This is the cure for my lost baking mojo. Oh yes, I think I found it. Turns out that what I needed was a baking kit. Bright Bakers‘ tagline is “Banish baking blues” so isn’t that perfectly apt for a lost baking mojo? So apt, very apt. Baking intimidates me so that I still had to get the help of my baker sister to try this product out. Nonetheless, my confidence level got a little boost because of this experience. Thank you Bright Bakers for sending me this kit! Banishing baking blues? More like banishing baking fears!
Bright Bakers is a gourmet cupcake kit. It’s got most of the dry ingredients you’ll need for your recipe. I think this is great for baking amateurs like me. No need to agonize in the grocery over what kind of flour to buy or what to do with leftover flour! The ingredients are pre-measured and pre-packed. This kit is like your sous chef!
My cupcake kit was for the Warm Cinapple recipe. The recipe called for wet ingredients and apples, which you have to provide for yourself.
Apple cinnamon cupcakes are delicious, don’t you agree? I couldn’t wait to find out how the recipe would turn out.
I’ve always been pretty skeptical about packaged kits like this. But hey, the proof is in the taste of the cupcakes! I wanted to find out if the cupcakes would be good.
Ready to go in the oven now! Our only source of confusion was how hot the oven should be. The recipe says 175 degrees Celsius, but at home we think in Fahrenheit. After my sister did some recomputing, into the oven the cupcakes went for forty minutes.
We followed the recipe to the letter. What we didn’t follow was the frosting recipe. We’re a bit iffy about using egg whites from unpasteurized eggs in frosting, so my sister decided to do a glaze instead.
They’re not as pretty as frosted cupcakes, but what did I say about my skepticism on baking kits? The proof is in the taste. You want proof? I’ll try to give you proof!
The cupcakes were incredibly moist and delicious. I really enjoyed them! I would’ve enjoyed them without the frosting or the glaze. They’re that yummy.
Bright Bakers has two more flavors: Choco Blast (Moist Chocolate Cupcakes) and Going Bananuts (Banana Walnut Cupcakes). I know I’m trying Banana Walnut next!
Each cupcake kit comes with:
- Ingredients for a batch of 9 cupcakes
- A reusable box for your finished cupcakes (should you choose to present them as a gift or in our case, use them as storage in the refrigerator)
- Icing Ingredients
- Cupcake Liners
- A cupcake baking handbook
- A cupcake insert
Each box is sold at Php 350 but this Valentine’s season it’s at Php 300 per kit. If you order 3 kits, you can get them for only Php 750.
I super recommend this baking kit for:
(a) baking beginners (any age!)
(b) baking with kids
(c) those who don’t bake regularly (ex. if you don’t use flour or powdered sugar regularly, best to use these pre-packaged ones insted of buying a whole box and letting it go to waste)
(d) those who’ve lost their baking mojo (a.k.a. folks like me)
I’m not blue about baking but I am afraid of it. What I like best about this kit is that it takes the intimidation out of baking. Baking mojo — we meet again!
