When I saw this, I just had to have it.
This is a cute as can be children's baking set. It includes a little rolling pin, cookie sheet and darling little cookie cutters. That's not all, look in the box below!
There is a whisk, a wooden spoon and more. It even has a tiny little tart pan and a grater for the lemon zest. The really interesting thing about this set is that it is from West Germany; probably made late 50's or early 60's. I am guessing it was brought back by someone in the military or possibly from a vacation. These German made sets must be somewhat rare (in this country anyway), because I did not come across another one on the internet. Maybe all the grown up little girls have them stashed away in their attics?
I used Google translation and as far as I can tell these are recipes. I could make out the things like, butter, margarine and the grams on my own. When translated it threw in a few more hints like, flour, lemon-zest and tasty. Still not enough for me to figure out a recipe though! What I found very unusual was the ladybug and the star sticker. When I was researching German toys, I noticed that ladybugs seemed to show up on several items. If anyone knows more about this, please share.
The words on the box were translated to 'Come, back to me'. The box illustration is adorable. I love that the girl has her doll and dog helping out! If you love her too, this Pastry Set can be yours she is in my Crave Cute Etsy shop just waiting for a new owner.
When I was a little girl, I had a little bake ware set. I remember having my mom help me make a cake and some muffins. Did you have anything similar when you were growing up? I would love to hear your stories! ~~ Diane
