Before you pick up the phone to call a professional cake maker to create your child’s next themed birthday cake, check out Cake 2 the Rescue.

Cake 2 The Rescue kits are a fabulously useful resource as Dinosaur Bob was extremely quick & easy to make & they are very handy & useful for time poor Mum’s. The pricing of the kits is also reasonable considering the costs I have paid in the past 2 years for my Son’s Baptism, 1st & 2nd Birthday cakes. The kits also contain almost everything you need including a very handy pair of disposable plastic gloves for use while icing as the blue food colouring stains your hands, the most cutest little wooden rolling pin which my Son has now taken, added into his play Kitchen set up (purchased from IKEA) & cannot stop rolling various items in the house with it. He knew exactly how to correctly use it even though I hadn’t shown him yet what to do with it, a plastic cake lifter for when you are ready to cut the cake & eat it & a packet of Birthday candles. The only exception is some kitchen staples of eggs, milk & margarine.
All the kits ingredients were enclosed in a large box, well packaged, clearly labelled & the full colour detailed instructions were very easy to follow. I’m quite prone to changing recipes and/or not following them as they are usually too lengthy to make, hard to follow or require too many ingredients, but Cake 2 The Rescue is the total opposite of this & I was thrilled this was the case. I will certainly be looking into their designs in the future & not just for Birthday cakes.

When you receive your Cake to the Rescue box it has literally everything you will need to make the cake inside. Literally. Everything. It even has a disposable box that you cook the cake in (which means less washing up!!). The kit had everything from the cake ingredients (minus the eggs, margarine and milk), to the fondant, a little rolling pin, a cake board, a cake knife, the cutting templates and even a teeny tiny container of glitter. See I told you… they’ve got everything covered!
The actual cake making process is the simplest thing ever. And it comes with step-by-step instructions so you really can’t go wrong. The cake is baked in the disposable cake tin and is HUGE (which is actually really cool because it means that when you use your template and cut the edges off, you have heaps of cake to nibble on while you ice and decorate it!).
Next up is the really easy process of icing the cake. The icing is super smooth and pliable which makes it easy to spread. I did get a fair bit on the board while I was icing it, but it wiped off easily.
Then came the dreaded fondant (well I was dreading it anyway!). And yet it was seriously no problem at all – and that’s from a long-term fondant hater! I was really surprised how easy it was to use and I’m definitely going to try a few more little fondant adventures now that I’ve got my confidence up.
I absolutely loved how the cake turned out. It looked exactly like the example and was really quick and easy to make. It honestly only took 1 hour from the time I started cutting out the cooked cake to the time it was completely finished. That’s really good for a super pretty looking cake.

When I received my Cake 2 the rescue box/parcel in the post I opened the box and saw a box full of all the items you would need to make a decorated cake. It looked a bit overwhelming at first and I thought oh my goodness how am I going to make this?? Following the step by step instructions, the fondant was a bit tricky as I hadn’t used it before, but it still worked out. When I took a photo of my finished cake I was pretty happy with how it turned out. So was my 4 year old daughter, Zoe!

We opened the box to find heaps of amazing goodies to make our “soon to be” masterpiece! From the cake mix, the icing, right down to the rolling pin and even candles! You guys didn’t miss a thing!!! So cool!
I made the cake, let it cool, then put it in an air right container (as directed by your awesome instructions) for the boys to help me decorate the next day. I can’t tell you how excited they were! 🙂 I cut the cake shape using the template provided. I was nervous but was very surprised at how easy it was. Then each of my boys took turns icing it.
I then gave them each a job….The fondant! 😉 Mason made the gums and eyes, Sebastian had the blue fondant and cut out all the fins and tail, and Caleb cut out all the teeth. They did so well, I was very impressed
Then it was time to piece it all together.
Again, I was super nervous because I wanted it to turn out just like the picture but didn’t think I could pull it off considering I’d NEVER made a cake like this in my life! AND my cooking ain’t that crash hot lol! I’ve only ever ordered my boys cakes from professional cake making businesses, or made them cupcakes…so yeah….the odds were I was going to make a complete mess of this poor shark.
The instructions that were supplied were very easy to follow, even for me! We pieced Sharky together and the boys and I couldn’t believe our eyes!! We rocked it! I don’t think we could have done it any better! We totally surprised ourselves! Check out our delicious Sharky.. .
The boys were super proud!
We will definitely be ordering one of your amazing cake kits again! Not only was it easy to make and fun for the kids, but it tasted DELICIOUS! We give Cake 2 the Rescue 10 out of 10 and I have not stopped telling everyone all about your wonderful kits! So expect a few more customers 🙂
Wow! Didn’t they all do a fantastic job? Not only did they avoid the cost associated with having a cake professionally made, but they actually had fun too.
Hero status with their child for minimal stress! Priceless!
