What is it?
The Bake Your Own Boyfriend Cookie Cutter is exactly what you’d expect. A simple, blue, plastic, man-shaped cookie cutter.
What’s good about it
This cookie cutter is quite thick and sturdy so you don’t have to worry about it breaking after a few uses. I decided to make a chocolate chip boyfriend (who doesn’t want a chocolate chic boyfriend?!), but all the little bits caused some difficulty when trying to push the cutter into the dough. Despite the fact that the chips were very hard, with a bit of effort, the cutter went straight through the chocolate chips. No harm was done to the cookie cutter and the shape of my future boyfriend remained intact.
This cutter is quite a good size (it’s probably around the length of a 15cm ruler) which means that you don’t have midget boyfriend cookies and this is actually something special. The design of the cutter ensures that when the cookie comes out of the oven it still looks like a ‘man’ and it doesn’t just merge into a sort of blob, thankfully.
What’s not so good about it
Pretty much the only downside to this cookie cutter is that the legs of your future boyfriend are just a little too close together which means that your cookie dough will probably get stuck in there until you lift the whole cutter up and poke it out. This isn’t really a big issue as it doesn’t affect the shape of your cookie or anything, it’s just a mild hindrance.
Putting it to use
So who wants to see some pictures of my embarrassing baking skills?
If you’re not sure what sort of cookies to bake, you’ll find aa pretty good recipe on the back of the cookie cutter packaging, which is handy.
So there you have it – a demonstrating of my poor culinary skills.
In the end the cookies came out quite tasty but a little too brown. I put them in the oven for the correct amount of time so either I’m retarded or this recipe is a little off, but if you are going to follow the same recipe I did, I suggest reducing the time in the oven to around 10 minutes.
At only £3.60, I’d say that this cookie cutter is a bargain. It’s a fun idea that would make a perfect present or if you’re an avid baker then this is something you will no doubt want to add to your collection. Who cares about gingerbread men, when you can have a cookie boyfriend? It’s easy to use, easy to wash (though not dish washable) and you end up wish a unique and tasty cookie – sorry, boyfriend!
If having a boyfriend cookie isn’t enough for you and you’d like a cookie husband, then Niion have got that covered too!
