Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tammy Kids all ages love these!
I bought this set for my 4 yr old for Christmas. He absolutely loves it. In fact all 5 of my children(ages 12, 10, 8, 4 & 2) all play with this set! As I was typing this my 4 yr old carried them in and was making cupcakes. My only real complaints are I wish the cupcake holders were actually sturdier, like plastic or wood because they get destroyed. We have recently been having issues with the dry erase not erasing off of some of the tops also. And one of our candles broke. But I think it was well worth it and probably one of my son's favorite presents. His older sisters play with him and he bakes the cupcakes in his little brother's oven. It is really a fun set despite the few issues
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Marker all Over So cute but markers do NOT wash out!
My daughter got this product for her 3rd birthday last night and absolutely loved it however after playing with it all day long the markers will not wash off of her hands. My 5 year old also had the same problem. When I rinsed off the tops for her to play again & try a new design my hands were covered with marker that still will not wash off, while whiping off some of the tops a faint residue of marker remained on...some marker did get on their clothes & I am concerned about it washing off. I did have to take them away & she still will play with it but was really sad she could no longer draw on the tops!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by fishtail1129 Fun toy, but could be improved a bit
My 5 year old daughter got this as a birthday gift. She has played with it a few times and seems to enjoy it. But I have a few complaints. The markers you use for decorating the "frosting" are not washable, so be prepared for stained fingers and clothes (the ink did come out of the clothes in the wash). It also stains the wooden cupcakes. I also wish it came in a box you could close up to keep all the pieces together. The tray it comes with helps keep the parts organized, but there is no lid. We have many Melissa & Doug toys that my girls enjoy very much, they are all well made and creative.
We'll see how much my daughter plays with it; it seems like the kind of thing she will use a few times and lose interest.

I love Melissa & Doug toys and this is a terrific gift. Our Granddaughter has so enjoyed this cupcake set as have we. The only problem we had was our granddaughter dotted her new dress with the markers and I've tried many methods and just can't get it out. Any suggestions? We wrongfully assumed that the markers would be washable being that it is for a child. As soon as she touched her dress we looked for warnings or statements of how to remove but found nothing. We had no problem wiping off the icing or wooden cupcakes. It is still a wonderful toy but her dress is ruined. :(
