Take a look at our brilliant variety of serving trays to serve everything from cakes to snacks with style. Our lap trays are perfect for late night nibbles and breakfasts in bed.
Measuring your baking ingredients
There's a lot of effort that goes into baking cakes and biscuits, and while eating them is the best part making them can be just as much fun. We've got kitchen utensils for everyone, from the beginner trying their hand at some simple fairy cakes to the expert artisan beginning their latest multi-tiered marvel. A decent set of kitchen scales is where you need to start, so you can get precise and accurate measurements of ingredients. Go for a classic mechanical scale for a touch of retro nostalgia, or a modern digital scale for ultra-accurate weighing and easy reading.
Baking tools and accessories
Once you have your ingredients measured out it's time to get to work making the mix. We've got plenty of mixing bowls for you to choose from, including full sets that will give you plenty of versatility when making batters, mixtures, frostings and more. Then of course there are the electric food mixers ready to add a bit of ease to your baking session. Hand mixers are ideal for creating doughs, fillings, and toppings but if you want to free up your time so you can multitask in the kitchen then stand mixers are the way to go. Put the ingredients in, set the mixer, and you can start prepping other important parts like greasing the trays and prepping the decorations whilst the mixer is at work. Then when everything is ready, carefully pour your mixture into one of our cake tins, pop it in the oven and wait for your home to be filled with the irresistible aroma of homemade cakes and bakes.
Afternoon Tea at Home
When it comes to hosting a high tea at home, make sure you get it right with tableware that complements the occasion.

Perhaps you're looking for stunning plates to complete your dinnerware, we've got it all here under one roof.
