Don't torture your kids with this is the advice of Eyewitness News reporter Tommy Noel at KIDK news in Idaho Falls, USA.
I think I have to agree after seeing the cupcakes that were made with this thing - it may be fun but god only knows whats in those microwave cupcake mixes and I think the frosting reminded me a bit too much of my litter tray duties. Also for the cost you get a mix for 4 cupcakes and I really don't think microwave cupcakes will ever taste good! You can watch how the kids testing the Cupcake Maker got on here.
I'm with Tommy here - much better to buy the kids a nice baking set from M&S or something and teach them to bake!*
*on the video they recommend an Easy Bake Oven but we don't have those here!
