Bake Off making you hungry? Here's where you can have your cake and eat it

Tuesday night’s GBBO had you salivating at all the delicious bakes, right?

Well we might not be able to transform you into a master baker overnight, but we can direct you to where you can pick up your own delicious sweet treats.

From a regency high tea to an edible Christmas countdown, here’s where you can satisfy your sweet tooth.

Do it Bridgerton style

Baking supremo Lily Vanilli is set to launch a new afternoon tea in the grand Regency surrounds of London’s recently restored Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

Inspired by Bridgerton-style decadence and served in the opulent Grand Saloon, you’ll find treats such as mini sticky toffee puddings with custard and salted caramel, pink lemonade tarts with elderflower jelly, and even an absinthe and choc-chip ice cream.

From £49pp, book now at The Lane

Death by brownie

Brownie obsessives will go crazy for Cake Or Death’s handmade vegan brownies, which are delivered straight through your letterbox.

With flavours including sea salt, Biscoff, Oreo and peanut butter, you can choose a dedicated box or mix it up to try a few kinds.

From £17 for a box of six, available nationwide from Cake or Death

Bake for Macmillan

Cake, coffee and a good cause: it’s Macmillan’s Coffee Morning 2021 tomorrow and to help to support this, you’re encouraged to get together with friends and family over a cuppa.

Macmillan’s partner, M&S, will be selling relevant products, including a bespoke Macmillan Colin The Caterpillar cake, with 10% of proceeds going to Macmillan.

Alternatively, purchase one of the limited-edition Betty Crocker cake mixes or icing tubs (10p will be donated to Macmillan from each product sold) to bake a treat for your event.

Lina’s online
