Baking with my girls is one of my favorite activities to do with them! Not only is baking fun and yummy, but there is a fantastic element of learning! Children will learn math and science principles, like counting, weights and measuring, solid to liquids, as well as social skills like manners, cleanliness, and turn-taking!
One of my favorite toys to play with as a child was Easy Bake Ovens! Even after so many years, Easy Bake is still around and just as popular. While the styles have changed, the overall idea of it hasn't. Providing many hours of fun cooking and baking for children of all ages and genders! You can imagine our excitement when Hasbro Canada so graciously sent our family our very own Easy Bake Ultimate Oven to review.
About The Easy Bake Ultimate Oven:
Bake up sweet and tasty treats with the EASY BAKE Ultimate Oven. No more light bulbs needed! Use the included mixes, pans and other goodies to whip up cake and cookie batter. Follow the directions to bake them inside the oven. The included recipe booklet has even more yummy ideas and recipes that are just the icing on the cake!
Oven comes with baking pan, cupcake pan, pan pusher, chocolate chip cookie mix, red velvet cake mix, pink frosting mix, rainbow sugar crystals package, paper cupcake wraps and instructions/recipe booklet.
The oven itself is made of a study plastic and is a bright purple color, appealing especially to girls. It included four mixes and the tools needed to bake, which of course we had to do right after opening the box. All the mixes were created in only a couple hours and fun was had by all.
Although these are great mixes and easy to use, they are also quite pricey to buy regularly. So onto the interest I searched for DIY ideas to make my own mixes. I was so excited to find a printable cookbook on Pinterest of homemade recipes for the Easy Bake Oven. Secrets of a Super Mommy did a fantastic job compiling the recipes and you can adapt them to your needs and tastes. She covers cookies, cakes, treats and icings, everything a little cook will need in their arsenal for treat making!
The Easy Bake family has many different mixes, tools and accessories to make your baking time with kids fun and innovative! We have made several of the kids and can't wait to pick up more to create! Daddy has been the recipient of many of the goodies created and has enjoyed all of them! Now with Mother's Day only a couple day's away, your kids could create you a wonderful array of treats!
If you are looking for a great idea for birthdays or Christmas, look no further than Easy Bake Ulimate Oven!
I give this toy a huge thumbs up and highly recommend it!
