The Greens cake kit comes with a sachet of cake mix which you need to beat together with an egg, some softened butter and water (measured using our new Russian Doll measuring spoons from Find Me a Gift - more on those another time) , then just spoon into the cases that are also included in the kit. 10-12 minutes in the oven and they are baked, and after a few minutes of cooling down are ready to decorate. The kit also includes 2 sachets of a fruity jam type sauce to go inside the cakes and a sachet of icing mix which needs to be beaten with some more softened butter and water. The packet for the icing also doubles up as an icing bag which can be used with the icing nozzle included so even if you don't have fancy cake icing equipment you can still pipe the icing on the cakes without the need to go out and buy equipment.
Hanna did a great job, with only a small amount of assistance (with the beating) from me (apart from the extra cakes that I had to make). The instructions on the box were clear and easy for her to understand and the piping of the icing was all her own work and I was very proud.
The Brownies loved the cakes but the biggest surprise of all is that fussy little brother Jack ate (and enjoyed) a whole one!
