The Pros and Cons of Silicone Bakeware

I have so many silicone baking cups, and I decided to write about it on Do you use them? Do you like them? Even if you don't always bake with silicone baking cups, there are at least 12 things you can do with them. Below is an excerpt of the post and you can read it in full on Cupcakes.

Silicone baking cups are reusable. You can just wash them after use, and you don't have to buy paper liners again. Silicone baking cups are nonstick which is good. It is bad when so much of the cupcake gets stuck on the paper liners. Silicone baking cups cool down quickly. This is beneficial so that the sooner the cupcakes are cooled means the sooner that the cupcakes can be frosted. Silicone baking cups are versatile in that they can be used for either baking or freezing.

Friday Links: CakeSpy, Ice Cream and Coca Cola Cupcakes

It was great to have Jessie Oleson Moore on last #getbaked chat. If you missed it, you can watch it now on YouTube. Our next #getbaked web chat will be about baking bread and making pizza dough.  Below is an ice cream illustration by Jessie; every Friday, she does a round-up links. Her ice cream illustration is especially timely since the listeria outbreak that has affected both Blue Bell and Jenis Splendid Ice Cream. I am a fan of both so I hope ice cream production will resume soon.

Here's a recipe for Coca Cola cupcakes.

Cake and Cupcakes For Earth Day at Botanical Garden

I celebrated Earth Day locally by going to the Native Plant Botanical Garden at Georgia Perimeter College. To celebrate both Earth Day and the @5th Anniversary of the garden, there were a cookout with hot dogs and there was cake, cookies and cupcakes. There was also a plant raffle and I won a Prairie Trillium.

Celebrated #earthday by going to local botanical garden. I won a Prairie Trillium. Now how to keep it from dying.

Do ladybugs bring luck? Some cultures believe seeing a ladybug brings good luck. The person may then succeed in love, have good weather, experience financial success or simply receive some other desired wish.
