Another Use for Bakeware!

>> Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Just around the time I started Tot School with Nudgie, I found this great blog from Michelle over at the Muffin Tin Mom.  She has this great concept of serving meals/snacks in muffin tins.  What a GREAT idea!  I never, in a million years, would have ever thought of that!

Well, the other day, she asked on her FB book if there were any stores near us that sold Wilton products.  I responded to her and she asked me to write about some of my favorite Wilton products and why I liked them.

First, I had never done a muffin tin meal at all.  But after reading Michelle's blog, I thought I'd give it a try with Nani first.  For lunch.  After picking her up from Kindergarten.  You would have thought I had given her the world!

So, I served her lunch in Wilton's Wilton's silicon mini leaf and pumpkin mold.  I actually got mine last summer at a clearance rack at Hobby Lobby

You would have thought that I invented chocolate!  She loved it so much!  And every day she has been asking for lunch in the "pumpkin" pan!  I personally love this pan for making mini pumpkin breads!  I have been finding the silicon bakeware easier and easier to use!

Another score from Hobby Lobby were these adorable silly critters silicone cupcake baking cups, also from Wilton.  I picked up ours at another clearance sale at Hobby Lobby.  There were only two sets left, so I bought both sets -- one for Nudgie and one for Nani.

In fact, we used them again today for the movie-themed Muffin Tin Monday.  (Ok, so I'm a day behind!)  Our theme was the Disney Princess movies.  I made her "glass slipper sandwiches", Snow White apples, "Under the Sea" yogurt, and "Beauty & the Beast" juice.  I loved seeing her eyes light up when she saw this waiting for her when she came home from school!

I love browsing the baking sections of the craft stores.  You just never know what you're going to find!  I do have a wish list built up -- and some of the items I'd love to add to our collections some day are this:

Bear Silicon Baking Cups:

Flower Silicon Baking Cups:

And, of course, anything from the Disney Princess or Tinkerbell bakeware collection! 

(If anyone has any connections with Wilton, I'm happy to do a product review for them!  Please?  Pretty please?  LOL!)

So what are some of your favorite baking "accessories"?

We do this too. We have the Wilton bear cups and some flower cups (ours aren't the nice Wilton flower cups though - we found them in the dollar spot at Target). I love the shoe sandwiches!

My kids love muffin tin meals, and especially when they are served in those Wilton's silicon molds =)

Oh my goodness...these are so cute! And so is your little one modeling how well they work :o) Hm...will have to keep my eyes open for some of these (for our future grandbabies! haha)

I've never baked in the silicone muffin do they do?

Blessings & Aloha!
