I like baking cakes and that has rubbed off on my seven year old daughter who loves to help whenever I mention that I will be baking. We were approached to review gifts for kids although we didn’t know what we were getting until it came to us and when the Little Pals Cupcake Baking Set arrived my daughter was ecstatic that she had her very own set to bake cupcakes.
The Little Pals Cupcake Baking Set included a pink plastic mixing bowl, pink spatula, 4 pink silicone cupcake cases, a purple icing squirter with 3 different nozzle tips and a wipeable cupcake recipe card and costs £14.95.
We decided to bake the cupcakes on the weekend following receiving it, mainly because when she my daughter gets home from school and done everything that needs to be done there is not really enough time to do anything else before bed.
She was eager to get started at 9am Saturday morning and started reading the ingredients we needed, got the scales out and made sure everything was ready for her.
I liked that the bowl was lightweight but not so much so it would slip and slid all over the place, it was perfect for kids.
We started measuring the ingredients that it said on the card although I decided to double up the recipe as my daughter wanted more than 6 cupcakes.
My daughter loved the mixing, she even tried the electric whisk with help and it didn’t take long until the mixture was ready so she spooned the mixture into each case and then put them in the oven and waited until they were cooked.
When the cakes were done I took them out of the oven and moved each to a cooling rack. Because the cakes are in silicone be very careful when moving them as they are extremely hot. Do not allow a child to do this.
We waited until the cakes were cold and once they were my daughter decided that she wanted ‘normal’ pink icing on them with sprinkles. So I mixed up some icing added a little food colouring and let her add it to the top of her cakes. She then sprinkled them with sprinkles.
My daughter was very pleased with her special cupcake making set she said it made her cakes the best ever!
It is also nice for her to have her own set because my mixing bowl in particular is very heavy and I worry she will knock it off the side and smash it.
I would definitely recommend this as a gift to a young girl who likes baking with her mum, and they also do Little Pals Cupcake Baking Set in blue so boys can join the fun too!
