My Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups Review

Well, once again, I am in love with silicone as it relates to kitchen products! Last week I shared a silicone baking mat and, this week I am happy to share my Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups review! 

At first, I wasn't overly-excited as I figured, okay it's just a baking cup... for cupcakes & muffins, no big deal. Boy was I wrong? Since silicone baking cups are non-stick and don't tear like normal cupcakes wrappers, these baking cups go well beyond the limitations of a standard cupcake wrapper.

What do mean by that? Well, you know all those fancy lasagna-cup recipes, quick and easy breakfast-in-the-oven recipes and mini cheesecake ideas? Obviously, those recipes don't stand up to well to paper baking cups and, putting them directly in the muffin pan can make removing the food a tedious task to avoid it from breaking apart during removal. Trust me! I've tried to make the mini lasagna cups in the muffin pan and they were hard to remove without tearing the noodles, thus causing them to lose their visual appeal, and the pan was a mess to clean up. However, with the silicone baking cups, sticking is not an issue. Not only are they super easy to remove them but, clean up is a breeze.


With the Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups you simply turn the cup over and your cupcakes {or other food} falls right out! No sticking, no breaking, no tearing... just clean and easy! As you can see from the image above, I cooked half of a box of cupcake mix in the silicone baking cups and half in the standard paper & tin cupcake wrappers. Notice that there was NO sticking, no crumbs... nothing, except for a little bit of coloring that was in the sprinkles that was part of the cupcake mix. And, even the dye wiped right out so clean up was still a breeze. {I had company show up about 3 minutes before I was supposed to take the cupcakes out of the oven so they did get a little overdone... but were delicious!}

I like the idea that with the Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups, since the cupcake pops right out without any issues, you can actually frost the entire cupcake. Tops and sides! How cute would that be? No wrappers in the way and no crumbling sides so the icing stays nice and pretty without a bunch of crumbs. 

I can't wait to try the Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups with my mini lasagnas because I know they will turn out perfect. I had planned on trying them before posting this review but I have been super busy getting ready for the launch of my new website {Eek, you guys are the first to hear about that so keep that secret quiet!} I promise to update this post with all the awesome ways I use them as I go along.

***You will want to add a little bit of extra batter to the baking cups to ensure that they rise to the top of the cup. This is a good thing though! Just like with cake pan wraps that are used to bake even-top cakes, the silicone acts as a barrier from the hot metal which allows the cupcakes to rise and cook evenly! Therefore, you don't end up with a huge dome on top of the cupcake. It also makes the edges and bottom more moist and evenly cooked. The cupcakes in these images were the first thing I cooked with my Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups so I didn't consider the fact that the silicone would help distribute the heat evenly so I didn't have domes on them. I did, however, have beautifully domed muffins {but didn't get a photo before the family scarfed them down while they were still warm!}.

So, overall, I have tried the Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups on a few different recipes and so far, they have been incredibly awesome. Not only do my cupcakes and muffins bake more evenly {thanks to the silicone heating them evenly instead of the hot metal touching the sides of the food or a paper wrapper} but, clean up is a breeze, no more torn paper cups and honestly, I really love the colors! I would like to see Brighid's Kitchen come out with a few more options like a set of solid colors for particular recipes and special occasions but, for now, I'm happy with my brightly-colored silicone cups! 

Whether you love to bake or, are just learning to bake, the Brighid's Kitchen Silicone Baking Cups are a must have. Plus, they make a great gift idea for anyone who enjoys cooking or baking!
