So when I'm ready to bake, I have fun tearing into the contents of the box, there's a bowl, a spoon, a spatula, some sprinkles (awww!) and then two cupcake liners. Pause. What? Surely this $20 kit doesn't just make two cupcakes. Yep. Red Velvet and strawberry. Are they kidding?
The kid and I commence to baking one of the two. Easy enough, add water, mix, microwave 30 seconds, let stand for one minute. Cool. Mix frosting, with water again, frost and decorate. How'd it taste? Well, it was no Magnolia Bakery but it was edible and the kid loved it.
Still though, upon further inspection of the box, one would really have to read very carefully to see that it only makes two cupcakes...and in fact, the side of the box features four cupcake liners. Shame on them. I only say that because many children will probably get this on Christmas and let's say you have three kids in the house. Well, better hope they are good at sharing. Oh, and the name of the kit is called "Girl Gourmet." Lot's of little boys love to cook, they'd be better off marketing their product as "Kid Gourmet." And lastly, don't make it so hard to order extra mixes and frostings. With all the pamphlets enclosed, no where does it say where to place re-orders. I finally found the information on the box after I dug it out of the trash. So A++ for getting me to buy the product with your slick and fancy packaging, but D on integrity in advertising.
Must be good, head first dive.
