Daisy Cupcake Pan

Daisy Cupcake Pan

Back around Valentine’s Day, Williams-Sonoma was promoting a fantastic little pan that produced cupcakes and muffins with heart-shaped crowns. The trick to that pan was a shallow, heart-shaped depression in the pan’s surface around each of the muffin cavities. When the cups were filled up to the top, the batter would spread as they baked and form a heart top.

As much as I liked those, I think I have to give Chicago Metallic’s Daisy Cupcake Pan a nod for being even sweeter than the heart pan. The nonstick pan operates on much the same principle as the heart pan, but has more pronounced depressions for forming the petals of the daisies for a slightly better shape and a more dramatic – by which I mean “adorable,” in this case – effect. Plus, the pan makes a full batch of 12 muffins, rather than the 6 of the heart pan.

These would make really cute spring cupcakes and would really spruce up the presentation of some tasty bran muffins or banana muffins for a spring/summer brunch.

    Though I’m obsessed with cupcakes of the adorable variety, I must say that these pans would be really splendid for muffins. I can see these muffins at brunch, totally.

    I love it! Back in January I bought the W-S heart shaped cupcake/muffin pan. I was all excited and I do mean ALLLLL excited. But it didn’t perform well and I didn’t get a single cupcake out of it that really resembled the gorgeous creations displayed on the packaging 🙁 I really like this daisy shaped pan – and knowing me I’ll be picking it up! If I do, and I’m successful, I’ll be sure to post about it on my blog. I had planned to do a big Valentine’s Day post with pics of the heart-shaped cupcakes but the results were so dismal I ended up doing a spread about homemade truffles instead. Thanks for the head’s up about the daisy pan – I love the idea!!
