My little girl (who is a princess by day) has a thing for cake decorating apps. She loves playing with the ones I have had on my iPad, but at times got frustrated with them because they were geared toward older people (she is 3). Sometimes her little fingers couldn’t get things to line up right. This is why I am so excited to see the new Princessy Cupcakes decorating app by Pink Princess games which is geared toward a younger crowd (I enjoyed playing it too). Princessy Cupcakes enables kids to build and create their own digital cupcakes; they can change the wrappers, flavor of the cakes, color of the icing, and decorations. Once they have completed their masterpieces, they can save them, share them with family and friends through email or Facebook, or feed them to digital friends in the cake shop. My daughter has been having a great time making her new friends happy by feeding them cupcakes.
Princessy Cupcakes is available for free in iTunes with paid in-app upgrades available for more wrappers, decorations, banners, and friends. Purchasing the decorations upgrade will also make the app ad-free. My daughter has loved playing with the free version of the app however, I am definitely going to upgrade everything so she has all of the princess elements of the app available to her. I would recommend that the developers ad some sound (background music, characters noises, etc.) to this app to make it more engaging (maybe it is just me, but I feel more creative when I am listening to music). Princessy Cupcakes has definitely got both my and my princess’s stamp of approval.
