Release your inner Bake Off contestant with these 8 baking essentials

With The Great British Bake Off dominating our TV screens (and stomachs) the last few weeks, we’ve all been feeling the itch to get our bake on. It’s time to stop drooling over blush pink icing, raspberry sorbet, and lemon drizzle cheesecake and flex your own baking muscles, and if we’re going to compare ourselves to these quasi-amateur bakers, you know we’ll be doing it with the best kit. Everything, including baking, is made more fun with great accessories.

As Storm Ali and the tail end of Hurricane Florence are set to pummel our shores this week, is there a better place to be than indoors with something gooey you whipped up yourself? I think not, so here are some gorgeous kitchen kit that will guarantee some sweet results; it’s all about presentation after all.
