Me Myself and Us: Cookie and Cupcake Kits (Closed)

Our daughter is 33 months old now and she really enjoys helping out in the kitchen. Whether it is cooking, baking or just making lunches, she is always pushing over a chair and getting right in there with us. We are always looking for new things to make meals and treats fun.

I was recently introduced to Me Myself and Us, a Canadian distribution company that specializes in crafty, seasonal and educational baking kits. They have a wonderful selection of cookie kits and cupcake molds that add an extra nice touch to desserts for kids of all ages.

I received the Blooming Cupcakes Kit to try out and review. The kit contains six silicone flowerpots that are used to bake the cupcakes. It also comes complete with almost everything you need to make the cupcakes; chocolate cupcake mix, vanilla frosting mix, daisy and green sprinkles and an icing pen. Little Bird and I garden together and I thought this would be so much fun to incorporate a growing theme in to her dessert.

We spent Easter with some good friends of ours and I made a cake for the occasion so instead of using the cupcake mix on this batch, I used the extra cake mix to make little ‘plant cakes’ for the kids. Each pot had a ‘fill line’ so that you don’t pour too much mix in the molds. The cupcakes were extremely easy to make and were a big hit with the little ones.

The instructions that came with the kit were really easy to follow and it includes some instructions that kids can do or help with on the back of the package.

These kits would also be a lot of fun for parties, you can either prepare them yourself ahead of time, or pre-bake everything and let the kids decorate their own to take home if they are old enough. The kits provide so many different options from pudding, Brownies, ice cream and Rice Crispy Treats.

I have a couple of pictures here of my creative cupcakes. I made some flowers out of chocolate and molds and added some mint flavour, and used the green sprinkles included in the package to resemble the beginning of grass. I finished the flowers off with the pink icing pen that was included in the kit. Check me out:

Since Me Myself and Us are the Canadian distributors of these fun kits, you can like them on Facebook to learn about new stores near you (both online and store fronts) that carry these items.

Or – you can win one here!

    Blooming Cupcake kit.

    What a wonderful way to encourage gardening and nature than make it into a snack! I can see a lovely Sunday afternoon planting seedlings with my two year old, then taking him inside and planting a sweet treat!
