Tuesday is fast becoming my favourite day of the week, mostly because of Bake Off being on. Benn and I sit on the sofa, discussing the contestants and what baked product I want to buy as a result of this week’s show. However, I also have a baking deadline marching ever closer- D’s first birthday.
As I’m not a very good technical baker, I’ve decided to have a go at a Victoria Sponge cake and gussy it up with fancy birthday candles. I mean, it couldn’t be too hard, right?
Anyway, so I was looking on the Kleeneze site to see what nifty gadgets they have to help the cack-handed (cake-handed?) of us. Here’s my ultimate wishlist:
This. Is. Genius. A cake cutting wire. If left to my own devices, I would only end up in A+E, so this will save both money and the ambulance service’s time. It’s only £3.99 too!
As well as being rubbish with cutting, I am also clumsy when it comes to moving cakes around. As I’m sure I don’t want to mar the memory of D’s first birthday by serving his grandparents Victoria Sponge mush instead of actual slices of cake, this cake lifter could be a godsend.
I don’t have a food mixer- I have a hand whisk. I can’t be the only person who looks longingly at the hardware in TV chefs’ kitchens, can I? We don’t have room for one of these at the moment, but when we move I would LOVE a fancy stand mixer.
Mary Berry would be SO PROUD.
