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

Both fun, and functional, the Intro to Baking 17-piece Set from Handstand Kitchen includes all the cooking tools one needs to make cookies, cupcakes, and more sweets. This is an actual baking set, not a toy, that comes with one spatula, one pastry brush, one mixing spoon, one loaf pan, seven cupcake baking cups, one rolling pin, one whisk, and five recipe cards. All the accessories are kid-sized but still completely functional. Made of wood, silicone, and metal, they're colorful, and fun to look at. The recipes include classic favorites like Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Vanilla Cupcakes, as well as Fresh Strawberry Frosting, Apple Crisp Crumble, and Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies. Of course, all of the ingredients will need to be purchased separately, and there are some basic kitchen items needed from home for some of the recipes such as measuring cups, and spoons, a mixing bowl, and a hand mixer. This set offers a way to introduce kids to baking, while bringing the family together in the kitchen.

What To Be Aware Of
The packaging says this is a 17-piece set. Our set actually included 18 pieces in the form of an extra cupcake baking cup.

To make the included recipes, you will need some basic kitchen items such as a hand mixer, measuring cups, measuring spoons, a blender, and a knife. The ingredients are not included for any of the recipes. Adult assistance is required when using the oven but this set was designed to encourage parents and children to bake together.
