Looking for a gift or stocking filler for your little baker this Christmas? Well look no further as today I am sharing a great little baking kit with you from BKD. BKD are an award winning children’s baking company offering fun, messy baking events across London. Following the success of these events they launched a collection of kids baking kits. They are great time savers for busy parents who want to get creative in the kitchen with their children. There are 8 designs – including a Gingerbread Christmas Biscuit Baking Kit and Gingerbread Man Biscuit Kit – and I was excited to try the Gingerbread Christmas Biscuit Baking Kit from BKD with my own mini Jamie Oliver and Mary Berry.
Gingerbread Christmas Biscuit Baking Kit from BKD
The Gingerbread Man Biscuit Kit comes in a cool black and white cardboard tube which contains: three cookie cutters, the gingerbread mix, white icing, four colours of fondant and some sprinkles.
My son loves to bake so would have been happy to make the dough but I decided to make the dough whilst he was at school. BKD Baking Kits are made with natural flavourings and the dough came together really well and only needed the addition of butter and Golden Syrup. I set it to chill in the fridge and as soon as he got home and changed we removed the dough from the fridge and put the oven on.
He had fun rolling out the dough and choosing which of the cutters to use.
Before I knew it he had cut out lots of biscuits using the three cutters provided in the kit and we baked them in the oven according to the instructions.
Then came the fun part – decorating them with the fondants, icing pen and sprinkles.
By this time Little Sis insisted on getting involved too. I opened up all the packets of fondant and we had fun mixing the colours and using our cookie cutters to cut out the shapes we needed.
We gently pressed the fondant onto the biscuits then decorated them with the sprinkles. The instruction booklet contained some great tips and I loved watching the children use their imaginations to create some wonderful biscuits. We all thought our gingerbread biscuits looked pretty professional.
They tasted delicious and have a great balance of spices. The children have been offering them to all our visitors who have been very impressed with their baking and decorating skills.
The baking kits (tubes) have a RRP of £19.99 and the mini baking kits (boxes) have a RRP of £9.99 which is a great price for a Christmas gift or stocking filler.
