Target finally got the LORI 'Mix and Bake Set' on their website for order. I like these LORI sets. I still think there are some hits and misses on their part and some of the sizes are definitely not for 1:6 scale, but can be made to work, especially to save space. So, of course I ordered it. These items are close to Re-ment, in my opinion.
Some of the ladies will show you the items so you can see them for scale. Since this is a bake set, I thought it would be appropriate to let our resident expert and classically trained bakers show you the items. So here are Marisol and Rowan to review the set.
Rowan: Yep. I also like the photos. Quite apropos. It almost makes me wish I had my own cooking show. This set up reminds me of one. I like it.
Marisol: It almost makes me want to put large food murals up in the café.
Rowan: I know what you mean. We can think about that. For now, we'd better get started and greet our guests.
Marisol: Hi, I'm Marisol. I work with Rowan at the Flavor Café and I also have my own small business baking specialty items, usually for special occasions, such as weddings and parties. I'm pleased to be able to review these items for you as well.
Rowan: We're going to move to the other side of the counter and get started. We'll take turns, so stay tuned.
Rowan: First up, we have some containers in this set. To my right are tea canisters. Five of the six are permanently in this box and one is outside of it. Unfortunately, that one doesn't fit into the box very well, so we're not going to force it. To my left are these four jars. I think these would be great for different flavored jams. We just need to do a little updating and make these lids less boring, like adding some color and voila, different flavored jams.
Turns and looks at Rowan who is mouthing to her that she isn't ready and to review the next items.
Marisol: Rowan is pulling together more items for review, but I think we can quickly switch over to a few more things I can show you. Just give me a second.
Rowan is interrupted by a voice from the side.
Loud Voice: Hole up! Hole up! What is this?
Rowan: What are you doing? This is not your modeling job. We were invited to show these items. Can you please leave the set?
Tasha: Nope! I'm not going anywhere. Lisa, get over here! They are tryin' ta pull a fast one.
Rowan: Oh, for heaven's sake! What the heck is going on with these two?
Marisol: You know you guys don't belong here. This is not your gig. Maybe next time, but not this time.
Me: Rowan and Marisol, calm down. I'll take care of it. Ladies, I appreciate your interest in modeling, but I do think Rowan and Marisol are the best fit to show and review these items.
Tasha: What?! Really? You didn't even let us come to the review of the other LORI items and you had way more people there. You know what? You are shady.
Me: Umm, excuse me? I'm shady?
Lisa: Well, I think Tasha just means there are other ladies who get to model all the lovely clothes all the time. We may not be able to model the clothes, but we at least thought we could be the designated models for the new accessories. I think that's what we meant to convey, right Tasha?
Tasha: Nope! I do mean she's shady.
Me: Well, I can show you some shade. As a matter of fact, I can show you the inside of a box and since you're that unhappy a new home. How's that for shady?
Lisa: I think we'll be leaving now. We didn't mean to interrupt.
Tasha: Yep! We'll be leaving now. But remember, we're ready to model on demand. I'm just sayin'.
Me: Okay, Marisol and Rowan, take it away.
Marisol: I sincerely apologize for the unnecessary interruption. Now, here are some cooking utensils which are easy to hold. I love rubber cooking utensils. They don't scrape up your pots and pans. Then there is this lovely cloth oven mitt. Isn't it cute? Oh and let 'snot forget these delicious looking pastries. Unfortunately, they are stuck to the baking pan. That's so sad because I would love to have tasted them.
Rowan: We're winding down now. These are my last items. We have this cute toaster with a nice design on it. It even comes with toast. We'll have something to put the flavors of jam on, which is nice. There is also this very small stick of butter in a butter dish. The butter is not glued to the bottom of the butter dish. Another nice item. And to bring us home, Marisol is going to review two more items.
Marisol: Thank you, Rowan. Here are more baked goods. The cupcakes stay in the pan. Such a loss because they look delicious. Another loss is that this lid doesn't come off the cake stand. That's not how the photo looked on the website. I think we may need to complain about that and see if we need a replacement. Why keep that cake from being eaten? Well, we have come to the end of our review. We hope you found it useful if you're considering adding any of these to your own collection. On behalf of Rowan, myself and Miss Jaye, thank you for stopping by.
