How cute are those Unicorn Treat Pops (and the little face that is so proud of them)?! We had such a good time with this fun baking kit, and I am here to break it all down for you! Foodstirs offered to send me one of these boxes for Addie and I to make together, and I am so glad that I said yes! (They have several Fun Baking Kits to choose from!)
Activities like this are so fun for me, not only because I am a baker and love involving my girl in cooking, but also because I can build her confidence. As much as possible, I love to allow her to do things herself. Plus, Foodstirs is a “junk-free” company, so everything is organic and mama doesn’t have to feel guilty!
The little stickers for the pops were a huge hit! Anyone with a 3 year old knows that stickers are life right now.
Each baking kit comes with a handy little card that tells you what is included in your kit and also what tools and ingredients you will need to gather beforehand.
Addie can’t read yet, but she was so excited looking at the pictures and helping me figure out what we needed to round up!
Sitting on the kitchen counter cooking with me is her favorite. I pray she holds onto these memories and precious times together for life. What a special thing FoodStirs offers, making this easier on parents that are not bakers by nature!
First, we gathered up all of our supplies. Honestly, you don’t need too much! Most everything I had on hand, including the extra ingredients. My Stoneware Bar Pan is my go-to for stuff like this, and was perfect for this kit!
Next, I let Addie add all of the ingredients to the mixing bowl herself (I helped crack the eggs).
While the cake baked, we went ahead and started making the icing. It was so easy, guys! You just add the yogurt and butter to a bowl.
And add the icing mix in, mixing well again!
Then, you use the included plant-based dye packets to color your icing! No questionable colorings here!
Once we got our icing done, it was time to take the cake out of the oven!
I was a little impatient and flipped it out of the pan a little sooner than I should have, which caused a tad bit of cracking. Really not a big deal though, because we had way more cake than we needed! The scraps were fun to eat while we worked.
Now, for the fun! Once the cake is fully cooled, you use the Treat Pop container to cut rounds out of your cake.
Our cake was still a teeny bit warm, so we went ahead and set up the pop stand next! Really easy. You tape the cute little enclosed card to the top of the box, and then use scissors to make holes for the treat pops to stand! Don’t skip this! It was really cute, and also made life so much easier during assembly.
Now that all of the parts were done, it was time to assemble! We had a blast making a mess and tasting as we went.
If you aren’t baking-inclined, let me show you how easy this part is. Seriously. So easy! You just push a cake round down into each pop container:
Add another cake round:
Another layer of icing, in a different color:
Top with a final cake round. We had a lot left over!
Last, you swirl icing on top. I used a piping bag and a wilton star tip. Now, here is where the baker OCD got the best of me. I am not sure if our butter was too soft or what. But the icing came out a bit thin and did not hold its shape how I wanted it to. No worries, because it tasted delicious! I truly think letting it chill in the fridge for a bit, and maybe adding a little extra powdered sugar would likely have fixed this issue.
As you can see, they kind of “wilted” a bit. I also let Addie do the swirls, so my perfectionism had to take a back seat.
The final step was putting the sticker “faces” on them, which was a huge hit!
She had so much fun. I had so much fun. And Daddy and Lillie had a blast enjoying them with us!
Overall, I was incredibly impressed with this Unicorn Baking Kit! It was super easy to follow, even if you are a novice baker. An older child could probably even do it themselves, with some supervision. These would make such a fun and unique gift! Plus, check out some of the other kits:
If you need an idea to entertain your kiddos, or just want something fun to do to connect, go ahead and order yourself one of these kits. We will be doing more, for sure!
Also, check it! They have a whole line of Keto-friendly sweets! Yes, please!
