The product card shows you what is in the box, plus a quick DIY tutorial for your materials and suggestions. I like that they provide guidelines instead of hard and fast directions so you can allow yourself to be as creative as you want.

These cookie cutters are just too cute. These were included to create fondant shapes, but I think I will have to try to make mini sugar cookies with them.

Mini Rolling Pin – Retail Value $1.22

I’ve never seen a rolling pin this small before, it is so cute! I don’t know if I would ever actually use it, but it makes a nice decoration in the kitchen.

I was so excited to see the Sprinkles Cupcakes mix in the box. I read the directions and it involves a lot of butter, so I will see about substituting some of the butter before I try to make it.

I love playing with fondant, it is like edible playdough which is always a good thing.
