I’ve mentioned before what huge YouTube fans the kiddywinks are, most of their iPad time is spend watching toy “unboxing” or blind bag opening and it was here that Imogen first discovered Yummy Nummies.
Yummy Nummies Mini Kitchen Magic are food craft kits that include everything needed to create teeny, tiny, tasty creations that are quick, easy and safe to make and require nothing but water and a microwave! There are a number of different Yummy Nummies kits available in three cagegories Dinner Delights, Candy Shop and Bakery Treats. Imogen was sent Cookie Creations and Mini Pizza Party from Character to try out for herself.
First up we tested out the Mini Pizza Party. Inside the box is a plastic mixing/baking tray which will need to be cut in half, a mixing spoon, measuring scoop, three sachets (dough, sauce and cheese), instructions and a mini pizza peel to present your creation!
Firstly you need to measure the right amount of dough mix and water in the larger section of the mixing tray and then spread the mixture evenly into the four compartments of the second tray. After a few seconds in the microwave you get a spongy pizza base. Let it cool for a minute and then squish the bases down in the tray.
Next the pizza topping, the sauce will need to measured out and mixed with water and then spread on top before sprinkling the cheese on top to finish it off before presenting it on the cute mini pizza peel.
The texture of the mini pizza is slightly odd but they smell and taste very much of pizza and Imogen and Joseph enjoyed eating them just as much as they did making them!
The Cookie Creations kit works in pretty much the same way and contains both white and milk chocolate chips as well as the cookie dough mix with a miniature paper bag to present your cookies in.
Again these smell and taste strongly of cookies, even before the cookie dough is microwaved, but they are best enjoyed whilst still warm or they can become chewy.
Imogen thoroughly enjoyed making cookies and pizzas with the Yummy Nummies Mini Kitchen Magic kits the main appeal being that she needed little to no assistance from me and when you’re an independent 7 year old this is a huge thing! Imogen has asked to try other sets and whilst they’re not going to replace a proper baking session in our house it’s a quick, relatively mess free and tasty alternative so we’ll certainly be giving them a go.
The full range of Yummy Nummies Mini Kitchen Magic are available on the Character website here with prices starting from £6.99.
