Babycakes Cupcake Maker and Cookbook Giveaway


Cupcakes and small sized treats are all the rage right now. And it’s no wonder, the flavor combinations and creative decorating I’ve seen all around are amazing and they’re perfect portion of sweetness, not too much, not too little, just right. Plus, cupcakes and other individual sized treats are always convenient for parties.

So when I was contacted about trying out the Babycakes Cupcake Maker I was tickled to see what it was all about.



The Babycakes Cupcake Maker is a small appliance that bakes evenly, from top and bottom (like a waffle press), 8 cupcakes at a time, and very quickly too, in 5-8 minutes on average. Not only can you create cupcakes or muffins, but savory treats of all kinds too, like tortilla cups, and pizza bites.

In no time I had a small batch of muffins warm and ready for an afternoon snack.



They also sent me a copy of 175 Best Babycakes Cupcake Maker Recipes cookbook which is chock full of sweet and savory selections. The ladies who put this cookbook together, Kathy Moore and Roxanne Wys, sure are a creative team, the cookbook is a really good mix and a jumping off place for coming up with your own combos. There are even sections for after-school snacks and gluten-free options. The Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes and Coconut Cream Cupcakes have me drooling…



What a fun gift huh? Both the Babycakes Cupcake Maker and cookbook can be found at the Babycakes Shop, Amazon, Kohl’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, as well as other retailers.


And guess what?

There’s a giveaway! Woo hoo!
