Rainbow Cake Baking Set Review

We’ve reviewed products for Wicked Uncle before and they children have enjoyed playing with the Teacher’s Set we had from them. This time though we decided to review a baking set – Rainbow Cake to be exact.

Ever since we had the delivery, the children could not wait to make the cake. Last Sunday, we all got involved in baking and the finished product was delicious.

The baking set comes with everything you need to make the cake –

  • Cake tins
  • Cake mixes in different colours
  • Icing
  • Sprinkles
  • Jelly Beans

There are easy to follow instructions. You need to bake the different cake segments separately in the foil provided. All you need to do is add butter and eggs. You will need 500g of butter and 4 eggs.

It was very easy to make and took a little under an hour to complete.

The children helped so it was quick and we made up all four layers of the cake in one sitting. 

We did have to wait for the cake to cool a bit to complete the decoration.

 

I think I should have added more buttercream between layers but the children said it was perfect and I’ll take their word for it.

The Rainbow Cake looked rather lovely and tasted delicious too. In fact, the older two took some for lunch. I bet they were the envy of the lunchroom.

The cake was moist and tasty. It was also a good size and can easily be shared amongst 8 people as it is quite high too.

The set is priced at £16.95 and is great for any occasion.

It is a Candy Crush cake and came with some of the characters that you can add as toppers if you like. If you’re not a fan, you can leave this bit out.

 

We were sent the above set to review. All ideas and opinions are my own. 

Peppa Pig:My First Cinema Experience Review

On Saturday morning, we were up early to attend the exclusive screening of Peppa Pig:My First Cinema Experience.

Aeryn is a huge Peppa fan. From very young, she was stuck on Peppa Pig. It waned a little and then recently she started watching the videos again. So, she was thrilled at attending. We attended the fun in the foyer and got to meet Peppa and George as well as sample some tasty Peppa Pig cookies and cakes.

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience is NOT a movie. I don’t think it would work that way anyway as toddler attention spans may not allow for this. Instead it is more an interactive experience which is an hour long.

You have Peppa and George and their friend Sophie (who’s really perky) in a home environment for the interaction and then there are 9 episodes (all new). The episodes are interspersed between the interactive elements with Sophie and Peppa and George.

In the episodes, Peppa visits London where she and the class is driven around the sights in a double decker bus by the Queen. There is also a four part episode of Peppa’s visit to the outback.  Of course, the joke’s always on Daddy Pig.

 

The interactive elements are also fun with songs like the Hokey Kokey and Wheels on the Bus being sung so children in the audience can join in.

It is indeed a treat for Peppa fans.

There are also some new characters introduced like Policeman Panda (David Mitchell) and Mrs. Crocodile (Jo Brand).

It is about an hour long and will be perfect for toddlers this Easter.

We enjoyed it – yes, even the older ones.

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience will be released nation wide on the 7th of April 2017.

We were invited to a screening of Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience. All ideas and opinions are my own. 

Gazillion Bubbles Giant Bubble Mill Review

We’ve reviewed Gazillion Bubbles before –

It was so much fun and we used it all summer.

This time we were invited to review another product in the range and knowing the fun we had last time, it was a quick yes please?

The Gazillion Bubbles Giant Bubble Mill blows GIANT bubbles. Here’s more about the product.

Gazillion Bubbles give kids the ultimate bubble experience! The special formula used to create Gazillion Bubbles solution has been shown to create bigger, more plentiful bubbles, but for 2017 the experience gets even bigger taking its superior bubble solution to another level as well as new gadgets and gizmos that will create bigger bubbles than ever before. The Giant Bubble Mill is the ultimate large machine that blows giant bubbles! Coming complete with an 8oz bottle of Giant Bubble Solution, key features include a rotating wheel that blows giant bubbles continuously, there’s no pump and no waiting!

How did we get on?

I think we chose the wrong day to review this one as the bubbles blew away quite quickly because it was so windy.

 

The bubbles were quite big though. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to capture them on camera as they were blown away really quickly.

In terms of being big – yes the bubbles were huge.

It would have been great to have instructions included with it.

The only thing is that the mixture finished very quickly – I suppose it is because of the size of the bubbles?

However, you can purchase more of the mixture from retailers like Amazon so that you can never stop having fun with bubbles.

Since we love bubbles, I am going to give this another try and buy some more bubble mixture as I think it would be ideal for the summer. It would be especially great for a party outdoors.

I shall give you an update as soon as I’ve tried it out again.

The product is priced at £19.99 and is available at all major retailers.

 

Schleich Smurfs House Review

For all those fans of those little blue people, you must be very excited that the Surfs movie – The Lost Village is finally due for release in the coming week.

To get us even more excited, we were sent the Smurf House with Papa Smurf and Gargamel and Azrael from Schleich recently.

The house needed assembly and this was part of the fun. I was surprised at the quality of the product. I know one normally gets a great quality from Schleich but this one was expceptional.

The doors and windows had a slightly rubberised texture so it was easy to fit all the parts together. There was a lot of attention to detail like all other products of the brand.

For example the shutter and then the outer window.

 

The door is also a working door and can be opened and closed with a key.

I’m glad that one is able to actually get Papa Smurf (provided with the set) into the house as it is quite large.

The house is a replica of the Smurf houses with it’s characteristic red mushroom roof. There is also a chimney and I particularly love the window in the roof with the flowers growing on the ledge.

It is perfect for imaginative play and with the new Smurf’s movie about to be released, it will be in great demand.

The Smurf house is priced at £29.99

I do feel that this is a tad bit on the expensive side but looking at the quality of the product one can perhaps justify the price.

It is available at all major retailers.
