You can now buy a complete cake kit from Craft and Crumb. So we had to test it out! 😀
Let’s talk birthday cake. Every year I make the kid’s cakes. I’ve been doing it since their birth. I have always loved making cakes, and actually, I am far better at cake then at anything else. Probably because I enjoy eating them more!! 😀 I even have a few cake recipes on here like my Blackberry and apple crumble cupcakes.
Pre-children, I bought a few birthday cake books and poured over them, planning what I’d make my future children. I have made a pigs in a mudbath cake, a sun cake that was rainbow inside, a superhero cake, a unicorn cake, I’ve made cakes for friends, cakes for family but you know what? It’s always stressful! I don’t know why I put so much pressure on to have homemade cake but I do and I invariably find myself up at midnight trying to paper over cracks and holes with butter icing the night before the party. (I’m great at this by the way, you often can’t tell how I have had to use 6 times the amount of icing because my cakes rose too unevenly to fix!)
The other thing that always happens is that I end up forgetting something vital and having to pop to the shop three times and then make do because they didn’t have the right sprinkles etc.
This is where Craft and Crumb step in! They make complete cake kits to create the most amazing homemade cakes but in a simple and stress free way! They have a huge range of cakes and it all arrives in a box with literally everything you could ever need in it. From the cake mix to the icing sugar, the cake pans and the decotations, it’s all in there. All you need to do is add butter and eggs and follow the clear and easy to follow instructions. Best of all, they also make a gluten free version which is brilliant as it always scares me a bit when I need to make GF cakes!
We were sent the rainbow unicorn cake to try. Very apt! I set to work with my little boy and we had a whale of a time!
As long as you have a mixer and enough eggs, butter and milk, you’re good to go!
I went for the rainbow unicorn kit because, well it’s me! But there are loads to choose from. Check out the website here for the full range, I can’t promise it won’t make you hungry though!
We were so impressed with how easy the kit was to assemble and it tasted wonderful as well. They really do make it simple to make professional looking cakes!
