We have been glued to our screens watching the Great British Bake Off, we love watching what happens each week and especially love the showstoppers. A few weeks ago we reviewed some of the products from the Real Baking range, there was the Great Baking Set and the Cake Pops too. But this week we decided to use the Cookie Kit and Chocolate Pen.
Opening up the Cookie Set we found…
There is 14 cookie cutters, a silicon mat, a plastic guide and a rolling pin too.
Setting to work we made out own cookie dough, there are no ingredients included in the sets which is good because it means you can buy the ingredients you like to use. This set would work amazing with gingerbread, but today chocolate cookie mixture was the one for us.
The plastic guide that comes included is great for little people to use, you put the dough inside and then use the rolling pin to roll it out, which means you get the perfect thickness for your cutters.
The girls loved the set having 14 cutters, this meant that there is plenty to go round a few children.
You can cook your cookies on the silicon sheet provided, but we made so many cookies, and the sheet isn’t massively big that we used our own larger baking sheet too. Emma did love putting her creations on her very own baking sheet, which I popped in the oven to cook with the rest.
Our cookies came out and cooled, and then it was time to decorate them! You get a piping bag included with this set, but we decided to just go in with a spoon, icing and smarties!
You can buy your own Cookie Kit from all good toy retailers including Toys R Us, the RRP is £14.99. We loved using it!
Next up was the Chocolate Pen! This one is perfect for creating a showstopper!
Included in this set is bags for melting, chocolate pen, 4 nozzles, clips, 3 mould trays and instructions. You do not get any chocolate provided in the set, but we were sent some jummy Divine baking chocolate which is perfect for using in this.
You melt the chocolate using the plastic bags provided, and then popping them into the pen. The pen requires 2 x aaa batteries, so don’t get caught out by not having batteries around if you are buying this as a present. The actual pen is quite easy for children to use, but a little fiddly for adults to put together with the nozzles and clips, but Brooke loved using it!
We created some great models that the girls adore!
We also done some great freehand drawing too!
Overall I am not sure the pen is a product for us, but we love the moulds that come included. Again, you can buy this set from all good toy retailers and it has an RRP of £14.99.
