"These are absolutely adorable! I made them for my niece's bday, and everyone thought they were so cute and creative. Little did they now how truly easy they are to assemble. Yes, a little time consuming, but perfect if you make a couple dozen cupcakes, and decorate 1 dozen with just one gift, and the rest of them, with a bday message. I'll make these again!"

"I made 30 for my granddaughter's pre-school and 20 for my bereavement group. They were so cute, no one wanted to eat them. After I frosted them, I dipped them in red, yellow and green sugars before putting on the packages. They were gorgeous! I'll definitely keep this idea for another time! Birthdays would be good, too!"

"These are very easy to make, but I change the gifts on top to something much easier to eat. Soft candy works very, very well."
