Babycakes Cupcake Maker

My air isn’t working correctly. I think we may end up having to replace our almost 20 year old unit and buy a new one. However, here in Chicago, it has been super hot, and we are looking at ways to keep cool. Turning on the oven is not an option when I can’t get my house below 80 degrees. That being said, my new Babycakes Cupcake Maker has been quite the lifesaver. I am able to make a box of mini cupcakes and not heat up my kitchen. (Note:  Babycakes treat makers work best with moist mixes.)

Babycakes offers a line of electric cake makers that heat up in five minutes, require very little cleaning, and bake treats in eight minutes or less. Whether you have a craving for cupcakes, cake pops or donuts, Babycakes appliances help create quick family desserts or an easy treat for that last-minute party invite. The treat makers come with dozens of recipes to challenge you to go beyond the expected confections and try your hand at quiche, mini-pies, muffins, breakfast puffs or whatever else you can think up.

I am amazed with my Babycakes Cupcake Maker.  Not only does it not heat up my kitchen, it is super easy to use.

The kids and I made cupcakes on a Friday evening. It was super easy. The only thing is that the directions don’t tell you to spray the unit with cooking oil. If you don’t, they cupcakes stick (so my first round were a bit interesting getting out). However, once I sprayed my unit with Pam, it was easy to get everything out. This was so easy to use that my 7 year old could have done this herself! The next time I need to make cupcakes for Madison’s school, you can bet that I will be using my Babycakes Cupcake Maker!

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Babycakes and received a product sample and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade

Bill loves anything that is Buffalo.  He likes hot and spicy which is why I knew he was going to love trying KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade.  This authentic sauce is spicy with a tangy kick.  It is made with red pepper, garlic, and paprika.  Bill has used his KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade in many different ways.

First, he’s used it as a marinade on chicken.  That was a huge winner.  When I made chicken nuggets for the kids, Bill used his KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade to kick it up a notch on his.  He covered his chicken nuggets with it and said it was some of the best chicken nuggets he’s had.  You name it, I think he’s used the KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade on it!

KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade is a new fixture in my kitchen and should be in yours too!
