Foodstirs Baking Kit Reviews

As a middle school cooking class teacher, I always gravitate to finding recipes that I can make with my children or that they can make independently. Cooking is one of those hobbies that I feel is important to start young so not only do they learn how to cook but also so they can gain confidence in the kitchen. Not to mention I get a lesson in patience and tolerance along the way. Foodstirs checks all the boxes. Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

With both of these recipes, I guided my children along the way but if they were to repeat the recipe they could easily accomplish the same result on their own. As an added benefit, making a sweet treat such as this is a huge accomplishment for them. Watching them revel in their finished product was a Mommy win for me as well.  Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

Foodstirs Reviews: Teddy Island Cupcake Kit

This teddy island cupcake kit is just the most adorable thing ever!

Foodstirs Baking Kit Unboxing by MealFinds

This kit comes with all that is needed to make the cupcakes and frosting, blue food coloring for half of the frosting, gummy bears for each of the cupcakes, and palm tree paper umbrellas for half of the cupcakes. To make the sand of the cupcakes you crumble an extra cupcake. All that was needed from home was eggs, butter, milk, and yogurt. My 11-year old twins made most of this recipe with my guidance and the final project was the most adorable sweet treat. The taste was amazing as well. The cupcakes were moist and delicious and the frosting was not overly sweet. Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

If I was searching for a cooking kit to inspire my children to get more comfortable in the kitchen I would definitely recommend Foodstirs. Gaining confidence in the kitchen needs to extend beyond simple meals. Encouraging children to also try their hand at baking is a lesson in following directions with the sweetest reward at the end. Foodstirs accomplishes that task with easy-to-follow directions and great tasting desserts. Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

Foodstirs Reviews:  Sweet Tooth Sugar Cookie Mix

This sweet tooth sugar cookie mix is a perfect standby cookie recipe for your children to use. All you need to include in the recipe is butter and one egg. The end result is a perfect sugar cookie that can easily be adapted to create holiday-themed cookies or you could add coloring or flavor enhancers (lemon zest, coconut syrup, etc.).  Foodstirs might want to create a monthly box with a cookie cutter to match the holiday or season and possibly some frosting or sprinkles.

This sugar cookie recipe is really easy to create and tastes amazing. If I knew I needed to make sugar cookies for a birthday party or school function I would definitely consider ordering this box. In addition, I think there is a great opportunity for Foodstirs to offer a sugar cookie box monthly that includes a cookie cutter or two that would include the holiday that month of the season. My children would love to receive a themed cookie box when their favorite holiday is approaching. Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

I had always been curious about Foodstirs baking kits so I was excited to try them out with my youngest children. These baking kits are perfect for those children that want to pursue baking but maybe are not quite ready to measure and sift. With a Foodstirs baking kit, you can feel confident in getting quality ingredients, with simple instructions, and a sweet reward at the end. Baking can be really stressful. Why not take away some of the guesswork and use a mix that will achieve a consistent result? Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

This is a great activity to do on Thanksgiving Day to get the kids involved in the meal and to keep them entertained.  Plus, they taste great!  We recommend cutting the icing with cream cheese to cut back on the sweetness as the icing was a little too sweet for our tastes. Save 12% with code MEALFINDS12 >>

Baking Tips:

  • For the icing, I substituted cream cheese for the yogurt and the icing came out wonderfully tangy and sweet
  • We added some sea salt to the top of the brownies to balance out the sweetness
