It’s baaack! Well, almost. A 7th season of what’s undoubtedly the nation’s favourite show, GBBO, is set to start in late August and we’re on the edge of our seats with anticipation already – perhaps it’s all the sugar or the heat of the ovens.
What outrageous challenges are Paul and Mary going to set the contestants this season? Will we be able to sit there with a straight face as Mel and Sue roll off the innuendos? And who can top our beloved Queen of the tent Nadiya (answer: no one, but we’re going to have plenty of fun watching them try).
In anticipation we’ve stocked our shelves with everything you need to be star baker, whether you’re whipping up a batch of biscuits for the kids or attempting to scale a croquembouche (that’s the big tower of profiteroles dripping with caramel and chocolate – it’s making us just as hungry just writing about it!).
Embrace a typically retro red white and blue look with a pair of vintage weighing scales and a beautiful ceramic mixing bowl, make sure your liquids are all on hand with some matching jugs in reds and pinks and store it all in a cake carrier, ready for taking to work or that next party. The other bakers won’t know what’s hit them!
