OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Kids can become pastry chefs with the Real Cooking Mini Tarts Pastry Set. Using the included ingredients and tools and adding a few fresh ingredients from home, kids can make and bake their own mini tarts.

The first step is to make the dough, and this is where you will need fresh butter and eggs. The kit provides flour and white frosting mix. When the dough is mixed, use the rolling pin to roll out the dough, cut it into eight rectangles with the dough cutter, and place four of the rectangles into the silicone baking tray inside the mini tarts press. 

The next step is filling the tarts, using water and the pink frosting mix. Once you've poured the filling into each tart, cover it with the other set of dough rectangles.

Then you're ready to seal the tarts. Close the mini tarts, press and push hard to seal and trim the tarts. Remove the silicone baking tray and bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 17 minutes. 

When the tarts are ready and have cooled completely, decorate them. Mix the remaining white frosting mix with water and use the pastry bags to spread the frosting over the tarts, write messages, or create fun designs. Then decorate with sprinkles.

There are even instructions for making more tarts from scratch so that you can continue to use the tools in the kit for more baking fun.

Is It Fun?

This is a great way for kids to have their own cooking tools and help them feel more confident in the kitchen. Unlike purchasing pre-made tarts, with this kit, kids get to decorate their tarts however they want and there's a satisfaction that comes with having made something yourself.

The taste of these tarts isn't as sweet as pre-made tarts, so kids who are used to the boxed versions may be a little disappointed. 

Who It’s For

The Real Cooking Mini Tarts Pastry Set is for ages 6 and up with adult supervision. Kids with an interest in cooking will enjoy making their own breakfast pastries.

What To Be Aware Of

The instructions make it seem like you're supposed to cut eight rectangles from one half of the dough mixture, but we had trouble even getting four rectangles from one half. For our tarts, we had to use the entire dough mixture. Other than that, making the tarts was easy.

The kit includes a mini tarts maker, a silicone tray, a rolling pin, two pastry bags, a dough cutter, a spoon, flour, pink frosting, white frosting, sprinkles, and instructions. You will need to provide butter and eggs from home. 

This requires an oven to bake.
