I was invited to try out this beautiful cake set with my toddler daughter.
The Truly Scrumptious Cake set comes with eight carefully created fabric cakes - a battenberg, fondant, cupcake and various other slices. The cakes are presented on a patterned cardboard cake stand, so the whole effect is very elegant - it was tempting to display the set in my daughter's bedroom rather than ruining the effect by playing with it!
The cakes look enticing, and my daughter immediately went to work, carefully placing the cakes on the stand, one by one, then rearranging them, and starting over again. Hours of fun!
She enjoyed 'feeding' her dolls and teddies with the cakes, and I have a feeling the set will remain a favourite for several years as her skills and imagination develop.
My one reservation is that the cardboard cake stand may take a bit of a battering from robust toddler play, but time will tell.
The Truly Scrumptious Cake Set is priced at £24, so I would imagine that it would be more likely to be bought as a special present than an everyday toy.
