BKD Mini Bakers Club Review

May 15, 2018

 

We love baking! There’s nothing more exciting than getting our hands completely gooey with batter and creating (mostly) edible goodies to share. I don’t think we do this nearly enough. And it’s usually because we won’t have the right stash of ingredients in the cupboard at the time when ‘let’s bake’ is happily yelled. But help is at hand! The clever bods over at BKD have come up with a brilliant plan to help us mums out. It’s the BKD Mini Bakers Club – a monthly themed, and personalised children’s baking subscription box. We were so excited to get our hands on one of these to show you what it’s all about.   

 

 

Special Delivery from BKD Mini Bakers Club

Little Button was thrilled to find a package had been delivered for her when she got home from school. Its bright graphics really stood out and having her name on it made her feel extra special. At first glance the box did look quite compact and I couldn’t see how the baking subscription could possibly fit. But it had, and inside we found everything perfectly stashed away.

What’s Inside

We received the spring themed BKD Mini Bakers Club Subscription box, and the contents certainly reflected this. Inside the box, Little Button found:

 

-A Mini Bakers Club guide to being creative in the kitchen; this contained a step-by-step guide to making hot cross bun cakes and supporting worksheets and fun facts for an craft activity.  

-Beautifully packaged (dry) ingredients to make hot cross bun cakes.

-A spring craft activity sheet and materials.

-A full recipe card for the hot cross buns cakes, in case we wanted to make more another time.

Ready, Steady, Bake!

Using the guide, which was specifically designed with mini bakers in mind, Little Button set about gathering all the things needed to make the hot cross bun cakes. She enjoyed ticking everything off the list as she went.

She was then able to use the very simply laid out instructions to work out how to get her bake on. Genius! We especially liked this feature as it encouraged Little Button to take a chance and try things out for herself, while being supported by a grown up.

After plenty of pouring and mixing, the cake batter was ready and looked brilliant. *There was a bit of cake batter eating going on behind the scenes, but even so, there was plenty to make the 10 hot cross bun cakes as planned.

And here they are!

While they were baking, Little Button decided to look over her baking instructions and give things a bit of a colour in.

And here are the finished hot cross bun cakes! They tasted amazing and were quite luxurious too. I wouldn’t have typically attempted these myself, but after seeing Little Button whip up these goodies, I’m super keen to give the full recipe card a go.

Spring Crafts

In addition to the edible makes, the BKD Mini Bakers Club subscription box also contained a spring themed craft activity to make cress heads! #Eggciting.

This could probably have been done whilst the cakes were cooking, but we saved these for another day.

Again, the instructions were very easy to follow and the results were terrific.

BKD Mini Bakers Club Subscription Box Options

There are a number of different options available for the subscription boxes, with little savings and perks depending on how many months worth you wish to purchase. As a starting point, expect to pay £9.99 for a monthly box, and you can cancel at any time. We are looking at signing up ourselves and will most likely go for the 6 monthly option at £53.94, which gives the 1st box half price.

 

 

Our Overall Thoughts

We LOVED it! The idea is so clever and it definitely gave us a bit of a poke in the (right) direction of the kitchen for some hands-on quality family time.  We can’t wait to see what’s inside our next box!

    I feel like we miss lots of fun here in South Africa this looks ridiculously fun wow

  5. What a great idea. We are often wanting to bake yet haven’t got everything we need, not just ingredients wise. My son would love these boxes and he loves colouring and making things as well. I’ll have to give them a try thanks

  6. Stephanie says:

    My children love baking so these would be great for them. Giving them a new baking idea each time

  7. This sounds like a brilliant idea for getting younger kids baking. My son loves “helping” me to cook so something like this in a year or two will be great for introducing him to baking as well!

  8. Jen says:

    What a great idea! My two love cooking and this would be a perfect birthday present.

  9. Melanie says:

    This is such a fab bake kid to get kids into baking…Love this x

  10. Rachael says:

    It’s the unwritten rules of baking that some cake and batter mix gets eaten before it gets anywhere near the oven. I love that there are activities and colouring parts to do while the food is cooking – a genius idea.

  11. Kerry norris says:

    This looks like a lovely subscription box. I’ve never heard of it before. My eldest loves cooking so she’d like this

  12. I haven’t heard of a subscription box like this before – what a lovely idea! Kaz x

  13. That’s a great idea. Anything that helps instigate family time is cool by me.

  14. Oh this looks so fun! I mean I am a terrible baker and my son would undoubtedly throw the ingredients across the room but it “looks” fun! I love the colouring while you wait…. No one likes to wait. #dreamteam

  15. Sophie says:

  20. RawMum says:

    I can’t wait to bake with my little one. Already done some with her in the sling. I was chatting her through all the stages! Sadly I bet the subscription boxes might not be suitable for dairy free sufferers. They do look great #dreamteam

  21. Wow, that’s awesome! The bun cupcakes look delicious and the cress heads look brilliant too! I’m so looking forward to when Autumn is a little older and can do things like this with me. #DreamTeam

  22. What a brilliant subscription! Kiddos getting to help in the kitchen, learn a bit of responsibility without realizing it, and have a little time with a parent. I love the fact that it comes addressed to them and that there are activities to keep them engaged while things are baking. What a wonderful gift for your little button!
    Thanks you for sharing this brilliant idea at #DreamTeam! I’ll definitely be looking this one up!

  23. Tash says:

  26. Sometimes, baking or cooking with the kinder can get overwhelming. Hot oven, sharp knives, mess… This looks fun and manageable for all! I love this. Thanks Annette! #dreamteam xoxo

  27. Soffy says:

    I absolutely adore baking and hope that Little A grows to as well and this kit is just perfect to tempt those little hands #dreamteam

  28. This looks so much more interactive than the baking classes I had at school when I was a child! the whole box seems to be a great family activity. I think this would make a great gift for my little cousin who has already been showing great interest in cooking and baking.
