When I ordered some cookie cutters from Mein Cupcake recently, I wondered if, because they were coming from another country that it might take a long time for delivery. Absolutely not! My cutters, a really great set of the alphabet and numbers and some gorgeous decorations for the side of a coffee cup, took only a few days to arrive and with Jimmy’s birthday party preparations not being decided until fairly late in the day, it was great news!
I only started thinking about the party 3 weeks ago so didn’t give myself much time to order all the bits and pieces I needed; thankfully, this ordering on the internet malarky is pretty straight forward and even when ordering from abroad delivery seems to be pretty swift!
I wanted to make cookies for some of the party favours and spell out ‘3 is the magic number’. This is really quite a lot of letters so I needed the set to be mini and include numbers of course! They were exactly as I wanted them to be and even better suit my needs because they come in a small tin which is flat and easy to store. Believe me, when you have a kitchen that’s as mini as mine, then any space saving like this is very welcome!
I made the magic messages for the favors and also some cookies for Jimmy’s actual birthday morning. I made a Happy Birthday message for him on the breakfast table which he loved. Having letters and numbers in my cookie cutting collection is something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time because they will ALWAYS come in handy. It’s wise then to choose something with great lasting power and this metal set by Stadter is just what I needed!
For the cup cookies I flooded them with royal icing which I have never done before but I think they’ve come out rather nicely! I know these are meant for coffee cups which they will be brilliant for at the end of dinner parties but they also looked really pretty inside champagne glasses for the grown ups at Jimmy’s party and I decorated them with a ‘3’ just for him!
It’s hard when browsing www.meincupcake.de not to be distracted by all the other amazing products, you go in thinking you’re looking for one thing but get your head turned very easily! Good job the prices are so affordable then eh! I had to switch of entirely when it came to the gorgeous cup cake cases and packaging options for home-made treats (I do get carried away with the prettiness) and ignore all the wonderful gadgets and gizmos or I’d have been there all day! I was there for cookie cutters and with just that category you get swept up in all the choices so I needed to focus! The cookie cutter range is rather extensive and covers pretty much every topic, even the massively obscure. If it’s cookie cutters you’re after then this is the place to be!
I couldn’t JUST get the alphabet when they have fairy Princess stories with every character imaginable in a cutter, jigsaw train tracks, stand up figures, 3D sets, flowers, insects, clothing, regular shaped cutters, stampers, festive for every occasion sets, wands, animals, vehicles… EVEN a bride and groom! Literally, EVERTHING! I took a long time deciding on something fun but in the end couldn’t resist the cup cutters and they are an brilliant addition to my growing collection.
I will absolutely be back to Mein Cupcake because the service was so super fast and the products are exactly as I wanted them to be. The site, although extensive, is no trouble to navigate around while each listed item has clear details and a large picture. Very impressive! From ingredients to decorations, packaging to tableware, baking equipment to tins, cutters and everything else in between for the wold of baking, then this is definitely THE on-line for me!
