Reviews for Pretty Posy Cupcakes
"Recipe of the Day? Really Taste of Home?? REALLY??? This might have been better listed as an easy and quick decorating tip, and spared the author embarrassing ratings. Cute idea for maybe a child's first attempt at decorating a cupcake, but I must agree that this is not a recipe."
"Definitely NOT a recipe - barely a decorating idea"
"I am not one that is way against sugar, but come on...cupcake, frosting AND gumdrops! Did not make and will not make and Yes, this is NOT a recipe..."
"I would give it a 5 star if it was labeled as a first baking experience for a child-with supervision !"
"I'm sorry but,I don't believe this is a recipe!"
