Early Christmas Gift Guide Item #2: Silicone Cupcake Holders
Recently I was offered the opportunity to review these Silicone Cupcake Holders by California Kitchenware. We go through quite a few cupcake liners in our house so the idea that I could buy this one set and not have to keep buying the disposables was very attractive. It's especially appealing because this set of 12 cupcake holders is only $7.99 and FREE shipping with Amazon Prime.
As you can see they're bright and colorful. They fit the standard cupcake or muffin tin perfectly. I've already used them twice - once for banana bread muffins and then again for birthday cupcakes. Both times I found them super easy to use. I don't need any grease, the muffins or cupcakes pop out super easy when you turn the liner inside out. I worried that washing them would be difficult, but because you can turn them inside out, I was able to easily and quickly wash off the crumbs and residue inside of the cracks around the outside edge of these liners.
I haven't tried it yet, but you aren't even supposed to have to use the muffin pan, the silicone liners are supposed to stand up independently and cook just the same without the tin. They are freezer, oven, microwave and top rack of the dishwasher safe.
This is absolutely a product I can wholeheartedly recommend. I don't even have any negatives at this point. You should get a set for you and a few others as gifts - it's something they would absolutely use if they bake at all.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
