I was so disappointed when opening this, it is tiny. Really tiny. I knew it was mini but I feel the pictures misrepresent the items true size and was expecting something almost double the size. I've shown a few people and everyone has said that the photos look elongated in comparison to the actual product. That said, I decided to keep it as my nieces love baking and decorating and knew I'd bought it. The cakes turn out really well, I haven't had an issue with sticking (although I lightly grease with marg before adding mixture). The cakes are slightly crispy on the outside which I personally like but is different to an oven cooked cake. They only take 6 mins to cook which is great and they make a nice change to a cupcake... My youngest niece especially likes that she's able to decorate easier on a flat surface. I would give it 4 stars but dropped one because I don't think this is advertised accurately.
