Silicone muffin cups. Get them for your Kitchen!

We don't know if you've heard about it, or if you have used it, but this is a great solution for a lot of things, not only for baking muffins.

If you don't know what you can do with it, we will give you some ideas.

1. For example, you can melt a butter with it. They are very flexible, so you can fill them with the butter. Just be careful, do not put too much of it, small portions are fine.

If you want to, you can also put chocolate instead of butter, and melt it in the microwave.

2. Maybe this will sound stupid or weird, but you can also use it for snack holder. There you can put whatever you're eating, of course not bigger amounts, and it is very practical.

3. How many times did you have to separate eggs when you are making a cake, cookie or maybe a pie? And then you had to separate egg yolks from the egg white.

You would have to take a cup and do it, well this is a better solution because both egg yolk and egg white can fit in it, and you can easily wash it afterwards.

4. If you like to play with the ice shapes, this is also nice stuff for you. You can put water in it and freeze it, and since these silicone muffin cups are pretty large, your ice will turn out to be bigger, which is pretty cute.

So as you can see, you can do with this " gadget " a lot more than you think.
