Renshaw Simplymelt
Professonal baking supplier Renshaw – which has been in business since since 1898 – has launched its very first range for home bakers and I was invited along for a sneak preview and to sample some of the goods.

The new range comprises four products – my personal favourite being the Simplymelt flavoured toppings (£1.39), which can be melted in the bag in a microwave and used for pouring over shortbreads, flapjacks and crispy cakes. It also looks ideal for decorating cake pops without having to bugger about melting chocolate or candy melts on the hob. There are five flavours – white chocolate, milk chocolate, toffee, strawberry and yoghurt – most of which I tried and found to be dangerously tasty.

The range also includes Ready to Roll Coloured Icing (£1.25), which comes in black, red, green, pink, blue and yellow, along with Snip & Swirl ready to pipe icing (£2.49) – available in strawberry, chocolate and vanilla – and edible icing ribbon (£2.49), which is perfect for making fancy borders on celebration cakes.

The baking supplier has also launched Renshaw Juniors for kids which includes Magic Melting Icing (£2.09) which comes in raspberry, blackcurrant or tropical flavours along with coloured sugardough (£2.59) and flavoured sugardough (£1.99) which is basically edible Play-doh.

Alongside the new range, Renshaw also launched the mybakes.co.uk website for keen bakers and you can also find them on Twitter and Facebook.

The products will be available at Lakeland, Hobbycraft, Morrisons, Bako BFP and Culpitts and you’ll also be able to pick them up in Asda and Tesco from August 2011. Renshaw gave me a stash of the products to try out, so I’ll be coming up with a few recipes for them in the near future…
