DIY Baking for Kids

Gourmet Cupcake & Ice Cream Sandwich Maker

— September 16, 2008 — Life-Stages
Jakks Pacific Girl Gourmet Cupcake & Ice Cream Sandwich Makers are reminiscent of the days of old. “Days of old”, not as far as teaching girls that “a woman's place is in the kitchen” but rather good ole’ fashion fun in the kitchen—before the advent of video games, the internet, and twenty-four hour cartoon stations.

Baking is not only fun but it helps build stronger math and science skills in a natural way because it involves measuring, estimating, and time management. The Jakks Pacific Girl Gourmet Cupcake Maker is the perfect way to spend the day with your daughter, or son for that matter, conversing while making delicious and yummy treats! The cupcake maker also comes in handy for sleepovers and rainy days.

The Cupcake Maker comes with a microwaveable container, Cupcake Froster, four flavored cupcake mixes and frosting, sprinkles, a mixing bowl, spoon, cupcake cups and recipe cards.

“You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!” is a phrase that, like Jakks says, never “gets old”—and I agree. Making homemade ice cream brings with it nostalgic memories and now it can be done, with a twist. The Jakks Pacific Girl Gourmet Ice Cream Maker is a fun and easy way for girls to spend time with their buddies which, in turn, creates memories that will last a lifetime. They come with molds and when your child has finished the recipe, you just “pop them in the freezer” for completion.

The Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwich Maker comes with a mold-cutter-press and spoon as well as Graham Cracker, Brownie and Chocolate Chip mixes.

Refill packs are also available for purchase on both products.

Not only would the Cupcake and Ice Cream Sandwich Makers be ideal “anytime” or birthday gifts, but with Christmas just around the corner, many little chefs in the making would surely delight in opening up one or both on Christmas morning.
