Dr. Oetker, the UK’s leading home baking brand, is launching a third variant to its Spectacular Science! cupcake mixes. Stretchy Slime follows the success of its Crazy Colour Changing Icing and Squashable Jelly Bubbles which proved popular with families all over the country.
Families can now learn the process of gelatinisation and how liquids and solids react to create stretchy slime with the brand new Spectacular Science! Stretchy Slime Mix. While the science is happening, families can bake twelve tasty cupcakes ready to decorate, meaning the kids can experiment with their creativity and stretch their imaginations to create some slimey treats to wow the whole family. Even the adults will be impressed!
The Dr. Oetker Spectacular Science! Mixes bring a whole load of fun and education to the kitchen as you can create your very own slime as part of the process, and then use it to decorate the cupcakes. The combination of baking and science creates an engaging family activity with some incredibly delicious results. The mixes tap into the wider trend for parents passing on key skills through affordable, easy-to-undertake family activities. By bringing the fun of interactive science reactions to baking, the kids will enjoy learning something new!
These kits are perfect for any parents or carers looking to keep the kids (and themselves) entertained. Each baking kit provides the ingredients required alongside an exciting learning activity sheet to guide families through the journey and teach them the fun science behind it. The only extras required are margarine, milk, eggs and water.
Dr. Oetker Spectacular Science! Mixes: Stretchy Slime (MRRP: £2.50) is available from Asda now.
Jen Brown, Head of Marketing, Cake & Dessert at Dr. Oetker UK, comments: “We loved the reaction to our Crazy Colour Changing Icing and Squashable Jelly Bubble and we wanted to expand the range by throwing some slime into the mix! Baking can be so much fun and these Spectacular Science! Mixes add an extra special fun-factor into the experience. We’ve combined science and baking in one product by allowing families to create their very own slime which can then be used to decorate the cupcakes, making it simple for parents to pass on key skills and scientific know-how to the kids. We’re really excited to see how people get on with our brand new slime variant and look forward to seeing their colourful, cupcake creations”.
