Thinking of taking up baking as a hobby, but worry about it being expensive? VonShef has lots of baking essentials to suit every budget. And with the latest series of The Great British Bake Off back on our TV screens for another series, now is the perfect time to cook up a few showstoppers of your own.
There’s nothing worse than putting all your effort into manually whipping cream and still not getting results that look and taste perfect! Equipped with a few baking must-haves, you’ll have everything you need to get a better bake and enjoy your time in the kitchen a lot more. So here’s our great value guide to taking up baking.
Ask any seasoned baker what one piece of kit they wouldn’t bake without, and we’re pretty sure one of these babies will be their answer. The VonShef 1000W Stand Mixer is available in a selection of different colours and costs just £54.99. These models have an average 4.7 star review rating with customers loving things like the clever splatter shield, easy operation and sticky base pads. If you’re just starting out, this is perfect for letting the machine do the hard work so you can focus on other things like timings and following the recipe.
Once you’ve got your cake mix, batter or dough ready, it’s time to get it in the oven. Whether you’re doing a tray bake, loaf, brownies, cupcakes or a Victoria sponge, we have a set to suit. Made from quality carbon steel with a non-stick coating, these sets are suitable for all ovens, as well as the fridge and freezer – should your recipe call for it. The Set of 5 Oven Tins also includes a spring form cake tin, which is an absolute must for keeping any cake looking its best and getting it out of the tin effortlessly
When you’re just starting out, sets and bundles will always be great value to help you get more for less. With a selection of different piping heads and cookie cutters, the biscuit set gives you lots of options to keep trying different things and get your biscuits just right. And the Silicone Bakeware Set is naturally non-stick, and includes a selection of trays and utensils, so all you have to do is choose a recipe and give it a go.
Cake Stands and Turntables
We can guarantee that even if your first cake isn’t the showstopper you were hoping for, you’ll be incredibly proud of it, so it’s only right that you have somewhere to show it off. Our selection of cake stands and turntables are great for adding those finishing touches and putting your beautiful bakes proudly on display. The problem is, bake it too well and it’ll be too pretty to eat.
The problem with beautiful bakes is that they’re very delicate. With a specialist carry case, you can stack them and transport them easily. Take them to a birthday party, community event or get-together without worrying about splodged buttercream or ruined decoration. We’ve called it a cupcake holder, but with rotatable and removable shelves, you can put whole load of different cakes in there.
