If you think your child can handle the heat of making something
beautiful and delicious-looking yet inedible, then grab one of these
A novel take on the old fashioned felt picture boards, your child can attach the decorations to the cake, and really go to town on it with aesthetic creativity. A pretty garden scene, rockets in outer space, spots and sea creatures – there’s a number of themes to choose from.
You are provided with a plain coloured felt cake or gingerbread
house, along with 50 to 70 decorations (with essential drawstring bag)
and your child does the rest with many designs possible. Perhaps you have a budding cake artiste on your hands, who will come in very handy for future birthdays and special occasions.
Inspire the interest early, and you may never have to stay up until all hours baking ever again! It’s a great way of getting kids to observe colour and pattern relationships and talk about what works and what doesn’t and is fab for both free and guided play.
