It’s all that seems to be on anyone’s lips right now – the return of the Great British Bake Off to our TV screens. Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, and Mel and Sue are back tonight on BBC1 at 8pm, with more tempting treats for us to try to emulate.
Or not. We’ve decided to forgo the actual cake, and go for some bake off style instead! Every bit as satisfying, (well, okay, sort of), but a lot less calorific.
So, that’s our weekly wishlist this week – a bit of bake off style for you, inspired by everyone’s favourite TV show! Cupcakes are yummy, right? And so are these cute cupcake false nails (£5, Claire’s Accessories). Just make sure they don’t come off in your cake mix!
Cupcakes look cute on your ears too – cute bake off style. Try diamante studded studs at Claire’s (£6) or little loveheart topped cupcake studs at JOY (£6). Cherries are baking essentials, so pay homage to them with Claire’s Accessories’ cute cherry necklace (£5).
Love a bit of lemon drizzle cake? Or a lemon meringue pie? Mmmm, us too. That’s why lovely lemon features in our bake off style in the shape, literally, of New Look’s lemon slice clutch (£6.50, was £12.99).
Apples are essential bake off ingredients – and for true bake off style grab JOY’s apple print top (£14, was £28) or H&M’s cute apple logo T-shirt (£7.99). Maybe pineapple upside down cake is more your bake off style? Create one wearing this fab sequinned pineapple T from H&M (£12.99).
BHS’s cute cupcake shorts (£8) are perfect lounging gear for when watching the bake off. H&M’s ‘Fresh’ logo t-shirt (£7.99) tells us exactly how we like our bake off style – and our baked goods! Nothing worse than stale cake or bread!
Finally if you want to join in the baking fun, then you’ll need an apron, or a pinny, as my granny liked to call it. JOY’s Victoria sponge recipe style (£12) is perfect. Eat your heart out, Mary Berry!
