Celebrations are always a fun occasion to put together, but what is the one thing that everyone remembers about a special day? The food! Kids big and small are able to pin point how great a party was by the fun and festive the food served at the event was. I am not a great a home baker. There are so many things I cannot execute the way I map it out in my head. Luckily, Betty Crocker wants to lend a hand to home bakers to help personalize a special occasion. They have introduced edible image baking kits this summer for both cookie and cake decorating! These kits are a new product innovation for Betty Crocker and are exclusively available in Canada.
What is great about both of these kits is that they are easy to use. All you have to do is peel edible images off of the sheet they are attached to, then add them to your cakes and cookies! Want to see how easy it is for kids to get in on the baking and decorating action with Betty Crocker? Take a look at Betty Crocker’s “Celebration Cake 3 Ways” Video to find out!
Celebration Cake Mix & Decorating Art
My daughter loves being a little baker. Whether it is savoury or sweet, she likes to pitch in to put her mark on any treat we make. My little girl was so excited to find out she was going to help me make these delectable desserts. She could not wait to get started.
The Celebration Cake Mix and Decorating Kit allows for homemade cakes to have that unique touch with a variety of fun, edible image decorations. Each kit comes with vanilla cake mix and three sheets of designs for home bakers to choose from to make their special creations. Some of the edible designs included in this kit are:
- Cars; and
My daughter had fun adding the ingredients into our bowl to make our cake. It only took a few minutes to go from simple ingredients to having our cake batter in the pan ready to bake.
Once both layers were out of the oven and cooled, we were ready to put our cake together. To help gussy up our sweet treat, we were given a container of Betty Crocker™ Whipped Fluffy White Frosting.
I was really surprised that this frosting was so light and whipped for being in a container. I was tempted to whip out a spoon and devour all of it on my own.
It took no time at all for us to frost both layers of our cake. It went on so easily. I was worried that I would not have enough to cover our treat. This crisis was averted as there was more than enough to get the job done.
Special Edition Despicable Me 3 Cookie Mix & Decorating Kit
My kids are also HUGE cookie gobblers! They enjoy helping out in the kitchen to help us whenever we bake a batch of cookies. Betty Crocker also sent us their Special Edition Cookie Mix and Decorating Kit for my kids to try so they can create their own delightful treats to add to a special occasion. This kit include Despicable Me 3 themed edible image decorations and cookie mix. These edible images can help kids be a part of the baking and decorating processes with parents for a fun kitchen activity anytime.
This kit made my daughter feel as though she was a seasoned baker. It was great that there were only four ingredients needed to mix these cookies together.
I also was pleased to see that it only took a few instructions to go from box to cookie sheet.
My little took the lead when adding the edible images. It was an easy task to peel the images off of the sheets and place them onto each smashed cookie dough ball.
After removing them from the cookie sheet, we were so pleased with the end result. Each of the kids were divvying up which cookies were going to be for them to eat.
To celebrate making these yummy desserts, we decided to throw a small tasting party.
Once our dining table was set up, the kids excitedly put on their party hats and gobbled up these treats. My daughter was so happy to try the cake she helped to decorate that she forgot about using utensils to enjoy it.
The treats we made using the Celebration Cake Mix and Decorating Kit and the Special Edition Cookie Mix and Decorating Kit were a gigantic hit with our family.
It took baking and decorating our treats to a new level of fun. We can’t wait to for the next special occasion to happen in order to use these kits. It will come in handy to personalize that day for our family!
