Celebrating 25 Years Of Haribo Starmix

Did you know that it's been 25 years since HARIBO brought together it's classic range of sweets - the egg, cola bottle, bear, heart and ring - together in a mixed bag for the first time?

 HARIBO Starmix went on to become part of the fond childhood memories of countless children and was even named ‘Britains Favourite Sweet’! 

 To celebrate their 25th birthday, HARIBO invited us to get creative and come up with a birthday cake fit for such a special celebration!

 I'm going to let you in to a little secret - I am a TERRIBLE baker! I've tried my best to make birthday cakes for my little ones over the years and while there have been one or two that came out alright, most of them have been a downright disaster – in fact one year it took me FOUR attempts just to get a cake that was baked all the way through! Eek!

 What I lack in baking skills, my children more than make up for in enthusiasm when it comes to projects like this so I enlisted their help to come up with the perfect cake to celebrate 25 years of Starmix.

 After a bit of a discussion, we decided that the best way to honour Starmix was to recreate a packet in cake form!

I'm pleased to report that the actual making of the cake itself went pretty smoothly - no major disasters to report and it baked right through on the first try - hooray!

Unfortunately, some of our decorating skills left a lot to be desired - let's just say I don't think we'll be winning any Star Baker awards any time soon! 

 But we tried our best and we had SO much fun doing it - plus the end result tasted pretty good, which is the main thing right?!

Why not join us in celebrating 25 years of Starmix by coming up with your own creation - it's certainly a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon!

#HappyBirthdayStarmix !
