If you have a Peppa Pig fan in your family, then there's now an easy way to combine baking and your favourite pink animal, thanks to the range of Peppa Pig cake, cookie and biscuit mixes.



I hadn't set out on buying any cake mixes on my recent trip to Coles, I'd wanted to get some more self raising flour and shredded coconut, but my simple mission was saboutaged once my 3 year old caught a glimpse of the Peppa Pig mixes. Yes, I could have just said no, but life is short and I love baking with my son, and if Peppa Pig cupcakes are the ingredient to a happy afternoon, so be at. Priced at $4.34 they work out to be considerably more expensive than our normal bake from scratch cupcake, but you do pay a premium for anything character related.



The pack is simple, and inside you'll get a cake batter mix that you need to add an egg and some water to, in addition to some icing (just add water) and some Peppa Pig cake toppers. It's an incredibly easy mix, so much so that aside from cracking the egg, my son pretty much made the whole lot himself, just following my instructions and supervision. The pack does include pattypans too, but ours had been crushed into the bottom of the packed and have now been banished to our craft box. They absolutely wouldn't have been a great baking aide, unless that is you like completely randomly shaped cakes; no judgement.



So, it's not rocket science. You make up the cake batter and then you bake the cakes for 12 minutes. You take the cakes out of the oven, and once they are cool you can ice the cakes and top with the Peppa Pig or George topper. The aim is that the chocolate icing creates a muddy puddle, with (I'm assuming)some artistic license and imagination.



All in this is a very easy pre made cake mix, that will guarantee some fun baking and a cute little afternoon tea. If you were planning a Peppa Pig themed birthday party, these would go down a treat. I didn't personally find the cake mix was sufficient to make 12 cakes, so we split ours amongst 9 pattypans instead. This worked out just fine.

At $4.34 it certainly isn't an everyday treat, but for special occasions, why not!

Our pack was purchased at Coles where they also stocked Peppa Pig chocolate cookie mix and a sandwich biscuit featuring Peppa Pig also.

We recently tried the Peppa Pig chocolate cookies andI wasn't impressed. Theyonly made 8 (not 12 as packet suggested) and they were way, way to sweet.... bummer, cause I wanted to love them!
Their portion sizes do seem a bit out....there's no way on earth this pack can stretch to 12 cupcakes!
