Plug - - BAKING - BY SAMANTHA BREN­NAN

You may be the type who can’t walk past a bak­ery win­dow without pop­ping in for a sneaky cus­tard tart, or per­haps you have an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of food mag­a­zines and cook­books marked up with recipes for cakes, breads and pies you can’t wait to try. The good news is, it’s easy for new and ex­pe­ri­enced bak­ers alike to cre­ate their favourite cafe treats at home, if they have the right tools and ap­pli­ances.

Sun­beam Pie Magic tra­di­tional 4 up

PM4800 $84.95

Sweet and savoury hand-held pies are yours for the bak­ing with the Sun­beam PM4800 Magic Tra­di­tional 4 Cup Pie Maker. This smart ma­chine comes with two pas­try cut­ters – one for per­fectly sized pie bases, the other for tops – to make as­sem­bling your snack as easy as pie. Sim­ply pre­heat the ap­pli­ance and then press short­crust pas­try cir­cles into the deep-dish, non-stick plates. Spoon in your cho­sen fill­ing (think left­over bolog­naise, chicken and leek, or per­haps stewed ap­ple), and top with a round of puff pas­try. The results – in as lit­tle as 12 min­utes – are perfect, flaky hot pies for lunch or dessert.

Pas­try Cut­ter

The spe­cial cut­ter is for cut­ting the pas­try tops and bases of your pies. The small cut­ter side is for the pas­try top and the large cut­ter is for the pas­try base.
