Introducing... Cake Mart

The lovely people at Cake Mart recently got in touch with me and kindly offered to send me some items for review on the blog. This offer couldn't have come at a better time, as I'd kind of lost my baking mojo, so this was the perfect opportunity to get back into the baking game!

Cake Mart is an online baking accessories store, selling everything from paper straws to food flavourings! Based in Germany, the main website is www.meincupcake.de, but you can also shop via the UK version, www.cakemart.co.uk. The first thing I loved was how colourful and inviting the website was! Then, after much browsing, I finally decided on the items I'd like to review. The team packaged up my goods, then after a very swift delivery via DHL, the items arrived just a couple of days later!
Home baking accessories
House Of Marie Pack Of 20 15cm Striped Paper Straws/Cake Pop Sticks*, £2.79
I love that these are a multi-use product as they are paper straws that can also be used as sticks for cake pops! These are the first paper straws I've ever tried, and I can't wait to use them with smoothies and milkshakes. Paper straws are a much better alternative to plastic straws.
LorAnn Oils Super Strength Coffee Flavouring*, £2.50/3.7ml
I love coffee cakes and flavours, so I'm excited to try this out!  Due to its high concentration, it should last ages as only a few drops are needed. This would be great for adding flavour to icing. It's also suggested for use in cakes, cake pops, and ice-cream!
Städter 3cm Heart Cookie Cutter*, 64p
This heart cutter will be great around Valentine's Day, and should work well with biscuits and cookies. Due to the small size, this could also be used to decorate a larger baked item.
Städter 3.5cm Flower Cookie Cutter*, 64p
This pretty flower cutter should work well with biscuits and cookies. Again, due to the small size, this could also be used to decorate a larger baked item.
Städter Pack Of 6 18x7x5cm Single Use Paper Loaf Cases*, £3.51
With a gorgeous gold and brown design, I can't not make a banana loaf, can I?! This is a really lovely design and adds that luxe touch to your cake. Apparently there's no need to grease these as they have a non-stick coating, so I'm hoping that all works out!
RBV Birkmann Set Of 2 Silicone Cup Cake Cup & Saucer Moulds*, £12.81
How cute are these pink tea cup moulds?! I love the embossed design on the front. These are silicone, so are reusable, and they can withstand heat up to 240°C. These will be great when making pretty cupcakes for a special occasion!
Creative Converting Pack Of 12 Polka Dot Baking Cups*, £3.72
These pink polka dot cases are really pretty and will be great for cupcakes! It is also suggested that these can be used as ice-cream or snack tubs.

Be sure to keep an eye out over the coming weeks and months for lots of recipes which will be showcasing these lovely items, plus I'll be sure to let you know how well they performed.
I have a few recipes in mind, but please do let me know if you'd like to see anything in particular!

*items kindly sent for review purposes; all thoughts and opinions are, and always will be, my own.


  1. Wow I am so excited for this! Can't say the same for my bank account though!


    1. Haha! I can't wait to start using these goodies. The prices seem pretty reasonable, and there's so much choice! :) xxx
