CF Blog: Are your customers ready for the return of Bake Off?
This week sees the return of an annual holiday. The new series of The Great British Bake Off starts this week and the nation is ready. The last 2 years have given birth to a whole new hoard of bakers thanks to lockdown, furlough, and a long damp spring means many of us had nothing better to do than bake away the days, and these new bakers join the ones who were brought up by the stoves, living in aprons, baking Mary Berry recipes from an early age, meaning the captive audience is bigger than ever.
For those starting out, we have some great Baking Kits including Brownie Mix from Creative Nature, Carrot Cake from Free & Easy and many more. We also added some great options to our Seasonal range for Christmas, The Bottled Baking Co look great on any shelf, BakedIn have some great seasonal options and of course The Treat Kitchen have their best-selling gingerbread kits. Watch this space for some great additions to the seasonal range for Spring too…!
For ready-made options, we’ve added fresh cakes from Buxton Pudding Company to our Chilled & Fresh range. These come with a minimum of 16 days shelf life and taste good enough to fool anyone they’re homemade.
For something a little more crunchy and crumbly (and perhaps dunkable), you can never have too many biscuits. Some of our more recent additions include Cuoco and new tins of biscuits from Island Bakery, which would also make great gifts. We’ve also got new gluten free options in the shape of Sweet FA for those with dietary requirements (also vegan friendly!).
A much anticipated addition to the range is Gimmie.. Smore Kits. Perfect for staycations with firepits, BBQs or fireplaces, simply toast your marshmallow, and squish between 2 biscuits and add in some chocolate or toffee. Delicious.
So whether your customers are star bakers, looking for a baking kit to help avoid a soggy bottom, or just here for the taste test, our latest range has everything your customers need to get in the Bake Off spirit.
