Real Baking Sets for Kids

Updated on September 3, 2014

Baking Kits for Kids for Your Little Chef

Many toddlers love playing with pretend cooking and baking kits, but once your child is about 5 years old, he or she may start to show interest in making real treats. That's when good quality baking sets for kids make it easy for them to enjoy the baking process without feeling frustrated by the big tools that adults use.

I've let my daughter help me while making cupcakes and cookies, but my baking tools are a bit too big for her tiny hands to master the techniques.

That's when I decided to get her some mini baking sets that are easy and safe for her to use but also real and can actually do their jobs when trying out easy recipes. The baking pans can be placed in a real oven and everything comes out just right!

Her baking kit has helped her turn out quite a few impressive treats like cookies, cakes and even mini pizzas, and I know it has helped increase her interest in other types of cooking too. It's an excellent way for her to keep occupied as well.

What to Look for When Choosing a Kid's Baking Set

There are subtle differences in various kid's baking kits that you should watch out for. Unless you're buying the set for pretend play, the label on the box should mention that the pans are oven safe. Many sets come with stainless steel pieces that are only meant for pretend playing and are good for use with play dough.

A few cookie and cupcake baking sets come with baking mixes and pretty icing mixes. These can be very sweet and not the healthiest for your kids. The sets may be just fine to use, but you may want to use your own tested but simple recipes.

Some sets come with simple recipes too and these are usually better than using pre-made mixes.
