If you’ve missed watching baking disasters (and miracles) happen before your very eyes, you’ll be very pleased to hear that The Great British Bake Off is back on the telly tonight, and with a star-studded line-up.
Yes, The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off is back, whereby celebrities take to the hallowed tent to attempt the iconic baking challenges (signature, technical and showstopper), all in the name of raising money for Cancer Research UK’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
If you’re anything like us, the arrival of the iconic baking show back on our screens has us itching to get in the kitchen ourselves, flexing our newfound baking skills we’ve honed over many months of lockdown. And even if we’re not quite up to a standard worthy of a Paul Hollywood handshake, we can at least look the part with the official Great British Bake Off merchandise.
Because when you’re in your own kitchen, you don’t have to wait for Paul or Prue to crown you star baker, soggy bottom or not – go ahead and crown yourself by donning your very own star baker apron. You can even compete the set with matching oven gloves and a selection of tea towels, all of which will let any visitors know a baking genius resides here.
Alternatively, the Great British Bake Off merchandise range also includes a star baker mug, which will let everyone know of your baking prowess as you subtly sip from it on your next Zoom call.
Another exciting product available to buy is limited edition boxes of the Great British Bake Off‘s signature chocolate cake.
Due to overwhelming demand from fans, the Bake Off Box team released the boxes to buy as a one-off without a subscription, so you can try the box before making any commitments. Plus, 50p from every sale goes to Stand Up To Cancer.
Unsurprisingly, the boxes flew off the virtual shelves and have now sold out. But you can leave your email address to be alerted when they’re back in stock.
The limited edition boxes include:
• A step-by-step, illustrated recipe card
• All of the pre-measured dry ingredients from carefully selected suppliers
• A bespoke Bake Off cake stand in duck-egg blue
• A detailed checklist, so you can prepare everything you need
• A collectable postcard, beautifully illustrated by the show’s illustrator Tom Hovey
