There are few things we know for a fact about Blake Lively: 1. She has great style. 2. She’s starred in tons of great films. 3. She’s married to Ryan Reynolds. 4. Her kitchen skills are serious.

Vogue, “Food to me is love. When the whole family comes together, my mom makes a big meal, usually a family dish that was passed down.” She even had her own website devoted to lifestyle and cooking, called Preserve.‘ data-reactid=”34″>The actress has gone on record a number of times to discuss her passion in the kitchen, telling Vogue, “Food to me is love. When the whole family comes together, my mom makes a big meal, usually a family dish that was passed down.” She even had her own website devoted to lifestyle and cooking, called Preserve.

Though her site is no more, Blake still posts photos of her baking adventures every so often, and we’ve discovered that a number of her posts are specifically related to baking (to cupcakes, in particular.)

To honor the now-32-year-old on her birthday, we put together a list of the six essential baking and cooking items we’ve spotted Blake using. And, no. They aren’t all sheet pans and trays.

Icing bags

Nothing takes cookies, cakes and other desserts to the next level like using icing bags. The simple-yet-important baking accessory controls how much icing you put on, while adding some precision to the process.

A lover of cookies and cupcakes alike, Blake uses the bags to write messages, outline desserts or add designs.

It’s important to note that the icing bag is only as good as the accompanying tip. A decorating session gone wrong can usually be avoided if you use a precise topper. Packages that come with icing bags and a plethora of tips is the best to buy. Hint: test out the tips on a paper towel first to ensure you’re using one that works with your creative vision.

You can skip wasting plastic by finding reusable bags that are as good as new after a wash cycle.

Cutlery with meaning

The adorable spoon (and hilarious caption) caught our eye while scrolling through Blake’s page. The subtle touch of meaning can add a ton of love to your kitchen and dining experiences.

There are tons of way to add this subtle touch of love: Find items like spoon holders, coasters or dish towels that have monogrammed options, or come all ready with messages you can relate to.

Or, follow Blake’s path and find sparkling silver spoons that will mean more to you than the average cutlery.

Oversized serving dishes

Layering food onto the same dish creates a professional-looking presentation. Combining different flavors like salty and sweet on the same dish can blend flavors prior to eating.

Also, as you can tell in Blake’s photo, the more colorful foods paired together, the better.

Not only can large serving dishes fit family sized portions, they can actually save space on your table. Instead of dozens of small bowls and plates, a few larger ones will make it easier to navigate the spread. Also, fewer serving dishes make it easier for those at the table to pass plates around.

The easier the serving stage, the quicker you can all eat and enjoy the masterpiece.
