WANT: Muffin Top Baking Cups

Normally we wouldn’t write a whole article featuring a kitchen tool, but this is different. It’s also got us thinking about creating a whole new section on FTK. Why? Because these are some of the most hilarious things we’ve seen in ages and we totally want them for our Easter Brunch: Muffin Top Baking Cups.

We found a set for $12 at Urban Outfitters.

We also found a limited number for $12 with possible free shipping at Amazon.

Here’s the thing — if you’re going to indulge and fight off feelings of guilt along the way, you might as well have fun with it! And these look super fun.


  • Manufacturer: Fred
  • Includes: 4 cups
  • Material: Silicone
  • Care: Hand wash
  • Dimensions: 2½” x 2″

The cups are obviously cute if you serve the actual cupcake in this holder, but if you’re creatively inclined you can always remove the pastry from the silicone cup and decorate the pant yourself. This gives you some great opportunity to make them seasonal — say Santa Clause pants if it’s Christmas time, greens, pinks and purple shorts for an Easter flair. And, since cupcakes are a hit at any event, the options are really endless.

We have not used them ourselves, but the reviews on Amazon are all mostly positive, describing them as fun and funny and the hit of a party. Clearly, if you’re going for a cool and useful joke gift, then these could be amazing. However, a few people also noted that they are smaller than they imagined they would be, even though the dimensions are listed. That’s probably because the photos make them look big. Either way, you’ve been warned.


Do you enjoy reading about quirky products for your pad? If so, let us know! We’re thinking of starting a new section based on fun stuff for your home.
