Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by We loved it! We picked one of these kits up in the Oxford Street branch last summer and our 2 girls spent almost a whole rainy morning choosing which ribbon and buttons to use on each cupcake. The instructions were easy to understand and the kit had more than enough felt, ribbon and buttons to make a few extra items. The quality of the ribbon, buttons and felt is fantastic. Both of our daughters have a new kit on top of this years Christmas list and we are more than happy to oblige. 03 December 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing This was bought as a present for my daughter who is learning to sew. She has had other kits bought that we have had much pleasure making together. Firstly, there are no threads so we took it on holiday to make and brought it back home to obtain the threads. Secondly, the illustrations show the cupcakes decorated with small buttons. There were two small buttons in the kit and the remainder of the buttons were almost larger than the cupcakes. The price tag for this kit is high so I mistakenly thought that it would be a premium product. Basically, it is suitable for people who craft regularly and can supplement the kit with their own supplies. Not recommended for those starting to sew. I would not buy one of these as a gift or for anyone other than an experienced crafter. Hugely disappointed. 30 August 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by A lovely collection of bits and bobs to make delicious cupcakes! I had wanted one of these for ages and when I finally got it, was not disappointed - what a lovely selection of felts, buttons and ribbons, all of high quality. The only thing I would comment on were the extremely basic instructions - simple and easy to understand yes, (I am relatively experienced) but for an inexperienced stitcher, some reference to the stitches used and diagrams might have been useful. That said, the instructions easily allow someone with a little experience to produce a whole bakery of cupcakes should they so wish! 01 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cup cake mania I bought this as a small project for a friends daughter thinking its stylish and rather "grown up " for her. It easy for beginners and importantly quick to make, thereby not letting her get bored or disheartened at it taking too long to make. The colours co-ordinate beautifully and all the extras - key ring brooch pin, buttons and ribbon etc. are excellent for developing creativity letting her create and design her own highly individual one off. A great present which when made can be attached to all sorts things. 09 November 2011
