Premium 12 Cup Silicone Muffin Pan & Cupcake Baking Pan by BrilliantChef

I have been meaning to try one of these silicone baking pans for awhile now, so I was excited when mine arrived in the mail.   My little girls LOVE that it’s pink!  It comes with a spatula, pastry brush and paper cups.  The spatula and pastry brush I didn’t really need, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to have extra (and if it’s a gift, it’s great to give them).  The paper cups were a nice addition because honestly I’m always running out of those things!  Someone mentioned a smell to the pan  – I didn’t notice it, but then again as soon as I got it I threw it in the dishwasher.  It’s nice to not have to worry about a pan that gets the little rusty stuff on the edges!  They do recommend to use a baking sheet underneath so you don’t have to worry about it being too flimsy.  I included pictures pre and post baking – someday I will figure out how to fill a muffin cup 2/3 of the way up!  The muffins baked very well, I’d say I loved them but it was a new recipe for me and it still needs some tweaking of the flavor profile.  But that’s the fault of my recipe, not the pan! The paper cups did have some stuff stuck to them, but honestly that always happens when I bake muffins or cupcakes.  I do want to still try baking without the paper cups to see how that will work out.  Overall I’m extremely pleased with the product and would definitely recommend it!
