Anyone use the silicone baking cups?
Are they better than using a cupcake pan and paper liners?
Thanks for any help.

only if you want a cupcake and no paper. I think most people prefer the cupcake to be in a paper cup.

l use them to make chocolate cups, l paint the inside with chocolate, let it set then flip them out! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the replies.
Good point JoAnnB. They are sold in so many stores that I thought maybe I had missed out on a good reason to use them for cupcakes.

That is a great idea yassy. I will try making chocolate cups with them.

They're nice when you have just a little bit of batter left over - I have a set that I use for that quite a bit. Makes a nice little cake for snacks! thumbs_up.gif

I own a set, bought them for making choc. cups and other stuff.

I do bake cupcakes in them...but they are a PIA when it comes to washing all the cupcake crumbs out of them. Plus I have to make sure the kids don't haul them off and lose them.

Paper liners are best unless you really need a cupcake without paper for some reason.

really? I think they are FABULOUS and I'm ready to throw away my regular muffin pans which take up valuable space. I put a paper liner inside the silicone cup, use a cookie scoop to fill the cups, bake them on a cookie sheet, and when I'm done, if I wasn't messy at all (and I was successful last time), I have no clean- up, no washing, nada!!! Now that is SWEET!

I think they separate best if the cake is completely cooled. the crust of the cake pulls clean (mostly). While they are hot, in my experience, they really don't want to come loose.

Has anyone used Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups? I'm looking for some silicone muffin cups with a 1-cup capacity and these seem like they might work, but I can't find anything online that says how much they hold. If someone owns them, could you just see if it will hold 1 cup for me? Or does anyone have any jumbo silicone muffin cups of another brand that they could recommend? They have to hold 1 cup of batter for them to work for me.
