The perfect little baker

Portmeirion has a wide variety of products and designs. One of our favorites is the Sophie Conran collection because it can be layered with accent pieces or stand alone. Not to mention there are a variety of colors, more the merrier! Since the holidays are coming up we thought a must-have piece is the Sophie Conran mini baker. It is perfect for dips and baked brie.
