The Baker bakes the cake - and you get a cake in this set. And a chef hat. It's a pretty decent figure overall, but I'd be lying if I said it was exciting - the girl's line goes between some really awesome figures, and some boring ones. "Lady in fancy dress" and "fairy" are snoozes, but musketeer? SCUBA diver? Doctors? Now we're talking. This one turned out really well if you need a cake, and well, you probably do. I'd like a cake.
The figure requires assembly, as they all do - the bows plug in to the hollow cake, while the hat fits on her head. The jacket has fancy pink trim, with pants to match. The tray is a perfect fit for her hands, and she can stand and sit with the best of them.
I wish she had some baker's gear, because merely presenting the cake is kind of unexciting. I'd love to have seen some spoons or icing bags, or more layers to the cake - it's not very fancy. It's a perfectly round cake, but it lacks the sort of preposterous confection artistry we have been exposed to via reality television and toy industry events.
If you like what you see, this is a perfect figure - everything fits, the decoration is clean, and she can use her tray with the best of them. Playmobil (and LEGO) put out figures that skirt the borders of perfection, but at the cost of newly-sculpted elements on their respective persons. Accessories build out a core figure, and the end result is usually a durable, high-quality figure. You won't be disappointed by her nifty hat and colorful make-up, but I wish she had a kitchen to run or some more to do.
