So I'm back trying more of the Artisan's Choice Products, only this time we're reviewing the Plain Crème Cake Mix. According to the website, you can make a whole host of items with this product, including puddings, cakes, muffins, tray bakes, and more, so with a variety of options in mind, I opted for muffins and cupcakes. As you know, I'm very thorough in product testing so let's run down our usual info of things you need to know. Packaging The product arrived in a large brown paper...
Having never used any of the cake mixes currently on the market, I was eager to try out and test Artisan's Choice - Chocolate - Extra Moist Muffin Mix to see how it faired with bakes I normally make from scratch. I was sent this item for a fair and honest review so let's start putting it through its paces. Here goes... Packaging This Extra Moist Muffin Mix is in a plastic bag that is easy to wipe down on the exterior, albeit the packaging is quite large for the amount of product that's in...
I have recently been sent these Castle Chocolatiers Chocolate Drops to be reviewed and had great fun testing them out to see what they can do. With the bag being 2.5 kg in weight, it's allowed me to make many products and discover how versatile the chocolate really is. Packaging What is the packaging like? The packaging consists of sturdy brown paper to the exterior and is silver lined on the interior to keep the freshness of the chocolate drops. Labelling The bag is clearly...
I'm all about having various Impression Mats or Embossers in my Cake Box, especially when they come in handy when adding definition and bringing creations to life. So when I came across these Embossed Moulds as they call them and how cheap they were, I wondered if they were really worth a buy. To be honest, I usually stick with my go-to places for cake supplies, but after reading some of the reviews on these, I thought for a second and then did a quick impulse buy. So after using them, I...
I have recently been looking for a Cake Stand to display my cakes in after baking and came across this Omada Design Tray with a Domed Lid. Packaging The cake stand came in a brown box with a plastic bag around the lid to prevent scratching or rubbing inside. I binned the exterior box and removed the packaging. I then washed it in hot soapy water and dried it with a piece of kitchen towel. (According to the product info online it is dishwasher safe). The cake stand is made from acrylic...
I recently made some smashable hearts and needed a mould to set them in. As you may be aware, many large heart moulds are on the market at the minute, and they usually come in a set with a smashable hammer. However, you can also buy the smaller mould that has smaller sized hearts. I opted for the smaller version because you get six individual hearts in the mould, thus giving you the option to do multiple colours and designs in one go. Delivery & Packaging When the mould arrived, it fitted...
Colour Mill dyes are the new fandangled export out of NSW Australia, and from what I'm seeing, people love them! According to the label, Colour Mill Dyes describe themselves as the 'Next Generation Food Colour' and to be quite honest, they're not wrong as they do exactly what it says on the tin, well the bottle anyway, but you get my drift! What's different about Colour Mill Dyes? The Colour Mill dyes are different from normal colour gels as they're oil-based, meaning they love anything...
These PME Candy Buttons are a great addition to your baking cupboard; not only do they have the consistency of melted chocolate, but the buttons are pre-tempered, so all you have to do is melt and go! How to use. How do I use Candy Buttons? Please place them in a microwavable container and melt in 30 seconds bursts until melted. The pack advises lowering the temperature to half-power or using the microwave's defrost setting; however, I tried this, and they take longer to melt. Other...
These miniature wooden hammers came in very handy when making my Smashable Hearts for Valentine's Day. So after perusing the internet for a while, I finally settled on these. Brand The brand I chose was the Toyandona - 12 Pce Mini Wooden Hammer/Mallets - Style 2. Packaging The mini hammers arrived in a small plastic parcel bag. Quantity There were 12 miniature hammers in the packet. Materials The hammers are made from smooth, sturdy wood. (Please note that the hammer's head is...
