Fun and Easy Baking to Support Our Country’s Heroes

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

There’s no doubt about it, Britain has gone bonkers for baking, so why not put this great activity to good use and join in the fundraising fun by taking part in this year’s Help for Heroes Colossal Cake Sale?

Organising Your Cake Sale

Putting on a charity cake sale really couldn’t be easier – simply bake a few cakes and get friends and family to chip in with some tasty sweet treats to sell in your community centre, town hall, workplace or even your backyard. Small or large, your sale will be supporting a fantastic charity working to help injured, wounded and sick veterans, Service personnel and their families.

Promote your event on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter and get your local shops and cafes to put up a poster or donate some cakes.

Bake sales are a great way to get the community together. Hold your event any time between 20th April – 5th May and register your sale online to receive a free fundraising pack. Last year’s Colossal Cake Sales raised over £160,000, so dig out your icing sugar and flour from the back of the cupboard and give something back this spring.

Getting the Right Tools for the Job

There are dozens of fancy baking gadgets on the market to make baking quicker and easier. Stylish stand mixers are a must for the avid baker and have a user friendly design and powerful motor to produce a thorough, light mixture every time.

Baking trays are also an essential tool for making cupcakes and muffins, whilst pretty pink cases will give you that finishing touch.

Making cakes is a brilliant activity which children and adults of all ages can enjoy, and you’ve got plenty of time to practice your culinary skills and put together some great recipes for a great cause.

 

Ensure you look the part and give your cake stall a touch of ‘Britishness’ with Help for Heroes Colossal Cake Sale merchandise.

Brilliant baking with Le Creuset Bakeware

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Here at Go-Electrical we have never come across anyone who doesn’t like Le Creuset cookware. It’s the famous, sought-after brand that makes fantastic cast iron and stoneware pieces which are available in a range of beautiful colours, so you can probably imagine how quickly we decided to snap up the new Le Creuset range.

Being experts in home cooking, and understanding how people cook Le Creuset have decided to create a new range of bakeware which is designed to “meet the needs of baking experts and novices alike”. Say hello to Le Creuset’s premium quality non-stick metal bakeware.

The Bakeware Collection features essential pieces for cake baking, pastry and bread making such as cake tins, baking sheets and oven trays. All are practical but sleek, finished in a black non-stick finish and every piece features a Le Creuset volcanic orange silicone trim which is, of course, heat resistant. Oh, and just like the cast iron pieces, the Bakeware Collection comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Visit Le Creuset’s website to view recipes which can be made using the new Bakeware Collection, and then visit our Le Creuset pages to purchase the new collection, and of course, any other Le Creuset cookware.

Be great in the kitchen with a KitchenAid Artisan mixer

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

‘The Great British Bake-Off’ has finished for another year, but that doesn’t mean that the baking fever sweeping the nation is dying down – far from it. Over the past few years the UK has seen a massive growth of interest in baking and cooking at home, and the enthusiastic home cooks and wannabe chefs up and down the country all want the best possible tools available to them to create tasty home cooked treats.

The KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer is one of these tools, and was the chosen mixer for the GBBO contestants, as it was last year. Not only are these mixers available in over 25 gorgeous colours, and quite retro in their look (which goes well with the GBBO’s vintage shabby-chic styling), but they are incredibly robust, and well designed.

The body of the Artisan stand mixer is constructed of die cast zinc metal which is incredibly strong, and the mixer weighs 10.65kg. The weight of the appliance means that no matter what is being mixed, the mixer stays stable and still on the chosen work surface. The colour of the mixer is enamelled on, and not painted or sprayed as some people think. This baking on of the colour means that the finish is smooth, hard-wearing, strong and very easy to clean. It will also not fade or discolour in strong light, so it can be displayed on a window sill if desired.

The motor of the KitchenAid mixer is 300 watt, which surprises people as this isn’t usually very powerful, but this motor is a direct drive motor. Direct drive does not use a belt, so the motor is a lot quieter than those used in other mixers, and will last a lot longer. Direct drive is also very energy efficient as the motor only uses the amount of power required for the task in hand, and no more. Clever KitchenAid.

With a five year warranty, and an incredible selection of optional accessories and attachments (including pasta attachments and a sausage stuffer) the KitchenAid mixer will soon become any cooks best friend in the kitchen. The possibilities are endless, and your friends and family will not only be jealous of the beautiful appliance in your kitchen, but also be jealous of the tasty dishes you are able to produce with such ease.Other brilliant features of the KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer include the planetary action mixing which produces thoroughly mixed mixtures in no time at all, and the large 4.83 litre stainless steel mixing bowl. This bowl is dishwasher safe and features an ergonomically designed handle, and the large capacity is suitable for whisking up to 10 eggs whites. KitchenAid also manufacture a glass mixing bowl (5KGB) of the same capacity that can be purchased separately. This bowl is made of toughened glass which has measurements moulded into the side, and comes with a lid.

The KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer is available from Go-Electrical, and we currently offer a free gift with every one purchased. Visit our site for more information, and to buy.

 

 

Mason Cash – well known and coming soon

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Our catalog manager is always busy loading new, exciting products to the website, but we always get more excited when a new brand is going to be launched on Go-Electrical – and guess what, there is one heading your way shortly!

Mason Cash was established in the 1800’s and we are bringing the long established brand to our website very soon. Already a popular name in our retail shop, we decided we better share the famous bakeware with our online customers. We don’t want you missing out now, do we?

If you don’t recognise the name, you will be sure to recognise the classic cane mixing bowl, which has been used by generations of cooks – my grandmother uses one, and so does my mum, I think it is time I joined the clan of Mason Cash users! The timeless exterior design, and durability of the cane mixing bowl makes it an indispensable item for any cook. The signature cane bowl colouring (that is still used today) originally came from the natural colour of the clay in the Church Gresley area, but the iconic bowl is now available in different colours, such as red and blue.

You may also be familiar with the Mason Cash white pudding basin, which like the historic mixing bowl, is recognised all over the world. The Royal Christmas puddings are cooked in these simple but robust pudding basins – Mason Cash’s classic kitchenware is and has always been the choice of any discerning cook.

Keep an eye on our CookShop pages for the arrival of Mason Cash – expected in the New Year.
