AJust saw some paper baking cones, yes cones. That's not a mistype. I have never heard of these and am just wondering if anyone uses these to bake in. They have their own special pan so you get the cone shape. I saw them on http://www.welcomehomebrands.com/Commercial.html and if you click on "Catalog" they are on page 17. Any thoughts? Or are these more of a novelty item? They even sell a pan you use to bake them in. Seems a bit strange to me. Cones are used for nuts and crepes and such, not muffins or cupcakes, lols.

Those are super cool!   Thanks for posting, craftybanana.

 

I am a hobby baker and have used paper bakeware; it works great and looks very nice.  Unfortunately, unless you are buying/baking in bulk, the cost can be prohibitive.

 

IF I was selling at a Farmer's Market, and IF I had the knowledge that the Farmer's Market was a profitable endeavor, I could see these being a very popular treat.  Bake, swirl buttercream, add sprinkles, sell.  Great concept.

I like the paper bakeware for gifts and such, just have never seen these cones before.

I hadn't seen them either.  It would take a large scale operation with a LOT of sales to make something that unique profitable.  If they were available in smaller quantities, it sure would be fun to make them for friends and family parties!

I don't know if you can get the cones at a retail store. I bought a few paper pans by them at Target, then I went online just to see what else they make. I wish our Target carried half of what they sell, so many pretty pans, liners....
