5. Kitchen Scales £12.49:
The most important part of good baking is getting the recipe right; baking is really chemistry, and you need to make sure you measure your ingredients accurately.

The glass platform makes the scales an attractive feature in your kitchen, and is also a hygienic and easy-to-clean surface. You can find it here
Every avid baker needs a good set of mixing bowls. These useful and durable bowls have a unique non-slip base to help prevent any mishaps when mixing, and include lids to store any leftover mixes.
The largest bowl has a handy lid opening which acts as a splash guard so you can use a hand mixer to mix the contents of the bowl. You can find it here
With a good supply of decorating tools, there’s no end to the possibilities when it comes to decorating cakes, biscuits and more.
Icing bags and nozzles are an absolute essential; with this set, it’s easy to experiment with different styles and textures of icing.
Modelling tools allow to you shape and sculpt materials such as icing and sugar paste to create intricate and personalised designs. Crimpers can also be used on icing and will add texture and patterns to your designs.
If you’re after speed and uniformity, a set of plunger cutters can help you decorate dozens of cakes in a matter of minutes. Use them to turn pieces of icing or sugar paste into gorgeous designs including butterflies, flowers, leaves and hearts.
Sugar craft moulds are very useful for adding detail and creating themed cakes. The silicone moulds include heart, rose and baby shower themes. You can find this here
