King Arthur Flour Review and GIVEAWAY!! **ENDED**


King Arthur Flour is America’s oldest flour company and is 100% employee-owned. Their flours never include any unnecessary chemicals (like bleach or bromate). In addition to selling a selection of flours in supermarkets nationwide, they also offer hundreds of baking ingredients, mixes, and tools. Plus, their website is loaded with resources – from online recipes, to their Baker’s Hotline, to various on-site and traveling educational programs.

I was given the opportunity to review some great baking products from King Arthur Flour.  Since they are most famous for their flour products, I was glad to try out their Cake Flour.  The flour is great because it is made from pure, natural flour and is free from hazardous chemical.  It is the only unbleached cake flour on the market.  So, how did it perform?  I made some amazing mint chocolate cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day and the result was perfectly risen cupcakes that tasted amazing!


Speaking of cupcakes, I received some other great cupcake products! Every good cupcake starts with a fun wrapper and King Arthur Flour has a lot of great designs from which to choose. I was given a set of Swirl Baking Cups - Assorted.  I loved the bright colors which are perfect for every day baking or spring-themed designs. I used the green cups for my St. Patrick's Day cupcakes and was very happy with them. They were thick and held their shape through the baking process and peeled away easily when it was time to start eating. 

If you are looking for some baking ideas for Easter, then they offer some fun edible embellishments that would be great for cakes, cupcakes, and cookies.  Sugar decorations look fantastic, but are very time consuming to make my hand. Purchasing the decorations is an alternative that will save you time and still add a "wow" factor to your baked goods. I received a set of Bunny Sugar Decorations and Carrot Sugar Decorations.  I cannot wait to make some adorable carrot cake cupcakes for Easter using these fabulous decorations. they are really dainty, yet fairly detailed. They peel easily from the paper and are wrapped tightly so there is no damage when being shipped. Here is how adorable they look on a cupcake:

Buy it here: You can purchase King Arthur Products from their website. Some products are also available at local retail locations.
