Toni, a reader from Tennessee, recently posted on her blog about Girl Gourmet Cupcake Maker. I had never heard of this toy, probably because I don't have any kids yet. Girl Gourmet is the modern version of an Easy Bake Oven, but you end up with cupcakes instead of a cake. I'm liking the sound of this so far. Sadly, Toni said that the toy is not worth the money. The $20 kit she bought only made two cupcakes! That makes those cupcakes pretty expensive.
My suggestion: buy Betty Crocker's Warm Delights. Same idea...you get a bowl and ingredients. You mix the ingredients and microwave. Result: a pretty yummy chocolate cake (or cinnamon swirl cake or brownie or cookie) at a way cheaper price (around $3). Buy a tub of frosting for $1.50 and you're still way under budget.
Thanks for the post Toni! Check out her whole story here.
