Creating Rainbows That Don't Cost a Pot of Gold

The color gels are easy to mix and result in bright and pleasing decorations. The gels work well with both canned icing and home made icing. The variety of colors and the potential color combinations were worth the cost of the product. I highly recommend the color gels for those who decorate cakes and cupcakes.

Many Marvels with the Mini Muffin Pan
PostedJune 8, 2011

In addition to making mini- muffins, including fresh blueberry, oatmeal and fresh strawberry, I used the mini muffin pan to make brownie bites. At a recent family birthday get together, the brownie bites were such a hit that I wish I had made double. The children scarfed them up in no time. Due to time restraints, I used boxed brownie mix. The muffin pan baked evenly, was easy to handle and very easy to clean and store. At the next get together that includes the children, I hope to pre-mix a large amount of brownie batter, divide it into smaller containers, and allow the children to add their own embellishments such as mini chips, marshmellow, walnuts, pecan, hazel nuts etc. as they prefer to individualize the browines. Due to the smaller size of the brownie bites, total baking time was reduced. A summer browinie event with accompanying home made ice cream seems to be in the very near future.
Although my neighbor declined a large blueberry muffin, while we were discussing his home repair project, he easily consumed a handful of the mini muffins. I look forward to using the mini muffin pan again, and will be inclined to try it for other types of receipes. I highly recommend this product.

Easy Three C's "Cookies, Cakes and Cupcakes"

The Cuisinart Electric cookie press has proven to be a solution to enhance the appearance of the "three C's". My twelve year old grand-daughter and I found the product easy to use and to clean. We were able to decorate all three of the "C's". I have been encouraging my 12 year old grand-daughter's interest in cup-cake, and cake design. She has worked successfully with marzipan and fondant for cake decorating which has proven labor intensive. The Cuisinart electric cookies press was just fun to use. Exploring the different designs with the various tips allowed for some interesting cup cakes and provided an outlet for her blosseming artistic talents. The receipes included with the cookie press were easy to follow, and proved to be tasty. I highly recommend this product.

I have found the Norpro meatballer a very useful tool. Not only does it shape the meatballs with out handling the meat ball mixture which adds to the tenderness of the meatball, it has proven helpful for baking. With the current resurgence of "cup cakes" as a form of art, I have found that when I spay the meatballer with cooking spay, I can use it to easily scoop cake batter into the cupcake muffin papers. The amount of batter remains consistant, and I can control the flow of the batter to the inside of the muffin papers without getting batter all over the muffin pan. The Chef's Norpro meatballer is easy to handle, clean and store. I will be looking for other uses for my new toy.

One of the best purchases

Way back in the day I had a tupperwear mat that I used when working with different types of dough. I purchased the Chef's silicone pastry mat and have used it several times beginning with the day it was delivered. When I slightly dampen the surface on which I place the mat, the mat stays in place regardless of how many directions I use to work the pastry. unlike the mat that I had long ago. This Chef's silicone mat cleans up like a snap and can be rolled into a tubular shape for easy storage without any damage to the product.
I have been teaching my granddaughter to bake and she was thrilled by the ease of use and especially how quickly clean up was. I will be purchasing another one for my budding pastry cheif and have recommended it to my friends.
