Registry Essentials for the Bride and Groom Who Love to Bake

Whip up something delicious with a little help from these kitchen must-haves.

Building the perfect wedding registry is kind of like an art: It should be the right balance of household necessities, luxurious upgrades, and timeless pieces you’ll use now and in 20 years. But once you’ve scanned all of the bedding, dinnerware, and Champagne flutes you’ll ever need, what else should you register for? It’s up to you, but we think choosing gifts that match your hobbies is the way to go. For brides and grooms who love to bake, that means essentials necessary for whipping up decadent cookies, cakes, pies, and more. If you consider yourself part of this camp, read on for the registry must-haves every baker needs.
