Start up your KitchenAid’s Star Bakers – a subscription box directly from the Bake Off tent itself (or thereabouts) has been created and could be winging its way to you very soon.
That’s right, fans of The Great British Bake Off can now enjoy all the fun of the hit TV show, minus the panic-inducing time constraints or Paul Hollywood breathing down your neck! The Bake Off Box is a monthly subscription that delivers everything you need to create the ultimate technical challenge at home.
Each box comes complete with a collectable recipe card with step-by-step instructions, pre-portioned dry ingredients, a detailed checklist of any fresh ingredients you need to add, plus a bespoke piece of baking equipment designed by the Bake Off team.
There are several subscription options: the one-month rolling subscription is £19.99 a month (this one would make a perfect gift for those who are baking-mad), the 3-month bundle is £59.97 while dedicated bakers may prefer the 6-month option for £119.94. What’s even better is that 50p from every box bought is donated to the charity Stand Up To Cancer.
Each recipe has been carefully developed by the expert GBBO team, so whether you’re a Star Baker in the making or a total novice, you’re guaranteed a delicious and successful bake every time (granted you read those instructions properly!).
The next recipe box is for a British classic – bakewell tart. As well as the ingredients and instructions you need to make it, the bakewell tart box also includes a Palette Knife and Spatula set to add that je nais se quois to your masterpiece.
This edition of the box will drop in June, so it could make a great gift for dads who enjoy baking on Father’s Day. However, you’ll need to place your order by 15 May to ensure it arrives in time.
