Take a practical approach to love
February has been awash with the usual romantic Valentine’s Day gift ideas, but the team here at BakeryBits like to take a more practical approach to matters of the heart.
If your other half is a whiz in the kitchen, show you appreciate their skills with something a bit more useful – they’ll love you for it!
Once they’ve proved their love for you with some freshly baked bread, why not show your love for them with a Proving Basket Cleaning Brush?
An essential for any keen artisan bread baker, the banneton brush is the perfect tool for cleaning up your cane proving basket after a hearty day of Valentine’s bread baking.
Priced at £8.50, these brushes keep proving baskets in top condition by sweeping out the flour and any bits of dough – a perfectly practical gift!
Great Comic Relief Bake Off
If you are anything like the team at BakeryBits, you probably spent part of January glued to The Great Comic Relief Bake Off. Some sharp-eyed viewers may have spotted our Springform Cake Pans giving the celebrities a much-needed helping hand in the kitchen. Priced at £11.58, these tins have a solid construction and are perfect for cakes, cheesecakes – and the Jo Brand ‘Desmond Tutu’ gateaux.
Four cakes in one
Our new Deep Multisize Cake Pan takes all-in-one baking to the next level. Priced at £28.58, the 12” square pan has two sub-dividers making it easy to split into the sizes and shapes you want, with room for 4 cakes at a time. An efficient way to create multiple cakes of a specific size and shape in one, without having to keep a large stock of square and rectangular pans!
