Mini Cupcakes- Product review

This year Santa brought Sydney a Bella Cucina Cupcake Maker
We made one of the recipes that came with the maker and it was terrible. The outsides were burned and the middle wasn't even cooked at all. We decided to clean it up and try it again another day. I was a little disappointed and thinking "what the heck did I buy?". We pulled it back out the next day and decided to just do a cake mix out of a box and try that. 

I put some red hot candies in the middle of some of them and pushed then into the batter. This turned out really good and gave them good flavor and the candy became chewy. (sorry this is kind of a blurry picture) 

It only took 3-5 min for these to cook and they turned out super light and fluffy! 

We tried this red and white striped frosting and a few of them turned out ok. Sometimes you couldn't really see the white frosting. It was kind of hard to squeeze out and was hard to control where it went on the cupcake. I don't think that I will ever use it again.

We used some Valentine's sprinkles to dip the cupcakes in. Sydney loved doing this. She had a lot of fun coming up with different designs.

 Sydney had a blast doing this and she can't wait to make different flavors. I would definitely recommend buying one of these for the kids or even just for yourself. They make the perfect size cupcakes for any kind of party.  I do recommend sticking with cake mixes and not trying their recipes that they provide.   

Do you have any treat makers that you have? like it? I would love to try some of the other ones in the future.

  1. I love cupcakes! These are so cute for valentines day...I think I need to try!


  2. I got this same cupcake maker for Christmas. Glad you mentioned about the recipes it came with so I don't waste my time with them!

  3. I have ot used this company's products but I are used the cake pops maker by BabyCakes. It was easy to use, made great cake pops the first time, and was easy to clean up. They are often on sale at Kohls, I think I got mine for $14, and then there was a $10 rebate on top of that! I think there product might be of better quality that this brand. I have seen this brand (at Targets I think) and they make few items per batch as well.
