7 essentials for the British baker


Calling all baking fanatics! Whether you’re hosting afternoon tea, there’s a cake sale on at work, or you just want to while away the afternoon in the kitchen, we’ve picked eight of our favourite essentials for the British baker.

Springer Spaniel Apron, So Country

We all know that baking can get a little messy sometimes, so why not protect your clothes in style? We love this So Country apron, adorned with beautiful illustrations of pheasants and spaniels. It’s the perfect gift for any dog lover in your life.

Kitchen Conversion Oven Mitt, Rock Bakehouse

Mix and Measure Jug, Lily and Lime

There’s nothing worse than getting your measurements wrong and having to bin your latest baking creation. But fear not, as this beautifully designed ceramic jug will not only be an aesthetically pleasing addition to any baker’s kitchen, it will also help you to avoid any more baking disasters.

Personalised Baking Tin, Johnnys Sister

Why just personalise the cake when you can go one step further and personalise the tin too? We love the duck egg blue colour (and of course the tasty contents inside!).

‘Best of British’ Bunting, The Bunting Club

Nothing screams ‘Great British Bake Off’ louder than some quintessential English bunting and we’ve found just the sort. A strand of this pretty handmade bunting will give your a kitchen a look that even Paul Hollywood would be proud of.

A selection of jams, The Garden Pantry

Impress your guests at afternoon tea with a selection of unique and delicious jams from the Garden Pantry. We love the strawberry daiquiri flavour – made with fresh strawberries, crisp limes and a splash of white rum. Yum!
