1: An Electric Mixer

Now this may seem like a lavish appliance – but how are you going to cope with hours of stirring, mixing and whipping it takes to win a technical challenge? – Unless you’ve got ‘guns’ like Popeye that is!

2: Weighing scales

Unlike with general cooking, rule number 1 of baking is to weigh your ingredients… accurately! Get the weights wrong and not only could you end up with a ‘soggy bottom’ to your bake, some things may not set, rise or taste anything like they’re supposed to. Scales aren’t the most expensive item on the list, but if you’re wanting to get to star baker status, you’re going to need them! Want scales to throw in the cupboard after use, go for our ‘save’ pick below, or splurge a little and get some cool looking ones to sit on your worktop!
