A little while ago, VMHQ was the recipient of some super-fun kitchen goodies to try, and to give away. Chicago Metallic Bakeware has some of the cutest and most useful baking/cooking products I’ve seen, and we had a ball baking up a storm to test everything out.
First on our hit list was the Cupcake Creation Station. An all-in-one device to help you make the prettiest cupcakes on the block.
In one handy cupcake-shaped container, you will find piping nozzles, piping bags, and a special scoop to transfer your frosting into the bags.
You very cleverly sit the bags in the bottom of the container, use the scoop to fill it with frosting (I gave up after a while and used a spoon, but it’s pretty handy for getting every last drop!), and then attach the nozzle.
We made a chocolate version of this butter cake (which is my total favourite), and we also made wonderful orange madeleines (using this recipe, Pinned here), in the Chicago Metallic Madeleine pan, and some delightful strawberry-banana muffins in the 24-cup Mini Muffin Pan (recipe to come!). they lived up to their non-stick name, I was very impressed. Nervous, but impressed!
The lovely folk at Chicago Metallic are giving Veggie Mama readers the chance to win a pack of all three items to make your own baking fun!
One winner will receive:
The Cupcake Creation Station (which includes the retractable icing spatula, 4 decorating tips, and 50 plastic piping bags)
The Madeleine Pan: made from durable non-stick steel and dishwasher-safe
and the 24-cup Muffin Pan: non-stick, easy-release, dishwasher-safe.
All you need to do is tell me your most memorable baking moment. Accidentally slam Bindi Irwin’s 4th birthday cake in some elevator doors, like my friend did one time? Had a birthday cake fall completely apart an hour before your daughter’s first birthday party, like I did? (or forget to put flour in a cake and wonder why it didn’t rise, also like me?!). A winner will be judged on the basis of that comment next Tuesday, December 24 at noon Queensland time.
Australian residents only, please. The winner will be notified by email and named on this blog post.
Good luck! I look forward to hearing your stories
