I was slightly dubious when the box arrived and as gorgeous as it looked, I was surprised I needed to get so many ingredients myself, like butter, milk, cream cheese and an egg, especially as the kit costs £8 and only makes 6 cupcakes.
Well that all soon changed when we made them...
We had so much fun! The ingredients were clearly labelled and the instructions easy to follow. This is so important when baking with children, as they want to grab, poke and throw everything around. It has been one of my better experiences of cooking with them.
Once we had finished baking and decorating the smell, the size of each cupcake and the range of toppings (edible glitter, sugar shapes and little hearts) made it seem a quality product at a fair price suddenly.
So as much as I wanted to sulk at having to get extra ingredients in, I just could not; it really is worth it for a special occasion or a fun activity to do with the children. But it’s almost criminal seeing the children lick off the icing and leave the cake, as they do with most cakes. I think I cried a little inside.
These are really really nice cakes and taste delicious with a moist sponge. The only thing missing was someone to do my dishes afterwards!!!
We score these cakes 4/5
