Very interesting. I haven't seen this one before. I would like to hear about successes or flops as well.

Personally, I have never imagined a creature such as this. It has not been a problem to fill a cup cake. I wouldn't want it simply because it would just take up more space I don't have. But others may feel differently about this.

I'm with gritswife. Although it looks interesting, how many times would it actually be put to use? More parts, not enough space in my storage. How many novelty items have you all bought with the "this is totally going to cure ________ problem". got it, and have only used it once because of the PITA factor? I have boxes full of those!

lol thanks .... I doubt I would purchase it, I am cheap like that ... but I work at hsn so I get a discount lol and sometimes these little novelty things are kinda cool, definitely looks like it saves time and mess though when having to hollow cupcakes

I dont watch those networks at all, but I know that if I worked at one...ugh, I'd have a house full of [email protected] and I'd be poor...lol. More power to you!

It takes 2 seconds to plunge a tip into a cuppie and fill it up.. this I would file under 'totally un-necessary tools'. icon_wink.gif

Wow - that looks to me like it would leave a HUGE hole/indentation in the top of a cupcake, unless I am wrong in how it appears to be used. I would think this would cause a larger problem than it would solve - IMHO.

lol I never watched those networks either until I started working here. But I have to say they are starting to carry a lot of really great things. a lot of name brand clothing and makeup that you find in department stores and I get a nice little discount on that cupcake courier everyone loves lol. But yes it is hard to sell soe of these things to ppl and not want to buy it myself lol.

I think it's cool, unnecessary, but cool. I love to buy all the stuff that I so don't need icon_lol.gif

Waste of money for anyone who can use a piping bag. It's a novel idea and I am sure there are some people who will think it's cool (as evidenced by the fact that it's sold out) but not me.

I agree it takes just a few seconds to fill your cupcake anyway and I have to save the space I ( almost ) have left for things I have to have. Let us know what you hear about how it works though.

I wouldn't buy one personally because I just use a piping bag and tip to fill my cupcakes. But when I first looked at it, I thought it wouldn't leave a huge hole in the top because the cupcake would rise above it. But then I realized the silicone piece would have to come out of the cupcake so it would pull a big hole in the top of the cupcake. SO I don't know really if it would work well or not. Interesting though...

there must be another use for this gadget other than just filling a cupcake w/filling. what about using the cupcake for a desert server??? you know how they have those chocolate cordial cups maybe a layered desert??? I don't think I could justify purchasing such an item, but, thinking out of the box icon_rolleyes.gif

Wouldn't you have a cupcake with filling coming out of the bottom, it's so simple to stick a tip in and squeeze. And who want's to clean that!! Not Me.

I wouldn't want to use it for what they are suggesting but I am thinking it might be good to bake angel food cupcakes and fill the cavity with fresh strawberries...no icing.

I will never buy another Debby Meyer product. Her "green bags" suck and were a complete waste of $20.

Melvira Posted 1 Jan 2009 , 7:29pm

I don't think it would work well for making dessert cups because it just leaves a smallish hole. You really couldn't get much in there. JMHO!

I wouldn't waste my money on it!

her green boxes are AWESOME! I have never tried her bags but I pick fresh strawberries every summer but it is like a 45 minute drive to the farm so we pick a TON at a time and after 2 weeks in the box they were good, infact I went on vacation and thought I needed to freeze them before I left but in the mad rush to get things packed I forgot to freeze them. I came home a week later (3 weeks in the box now) expecting them to be moldy and they were just then starting to get a tad dry but were still firm and perfectly good. I used them for muffins and fresh strawberry cake .... YUMMY!

I could see this added to the next time someone posts a

"Cake Tools You Wish You'd Never Bought" thread.

Someone gave me one of those green bags to try - yes, they suck. The boxes sound like something worth me trying. Anyone else ever used them?
