The Cupcake Kit

I’ve seen a lot of little gift cooking kits popping up over the past few months, and The Cupcake Kit is one that catches my eye every time I see it in a book or gift store. The kit comes with a 64-page book on cupcake recipes and decorating techniques, a pastry bag, a variety of decorating tips and 250 cupcake liners in two different sizes. Everything is packaged neatly an in easy-to-wrap box, perfect for giving as a gift to a baker.

The kit is a good way to start off for bakers who may be young or inexperienced, but want to improve their decorating skills. The fact that it comes with a pastry bag and tips, not to mention that the shot book covers a lot about decorating technique, is great. The pastry bag and cupcake wrappers also make it a good gift for more experienced bakers. I don’t know too many home bakers who wouldn’t appreciate getting a whole bunch of new stuff to play with in the kitchen! It also makes a good “gift” for yourself, since it is a pretty good value for everything that you get.

In addition to the equipment, the book is very good, and though it contains on 24 recipes (compared to some super-sized cookbooks that seem to have hundreds), they are easy to follow and produce good results. There are ideas for every day cupcakes and for fancier cupcakes/decorations in here, so the book and kit will probably come in handy on more than one occasion.

    I admit, it’s more the decorating than baking of the cupcakes that scares me! Might have to check this out.

    Cupcakes are so popular now. In fact, early this morning a cup cake “CAKE” set was being advertised. You can bake a full size cake in the shape of a cupcake. It was pretty neat..especially if you bake for kids parties or you have children that would really enjoy a HUGE cupcake. Pretty cool.
