Baking is no longer only a pastime of children in food tech classes and our grandmothers. From Carrie Bradshaw’s Magnolia Bakery cupcakes to the Great British Bake Off, baking has seen something of a revival over the last few years.

Now, budding bakers up and down the country are spending their weekends whipping up batches of scones and agonising over the perfect macaron. But if there’s one thing that your favourite baker loves more than cake, it’s adding to their collection of whisks, piping bags and silicone moulds.

From a personalised ‘baked with love’ stamp to a humorous apron, we’ve put together eight great gift ideas for your favourite baker.
