Let your little one feel like the next Master Chef with this modern-styled Easy-Bake oven. The oven and its accessories are the perfect sizes for those little hands to easily mix and beat together the different ingredients.
We know that baking is half the fun; the rest lies in decorating! And that’s why each of the premix packets comes with unique decorations. The Red Velvet cupcake premix has two different frostings; pink frosting and chocolate frosting; the cupcakes aren’t complete without some sprinkles!
Your little chef can choose between dazzling stars or delicious rainbows, and if they’re feeling creative, a mixture of both. The chocolate chip and pink sugar cookies also come with frosting to make their own cookie sandwiches. With chocolate or lemon frosting as their middle, make for an oh-so-yummy treat.
Don’t have a sweet tooth? Not a problem, the Easy-Bake Oven comes with some party pretzels mix, including the yummy nacho cheese sauce mix! A party isn’t complete with sweet snacks; that is why they have included some delicious cookie and cupcakes mixes. Whether your little one loves chocolate chips, sugar cookies, or red velvet cupcakes, the choice is theirs.
As much fun as the Easy-Bake oven, it does require some adult supervision. It is only recommended for children older than eight years. It is still an electrical device that uses a heating element to bake the goodies.
Good thing it’s simple to use, and most importantly, clean. Each treat has different instructions on baking them; luckily, the instructions are written clearly and are simple enough to follow.
Preheat the little oven and mix your ingredients. Using the pan tool, carefully slide the baking pan into the baking chamber, make sure that both metal doors are shut.
Here you will see that the pan tool also doubles as the spatula; this allows your little one to safely push the pan through the baking and cooling areas without burning themselves on the hot tray.
Depending on the instructions, the cooking times may vary. When the baking is done and using the spatula again, push the tray into the oven’s cooling area. Once your treats are cool enough to eat, use the spatula to lift the pan and carefully remove it from the oven.
With a bit of frosting and sprinkles or even some salt, your delicious treats are ready if you chose the pretzels recipe!
Always remember to unplug your Easy-Bake oven after using it. When it’s thoroughly cooled down, you can clean it by wiping the oven with a damp cloth.
