The Easy Bake Oven is a kitchen gadget that lets kids cook and bake without having to get their hands dirty. Kids love to use it because they get to be in control of the cooking process, and adults like it for its easy cleanup.

All you do is mix up your favorite frosting recipe with some water according to the instructions on the box, then pour into the Easy Bake oven pan and pop in the light bulb. In about 15 minutes you’ll have a delicious cake or cupcake! It’s perfect for birthdays and special occasions – and can even make an awesome Father’s Day gift!

The only downside? When we opened our new kit we found out there wasn’t enough frosting included so we had to go buy more at the store. The store-bought stuff is a lot more expensive, though, so we decided to create our own Easy Bake Oven Frosting recipe.

It requires fewer ingredients than the pre-made stuff and you can use all kinds of colors! We made some red for Valentine’s day, green for St Patrick’s day, blue for my favorite holiday (Halloween) and white to go with any cake color – it even makes chocolate taste better!

Frosting for Easy Bake Oven Desserts

1/4 teaspoon Vanilla

In a small bowl, mix together shortening, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk until smooth and creamy.

Spread 2 tsp of frosting on top of 1st layer. Add 2nd layer and continue frosting.

This frosting also goes very well on mug cakes too!
