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. :(
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Morgans_Mommy Excellent Toy......So Glad I Found It!!
This is truly a great toy. The wooden cupcakes and candles are very durable and it makes for great pretend play. Santa brought this for our 2 year old daughter for Christmas and she loves this. She loves birthdays and to "cook" for us and help in the kitchen so this was really perfect for her. The only down side is that yes, the markers are a little difficult to wipe off the tops and the wood especially if you don't wipe it off immediately (who has time to worry about that) but Mr. Clean magic erasers work wonders and take it off in a snap. Thank you Melissa and Doug!!

I bought these cupcakes for my 2 year old daughter from an ice cream/book store in town. She absolutely loves it! She plays with them all the time and never seems to get bored with it! She enjoys having friends over as well, and sings happy birthday! I just use a baby wipe and the marker comes off, even on the wooden part! She even drew all over her arms with the markers and they were also very easily cleaned with a baby wipe! I will buy this toy for our friends childrens for birthdays and I will buy other toys like this for my daughter! Thanks from a happy mommy!
