As a sucker for a sweet tooth when I saw these for sale in a gadget shop I knew that I had to have them. I have keys that fit them and in fact I had a rubber cap for my keys before I lost them. They help you grip the key better so I was happy to buy them as they were a functional gift for myself as well as a fun one. They also help you to work out which key is which quickly and easily as the caps are all different colours.

The cost of the key tabs are £4.99 and they will make a lovely gift for someone. You can buy them currently on Amazon. You get six in the kit.
They say, "Sweeten your keys with these cute cupcakes. Don't get all keyed up! Get your life organised with these tasty cupcake keycaps. Six different sugary treats will make sorting your house key from your car key a delight. Deliciously distinctive, grab a half dozen cupcakes to sweeten up your day."
These are very cute and easy to fit. As long as you have a euro profile key then you will be able to use them. The rubber heads slot over your key and they look very pretty and girly. As I had six I wanted my boyfriend to have one too but he declined! He was not sure about them and thought they were too girlie.
I find the key heads make the key easier to hold when I insert it as the head offers a little extra grip. I like the designs as they have little faces made out of the cake decorations and add a little character to a simple key. These are definitely got to have items rather than need!
These do not last very well and the designs have got very dirty. I gave a couple to my mum and I put two on my key ring. The different colours means I can differentiate my back door key and my front really easily. As time has gone on, the colours are still there but they have dirty marks on, I guess caused from being thrown in my bag, banging on the steeling lock and general use. I would say that they look a little scruffy now but they still fit well and I still like them. I would buy some other tabs in the future as I really appreciate being able to work out which key is which. When the faces fade and the colours get tainted with dirt and dust then it does become quite hard to differentiate. I guess the good thing is that you get six key tabs this is more than enough as I only have 3 keys on my bunch. Back door, front door and mums. You could share a packet with a friend and this will reduce the overall cost. I just gave mine away! Overall I am glad I bought them and would buy them again.
I saw these Cupcake Keys online and knew that I had to have them! I bought my set from www.amazon.co.uk for £5.00.
Product description: "Sweeten your keys with these cute cupcakes. Don't get all keyed up! Get your life organised with these tasty cupcake keycaps.

Each set contains six key caps with cute cupcake designs. I love sweet treats and these cupcake design key covers have a really fun and playful look to them. Each key cap has a different design with an amusing facial expression and neat little details like frosting and sprinkles for extra decoration. The key caps have a colourful pastel background and each one is a different shade which can help you to instantly tell the difference between the keys you carry on your keychain. Even the packaging is lovely, with the key caps arranged as though they are displayed on a cake stand.
I primarily bought these key covers because I like the way that they look, but they do also serve a purpose and can be particularly helpful if you have a set of keys where it is hard to tell them apart without some clear form of identification. The key caps fit neatly over the head of the key to cover it and the different designs and colours give a quick and easy reference point to identify which key is which. They're made of a rubbery material which is very stretchy and will fit over most keys. There is also a hole at the top to allow you to place the keys back onto a keyring. I found that the key caps do add some extra bulk onto the size of the key itself and it was really quite hard to fit the key back onto my keyring as it needed a lot of force to get it back into place. Afterwards this has not caused any further problems though. I can't say I have enough keys to require 6 covers, but that means I was able to pick and choose my favourite from the bunch and there were some leftover I could have used as spares if it weren't for the fact that one of my friends saw them and loved them so much that I let him have the rest!
The main issue I've had is that one of my keys is not a standard shape and has a square-ish top to it. Over the past two months this has caused the key cap to stretch out of shape and it has torn through, first the top of the frosting fell off, and now it has eventually come away completely leaving me with a bare key once again. I would advise only to bother with these covers if your keys have a nice rounded shape at the top, otherwise although the material will stretch to fit over it, this will wear over time and break as I have experienced.
Overall I think these are a fun little item which would make a nice treat for a home baker, and are helpful for keeping keys organised.
