Here is a wonderful Holiday Gift Idea for all the women (or cooks/foodies) in your life. A Mini Cupcake Maker! Why? Because everyone enjoys cupcakes. This little machine takes up very little space and provides tasty cupcakes (provided you have a good cupcake recipe, lol) in very little time. I'm sure just about anyone you gift this too will have a smile on their faces.
The Mini Cupcake Maker comes in white with a black non-stick surface that heats up in mere minutes. You have the option of using mini cupcake wrappers, as they fit perfectly. However, taking into account that most bags only have about 20-30 wrappers, I will go wrapper-less from now on. You don't need to make recipes from scratch, pick up some Betty Crocker, Pillsbury or other ready-to-make cake mix and pour it in. There 7 slots for batter and the cupcakes are ready in a mere 5 minutes.
We received this great little machine and we weren't expecting to get over 50+ mini cupcakes from only 1 box of read-to-make cake mix. I also wasn't expecting the cupcakes to taste better than the ones I make in out mini-cupcake tray in the oven. They were far better tasting, faster and more moist. The only thing I noticed was that the top didn't brown as it does in the oven, but we add frosting to ours so it wasn't much of a problem.
We LOVE our mini-cupcake make and can't wait to make some Red Velvet mini-cupcake next. For the women or foodies in your life, this will make a GREAT gift this Holiday! The Mini Cupcake Maker is available at ThinkGeek.com for $19.99, so make sure you pick one up!
