The Best Bridal Shower Gift For A Bride Who Bakes

Are you looking for a unique bridal shower gift? Something that's NOT on their wedding registry list?

Don't get me wrong, I think bridal registries are extremely helpful and they're certainly a great idea to help the young couple get most of the things they really want and need but I hate that they already know about everything on the list.

Sure, it makes the shopping easier but I think it takes away from the fun of the actual gift giving.

So, when I was invited to a bridal shower being given this coming fall for my lovely niece, I began searching for that extra special surprise gift to get for her in addition to something I chose from her bridal registry.

I wanted something extra special and unique for her. It had to be something that I knew she'd love and that she didn't know anything about.

Knowing that she enjoys cooking and baking, when I found these personalized cake pans at Zazzle, I knew I had the perfect surprise bridal shower gift for her.

Read on to learn why.

Personalized Baking Pans

This is just one of literally hundreds of gorgeous designs you can choose from.

Made in the USA by Nordic Ware

These are real Nordic Ware pans that have custom printed tops.

I've been using Nordic Ware baking pans for as long as I can remember so I already knew they make really great high-quality bake ware and kitchen ware. I was thrilled to learn that Zazzle had teamed up with them in creating these wonderful personalized pans.

They use a 9” x 13” x 3” size pan which is the perfect size for baking a standard sheet cake, the size you'd bake when using one box of cake mix without layers, and also for making lasagna or baked Ziti.

The pan comes with a tightly fitting snap-on cover which makes protecting and storing leftovers super easy and carrying food anywhere a breeze.

Only the top of these lightweight aluminum pans is printed. Please note that only a 10.6" x 6.25" size area will be printed. You can choose one of the hundreds of amazing design templates available to personalize yours or you can create a design of your own. You can even upload a photo of your own to us. How cute would it be to use a picture of the happy couple?

Packaging Information

This is how it looked when it arrived and I opened the box.  You can see that it was very carefully packaged using a sturdy box and bubble wrap.  When I removed the outer layer of bubble wrap, the pan was also wrapped up with plastic.

Custom and Personalized Design Ideas

There are so many different ways you can personalize and customize these pans. Here's a few ideas to get you started.

  • The Couple's Names
  • Their Monogram
  • A Photo of the Bride and Groom-to-Be
  • A Picture of their Home or Pet
  • A Favorite Phrase
  • A Special Recipe That You Want To Share With Them Printed Right On The Cover!

My Recommendation for Choosing a Design and Colors

Choose Dark Colors.

When choosing your design, or creating one of your own, I highly recommend choosing something with deep, dark colors in the design and text.


Light colors seem to get a little lost on the brushed silver color of the aluminum pan it is being printed on.

Although I still love the pan and the design I chose for my niece, the yellow color of the flower design seemed a little washed out to me. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will be choosing something with darker design colors.

Easy Use and Care Instructions for your Personalized Pan

  1. These pans need to be hand washed only.
  2. Because they aren't non-stick pans, it's recommended that you properly grease and flour the pan each time it is used before baking. A spray like Pam with flour would work well too.

A View From The Inside

This is what the pan looks like on the inside with the cover upside down.  I'm not sure if you can see it in this photo but the lid is designed to slide onto the pan and then snap down for a secure fit.

Ideas to Make Your Bridal Shower Gift Even More Special

You can make your bridal shower gift even more special by adding a little something-something to the personalized pan.

  • Share your special cake and frosting recipes with the bride and groom or pass along your best recipe for lasagna with homemade meat sauce.
  • Add a couple of boxes of cake mix and frosting so they can get baking right away.
  • Add a spatula and/or some measuring cups and spoons to complete the cake baking theme.


DIY Mini Gift Basket Idea

Make it a mini gift basket by adding a couple of boxes of cake mix.  Two boxes fit perfectly.

Not Just for the Bride-to-Be

Best of all, these pans aren't just great gifts for bridal showers, they also make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves to bake.

They're also the perfect gift for Christmas, birthdays, weddings or anniversaries and they would make for a spectacular housewarming gift.

Do You Agree?

Is this the BEST bridal shower gift for a bride who bakes or not?
