Just wondering if anyone purchased these Bake huggers when they were on HSN. I saw the episode of Homemade Millionaire when she won, but missed them on HSN to see more about them.

just curious if anyone has used them yet and if they were worth the cost. To me it seems fairly easy to make with all of the cutting machines out there now, expecially since it's just rice paper, but sometimes buying things from somewhere else is just easier.

here is a link to them on HSN if anyone missed them on either show.

Yep, reading the ingredients, it looks like they're basically printed wafer paper/rice paper cups.

I can see cutting wrappers on a machine, but having to make bottoms, adhere them, and have them hold batter.............a lot of fiddley work.

My opinion is that at nearly .50/ea., they're pricey and quite honestly, I don't like the texture or flavor of wafer/rice paper, so I'd tear it off anyway, wasting it.

I remember on the show she said that they were made from potatoes.

very interesting... but if I told my clients that they were made out of potato, they probably wouldn't want it (even though you can't taste it)

But they're just a bottomless wrapper--no bottom on the wrapper right? So it's just cake on the bottom? You have to use pan release or something? I'm not totally getting it.

K8memphis - yea your correct there is no bottom. So greasing the pan and trying to keep the bottom of the cupcake from drying out would be some issues to contend with.

I think it's a novel concept, and making them myself with an edible printer i think they could be an interesting selling point since they'd be customizable, but wanted to get some feed back from other cakers.

I would think these work like the reg. cupcake wraps you can get in the stores (or make)....only they are edible. You put them on after the cupcakes are baked. Just my guess icon_biggrin.gif

actually you bake right in them. You use these as your liners. I think that is what intrigued me so much, one less step than the cupcake wraps

their cups are made out of wood pulp though... i wouldn't want to eat that, i'm guessing these are similiar to the regular cupcake liners on the market?

I didn't get to see the show, but I don't understand these wrappers. The wrapper is where the baker holds them up to move them, decorate them; where the party hostess grabs to move them from the box to the table, etc. Why would I want to eat that? I just don't get it. I use a knife and server to cut/serve cake so as not to touch it, so why would I want to eat a cupcake wrapper handled by 2 or 3 people? If I'm missing something, please explain...

I happened to watch Homemade Millionaire and thought this was a great concept for baking! The illustrations make decorating so easy and the edible side of it is just so neat, no waste!

Handling baked goods occurs quite often... I for one do not wear gloves when making cookies, pastries, placing cookies, pastries, brownies,... on a plate.

The idea is a great one and when I tried to order them, the people spoke, they were sold out!

I wish the inventor the best success.

You should definitely wear gloves when handling ready to eat food. Around here it's a HD requirement.
