Review Batter Daddy & Batter Babies - Review & Giveaway (3 Winners)

When family stops by, we love to bake. It makes for good times and fun photos. This weekend with my niece over, we decided to do some baking using the Kimber Cakeware Batter Daddy and Batter Babies we received from Kimber Cakeware.
We chose our batters


My niece is the baker so I asked her to write this review while I took the pictures.
First things first, it's an amazing and innovative idea although it's a little bit more difficult to put in practice than you would initially think. I suggest that you would work with (at least) one other adult because you're going to be going back and forth between two different batters and you don't want to just leave that sitting for minutes at a time. Also, when it comes to pouring in the batter it's much easier to have someone to hold the Batter Daddy or the Batter Babies while you are holding the bowl or manning the spoon.

One thing you *must* do is size your cupcake pans and any other baking pans that you are planning to use. You really want to make sure that the Batter Babies and Batter Daddies sit flush against the bottom. Another thing that you should take into consideration is the thickness of each batter that you will use. If you're planning on using box recipes, like I did, or if you're going to make from scratch, just make sure that they will each be roughly the same consistency. That sounds a little complicated but it's quite simple, all you really need to do is compare how much liquid will be going into each batter. If you have a chocolate cake that requires 1/2 a cup of oil but a vanilla cake (or in my case, confetti) that needs 1/3 a cup of oil, you will encounter the same problem I did. The chocolate cake will run smoothly but the confetti cake will be much thicker. This can be an issue when it comes to baking times because one cake will need maybe only 2-3 minutes less. It may not sound like much but have you ever tried sitting in a room that was set to 350 degrees for two minutes?



This is not a project that you can just dive into because you have a craving for chocolate and vanilla cake. You do have to take a few minutes and chart your plan of attack. When you do though, it's totally worth it!

What I Can Tell You: While she was doing the cupcakes and dealing with my kids who had a million questions, I tried to help by filing the pan holding the Batter Daddy!


I couldn't do it without her help! I held Batter Daddy and filled the chocolate side. The I picked up the other bowl and started filling the other side until I was at the bottom. There was no way I could have scrapped the bowl, held the bowl and the Batter Daddy so I called for assistance. My niece scrapped and all was well.

We love the results and so did the kids! This is perfect for those who want to do something special but aren't "bakers".
