Sara Miller London Baking Essentials

Whether you’re whipping up a cake for a special birthday celebration, prepping your menu for a seasonal gathering or are looking to perfect that after-dinner dessert, there’s nothing quite like a home-cooked sweet treat to round off the occasion. You’ve got your recipe, you’ve gathered your ingredients and now all you need are some cute baking accessories to help out along the way! Luckily, we’ve compiled some fabulous home baking equipment ideas to get you started. 

We’ve all been there: the one time you decide to brave it sans apron, the icing sugar puffs up into a huge cloud and the little one spills the vanilla essence down your front. Fret no more! If you like to cook in style (and save your clothes from any spillages in the process!) you might want to invest in an apron. One of the most essential baking accessories, the trusty apron is an absolute must-have for any budding baker. Why not take a look at our vibrant selection? From our striking Tahiti collection – featuring beloved prints including Zebra, Tahiti Flamingo and Cockatoo – to our uplifting Peony Apron, these cake baking accessories will be sure to see you through the most ambitious of kitchen creations. Not sure where to start? How about our best-selling Parrot Apron? Part of our Tropical Collection, this apron features brightly coloured parrots perched upon striking foliage. Presented on high quality cotton, all of our aprons make cute baking accessories and will be sure to add a stylish splash of colour to your home.

Once you’ve prepared your goodies and they’re baking away, the next course of action is to grab yourself some oven gloves. An essential piece of home baking equipment, our oven gloves can even be mixed and matched with our wide assortment of aprons and tea towels – the ideal way to perfect your favourite recipes in style. For the baker who loves to bring the outdoors in, why not take a look at our popular Cockatoo Double Oven Gloves? An instant hit with bakers and guests alike, these cute baking accessories are sure to make an impression - feature charming cockatoos perching majestically amongst colourful tropical foliage. Match with our Cockatoo Apron and Cockatoo Tea Towel to make a real statement. And if cockatoos aren’t your thing, we’ve got plenty of alternatives. From our tropical toucans to our elegant swans, whatever cake baking accessories you’re looking for, we’ve got them! After all, why fumble around with a make-shift oven glove (your apron, your tea towel, any thick piece of material you can find!) when the real thing looks so good?

When everything is out on the cooling rack and, if you can resist temptation, has been left to sit for a minute, it’s time to plate up. Whether you’re looking for cake plates in gorgeous jewel tones, a one-tier cake stand or a three-tier cake stand, or a magical serving plate that’ll see you through the festive season – we’ve got all the designer kitchenware you need to show off your sweet treats in style. For those smaller nibbles, you might want to opt for our Green Birds 3 Tier Cake Stand. Featuring an array of stunning birds in an enchanted garden setting, it is even embellished with rich 22-carat gold detailing for that extra luxurious feel! The perfect showstopper for any afternoon tea, it’ll be sure to turn heads. Or, if you’re looking for larger baking accessories, how about our Pale Grey Lovebird Cake Stand? Ideal for serving up cakes, pies and a whole host of other treats, this cake stand is guaranteed to bring the ‘wow factor’ to any occasion.  

And when the meal is over, be sure to preserve your baking accessories in style with one of our Sara Miller storage tins. Our best-selling Giraffe, Parrot and Toucan Round Tin Caddies are a sure-fire way to brighten up any home, as well as keeping your kitchen niks and naks safe and organised – featuring three vibrant and characterful designs that’ll be sure to make you smile whenever you walk into the kitchen. As for the nibbles? Why not try out our Flamingo Biscuit Barrel? This Sara Miller biscuit tin is decorated with flamboyant flamingos prancing in golden crowns and is perfect for keeping those biscuits and cookies fresh for weeks to come (though we suspect they’ll be eaten up long before then!).
