Although they do mostly the same thing they aren't interchangeable. If you need both you may get both. Sorry :)

Baking powder often contains bicarbonate of soda, but it also contains other raising agents. Bicarbonate of soda is a raising agent too, but they each work differently and have different dosages. Definitely pick up both, just to be sure to be sure. Can I have some cake for being sooooo helpful? :innocent:
