I bought this Melissa and Doug sand toy (Cupcake Maker) along with two others by Melissa and Doug, the Cookie Maker and the Ice Cream Cone Maker, for my daughter's 4th birthday. These sand toys are awesome! I bought a sand/water table by Little Tykes (the one with the green umbrella) and filled both sides, the sand and water side, with sand. I added just the right amount of water to make perfect sand for building. I put four little chairs around the sand table and my 4 children, ages 4, 7, 10, and 12 all love playing in this sand "box" (table actually). I tried out the sand toys myself and found so many different and creative ways to use them. I highly recommend this sand toy along with the other ones by Melissa and Doug. For those of you who are confused as to the purpose of the little icing utensil, it is used to "decorate" the cupcakes. The pointed end pokes little holes, and the jagged end makes jagged marks... all of which is FUN for kids (and adults lol). Buy this... you won't regret it!

I purchased the Sunny Patch cupcake, cookie and ice cream sets for a recent beach vacation. My 3 and 5 year old daughters loved them! Each set has some great playthings and some that didn't get much use.

In the cupcake set, one daughter used the four cupcake molds to serve as "cups" for the scoops of ice cream she created from the ice cream set (though she also offered cones as an option for her customers). My younger daughter used the cupcake "tin" to create four cakes which she then turned out onto the cookie sheet from the cookie set. The sprinkle can (that came with the cookie set and the ice cream set) was a hit with both girls and I was glad to have two! These toys are well made and durable and will be enjoyed by my girls for many years.

As with most Melissa and Doug products, this set is very durable and made with quality materials...unlike most beach sets you'll find. I purchased the cookie, cupcake, and ice cream sets as well as the nesting pails. All are great. They provided hours of fun and creativitiy. I am sure they will last a very long time.

Our children (ages 4 & 2) love to play with this toy in the sand box. It is very well made and lots of fun. The only problem? They fight over it! I'm ordering another one right now!

I purchased this for my three year old granddaughter to take on a beach vacation. She played for hours with this set. She made "cupcakes" for everyone decorated with shells, seaweed, little sticks and stones and served them on large seashells. I agree with another reviewer that the icing tool has little use as it is flat, but my granddaughter used it as a little knife to cut our cupcakes. The pieces are sturdy and colorful. We even used the molds to make little houses when we made a sand village. This was well worth the money!

My son received this as a third birthday gift. He has played with it in our backyard sandbox. It is a cute product, but a bit too advanced for him. I think that this would be most effective as a beach toy or perhaps with a water table -- somewhere where you have access to wet sand, which sets the cupcakes in the molds better. Overall, very cute, but not good if you only have "dry" sandbox sand.

My almost four year old granddaughter loves cupcakes, and the second thing she loves is playing in the water and making sand objects. What could be better than these seaside sand cupcake makers?

With Melissa and Doug I am sure that I am getting quality and products that are made just for children. Safe to play with, and most of all fun. We have a big 4th of July family party at my sister's lakeside home. Hours are spent playing in the water, and then hours are spent playing in the sand. These containers and cupcake set are just the perfect thing for all of us. Proud little children make their own cupcakes for all to enjoy!l. The cupcake containers are brilliant colors, orange, blue, yellow and red. There is a blue cupcake tin, a yellow over, and a blue cupcake mold. There is a blue mesh bag that fits all of the cupcake paraphernalia. My granddaughter loved it, we had white, chocolate, strawberry and raspberry cupcakes. Fun was had by all and particularly Gramma!

These will last for a long time, and I am very pleased with this set.

Like most of the Melissa and Doug products I've purchased, the quality on this is good. The plastic is thick and durable and brightly colored. I was a little worried about the baking cups breaking at the hinges but that hasn't happened yet though they have been played with heavily. The molds don't work so great and this is actually my kids's least favorite of the three sets we purchased, but the blue net bag that comes with the set is great. We purchased three Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Seaside sets: the Speck Seahorse Sand Ice Cream Set, the Sidekicks Sand Baking Set, and the Sidekicks Sand Cupcake Set to take on our 3 week vacation to the Pacific Northwest. The kids played with them almost every day at the beach and/or in the bath tub. Great quality. No broken pieces the entire trip or since we've returned home. Lots of creative play options. I was able to nest the ice cream set pieces inside of the baking set bucket, and store all of the smaller pieces from all three sets along with the cupcake pan in the netted carrier that comes with the cupcake set. The end result was that I was able to get all three sets and the hand full of play dishes (plates, cups, utensils) I brought entirely into one bucket and the net carrier. VERY convenient for storage in the car and carrying to/from the beach. If you were to only pick ONE, I would recommend the baking set as it's pieces seemed to be most universally versatile. But the net that comes with this set is nice to have and this set compliments the others well. The sets are a little pricey and probably should be priced at just less than $10, but are way neater than the cheap plastic sand toys you typically see at the store.

I posted pictures of all three sets on the Amazon product page for the baking set - search for "Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Seaside Sidekicks Sand Baking Set"

This is better than you would imagine. I wasn't particularly impressed and it looked way to basic for my four year ole. WRONG! she LOVES this set. She made sand cupcakes and decorated them with shells for hours. It was the first thing she wanted to do the next day at the beach. More amazingly, her older cousins (6 & 8) also loved them and played with her.I highly recommend this. I don't necessarily see the appeal but clearly I am not their target demographic...

My grandchildren liked to take this toy to the playground and beach. When we lost a few parts, I ordered a new set.
