Aldi scented candles range welcomes new cake flavours – sweet fix without the calories!

New Bake Off style candles are a 'star' buy this week!

A range of new Aldi scented candles are here to fill our homes with the delicious scent of baked cakes. Best part is, there's no temptation to eat cake as the scents are purely mimicking freshly baked sweet treats! All the aromas without the actual puddings.

The Great British Bake Off returns to our screens tonight, whipping up a frenzy of baking madness. Whether it's a sweepstake at work that requires cake baking, or merely a desire to recreate the themes each week – there's no denying the Bake Off signifies an increase in all things cake related for the foreseeable.

These quirky new candles are the perfect way to get your sweet fix, without overdoing the cake consumption or making a mess in the kitchen.
