Very often, new food products are developed without a thought for the end users. When Snowflake brought out a colourful range of kids' baking kits, we decided the best way to put them to the test would be to bring a group of children into the Angela Day kitchen and let them bake them up for themselves.
They tried out the Vanilla Colourcups, Barbie and Barney cup cakes. Each box, costing less than R20 (prices vary from store to store) are eye-catchingly bright with well illustrated, step by step instructions.
Included are extra activities and surprise gifts.
What the Angela Day team liked best was that everything needed to complete the baking, apart from the wet ingredients like egg, oil and water, is in the box. Even the paper cups and icing decorations are there.
The best part for the children was being able to produce an end-product that looked exactly like the picture on the box, leaving them with a great feeling of satisfaction and achievement.
