Although it’s over for another year, if you’re in mourning like we are you might want to fill that Great British Bake Off-shaped hole in your life with some Argos, Captain Cooks or Debenhams discount codes.

But what exactly is the secret ingredient to achieve that GBBO magic and how can you sprinkle your kitchen with the Great British Bake Off fairy dust? This may involve investing in a bit of fancy kit to really help you re-create an ‘authentic’ Bake Off experience, which might be a slightly trickier feat than you'd imagine, which is why we're here to help…


The Kit

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, BoysenberryOnce thing you can’t help but notice in the Bake Off tent is the abundance of fancy looking equipment. It certainly makes our cracked ceramic bowl and wooden spoons that have seen better days pale in comparison. So if you think the time has come to grace your kitchen with a state-of-art mixer, then our Captain Cooks promo codes can help you out, giving you either £10 off when you spend £150 or more or £15 off when you spend £250 or more. Use our Captain Cooks discount codes to take a look at the Kenwood Classic Chef Mixer (£209 before discount) or the beautiful KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer 4.8L in Boysenberry (£449 before discount).

What you might not realise is that to really achieve that Bake Off authenticity, you will need to have a camera trained on you every time you go to open your oven. That's fine if you’re in a large tent, maybe not so much if you have a kitchen the size of a postage stamp. Perhaps just stick with the fancy mixer and pretend you’re explaining your bake to Paul and Mary while using it.


The Strive for Perfection

There aren’t too many brave souls out there who would willingly tackle a Technical Challenge in their own kitchen, but it's not as impossible as you might first think. In fact, there’s one lucky crew member who has to test every single challenge to make sure that the contestants can manage them in the time provided.

Still not convinced? If you want to get that flawless bake then perhaps consider something simple like a Madeira cake, which is even more achievable when you use current Argos promo codes. Just click on the link that can save you up to 50% on selected cookware and bakeware, and our Argos discount codes can get you 20% off a Pyrex Classic 30cm Metal Loaf Pan (was £8.99, now £7.19).


The Finishing Touches to the Judges

To achieve true Great British Bake Off “sheer perfection” you'll need the give your cakes the vessel they deserve. Thankfully our Debenhams promo codes can help you out with this one – they’re currently offering up to 75% off selected cookware, so click on these Debenhams discount codes to buy a beautiful Ashley Thomas Pink Porcelain Floral Strawberry Three Tier Cake Stand (was £30, now only £18).

To add that extra layer of Bake Off magic, why not wear the same clothes for two days, like the Great British Bake Off contestants have to? You can even douse yourself in extra flour for greater authenticity. Or perhaps not.


We won’t go as far as recommending you erect a tent complete with portable kitchen in your back garden, but with our Captain Cooks promo codes, Argos promo codes and Debenhams promo codes you can go a long way to re-creating that GBBO magic until you can settle down with tea and cake in front of the telly for next year's series.
