Review: Brand Castle

I’m kind of what you would call undomesticated lol, I can’t cook very well can’t remove stains, that sort of thing. These are, however, things I want to be good at. So when I got the opportunity to review a couple products from Brand Castle I was really excited! They sent me the fairy cookie kit in the above picture, which can be bought online, as well as their Luscious Lemon Cupcake Mix, which can be purchase during the spring at Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, TJ Maxx, and a few Bed Bath and Beyonds. Since I made the cupcakes first I’m going to review those first so let’s start with a few pictures(there will be quite a few in this post lol).
My Pretty Cupcakes!!! Chanel Holding Her Cupcake Getting Ready To Eat The First Cupcake
Ok, these are my pictures of my cupcakes and Chane with a cupcake. I didn’t take pics making them because that’s pretty boring, it looks like making any other cupcake lol. They come in a very pretty little box with mix for the cupcakes, mix for the frosting, sugar crystals, and the butterfly picks. Chanel wasn’t much help making them, shes pretty good at spoon licking though lol. They were not nearly as cute as the ox but OMG THEY TASTED AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can not stress this enough! I am going to stock up on these because they taste so damn good, they lasted less than 12 hours and I didn’t finish them until 8pm. Now some cookie making pictures…

These are some pictures of Chanel decorating her cookies. These ones turned out almost absolutely nothing like the pictures on the box. Fist off the fairy cookies are really big so trying to get them on the pan after you cut them out is hard and they warp easy. Plus cut out cookies are just pains in the ass anyway, and Chanel kept trying to steal the dough. Then when it came time to frost them I followed the instructions to a T and it really didn’t turn out well. I think it needs a little more water and a little less powdered sugar because it was thick and hard to spread and didn’t end up smooth plus it took all night to get hard and it didn’t taste quite right. Chanel had a lot of fun though painting them so it wasn’t a total waste. Here is a picture of the cookies I painted(Chanel did more table painting then anything lol)

they are kind of ugly lol. I think the cookies one is better supervised by someone a little better at cooking than I am but all in all we had a lot of fun!!

*I received product samples to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.*
