We just love a picnic here at Roberts HQ. The sunshine, the great outdoors, those cute checked blankets and a hamper bursting with sandwiches, scotch eggs, salads and ice-cold drinks.

So, with National Picnic Week upon us, we’re taking a look at how to make your blanket banquet most brilliant.

First up, it seems it’s all about the location. Our fabulous friends at Fentimans have kindly compiled a list of the ten prettiest pic spots in Britain. Have they missed any off?

And when it comes down to transporting our treats, a picnic basket is a must-have. Not only will it put an end to squashed sarnies, but some in this stylish selection also come with cutlery and crockery. They even keep your fizz and soft drinks cool too!

For those looking to add a twist to the traditional spread, there are lots of ways to shake it up and make your picnic a little more special. Our paper-wrapped Bloomers provide the perfect blank canvas for the most scrumptious sarnies. You can find lots of recipe inspiration and ideas to ‘pimp up’ your picnic here.

And there’s even a £200 hotel voucher up for grabs from The Guardian for the top tip on picnic spots in the UK.

We think the picnic is a brilliant British tradition and, as with all things at Roberts, we love to take the traditional and give it a fresh new twist. So it goes without saying that we’ll be rustling up more tasty toppings and fabulous fillings and enjoying the outdoors for National Picnic Week.

What should we bake next?

Got an idea for something new and delicious? Then let us know... however wacky it might be!
And if we like the sound of it, we’ll try baking it in our Exploratory.

Tell us your dream bake!
