I bought this because it was on sale and because it seemed like it might be fun, but i did not expect it to work as well as it did. Just used it for the first time yesterday with half a cake mix and my five-year-old daughter helping me. It was so much funi plugged it in early because i wasn’t sure how long it would take to preheat, but it was ready in just a couple of minutes. We used paper cupcake liners and filled them about 2/3-3/4 full and they baked up perfectly rounded and nicely brown on top where they touched the surface in about four minutes. Everybody said they were really good (i can’t eat gluten but i thought they smelled great and had a moist, soft texture). Cleanup couldn’t have been easier, just wipe the nonstick surface with a damp towel. I’m excited to try other recipes in this, some gf stuff, tarts, etc. It’s also wonderful to be able to bake something easy with my daughters. Much rather make real food in this than use something like an easy bake oven. As an extra touch, a good quality icing bag, coupler, and tips are included, as well as a crust cutter and a former.
I bought this for my daughter for christmas. The maker is well made and sturdy. It comes with some great accessories such as the mini pie crust cutting tool and the pastry bag with different tips. Upon making our first batch of mini cupcakes, i did not that you have to move real quickly when pouring the batter into the cups. Old is not the best at moving quickly, she is what i like to call a ‘dawdler’. So in an attempt to not burn the cupcakes, i ended up doing the batter part. The cupcakes cooked just as directed and came out of the molds very easily. However, i will note that you need to be careful removing the cupcakes as the maker is very hot.
I bought this as a birthday gift for my niece. She loved it, and used it immediately– she reported that it was super easy to use and remove the cupcakes.

I got this as a gift for christmas, and just used it this weekend to make cupcakes. My fiancé and i used a whole yellow butter cake mix, and filled the cups about 3/4 full- like someone else said. They were done in eight minutes. They might take a little less but we liked them a little more brown. More than eight was too much. We got a huge bunch of cupcakes and decided to give some to mom and dad. Also since mine was just simple yellow cake, i used a condiment squirt bottle i have on hand that i used to drizzle caramel or fudge on other deserts, so it was a cinch to fill it and use it rather than spoon the batter into the paper cups. The icing bag was fun also- i decorated cakes some years ago in a bakery for a little while, so it was fun to play with the icing. This was fun and easy to use- i wasn’t expecting such a cool machine- i though it would be hokey.
Bought this for myself and i love it. I make so many things in it i never would have expected it had so mant uses.
We all love the cupcake maker. My daughter is 9 and received this for christmas. She is able to make cupcakes out of brownie mix or cake mix and will be trying mini pies as well. They come out very moist if you don’t over cook. It’s fun for her since we don’t have to start the oven and it’s something she can do on her own that creates a treat for everyone. The mini cupcake liners that i bought to go with are too small. The cupcake maker came with several liners, but i’m not sure where to get more of that size. They are a little bigger than minis but smaller than a normal size. The cupcake maker cleans easily and i like the redi bought this because my daughter thought she wanted an easy bake oven,but i knew she was too big for one. This is far more practical and more her speed.
My son is a little mini-chef so i looked at easy bake ovens but most are marketed toward girls (and look it) and also the reviews are just so-so. My son got this this for christmas and by 1:30 pm had made numerous batches and taken them to all the neighbors. It is very easy, and i was pleasantly surprised that it is also easy to clean (and we used no cooking spray). If you get this as a gift for a child, you may want to buy some cake mix, icing, and decorations. It was his very favorite christmas gift and he couldn’t believe that it was ‘all his. ‘ i (ironically) got an extremely minor burn on my forearm – it gets very hot – but you’re basically good if you only touch the red parts.
I was very skeptical before buying this item because there weren’t too many reviews, but i am really glad i took the plunge. The cupcake maker does exactly what it is advertised to do and the cakes come out perfect, that is if you follow the instructions and online recipes (takes some practice, but you’ll get there).
When i first saw this gadget i thought, ‘what do i need one of those for?’. But after reading a food blog i realzed it makes mini pies. Amazon had a good price, and even though it isn’t used much, it is a cool thing to have. The ‘tools’ and instructions needed to make mini pies are included.
Although it is much cheaper, like half, at sam’s club, where it only comes in (beautiful, cute as a button) pink. However, i bought this for my two grandsons, and it is a good boy color. From pictures they sent, it looks a cherry red. But then one of them said he would prefer pink.I bought the pink for myself. All the grandchildren enjoy this. They are interested every step of the way. I have to say, the cupcake papers are an unusual size, and directions say to order from company. They are not small and not regular. I have not looked for them yet, michael’s might carry them.
I liked it so much, i bought one for my daughters for christmas. I also like the small recipe booklet that tells how to use only part of a cake mix. Lots of fun with the grand kids.
I just made mini cherry pies today are they are just yummy made cupcakes the first time it is very fast and clean up is easy.
