Baking delicious cakes and pastries is something that when done right can be truly worth the wait. Baked desserts can provide the perfect conclusion to lunch or dinner while snacks such as biscuits and doughnuts are always welcome in most homes and workplaces. Certainly, baking up a storm in the kitchen is something that many of us aspire to, but sometime struggle to find the time or the motivation. One thing to keep in mind is that it really helps to have a good set of tools and implements to aid you in your quest to bake the perfect treat. Make sure you have everything in place and readilly accessible and you can proceed in confidence. Here at Dotmasion we have found a few items that could really support a busy bake-station!
The delightful LSA Serve Cakestand & Dome, Clear (above) could act as a showcase for the time you’ve put in the kitchen. And cooking and baking really doesn’t have to be hard work – more than anything else, it can be seen as a chance to try out different ideas, different tastes and different sensations.
Something a little different can certainly be achieved through the use of the Let’s Cook Crumpled Espresso Cup Giftbox. This stunning collection of 4 beautifully designed crumpled espresso cups by Revol arrives along with a recipe booklet that can offer great ideas for sauces, dips and desserts. As a surprising take on kitchen essentials, this really takes the biscuit – or anything else you want to bake for that matter!
Another great way to present cakes can be achieved with the Orla Kiely – Raised Stem Cake Tins Set of 5, Round. These tins are ideal for muffins, cupcakes and baked puddings and will house them all in wonderful style. The tins provide a perfect space to keep your baked goods fresher for longer with the five different containers allowing for a variety of shapes and sizes. Featuring Orla Kiely’s commitment to a use of eye-catching colour and design work, this is one set perfect for a modern – and busy – kitchen.
One thing that is for certain when baking is that you’re going to be doing some chopping up ingredients. The Eva Solo Bamboo Chopping Board has been crafted from hardened bamboo combined with a durable non-slip silicone border to provide the ideal platform to get to work slicing and chopping. Available in three different colours, the board is the first step towards a delicious baking success!
