EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Cool Baker Magic Mixer Maker is a toy stand mixer that lets kids make no-bake brownies and cupcakes. It comes with the mixer, a packet of cake mix, a packet of brownie mix, two sugar sprinkle packets, two icing bags, two icing mix packets, a measuring spoon, a spatula, two icing tips, a cupcake tray, a brownie tray, a mixing bowl, a sprinkle stencil, and a cake display stand. You'll also need butter, margarine, or non-stick cooking spray.

There is no baking required. Just pour the mix into the bowl, add water, and turn the handle on the mixer to combine the water and mix. Pour your batter into the tray and refrigerate it for 15 minutes. Add water to the icing mix to create either pink or brown icing for decorating your treats. Pour sprinkles into the sprinkle stencils and press your iced treat on top to have a heart, diamond, or flower made out of sprinkles adorning your treat.

Everything needs to be hand-washed when you're done. Do not put any parts in the dishwasher, microwave, or oven. All the tools store in the top of the mixer.

Is It Fun?

This is an easy-to-use food activity kit for aspiring bakers. We made the brownies, and they tasted pretty good. Certainly not like brownies made from scratch or even brownies made from a boxed mix, but for kids who want to make and decorate brownies and cupcakes on their own, this is a quick and easy way to do it. Plus, the portions are small, which parents will like.

Who It’s For

The Cool Baker Magic Mixer Maker is for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

This can be a messy activity, so make sure you're using this in an area where leaks and spills can easily be cleaned.

The sprinkle feature was cool, but didn't turn out so well for us. It might help if you place your iced treat in the fridge to harden the icing just a little bit so that the sprinkles stick better to it.

The food in this kit contains wheat, milk, and soy. It may also contain egg, peanuts, and tree nuts.
