On your marks, get set, bake! It's the perfect time to make your Christmas pudding

Wooden spoons at the ready, this weekend it’s ‘Stir Up Sunday’. Dating back to Victorian times, this festive tradition is all about getting the family in the kitchen five weeks before Christmas to stir the Christmas pudding and Christmas cake. It’s a messy, merry excuse for a bake-off and a cosy Sunday making the house smell like Christmas. What better way to spend a weekend? Stick a festive soundtrack on and make sure you’re fully tooled-up for the occasion with our edit of the best cake tins, aprons, and electric mixers. If you don’t already have a go-to Christmas pudding recipe, why not give one of these Waitrose favourites a try?
