Silicone baking cups for cupcakes or muffins (or whatever!) are definitely the way to go. I wish I had discovered these sooner. Before I had these, I ran out of paper cupcake baking liners quickly, and then just avoided making cupcakes for months and months before I would eventually restock. It's a silly thing, but I could never manage to have the papers on hand when I needed them. Problem solved with this product. Having an easy-to-use and reusable cupcake liner really solves all of my problems - I always have them on hand, and I can make a small or large batch of cupcakes or muffins whenever I want them. I also find them easier to work with - they don't get stuck to the baked cupcake like papers sometimes do, and because they're a little heavier than paper, they don't shift around as much when you're trying to fill them. Overall, these have made one aspect of baking a lot easier for me.
