|A cupcake board game - how fun!
|Cupcake Race game is for 2-4 players. Each person picks a party hat as their game piece.
When you open the box it comes with all of your "baking" supplies: Brightly colored cupcake wrappers (they are plastic not paper), four flavors of cake, four flavors of frosting, and four bright red cherry toppers.
|My girls LOVE to mix and match flavors
|These are very tiny - so this game is for preschool aged (4+ and up)
|This was our very first time to play. Look at those smiles!
|The girls love setting up all the supplies almost as much as playing the game
To make the first move, the youngest player goes first. The spinner is attached in the actual game board, so I love the extra bonus that there is not a chance of it getting lost somewhere or being separated from the game. Not only do you use the number to count out your spaces, you also used the colors to help pick the color of your chosen sprinkles. When you land on a +2 for example, you get to spin the spinner twice. Whatever color it lands on is the sprinkle colors you get.
|Love that this is attached within the board itself
So we played a very rousing first game. My middle child things that it's even better if your mini ponies watch while you play
|Luckily the ponies have color coordinated with the game board
We had a blast trying to get to the finish line. Here's a shot of our completed cupcakes:
|So fun and colorful.
I guess the best sign that it is a good game, is when the girls start teaching it to friends, family, and neighbors. Yesterday they took it outside and taught our neighbor kids how to play. They also took it over to Grandma's house last weekend.
|They almost look good enough to eat!
Also I now have major props for this company, want to know why?
Well I knew that with those tiny little sprinkles it was only going to be a matter of time before one of them got lost. Since you need exactly 12 sprinkles and it comes with exactly 48, a lost sprinkle could make the game not work. Sure enough two weeks in (and we were being extra careful too) we couldn't find a sprinkle. I looked on the website and couldn't find a replacement parts order form, so I called the main phone number and the super nice lady at the other end immediately took down my address and sent out a whole bag of sprinkles. Free. Free shipping. Just sent it to me. I thought that was fabulous. Now I have an extra set tucked away and can replace a sprinkle here or there as needed.
So there you have it. It's a game about pretend cupcakes, teaches colors and numbers, and my girls just love it. Thought I would pass it along.
