Let’s get baking this autumn

We think there’s no nicer way to spend time when it’s too cold or wet outside, than cosied-up in the kitchen with the kids. Let’s face it, they love getting involved in baking, so why not get prepped for a family bake-a-thon this autumn... with a bit of help from us, of course! Just grab your wooden spoon and mixing bowl and let’s get ready!

Let’s get baking this autumn

Bring on a bake-a-thon

Autumn is the perfect time to start getting busy in the kitchen and with Christmas just round the corner, there's plenty of baking to be done. Whether you want to make treats for the kids, tasty bakes to share with friends and family, or get the Christmas cake started, we've got everything you need for a cosy autumn bake-a-thon!


Baking with the kids…

Kids love to get involved in whatever mum or dad is up to around the home, especially in the kitchen! Baking at home is a great place for sparking their creativity and they can learn so much from simple cooking tasks and easy-to-follow recipes. We think it's also a great opportunity for them to learn new skills and enjoy their own creations.

So, whether it’s making savoury snacks or sweet treats, get the kids baking and there’ll (hopefully) be something delicious to eat by the end of it too! Just be prepared that you might see more mix on the floor than in the bowl!


Baking essentials

We think it's a good idea to stock up on these essentials to get the best from your bake-a-thon and perfect all those yummy signature bakes:

  • Cookie cutters - in a selection of shapes and sizes
  • Muffin cases - perfect for your cupcakes and muffins
  • Spatula - to get all the cake mix out of the bowl
  • Rolling pin - to create the perfect pastry
  • Wooden spoon - a must-have for mixing cake batter
  • Non-stick bake-ware - in a selection of shapes and sizes
  • Mixing bowl - two different sizes come in handy

Store in style

Last but by no means least, you’ll need some baking storage for those beautiful cakes, biscuits and bakes to keep them fresh and tasting great for longer.

Our wilko 15-litre Cake Caddy has an easy-lock lid with handle for carrying and a reversible base for cakes and muffins. It also features a removable slatted shelf for cooling or stacking a second layer of cakes... that's a little win!

We've also got a gorgeous wilko marble round 3-piece tin box set that looks great as well as being stackable to save space. The set is perfect for all sizes of cakes and bakes!

We hope we’ve inspired you with our tips to get baking with the kids now the days are getting chilly and the nights are drawing in.
