2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this series on TV so I bought the latest book, I have been disappointed with it as it just hasn't added anything to the other books I have. There are not a great deal of recipes in this book and some we would not make in the UK as the ingredients are a bit rarer. If you are a bigger fan than me you might like it but just not my cup of tea I'm afraid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too small, 23 Mar. 2013

I thought this bag was far too small to get the camera in and your hand too. Buy the next size up, I'm sure that is more manageable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and easy to read and use., 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been using this for making preserves, it works really well, its easy to read the temp and the setting points are easily marked. I rinse mine in warm soapy water and let it air dry. It hangs on the side of the pan with a neat clip on one side. Good value for money with this item too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea for a gift, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my husband as a Valentines day gift. He had an older style electric toothbrush which was past its best. He loves this new one, it comes with different heads and has different settings. Best of all I have noticed how visibly cleaner and whiter his teeth appear to be. Its been a great buy and I can only recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen critical reviews of this case but I like it. Its is a great fit for the camera and does a great job of cushioning and protecting it. The only downside to this product is that the case is basically in two parts and the bottom screws in to the underside of the camera. This is fine but you have to unscrew it to remove the memory card, a bit of a nuisance when you take a lot of shots and have to upload them a lot too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely product, 14 Oct. 2012
I bought this to decorate a pop up tea room...found it really pretty and quite durable, although its made from paper the flags on the bunting are pretty strong.

Would recommend it. Its lovely!

Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners in cake decorating (ignore the title), 14 Oct. 2012
This is a great book but the title is wrong...its clear form the pictures that children haven't really made these cakes as they are far too well finished...and a number of the projects you wouldn't really make with kids.

However the joy of this book comes from the way each project is presented...if you want to learn how to decorate cakes then this book is for you, its great for a novice or beginner. It gives lots of tips and helpful advice and the instructions are clear.

The photography is great and the recipes look quite good too.

Buy this book if you want to learn how to decorate cakes at home..it will help you and is likely to improve your confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and stylish with lovely envelopes, 13 Sept. 2012
These thank you cards are in a postcard style, in that they are one piece of card, with some styling on one side and a blank side to write your note on the reverse.

The cards come in a few different designs the colours and style match other items in the range.

I loved the lined envelopes most of all, I thought they really added a flourish begin lined in the same designs as the notecards, you could either match the card design or use a different design altogether.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and practical, 13 Sept. 2012
This recipe folder contains a notepad on the internal cover, it has sections to store clippings, pages for notes on recipes, hints, tips and other recipes are included.

it is indexed and the pages and illustrations match the pretty range of colours and designs from the GBBO stationary range.

One of the things I liked about this folder is that its not too big (smaller than A4), would fit into a decent sized handbag infact. It would make a lovely gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent size, loved the colours, easy to assemble, 13 Sept. 2012
This cardboard dye cut cake stand is from the GBBBo range, its in lovely green, pink colours that match the range. Its made from sturdy card with a laminated finish that would be wipe clean suitable.

I found it easy to assemble in seconds and it packs flat, seems strong enough to be used again and again. Quite a decent size too for a stand of this nature.
