Don’t let TV fool you, baking is easy if you have the right tools

It all looks so hard doesn’t it? Those amazing baked concoctions the talented individuals on the Great British Bake Off pull out of the bag every week can’t be done at home, can they?

“I could never make that!” I hear you cry, but it’s all so much easier than you ever thought. It helps if you don’t blast tense, nerve-jangling music while you’re baking. It also helps if you’ve got the right tools in your arsenal.

Step forward the Morphy Richards Total Control Folding Stand Mixer. This innovative and space saving mixer folds down to fit in even the coziest kitchen and will help the ordinary become extraordinary – whether that’s mouth watering scones  or silky smooth Red Velvet cake.

It has a whole load of features including 3.5-litre bowl, six different speeds and 3 pre-programmed settings pre-sets to help you become a meringue and Victoria Sponge expert at the touch of a button.

You’d expect this sort of clever kitchen tech to cost a fair bit, but the transformer of a mixer costs less than a £100!

If you have a little more space, then the Morphy Richards Total Control Stand Mixer (£149.99) gives you more space and power, and we all like more power.

If Stephen Fry was a mixer this is the mixer he’d be – it’s properly smart.

It also comes with six speeds and a big 5-litre bowl, but the clever bit is that it can provide the right amount of power at the right time. This helps even the most inexperienced of cooks and bakers effortlessly make refined Victoria sponges and delicious pastries.

It can do this thanks to six presets that are easy to select. This lets you get perfect egg whites, whipping cream, sponge, butter cream and bread dough every time.
