I’ve been wanting to try one of the mini cupcake makers for a while now, so I was super excited to have the opportunity to check out the Sunbeam Mini Cupcake Maker. I had a baking day last Wednesday, so I decided to take it for a test bake.
So I mixed up some of my favorite vanilla cupcake batter, and started baking. I preheated the mini cupcake maker, then added mini cupcake liners and filled them about 3/4 full of cupcake batter. The directions say to bake them for about 5-6 minutes, I baked mine 6 minutes + a little and they turned out perfect.
One note of caution, when you open the cupcake maker after it’s been baking the cupcakes there is a build up of steam. I let go pretty quick the first time! After that I used an oven mitt on the hand I used to open the cupcake maker. Just make sure your kids are standing back a little bit, and don’t have their faces down there when the steam rolls out.
I made some mini cupcakes with sprinkles on them.
I also made a couple other cupcake variations I’ll be sharing over the next couple days, including these:
I’ve had a blast playing with the Sunbeam Mini Cupcake Maker, but I do want to note it’s not a toy (I don’t want to give you the wrong impression since I’m writing about it here at Kid’s Fun). It gets hot, and an adult needs to be in charge to make sure everything goes smoothly.
The kids can decorate though, make up a batch of mini cupcakes and turn the kids loose with the sprinkles and I’m sure they’ll have a blast!
Overall I really like the Sunbeam Mini Cupcake Maker, and I plan to use it to make some more fun creations in the near future. I’m glad I finally had the opportunity to give it a try.
