We’re deep enough into this series of The Great British Bake Off now that, as the bakers are whittled down to the best of the best, we’ve stopped feeling smug about any technical challenge baking fails and started to feel seriously inadequate thanks to some of the incredible creations coming out of the tent. 

However, while creating a picture-perfect three tier cake may take a lot of practice, creating a pretty kitchen is well within the grasps of even the most challenged baker. 

With that in mind, we’ve curated some of our favourite kitchen baking picks, all of which will help motivate you to pick up a whisk again should you face another baking catastrophe.

A golden sieve may seem the ultimate baking luxury, but if you have a kitchen with open shelving and hooks, it can double up as an impressive piece of décor too.
