Nothing smells - or tastes - quite like homemade bread and cakes. With Wright's bread and cake mixes, it couldn't be simpler - just add water (and oil where stated). In fact, it's so easy, it's child's play - literally!
Before you know it, the children will be making loaves, sticks, pizza or rolls, in any shape they want. They're fun to make and rewarding to bake, as they rise to the occasion every time. Suitable for vegetarians, they make perfect pizza bases, freeze well, are brilliant for bread-making machines and especially popular with children as they produce an authentic, traditional style cake, loaf cake, gateaux, slices, wedges or 16 individual cakes. Proving even more fun and imagination when it comes to decorating!
Throwing parties for kids can be challenging but in choosing a theme and planning food, refreshments, games and activities around the theme can be great fun for you all. The kids will be twice as excited, and you'll have twice as much fun planning. This theme could be: the beach, under the sea, pirates, tea party, the zoo, a safari, the farm; a favourite book, game, film or TV programme.
Rolls can be created from any Wright's bread mix in all shapes and sizes to fit nicely into the littlest hand and fill the biggest tummy! For a sea side theme, rolls can be made into shapes such as beach balls, suns, starfish and other sea creatures - like sea anemones - simply make a hole in the centre of a rounded piece of dough, slide a chopstick down the sides and sprinkle with sesame and poppy seeds. Why not go mad and colour the water, prior to adding to the mix, with food colourings for even more authentic looking creatures. No matter what shape, size or colour - you know it will work well and still taste great because it's Wright's - it's nourishing and filling enough to keep them out of the biscuit tin or sweet jar. Just don't tell them it is so nutritiously good for them!
Have fun with Roll Relays, loosely tie any competitors' hands behind their backs and get them to bite into a roll - on your marks, get set, go - they pass over the roll by mouth and the winning team is usually the quickest team of runners to cross the line - not to eat or demolish the roll - make up your own rules! Oh, I can hear you all now - roll up, roll up!!
Don't forget, kids love to create, and they'll think you're the greatest if you let them assemble their own refreshments - as a bonus, it will save you some work! Build-your-own mini pizzas with Wright's Premium White for thin & crispy and Wright's Ciabatta for the deepest deep pan. Get them to create mini sandwiches or create hedgehog rolls using Wright's Sunflower bread mix studded with sunflower seeds or almond flakes. Call this session - playing with your food - something they are not usually supposed to do!
