Craving something scrumptious? Welcome Home Brands offers solutions for much more than muffins, cupcakes and breads. Here’s a baker’s dozen of delectable ideas sure to delight: sweetened scones, jam tarts, chocolate lava cakes, Russian teacakes, shortbread, gingerbread cookies, macaroons, almond bark and mini coffee cakes. Bite-sized, portable and mess-free, these options illustrate the versatility of our bakeware. Here’s the scoop:
Scones. Crumbs, be gone. These small, single-serving quick breads, perfect with breakfast or afternoon tea, are a cinch when made in our cupcake cups.
Tarts. Tart molds are definitely optional since you can easily make jam tarts in baking cups. Play with different sizes and different jam flavors.
Lava cakes. These are simply upside-down cupcakes with an ooey-gooey center. Serve the still-warm cakes with cold ice cream—heavenly!
Russian teacakes. Buttery and savory, these little cookies are good all year, not just during the holidays. For perfect presentation and proportions, use cupcake cups instead of a cookie sheet.
Shortbread. Want more cookies? Shortbread cookies (or tarts) are nice and light. Top with nuts, chocolate chips or candy pieces.
Gingerbread cookies. Theses have a hint of spicy flavor and a wonderful aroma that will fill your whole kitchen.
Macaroons. Macaroons are nothing more than small, circular cakes, so of course cupcake cups are perfect for baking these almond or coconut-based treats.
Almond bark candies. Speaking of almond, this homemade candy is sure to please a crowd. Drop it by the spoonful into cupcake cups.
Mini coffee cakes. Sweet and always satisfying, coffee cake is a can’t-miss, whether you add a swirl of cinnamon or dollop of sour cream—or both.
