Cupcakes and my new KitchenAid muffin tins - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  It seems like everyone is having a birthday lately!  It was my birthday last week along with many other people I know.  My friends and I at my apartment decided to have a "Libra" party because there are so many of us with birthdays around the same time. We had a potluck BBQ and I signed up to bring cupcakes!

The timing was perfect because the nice folks at KitchenAid sent me some muffin tins to try out!

Honestly, I thought muffin tins are muffin tins and there really isn't much of a difference! I was so surprised when I open the package and found these!  The are so heavy duty and they are small so I'm able to bake more cupcakes in my oven at one time because I can turn them different directions so I can fit more on the shelf!  These definitely feel like more of  professional bakeware than the muffin tins I already had!  They sent me regular size and also the mini size! 
I should have known they would be superior because I have so many KitchenAid products and they are all wonderful. I love my KitchenAid mixer that I've had since about 1980!

...and I'm happy to say that I received so many compliments on my cupcakes! 

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

Update:  I wasn't just imagining there are so many birthdays around mine! I heard on the radio that September is the number 1 birthday month in the U.S.  It must have something to do with New Years and cold winters! haha!  My birthday, September 24 is the 6th most popular birthday in the U.S.  I never knew that! September 16th is the #1 date so if that's your birthday you share it with a lot of others!

Those cupcakes look delicious, I love the way you have iced them. I am still looking for a really nice gluten free recipe that rises and is nice and light. Lots of lovely inspiration to browse over this weekend :)

those little cakes look so delightful, you have done a lovely job of icing them, they remind me of small peonies.
