We couldn't wait to get cracking with this one and get baking. I do love baking cakes, especially the kids birthday cakes and on special occasions. Now my cakes are never going to be Pinterest superstars - I don't apply filters to my photographs I generally just tell it like it is - however, I was pretty sure that with the right tools my cake would be amazing, and I wasn't wrong!
So we decided to bake a normal sponge cake with butter cream and jam filling. A very simple recipe (I used a packet mix Ssssh don't tell anyone.) As is always the way when you decide to do these things I opened the fridge to find just one egg and I needed two so Warren had to steal an egg from his Mum as it was Sunday night and no way were we trekking out all over to buy eggs. And so, reality checked, we started the baking!
The kids were sort-of interested in the baking, but it wasn't long before they disappeared. Once the sponges were out, burnt bits cut off and filling applied, it was time to get creative with the tools we had been supplied with.

That was when the kids all of a sudden came running back in and I found myself tripping over each of them as they all wanted a go with the rolling pin and the "Plasticine." (Icing) *sigh*

|Everyone getting stuck in helping out - sort of!!|
I also loved smoothing the icing onto the cake - the tool to do this really does work and this is definitely the smoothest and best-finished cake I have ever made.

As you can see from the photos - we really enjoyed baking and using the Cake Boss items. They really helped us and made the finished cake a lot more professional-looking than it would have been otherwise, I'd definitely recommend checking out their website for any cake-baking items http://www.cakeboss.co.uk

I was sent the Cake Boss supplies free of charge for the purpose of this review. All words and views are our own.
