9 Online DIY Baking/Decorating Kits
Sometimes you just got to take control of the situation, right? I was the one moaning (and probably still do a bit) that there is no flour or pasta in the shops.
We just got to deal with it by thinking outside the box. Constantly moaning isn’t going to bring flour home. I realised I had chapati flour and could make biscuits with that and placed a flour order from Holland & Barrett (albeit spelt and rice flour). I also remembered that you can buy amazing DIY kits at home to bake, decorate and stay happy and positive. Baking is also therapeutic for me.
We are lucky to have the internet which is full of resources and helps us with fantastic ideas on how to deal with what we have now. After this bump in 2020 is over, I reckon we will see more bakers, chefs and probably many more teachers.
Here are some DIY baking/chocolate/decorating kits you can send to those you love or just for home indulgence and entertainment.
Cocoa Amore has been a favourite of mine since it opened in Leicester and while I cannot visit their shop, I am glad they have an online store so I can get my chocolate fix.
They have some DIY chocolate lollipops which sound and look amazing and truffle making kits. I mean everyone deserves some chocolate fun right? The chocolatiers here are creative and have something for everyone including that last-minute Easter Egg delivery.

The Busy Baking Company sell the perfect home baking kits that are precisely weighted and most of the time come in a jar. The jar sold me! What a great idea. All recipes are tried and tested so be sure to make that delicious and simple bake with their DIY kits.

The place to buy free-from DIY mixes to get all the goodness in. Their aim is to help get that goodness into meals and snacks, quickly and easily. They specialise in gluten free, dairy free and vegan ready mixes and have no added sugar. I am a fan of their pancake mixes and now I have seen the brownies I want that too.

I was hoping to see more DIY kits on Biscuiteers however can only see an Easter one and damn it is a good one. It is pricey but the end result looks amazing and I have heard so many people rave about Biscuiteers. They are luxury hand iced biscuits after all, made the traditional way.
If you fancy sending anyone a gift, the personalised selections look like showstoppers.
