Have you joined in the #GBBO madness? It seems that the whole nation is tuning in to watch Mary, Paul, Mel, and Sue, as well as this year’s contestants, on the 2016 Great British Bake Off. In fact, the series is so popular that the last day of the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials featured a charity bake off in aid of Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys “High Teas for Gee Gees” campaign.
If you fancy yourself a star baker and want to transform your homemade bakes into a showstopper worthy of presenting to Mary and Paul, take a look at our horse themed baking accessories:
If you’re usually a fan of a simple Victoria sponge and fiddly bakes aren’t really up your street then these equestrian moulds are an easy way to turn your simple sponge into a cake that will really get people talking.
The Ikea Drömmar set of two baking tins are shaped like the traditional Swedish Dala horse and are perfect for making pony shaped cakes that don’t require lots of cutting and shaping.
Alternatively, this Equestrian Design Cake Mould from Spartan Equestrian has six different designs. Ideal if you want to make a range of smaller cakes for a pony themed party or bridal shower.
For those of you that are big on cake decoration and want to up your game then this Lucky Horseshoe Silicone Mould is suitable for shaping chocolate, fondant, sugar paste, royal icing, and much more.
Cantering Cookie Cutters
Cookies are a great quick and easy bake, ideal if you’re baking with children or feeding a crowd. Shaped cookie cutters instantly give your bakes a theme and save you having to try and cut shapes into the dough with a knife. Try this Pony Party Cookie Cutter or Horse Head Cookie Cutter for beautiful equestrian themed bake.
Want something a little more magical? This Unicorn Cookie Cutter is perfect for princess parties or just to add a little bit of sparkle to your weekend in the kitchen.
Another way to brighten up a simpler bake is to choose themed decorations. This is a great trick if you’re not very good at icing or trickier methods of cake decoration such as sugar work.
These Pony Club Sugar Decorations can easily be placed on top your cake, cupcake, or cookie before eating.
Tools of the Trade
They say a workman is only as good as his or her tools and if you’re going to be a baking success then it’s important you have the right kitchen accessories.
You’ll really look the part in this gorgeous French Equestrian Apron and you’ll be able to take your cakes out of the oven without worrying about burning yourself by using these cute Sophie Allport Horses Double Oven Gloves.
Finally, you can give your bakes a lucky stir before they go into the oven with this Horse Personalised Wooden Spatula.
