A Fabulous Collection of Retro British Bakeware by Tala
I remember baking with my grandmother and mum, in the warmth of an old country kitchen, there were free-range eggs from the farm up the road, flour and raisins, butter and sugar……and an old Tala cook’s measure…..with a myriad of ingredients printed inside…..then when we made mince pies at Christmas, and again, there was an old Tala patty tin for our festive pies – with shell patterns on the base……..it is fair to say that I was brought up on Tala in the kitchen, and I recently reviewed some of their latest products here: Sepia Saturday, Happy Baking Days with Tala and Be-Ro: Strawberry Iced Butterfly Fairy Cakes.
Tala loved my review and recipe and have very kindly offered me an amazing collection of Retro Bakeware and Cake Decorating Icing products to give away on my blog, and just in time for National Baking Week, which runs from 15th to 21st October 2012.
I am REALLY pleased to offer the following TEN items for my Giveaway:
Icing Pen; 3 Sunflower Plunger Cutters; Flat Edge Smoother; Fondant Rolling Pin; Spring-form Cake Tin; Retro Cake Pinny; 1960’s Icing Syringe in a tin; 1960’s Retro Cook Measure; 1960’s Retro Hand held trigger sieve and 1960’s Retro 3 tier cake tins
What an amazing prize! All of the items are British designs, and some of the items are based on Retro baking and cooks equipment from the 1960’s and are made in England. What will you make if you win this fabulous prize? A fruit cake or a Victoria sponge? Or maybe some biscuits or scones? Or, will you set about making a celebratory cake and try your hand at icing?
How about making a batch of my Fairy Cakes, Strawberry Iced Butterfly Fairy Cakes, the recipe is shared below……
Tala, originating from Taylor and Law, has been associated with baking and icing for over 100 years – since 1899.
We still proudly own catalogues ranging from the 1920’s up until today, containing products which are still made in the same way; lovely, English manufacturing.
Traditional methods are used to manufacture most of our products. This involves production by hand, by a small team of skilled people behind the high quality of each product.
A priority of Tala has always been to create products that are built to last. Take an icing nozzle manufactured in the 1920’s, and it will still fit an icing syringe made today. So we couldn’t be more honest when we say you are using products that your mothers and grandmothers have always used.
