I received a subscriber notecard from Astralia about interactive baking. Of course I had to see this for myself. The slurl brought me to an event that was new to me, Crystal Heart. I’m no sure how long it has been around. Lately, I have not been going to a lot of events. This place had many of my favorite designers. Anyways, back to the interactive baking. I made my purchase and teleported home with my goodies.
Back home I unpacked the everything and started placing it all out in the kitchen. This set contains a toaster oven, mixing tools, cookie sheet with cookie cutter, the all important recipe book, and the finished dessert tray full of decorated cookies. This cute set is for role playing baking. Those with toddlers would have a great time baking cookies with them. To work this set you place your items where you want them. Then touch the recipe book for step 1: cookie cutting. Step 2 is fresh baked cookies that have steam coming up from them. Step 3 has them placed on the dessert tray. Each step disappears and appears as you go through them.
This is the first time I have seen this from Astralia, but apparently there are a few other recipes at the store. I went there soon after I was done baking and found a bbq set and one more that has breakfast/lemon cake/and steak all in one recipe set. I am probably going to go back and get the set with the cake. This is pretty ingenious of Astralia. The set was fun to set out and the items look great. I would love to see the recipe book turn pages as you move to the next step. One could hold it or set it on a cookbook stand.
