Using silicone baking cups to make muffins and cupcakes is an eco-friendly alternative to their disposable paper counterparts. Non-stick silicone baking cups are dishwasher-safe and you won't have to worry about running out of paper cups right before a birthday party or other big event. Silicone baking cups are available in a wide range of whimsical shapes, such as hearts and flowers, so you can customise your baked goods to coordinate with the theme of a party or celebration.
