Stand Mixer
The stand mixer has become a staple of wedding registries and kitchen countertops, and for good reason. Available at most housewares retailers, this little legend is much more than meets the eye. With tons of additional attachments and features, KitchenAid's Stand Mixer can help you create everything from basic batters, to doughs and icings and much more. (Homemade pasta attachment, hello!) Available in a variety of sizes and TONS of colors (like our personal favorite picture above, copper) to match any kitchen decor, no baker, regardless of experience, will regret placing one of these beauties on their registry.

Measuring Tools
Any avid baker knows that eyeballing is a no-no in the science of baking. In order to achieve the results you want, you have to accurately measure and prepare your ingredients — so naturally you'll need some go-to measuring tools. This is the perfect time to have a little fun, and play with some decor-inspired tools such as Anthropologie's adorably colorful Handpainted Atoll Measuring Spoons, or vintage Milk Bottle Measuring Cups.

Baking Pan Set
Whether you're making cookies, cupcakes or pastries, you'll need something to bake them on, of course! Instead of going a la carte, we recommend registering for the best bakeware set for your needs. Williams-Sonoma's Goldtouch Nonstick 6-Piece Essentials Bakeware Set features an array of pans and sheets for every baking need in a chic, golden color with nonstick coating. Another option is Rachael Ray's Cucina 10 Piece Bakeware Set, which has a nonstick surface interior and exterior within the carbon steel pieces, and easy grip edges to help prevent any kitchen accidents! (Goldtouch Nonstick 6-Piece Essentials Bakeware Set, $99.95, Williams-Sonoma)

Pastry Board
While everyone can dream of marble countertops that can double as equally useful and gorgeous, it's not always feasible. It's important to keep this in mind when registering to ensure that along with all your shiny new baking tools and accessories, you have a place to make the magic happen. A quality marble pastry board, such as Crate & Barrel's French Kitchen Pasty Slab, is made of white marble with grey veining adding glamour and a practical, cool surface for rolling and cutting your creations. For luxury lovers who also believe bigger is better, opt for this 24" x 16", 1" thick white Macael marble board, hand finished for smoothness and ease.

A Quality Rolling Pin
This might seem like a no brainer, but there are tons of options out there when it comes to rolling pins, and for the best results it's important to register for a quality tool to help roll your dough. The Epicurean Roller from Sur La Table is created from durable, non-porous wooden composite and is available in French Pin, Roller, and Straight styles to suit your baking needs and preference. For a non-wooden option, check out the stainless steel Paderno World Cuisine Nonstick Rolling Pin available at Bed Bath & Beyond, which has similar ability to marble, with much less weight. (Epicurean Roller, $75, Sur la Table)

Mixing Bowl Sets
Every baking project has it's own prep materials, but mixing bowls are almost always required. From stainless steel to tempered glass, there are tons of options out there. For newlyweds looking to save space, we recommend going with a nesting option for convenient storage when not in use. One of our favorite set options includes Wolfgang Puck 8-piece Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl Set with Silicone Bases available at HSN. Who doesn't love kitchen tools that double, or triple in purpose? The Pyrex 19-Piece Bake, Store and Prep Set lets you prep, cook and keep your creations. (Pyrex 19 Piece Bake, Store and Prep Set with Colored Lids, $49.99, Macy's)
