I’ve been mentioning in many posts for the past month or so that I won some awesome prizes from Flo at Say Hello to My Little Friends and I am finally going to do a review of what I won today. Since she’s new to the gang and my modern girl, I thought I’d let Charlie help out with the review.
But before I get to the big stuff, I wanted to take a quick look at the little prizes that were included along with the big MLA cupcake baking set.
Again, ignore the terrible picture quality. I was in a rush and didn’t correct my camera settings.
As you can see, there’s a micro binder perfect for school, a mini purple notebook or possibly journal, an adorable rubber duck, an Eiffel Tower charm that will almost certainly belong to Grace when she eventually comes home with me, and my two favorite things from this mini bundle of gifts: a coffee cup candle that smells good and would be a great prop for a cafe setting, and a mini Apples to Apples game with real cards that you could actually use to play.
I showed the Apples to Apples game in use by my girls at their slumber party in my last post but here’s a closer look at the game they had set up:
I think Kit was judging this round and the two options for Goofy were Hamsters and Spider-Man. Charlie put in the Spider-Man card, and even though Kit didn’t know who that was, she though it sounded goofy so she chose that card as the winner. I haven’t found uses yet for all the little stuff that I got, but I imagine I will as my AG collection grows and I set up different scenes to photograph. The big prize however was the My Life As Cupcake Baking Set, and I’m excited to have Charlie show that off for you. First things first, let’s take a look at the packaging:
From here, everything comes out really easily. It was a refreshing change from some other boxes I’ve opened this summer. While this set would have been perfect for Grace to review, since I didn’t want to put off reviewing it any longer, Charlie stepped up to help out.
A closer look at the set. My favorite things about the set are the little measuring spoons which are absolutely adorable, and can be removed from their ring and returned very easily, the cookie cutter, and the mini spatula and measuring cup. I also like the cupcake pan, and the cupcakes, although two seems like a ridiculously small number for this set. At least 4 would have made much more sense. The brownie and cupcake recipe cards are just cardboard, and my cupcake one was a little bent on the bottom. There look to be real recipes printed on the back, which is a nice added detail, when they could have easily just left the back blank.
A closer look at some of my favorite things:
I don’t know how much this set costs, but I’m absolutely certain it is significantly less expensive than Grace Thomas’ $68 Baking Set. Obviously the quality is lower, but I think that this set has some adorable pieces that trump even Grace’s set, and it is definitely a fun alternative to the more expensive AG sets. I’m sure when Grace comes home with me, she will want to check this set out.
A big thank you to Flo for holding this contest. I’m sure my AG crew and I will get a lot of use out of everything you sent us!
