Initial thoughts: This toy was provided by the ToysRUs toyologist programme, and reviewed by Laura, 5, and her Mum. These are their words: I must admit that initially as a parent I was dismayed by the potential mess of this cupcake making and painting set, and the thought of the damage plaster of paris could do in little hands! I also was disappointed this can only be done with adult support – although, to be fair, that’s made very clear in the instructions.
We liked: This is a two-stage activity to be done over two different days, and the instructions are really clear and easy to follow. I thought the results were brilliant. The plaster mouldings turned out perfectly and came out of the mould tray easily. The paint covers them well and the end result was good. Laura really enjoyed watching and helping with the initial activity and then doing the painting independently.
We weren’t keen: Nothing – we liked this set a lot and it’s great value for money.
Overall: Laura loves these cakes and now uses them in her play kitchen as pretend cakes. As an added bonus, the plaster tray used to make the moulds could also be used for chocolate in future!
