Wilko Muffin Cases and Giveaway #14

I was recently sent some baking bits and bobs to review from Wilkinson (Wilko), the UK family value town store. Most of it was aimed at children, including a pack dough cutters which I would have loved when I was a child, but are no longer quite my thing. However, I pounced on the colourful pack of 12 silicone Wilko muffin cases. As some of you may have gathered by now, I am a big fan of silicone cookware and use it a lot in my baking. As I've stated before, it has revolutionised my baking life, with no more arduous lining of tins, or cakes sticking and refusing to come out. These cases were a welcome addition to my collection. For a start I loved the vibrant colours of purple, deep pink, turquoise and lime green. With my eco hat on, it means less wastage and no need to use and then throw away lots of paper cases. But most usefully, they are smaller than the paper muffin cases I usually choose, which means I can make daintier morsels for my less piggy friends.

The cases were soon christened by some honey cakes - the recipe and exact details to be revealed in a later post. I made half of my usual quantity which fits 12 regular sized muffin moulds. This makes for hefty sized cakes, which is fine if you're very hungry, but not so good if you just want a tea time snack. This half batch size still managed to nearly fill these 12 cases and produced the perfect size honey cake.

Wilkinson sell a range of bakeware and it's worth checking out your local store to see what you can find. Wilkinson are offering my readers the chance to win £20 worth of vouchers to spend in store on the items of your choice.

  4. I have some silicone muffin cases but I have to say that I have had very limited success with them. I have even thrown them away in my last kitchen clean out, such a waste I know! Glad these ones were a success for you though, they are certainly very colourful.

    1. It's a strange thing silicone. There seem to be two camps: those that love it and those that hate it. I'm in the former as it has revolutionised faffing around lining tins. I think, with the muffin cases, it just depends what you are making with them.

    I hadn't considered buying silicone bakeware before so I found this interesting to hear that it can make life simpler. I've had some disasters in the past when the cake refuses to leave the tin.
