TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL!

I made cupcakes tonight with my handy dandy Babycakes Cupcake maker.




First off, I ruined the first 8. It says to go ahead and throw all your batter in the machine and then plug it in. Which is fine. It should have said "Please pre-grease this cupcake prison and then maybe you'll be able to get your delicious cakes out". But it didn't. My first 8 mini-cakes were ruined. I couldn't get them out. My heat resistant spatula (i assume it was, because i've never had a problem with it before) MELTED trying to get the cakes out. I spent the next 20 minutes or so trying to get melted spatula out of my cupcake maker.

Once I finally got the cake holders cleaned, I followed the directions impeccably, but pre-greased with a bit of olive oil before I added my batter. So we have Oil+batter+5 minutes=Yummeh goodness.

However, because I'm working with a concave surface, how in the hell am i supposed to get my little cakes out?? My spatula obviously did not work. I'm not supposed to use metal! So what do I do? I use a spoon and give no fucks about it. I didn't scratch anything and my cupcakes came out semi-perfect (and they will be perfect when I make more tomorrow).

I give Babycakes Cupcake Maker 3 out of 5 stars. They could improve by including silicone cupcake inserts so you don't burn your fingerprints off trying to get your tiny little cakes out of this contraption.

I was just looking at that machine in the supermarket the other day! I wonder if you could use those baking cups in your machine? Like these ones http://www.wilton.com/store/site/department.cfm?id=DA556239-423B-522D-FF9589C29CEBCF6F&fid=DA556258-423B-522D-F42021F40FC71363

The mental picture of your spatula melting made me laugh way too hard.
