Melissa and Doug put a lot of thought and care into their products for children. My 3 year old daughter could not wait to open up the Melissa and Doug Triple Layer Party Cake. It is vibrant, festive and includes a pretend candle, cake slicer and serving plate. All the pieces velcro together making it so fun for my daughter to slice into. It took her a couple of tries to figure out how to slice the cake apart but once she got the hang of it we dinned on cake for a half an hour. I would highly recommend this product and truly enjoy watching my daughter play and use her imagination with this party cake.
