Mini Cupcake Maker

Mini Cupcake Maker

If you had an Easy Bake Oven growing up and liked it for the fun of baking small batches of miniature dessets, but are now a little bit too old to appreciate the unique flave and texture of the teeny cake mixes that come with such a gadget (or are looking for something a little hotter than a lightbulb to do the baking), you might want to get yourself a Mini Cupcake Maker to play around with. The machine looks a bit like a George Foreman grill from the outside. Inside, it has 7 nonstick mini muffin cavities. Put your batter in, close the lid, and you’ll have a small batch of miniature cupcakes, muffins or brownies in just a couple of minutes. It’s also not a bad idea if you’re looking for a little more portion control and don’t want to make a dozen or two dozen cupcakes at a time, although since most recipes aren’t scaled for such an amount, you’ll have to experiment with halving recipes when you work with one of these.

I think that you’re still going to get the best results with a “real” oven, but if time and space are at a premium, one of these little gadgets might not turn out to be such a bad thing – especially if it means you can have freshly baked cupcakes at a moment’s notice!

    This is so cute! I doubt that I’d invest in one, but it looks like fun.

    I have one I bought at Macy’s and love it! I have made so many cute fast party treats! I think it’s a must have for my tea party girls because I have even made biscuits cut top and put tuna or hummus.

    my niece got me one of these for Christmas – at first I thought it wouldn’t get used much, since I do alot of baking, and usually make dozens of cupcakes at a time, I didn’t think I would have a need for 7 minis, lol – well was I wrong. I used it today -Christmas – and made some spicy ham and cheesy biscuits and they were delish, and there was just enough! I’ll use it again and again for both sweet and savory cakes/breads/muffins…. the possibilities are endless. Taking it to another nieces home for New Years Eve party to make some goodies!! easy to use – easy clean up, highly recommend !
