Our baking and DIY kits have all been thoroughly tested and given the taste tick of approval, however there are a lot to choose from so we understand making a final decision may be tough. To help you select the right kit to try at home or give as a gift, we’ve compiled the following list of things to consider.
You don’t have to have the latest, fancy equipment to be successful in the kitchen, but sometimes certain tools will help you achieve the best results. For example, using a stand mixer will help for recipes that require creaming butter and sugar, beating egg whites to form a meringue or for recipes with heavy, dense mixtures. The right sized baking tin can also make a huge difference.
We assume you have some basic equipment available in your kitchen, however for each of our recipes we highlight specific items we recommend you use. You’ll find this list in the Recipe Highlights section in the product description for each kit.

Melt and mix recipes are a great place to start. But don’t let your level of experience stop you from trying new things! There’s only one way to become a better baker and that is to practice, practice, practice. We provide a brief overview of the method and techniques used in the Recipe Highlights section in the product description for each kit.

Reading a recipe in advance and planning your baking adventure is one of the most important elements of success. There’s nothing worse than getting started and realising you’re missing an ingredient, you haven’t brought your ingredients to room temperature, you need to chill your dough overnight, or you need to cool something completely before icing it.
We’ve included a guide for how long we believe a recipe will take in the Recipe Highlights section in the product description for each kit.
