Ease of assembly: 5 stars

The Good: Entertains children while also teaching useful skills

Cupcake Set Entertains and Teaches
For parents who want their children to enjoy imaginative playtime while learning useful skills, the Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set is an ideal choice. This adorable set is packed with educational opportunities, but children are likely to have too much fun playing baker to notice they're learning.

The brown and yellow cupcake bottoms and pastel icing tops invite children to mix and match, creating their favorite combinations. For younger kids, this can help improve color recognition and counting skills, especially if a caregiver joins the fun and prompts discussions. For older children, it allows creativity to flourish, especially when they use the markers to draw polka dots and fun shapes on the icing tops.

The set also helps children develop hand-eye coordination. Little hands will love placing and removing the icing tops and candles. Children will also enjoy using the markers to garnish the cupcakes and gain fine motor skills that come in handy for schoolwork, sports, and other activities.

Classic Charm and Authenticity
Parents and children alike will be charmed by the Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set's wooden components. The wooden cupcake bottoms are painted yellow and brown--vanilla and chocolate--and the colorful candles are each decorated with a barbershop-pole design and topped with a painted flame.

For authenticity, the plastic muffin tray is silver-toned, giving it the look of a metal baking tray. Paper cupcake liners fit in the tray, so children can feel like they're really baking. Perhaps most realistic of all, a quilted oven mitt has a checkered red-and-white pattern and is child-sized to fit little hands.

For Independent or Group Play
The versatile Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set is suited for solo or small-group play. Children will enjoy throwing tea parties for their stuffed animals or bringing the set to show-and-tell and sharing the fun. Parents and caregivers can join in too, sitting alongside their junior bakers or placing special orders to give them a fun, rewarding task.

Easy to Clean and Store
When playtime is finished, the icing tops can be wiped with a dry cloth to remove the marker. If the designs don't come completely off, try dampening the towel. Once everything is clean and dry, the cupcake tray makes it simple to tidy up the cupcakes--in fact, it's so easy, little ones can be taught to put the pieces away all by themselves.

(Note: the Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set is not intended to be used with real food and is not dishwasher, oven, or microwave safe.)

We have a lot of Melissa and Doug items and we're always generally very impressed with them. The cupcake set is great fun and our six year old wanted it so much that she bought it with her own money. To start off with, it's a high quality toy. They're basically wooden cupcakes with candles that velcro on top. The whole concept of the icing markers is fun and all the kids (friends included) enjoy "decorating" the cupcakes. The part you draw on is a sort of plastic lid that fits over the wooden cupcake and is supposed to look like icing. It even comes with a little baking tin (wooden) and an oven mitt. There are paper cupcake liners in fun patterns included that aren't going to last forever, but hey...they are paper. We've generally got liners in the pantry so that's not a huge deal.

The big flaw in this toy is that the wooden cupcakes are not finished in a type of paint that will allow you to wipe the dry erase marker off of them. Only the plastic "icing" can be erased. Admittedly if you look at the very fine print on the back of the box it reads "Markers are intended for wipe-off icing surfaces only. Do not use markers on other components." Realistically however, giving kids some dry erase markers and letting them go to town on pretend cupcakes, is going to result in the entire cupcake getting "decorated." In the scheme of things it doesn't really matter because my daughter loves them anyway, but it does keep me from giving this toy Melissa and Doug's usual high approval rating. If this is something that is going to upset you or your child, you'd be better off buying another of their products.

My daughter received this gift for her 3rd birthday party and LOVES it. The only problem, there's no warning on the box that states the markers will ruin clothing. A little bit of the marker got on her handmade birthday dress and does not come out, so now the dress is ruined. I have now purchased a set of washable markers and they work like a charm. Yes, they get a little bit more on her hands, but just run the plastic frosting under water and it's all cleaned. No more need for paper towels and the "icing markers" are now put away for good. But, I do love the concept of this toy, the markers need some improving though.

My daughter got this for her birthday a few days ago. She's been playing with it nonstop, so I think it does have great entertainment value. However, the markers are not washable nor does the package state that the markers are permanent or provide any kind of washing instructions. I assumed since this is a toy for kids, that the markers would be washable. If I had known they weren't, I would have made her wear a smock and play with them at the table. She ruined a $20 princess nightgown and Gymboree shirt and her baby sister got a hold of one of them and decorated the chair. I'm going to replace the markers with washable ones for now. But I would advise anyone considering this product to immediately throw away the markers. The birthday set has the same entertainment value without the mess. We have that one and they've been playing with it for over a year now.

We are very big fans of Melissa and Doug toys so when this new cupcake set came out we were anxious to play with it.
It's another quality wood toy like all of their other play food toys (cookies, cake, pizza, cutting box). My hesitation on not giving it 5 stars would be the cupcake liners are very flimsy, pretty much what you would buy in a store to bake a cupcake. Those will not hold up to heavy play. I love the idea of the markers in "icing tubes" but once the ink runs dry on these you loose the play value of being able to decorate the tops with icing/markers. Also, with all M&D toys now there is no lid or keep tight storage container for all the pieces.

I thought this was the cutest toy ever the day we received it. My daughter had a blast coloring the heck out of the cupcakes and giving them to us. It never occurred to me that the markers were not washable. Alas, my daughter's favorite pants, no matter what treatment I use on them, have marker stains all over. I also have a couple of spots on the carpet I am trying to remove without luck so far. If you put your kid in an art smock and put down paper where they play with this set, then this is a cool toy!

Got this for the 2 year old's birthday. Big sis who is almost nine couldn't wait to play also. 2 year old loves to play cook and feed. 8 year old loves to decorate the cakes. I like that we can decorate too, but not make such a mess in the kitchen. They're also 0 grams of fat per serving.

First, let me begin by echoing a couple of the complaints noted by other reviewers--the markers stain and the paper cups are flimsy. If you have an older, more mature child, the markers are fine (and adorable, to boot!). My 2 year old's clothing has only been victim to one stray mark in the 3 months that we have owned this set. Furthermore, if marker gets on the wooden part of the cupcake or begins to discolor the 'icing' it can be returned to 'like new' condition with the all-powerful Mr. Clean Magic Eraser--It will not come off with soap and water alone. On the other hand, if your child is on the messy side, ditch the markers and get some washable dry erase markers.
Despite its flaws, this is an adorable playset that offers lots of interaction and educational opportunities (e.g. ask your child to make you a chocolate cupcake with pink icing and green sprinkles). My nearly 5 year old son can't even resist joining in the fun. This is yet another unique, imagination-inspiring product from M&D. Happy Baking!!
