The Great British Bake Off is back with a bang.
To mark the occasion we’ve rounded up the 10 Bake Off Must haves that Pru and the gang wouldn’t be seen without.
1. A stainless steel weighing scale
Getting your measurements down to the nearest gram is essential for the pro baker. A stainless steel scale will look just as good in your kitchen as a finessed sponge. The Marsden B-400 is a retail approved scale with superior accuracy. Used by kitchen professionals, this is the ultimate option for the serious baker. Marsden has been the UK’s leading scale manufacturer since 1926 so be assured you are in good hands!
2. A ceramic mixing bowl
All that mixing deserves an attractive yet sturdy mixing bowl. In this case traditional is always best. Mason Cash mixing bowls have been every baker’s choice since 1901 and become something of an icon.
3. A silicone baking mat
Whether you are a baking newbie or a Bake Off pro, this silicone mat will help you keep bowls steady and give dimensions for a multitude of doughs, dishes and cakes. Plus it is oven proof up to 180 degrees so you know it certainly can handle the heat in your kitchen!
4. A standing mixer
There’s no doubt the Kitchen Aid is the ultimate kitchen accessory. These beautiful mixers will help you create a whole host of delicious delicacies.
5. A wooden rolling pin
A good wooden rolling pin is the sword of the baker. This sturdy rolling pin from Ikea is an absolute bargain!
6. A personalised cake tin
Where better to store your lovingly baked goods than a personalised cake tin? This beautiful tin from Not on the High Street is perfect for Pru’s classic victoria sponge.
7. Silicone utensils
A baker is only as good as their tools. So making sure you have a great set of silicone utensils is a must. This sleek set from Pro Cook is just the ticket!
8. A piping set
You can’t create those beautiful cake designs without a decent piping set. This complete set from Lakeland is ideal for all your Bake Off inspired creations.
9. Cookie cutters
You can’t make delectable biscuits without some great cookie cutters. Lakeland has a great selection ranging from unicorns to a stegosaurus.
10. Cookery school
If all else fails, why not treat yourself to some cooking lessons with the Waitrose Cookery School? Don’t let your souffle's flop! Learn to be a baker Paul would be proud of...you never know you might even get a handshake.
