Silicone Cupcake Cases (Review)

If you saw my "What I got for Christmas" post, you'll have seen I got some silicone cupcake cases, alongside some other reusable baking goods. Well I finally got around to use the cases and I wanted to share my verdict.  

These silicone cupcake cases come in a pack of 12 or 24. When I saw these, I immediately thought that the colours are so bright and pretty. I've also actually been having quite a hard time buying cupcake cases at the moment, at least cute ones. 

If you've followed me for a while, you'll have seen I'm trying to be more sustainable and that starts with small changes at home. I love that these are completely infinitely reusable, plus are pretty. Of course, these can only be used when you know where they're going, for example, in a bake sale, paper versions will still be needed. 

The cases are surprisingly big. I would class them more as muffins than cupcakes, but it means it's a great sized treat, and can even be used for other things. At the moment, I'm loving individual desserts e.g. cheesecakes, but also snack plates. 

When using these, I was really surprised at how much I like them. Not only they reusable, but also slip-proof which came in really handy, plus of course: waterproof, heat-resistant, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. I loved how easily the cupcakes can be taken out of the cases, they literally fold down so simply and without any damage. 

On the downside, I did find that the material made the cupcakes a little crispier around the edges so it had a bit of a harder crust around the sides, as well as the tops, unlike traditional cases, but I actually found myself getting used to this texture as I ate more. Also, bare in mind, I have a thing about texture! The other negative was the washing up! I wash my hand and it was a bit of a nightmare having to individually wipe each crease; I ended up finding that soaking them for a few minutes made it easier to then wipe more quickly. 

In the end, I think the benefits far outweigh any of the weaknesses. Get these and you won't be disappointed. They're super cute, really practical and high quality.
