Anyone who knows me knows that I love everything having to do with baking! From whipping up a batch of butter cream frosting to filling homemade puff pastry shells with French cream, I live to dazzle and delight with my tasty creations. When I was younger, I’d spend hours waiting patiently for my Easy Bake Oven to produce cookies and cakes, but I knew there was more to baking than mixing pre-made powder with water. If only the Cupcake Decorating Studio Kit from Smart Lab Toys was around when I first started baking, I could’ve had an all-in-one baking kit with detailed instructions and recipes!
What’s to like?
The Cupcake Decorating Studio Kit is perfect for those just starting out in the world of tasty pastry, or for those seasoned veterans who have had years of Easy Bake Oven experience like I did! This decorating kit is jam-packed with all of the accessories that young chefs will need to craft cute, miniature cupcakes as well as a how-to book to strengthen one’s knowledge of
icing flavors, fondant, cupcake cones, and “tricks of the trade” to add that extra special touch to every masterpiece. I love that while each page features a different decorating technique for young bakers to learn and master, it also includes bold illustrations and helpful hints for those days when simple decorating isn’t on your mind!
But wait – what sorts of delightful decorating tools come with the Cupcake Decorating Studio Kit? This mouthwatering, creative kit includes a froster, 3 frosting tips (flat, star, round), stencil holder with 4 pre-cut stencils, mini cutters in 3 shapes (circle, flower, shell), tweezers, cake comb, and rolling pin with raised edges (oh my)! My favorite accessory in this kit is the cake comb because when you’re finished “combing” your icing or ganache, there are cool patterns left behind that will have your friends and family asking “how did you do that?”
Best of all, the how-to book also includes instructions for creating an entire cupcake scene using all of the decorating tips and tricks that you’ve practiced so far. Use your culinary skills to craft a large green dragon with a forked fondant tail and tongue, take a walk in the garden with gummy worms and crushed cookie dirt, or build a magical winter wonderful from coconut shavings – the possibilities are endless!
At the end of the day
For $24.95, little bakers 7 years and older can create edible masterpieces that everyone will love with the wonderful Cupcake Decorating Studio Kit. Look out Chef Duff, in a few years there will be a new Ace of Cakes in town!
This staff review was brought to you by me, Kendra, Copywriter at Growing Tree Toys. Here’s a little more info (in my own words) about my time with the company:
I have worked at Growing Tree Toys for 3 years as a copywriter for our store’s website, where I get to play with demo toys to learn the “in’s” and “out’s” of all our products. Since I can’t really justify buying endless amounts of toys for myself, my family and friends are pretty much guaranteed to get presents from Growing Tree Toys – and no one is happier about that than my little 9-year-old sister! When I’m not tinkering with toys, I read every book I can find – and currently I own approximately 200 books!
