In response to the latest animal craze, Dr. Oetker has launched a new llama-themed decorating kit for its home baking portfolio.

The Llama decorating lit (198g, rrp £4.00) is a six piece kit that helps home bakers create llama and cactus themed biscuits. The pack includes fondant icing, green colour gel, red and yellow writing icing, three sprinkle sachets, llama and cactus templates, and an instruction and recipe leaflet.  

Llamas are the latest animal-themed trend to become popular amongst UK consumers and the new product is designed to tap into sales from younger shoppers looking for novelty baking kits.

Recipes for the themed biscuits and other ideas, including a llama cactus cake, will be featured on Dr. Oetker’s website, alongside a ‘how to’ video.

Riccardo Panichi, head of marketing for cake and dessert at Dr. Oetker UK, said: “This is the second decoration kit we’ve launched after our Mermaid Kit, which provides an easy and convenient solution to consumers wanting to recreate the latest baking trends. Llamas are set to be the next big thing and we’re excited to reveal this new NPD as it’s definitely something a bit different!”
