Tulip-Shaped Tart Molds/Muffin Cups

Even though silicone muffin cups aren’t something I would choose over a regular muffin tin, they do have some advantages thanks to their flexibility. These Tulip-Shaped Muffin Cups, for instance, double as miniature tart molds when they’re not being used for muffins or cupcakes. Each one has a crease about halfway down the side that allows you to fold over the muffin cup and create a stand-alone tart mold. The doubled over edge gives the molds some extra stability when you’re handling them. And even though you can use a regular muffin tin for small tarts, you often have to slide a knife underneath the tart to try and pry it up without breaking the crust; here,  shorter sides and nonstick silicone make it very easy to get the finished tart out of the mold.

The name of the cup comes from the fact that they have scalloped edges,  which gives them a look that is a little more floral and a little less plain than your standard muffin cup.The cups are 2.75-inches in diameter (standard muffin cup size) and are sold in sets of six, with three each of blue and red cups.

    Glad those silicone muffin cups have some use–mine have never been used because I realized after buying them that they weren’t going to work like I thought. I keep hoping I will find a good use for them. Maybe as containers for cookie decorations for a group??
