grinder. It has an adjustable knob to change the setting depending on how coarse or fine you prefer. I did not need to adjust it when I used them but it is a good feature in case you need to. The grinders are easy to fill and you can add any type of salt, pepper, etc. to the glass jars.

Overall, the grinder set exceeds my expectations. I am not sure if I would pay close to $20 for a set of these since I received them as a part of review, but they do make a great gift for a bridal shower or housewarming gift. To get your grinder set, visit: http://www.qsinn.com.

Thank you to Q’sinn for a great addition to my kitchen! Until next time, have a SWEET day! Bonnie


I always love giving a creative handmade gift for baby and bridal showers. This weekend, our family celebrated a bridal shower for my sister-in-law and I knew what I could make as part of her gift. I always see such cute diaper cakes and thought how could I put a spin on it to make it suitable for a bride to be???

Let’s make a towel cake with cooking utensils instead!

Listed below are the items you will need to make this towel cake, step-by-step instructions as well as photos of the finished gift. {Sorry there are no step by step photos to match the directions…I was putting it together as I made it}

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • (1) 10″ round cake board covered in decorative wrapping paper
  • (5) dish towels
  • (2) oven / hot pad
  • 4-5 kitchen cooking utensils & gadgets
  • Tulle or Ribbon
  • Bow/Ribbons for decoration
  • Pins or Rubber Bands
  • Packaging Tape

 

This towel cake was easy to assemble and took a little less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

BOTTOM TIER:

  • Cover the 10″ round cake board with wrapping paper to match the colors of the bridal shower or to match the colors of the towel set.
  • Starting with the bottom larger layer, roll (1) oven hot pad tightly and secure with the pins. I used sewing pins but safety pins or rubber bands would work too
  • Roll (3) dish towels around the oven pad, one at a time. I used 2 white towels and then 1 decorative towel for the outside. Secure with sewing pins
  • Add tulle or thick ribbon to secure the bottom towel cake layer together
  • To adhere the bottom layer to cake board, use double sided tape or packaging tape to hold it to the board for easy transportation

TOP TIER:

  • Wrap the second oven hot pad tightly together and secure with pins
  • Roll (2) white dish towels around the oven pad, one at a time. Secure with sewing pins. Roll last decorative towel around the white ones and secure with pins
  • Add tulle or thick matching ribbon to secure the top towel cake layer together
  • To adhere the layer to the bottom layer, I used pins to attach them together

 

DECORATIONS: Now the Fun Part!

  • Add the utensils by sliding them in between the towels of the bottom layer. I found matching spoons to pull the color scheme together. I also added some fun recipe cards and measuring spoons
  • Add a fun bow and ribbon to the top to cover where the towels and hot pad are rolled and you’re all done
  • I also added white tulle to wrap the whole towel cake to easier transportation since I didn’t want to hide it in a bag.

 

This towel cake would be great as a gift with some of the kitchen utensils and gadgets that the bride chose on her wedding registry OR even if you are hosting the shower…it would be nice centerpieces for the tables.

 

Until next time, have a SWEET day! Bonnie
