Today's Nostalgia: Baking goods without the big oven

I have written about cupcakes before, the tiny baked goods filled with nostalgia. I wrote about cupcake shops in particular, that are capitalizing on that nostalgia while not breaking your waistline.

Now apparently there is a toy cupcake machine that makes one at a time. It was reviewed at one of the budgeting blogs I read, Common Sense With Money, who is now starting to do reviews. This seems like a good item for Christmas, depending on the budget.

I wonder how similar this is to the Easy Bake Oven. And why does it have to be a toy? Now that I am sort of an adult, I don't have a use for 24 cupcakes. It would actually be better to have one at a time, but depending on how much is costs to make each one, it might be cheaper to buy individually from the shop.

Um, but don't you remember the END PRODUCT of the Easy Bake Oven? (Burnt, crunchy, carcinogenic?) Unless the world of toy baked goods makers have GREATLY improved, I shudder to think of you eating your cupcakes this way, one at a time or not.
