Two of Little Miss A’s favourite activities are baking and colouring. So, when Cake Angels told me about their new range of baking kits created in collaboration with Crayola, I knew they would be a huge hit with creative Little Miss A.
Having tried out a selection of fab Cake Angels baking goodies in the past too, I had high expectations!
There are three kits in the new range which we were sent to try out.
First up we had a go at making the Crayola Gingerbread cookies. In this kit you receive a gingerbread mix, a heart shaped cookie cutter and some icing to decorate your biscuits. You also receive an instruction leaflet for creating different animals and bugs.
The instructions on the back of the pack were easy to follow and we managed to make 7 cookies from the mixture. Little Miss A enjoyed helping with the mixing and cooking of the cookies.
When it came time to decorate them she did need a little help. We made up the coloured icing and she dipped the cookies in to cover them. She did find the icing tubes a little difficult to squeeze though so I gave her a helping hand.
The cookies were really tasty and we all enjoyed eating the various creations we had made together.
Next we tried out the Crayola Rainbow Sprinkles Cupcake Kit which contained a sponge mix and cupcake cases together with icing and decorations.
Again, the instructions on the back of the packet were easy to follow and we made 8 small cupcakes from the mix. Little Miss A really enjoyed icing the cakes and adding the little rainbow balls on top.
The cakes went down really well as an after tea treat! They are a good size for children and are not too sweet.
We have tried a few baking kits over the years and I would say these are some of my favourite. I find some, cake kits in particular, can be a little funny tasting, however, these were delicious and could pass for completely homemade. They are really easy kits for children to help with and the addition of the bright colours and decorations make them really fun too. We would definitely purchase these kits again.
As well as the two baking kits we also received the Crayola Fondant Icing Modelling Kit which comes with brightly coloured modelling icing to decorate cakes and cookies.
