Baking Essentials You Need for National Cupcake Week

23rd September 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, it’s not Christmas, it’s National Cupcake Week. Yes, a whole week dedicated to cupcakes!

If you feel inspired to roll up your sleeves, get on your apron, and get baking, then we’ve got everything you need. Wilko at Salford Shopping Centre is an Aladdin’s cave of baking bits and bobs. Even Mary Berry would be impressed at what we’ve got in store. Just take a look…

Baking Basics

Never baked before? Worried you might burn the house down, but want to give it a go anyway? Wilko has a great range of practical basics that can put up with everything the enthusiastic amateur baker throws at them.

You’re not Paul Hollywood just yet. Set yourself up with a few well-chosen essentials and you’re ready to start your baking journey!


Finishing Touches

Creating a true showstopper takes a few finishing touches. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a star baker to give your cupcakes the wow factor – you just need to be a little savvy.

Wilko’s pretty little cake decorations cost just £1 each, and have no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fats. And their range of icing sugar cutters take the fuss out of creating delicate decorations.


All Sorts of Tins

From cute cakes to lovely loaves, whatever you want to bake, Wilko’s got you covered. We know it’s National Cupcake Week, but you can always branch out. No one’s going to say no to freshly baked bread, no, are they!

Wilko’s extensive range of cake, bun and bread tins are non-stick, oven proof, and dishwasher and freezer safe – and only cost a couple of pounds. They’re perfect to get you started.


Get the Look

Fan of the Bake Off tent? You can recreate the look in your own kitchen with a few little bits and bobs. You don’t need to break out the bunting (although that’s always a good idea), just choose a few stand-out items that can give your kitchen a little touch of retro shabby chic.


Wilko has a gorgeous collection of Pinterest-worthy home accessories that can create a whole new look.
