Window Shopping Wednesday - Giant Cupcake Tins

I've seen a lot of people making giant cupcakes recently, so I started having a look at Giant Cupcake Tins. I'd love to have a go at making a giant cupcake, they look so pretty once they are all decorated!

Giant cupcakes are popular for kids parties, and there are a few different tins on the market.

This week, I've been looking at the following tins:

This silicon giant cupcake tin is from Tesco. It is currently priced at £6.75. As it is made from silicon, it is non-stick and heat resistant. However, from my experiences with silicon tins, I would still recommend greasing it just to be sure!

This giant cupcake tin is also from Tesco. It is made from aluminium, and is currently priced at £9.95. I think I'd be more likely to go for a metal tin such as this one, as silicon tins can be difficult to move once filled.

This Wilton giant cupcake tin is from Cake Stuff. It is quite a bit more expensive that the other tins at £29.95, but Wilton are a great baking brand. This tin is a professional tin and is made from heavy grade aluminium.

Both tins from Tesco seem fairly reasonable, but if Giant Cupcakes are something you are likely to make regularly, then it may be worth investing in the Wilton one.

Which one would you choose?

Have you used any of the products I've shown here? If so, what do you think of them?

I'll be sure to review whichever ones I do buy, so I will keep you all posted!

  1. I have the Wilton one. It is a bit of a pain in the bum to get the cakes out after they are cooked! I have devised a fiddly way of using lining paper, which requires a lot of sqishing so as not to loose the forms design! I would prefer two seperate pieces, probably in silicone to facilitate cake removal! Also the top and bottom do not cook at the same time so you have an over cooked top and an under cooked bottom!
    Its a tricky business!

    1. Thanks for the tips Maggie!

      I'll bear these in mind when I manage to get one :) I think it'll still be a learning curve though!
