These kits have been around forever and are easy enough to find in the US if you have a local Asian market. The Kracie Popin’ Cookin’ kits! I got one to do for Valentine’s Day, but then was lazy. So I did the kit today.
I actually tried one of these kits a few years back, when the instructions were all in Japanese. I know these are super easy to find now because the instructions on the box were all English. Heh.
Cut up the plastic piece to separate the parts out and follow instructions.
All of the pieces of the kit to mix things in. There is also a pink spatula to mix things with. All you need is some water!
Donuts are made, plus the tubs of icing and choco sauce, and crumbs and sprinkles, all ready.
They are pretty cute.
But what do they taste like? Imagine eating raw cookie dough or cake batter (I know you do this even if the instructions tell you not to!), but it is gummier and just unpleasant. That is what this is like. Unpleasant to eat. :< I ate one of the donuts just to remember how gross they are. Tried to eat a second donut but spit it out.
The frosting actually tastes okay. The pink strawberry frosting tastes like the stuff on strawberry pocky – that extra fake strawberry flavor. The little crumbs and sprinkles taste ok, but the doughnut dough is just gross. Especially the chocolate dough.
I really just wanted to decorate cute tiny donuts. I think there are similar kits out there, only instead of it making food, it just makes decoden plastic pieces, or erasers. So this is how I wasted $4 on some dumb nasty tiny donuts. I did buy better chocolate to eat for Valentine’s Day too though, so it’s not like it was a total loss.
