Product reviewed: Handstand Kitchen Spring Fling Daisy Cake Making Set

I love cooking and baking with my kids. The Handstand Kitchen Spring Fling Daisy Cake Making Set was the perfect way to spend time with them and work on baking skills! From practicing math to perfecting how to crack an egg, baking offers kids so many different learning opportunities.Get Kids Baking with This Delightful Daisy Cake Set -

This three-piece set comes in the cutest packaging. Inside a fun spring-themed box, you’ll find a silicone daisy cake mold, silicone spatula, silicone whisk and a recipe booklet. The large cake mold is made of a turquoise silicone and the coordinating tulip silicone spatula and whisk make preparing cake super easy.

The bright colors and fun design really play into the spring theme and got me excited to test the products. The first thing I’ll tell you is do not throw away the little booklet that comes inside like I did! It has some really helpful tips for using and caring for the silicone cake mold. The first time I tested it, I had not read the tips — and let’s just say, it showed. After regrouping and realizing I’d overlooked said tips, I tried again with much better results.

I made a brownie recipe first, then a few cake recipes, and here are a few things I noticed:

  • This cake mold is more suited for the lightness of cakes. The brownies didn’t show the flower shape as well.
  • Make sure to grease the mold with either butter or oil and really rub it into the crevices (don’t just spray it with oil).
  • Place the silicone mold on a baking sheet to give it stability as you put it in the oven and take it out.
  • Let cake cool completely before trying to remove it from the mold.

This pan would be great for anyone who’s into specialty baking products or looking for a fun way to get kids excited about baking. My daughter and I had such a fun time playing around in the kitchen with it!
