Teacupcakes

As soon as I first saw these Teacupcake molds on the very cool Fred Flare website (fredflare.com), I knew I had to have some! Unfortunately, when I tried to place an order I learned they were sold out. But fortunately, I found them on eBay and they were much cheaper to boot!

My only beef is that I wish the package contained at least 8 or 12 molds, because really, you can't make *four* cupcakes, can you? (I can't.) So I guess I will always have extras to decorate, but for tea parties and a fun entertaining idea in general, I just love these silicone Teacupcake molds! I was glad I read the package instructions before using them, as I learned it is best to grease them with oil and not cooking spray, since the spray can discolor the molds. (The saucers aren't ovenproof, so it's only the teacup-shaped molds which go in the oven.)

I made chocolate cupcakes using a favorite recipe, one I know is a good make-ahead cupcake which is extra moist even two days later, and I will be surprising three girlfriends by showing up with these at my Tuesday night Bible study. I can't wait!

  4. These are absolutely adorable. I'm off to ebay to find them.

    What is so neat is that they look so cute with just a plain chocolate frosted top and nothing fancy added.

  6. OK I know I'm bing a little dense here . You serve them in the mold? The person pops it out at there place or eats it w/ a fork?? I think they are very cute but don't quite get the logistics.Agree more in a set would be better

  7. No problem, Belinda! Yes, you serve them in the mold, the cup-and-saucer set. (Although you COULD pop the cupcake out, I suppose, but I wouldn't.)

  8. Really cute!! I think you could get the same look by placing a cupcake with liner in a regular teacup and saucer to serve - provided you have a set with a complimentary shape!!

  11. Love these Angela! I use white milk glass punch cups to make cupcakes for tea parties; spray inside with cooking spray, then spoon in prepared batter to fill 2/3 full. Bake according to cake package directions for cupcakes. Frost when cool, or top with a scoop of ice cream. Susan T.

  12. When I first saw these advertised I thought maybe there was one mold only, but glad to hear there is at least the 4. Yes, 4 really isn't enough.
