You may know by now that I’m not that big on baking. I quite like it and I’m not usually tooooo horrific at it when I give it a go! But it doesn’t really happen all that often. I used to find it very stressful trying to bake with little twins making a mess everywhere and getting bored after two minutes! It’s much easier now that they’re 5 and their attention span is slightly longer than that of a gnat. But I still like to find shortcuts to make it even easier! So I was delighted when Little Star Baker got in touch and offered to send us one of their pre-prepared eco-friendly home baking kits.

About Little Star Baker home baking kits
Little Star Baker home baking kits are handmade with 100% eco-friendly packaging. They contain everything you need to make delicious bakes, with pre-measured ingredients to save you a trip to the supermarket.
We were sent an Over The Rainbow biscuit kit to test out and review 🙂
What’s inside the kits?
The twiglets were really excited when we received our home baking kit, especially when they spotted the rainbow sprinkles! I loved the little note inside – a lovely personal touch!
Inside our kit was:
- Rainbow cookie cutter
- Icing mix packet
- Biscuit mix packet
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Rainbow colouring activity
We needed to provide an egg and some butter to bake the biscuits.
Baking our rainbow biscuits
Baking our rainbow biscuits was really simple (even by my standards!) and the instructions were easy to follow. The twiglets loved whisking the butter and biscuit mix together.
The colouring activity came in really handy while we waited for our dough to chill!
We did have a minor disaster when we tried to roll out our biscuit dough, as we realised it was way too sticky. Little Star Baker were really helpful when I DMd them on Instagram and told me how to rectify the problem. We realised it was because I’d used large eggs and put too much egg in the mixture!
Anyway, once that was sorted (by adding more flour and leaving to chill again), we managed to roll out the dough and cut out our rainbow shapes.
Decorating our rainbow biscuits
Once our rainbow biscuits were baked, it was time to decorate them! We had icing, rainbow sprinkles and marshmallows for the clouds. It was pretty messy but lots of fun! And I had two small hoovers who cleaned up any sprinkles and icing that dropped on the table anyway! 😉
Our finished rainbow biscuits
So here are our finished biscuits – what do you think?! I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out 🙂 The twiglets were too!
And they tasted delicious! 🙂
