New Toys for Christmas 2014:
The Whipple Cupcake Set is a cupcake decorating set that kids can use to create realistic-looking desserts and treats. It makes a total of 6 non-edible cupcakes, and contains all decorative tools you need, from crème for the frosting, to beads, rhinestones, and other decorative items.
Who is This for?
The Whipple Cupcake Set will be appreciated by parents who are looking for a toy or activity set that is not only fun to play with, but will encourage kids to hone creativity and decorative skills. Craft-oriented adults will also appreciate this set and the many uses for the resulting cupcakes.
7 years and older. NOT for children under 3 years because small parts present a choking hazard.
Things We Like
Attention to detail is not something that many would expect from children. After all, they tend to have very short attention spans. But with the Whipple Cupcake Set, children are encouraged to be as detailed as they can, coming up with intricate designs and details for their faux cupcakes.
We like how kids can immediately get to decorating cupcakes right out of the box. Everything they will need for decorating whipple cupcakes are already provided. Not only are there rhinestones, beads and other toppings, there is also one bag filled with white whipple crème. The crème bag already has a decorative tip, so decorating and putting frosting on top of the cupcakes takes no sweat at all!
With all the tools provided, children can go all out in decorating their cupcakes. This set is primarily geared towards children ages 7 years old and above, but even adults can also find a lot of use for this set. In fact, those who are interested in decorative crafts will have a fun time playing around with the Whipple Cupcake Set.
The level of realism that results from the Whipple Cupcake Set is awe-inspiring. You would not be blamed if you mistake the finished decorated cupcakes as the real thing. They are that real-looking!
Things We Don’t Like
The fun part of the Whipple Cupcake Set is the creative process and revealing the finished products – the decorated faux cupcakes. After that, since they can’t be eaten, there is really nothing else that can be done with the cupcakes besides display them.
There is also an issue about the crème or the frosting taking too long to set or harden. According to some, it takes about 2 days for the frosting to fully dry. For many, this is quite a long wait.
The Whipple Cupcake Set costs $57.99.
