Save Time with Convenient Bake and Serve Cupcake Trays

October 10th, 2013 by Megan Ehrhardt

I love to make cupcakes, but I consider myself an average baker and decorator. I am also an active city girl. I lack the time and the space to bake and decorate elaborate treats. And let’s face it – those small city kitchens don’t exactly give you much room for anything. That’s why Wilton’s Disposable Paper Bake and Serve Cupcake Trays are a perfect fit for me. They have such fun patterns and are such a time saver! You just bake, decorate, and serve!

Filling the Baking Cups

Bake: I mixed my cake batter and simply filled each cavity of the tray 2/3 full (just like with any other standard Wilton baking cup). I placed the trays on top of a cookie sheet and put them in the oven.

Icing the Cupcakes

Decorate: Once the cupcakes were baked and cooled, I iced them with Wilton’s Ready-To-Use Decorator Icing using a Wilton decorating bag, then added some fun sprinkles.

Decorated Cupcakes

Serve: Now I have my cupcakes in a fun, festive tray that I can take to work, to parties or just enjoy at home with friends. It is as simple as that! Since the trays are fully disposable, I don’t need to worry about taking my tray home or even washing a tray! (Ugh…. Who likes washing dishes? Not this girl!)

One of my favorite features is how the serving tray is perforated so you can easily separate a cupcake for a single serving. Or you can remove the decorated sleeve to unveil a pretty ruffled baking cup! Each pack includes 4 trays of 6 cupcakes, enough to make 24 cupcakes.

Wilton Disposable Paper Bakeware Trays are so simple and fun to use that I will be using them the next time I bake! Everyone at my party absolutely loved my cupcakes. I guess that makes me an above average decorator now!

    Wow, this is very interesting. I think it’s a great idea for sharing with friends and offers a cute presentation without any fuss.

    Now these I like. This is a nice way to give a small amount of a baked goods item as a gift. My family owns and manages a retirement community and at least half of our units have a single person living in them or even if there is a couple there together, one has a sweet tooth, the other doesn’t. Many of our residents only get baked good treats, homemade ones anyway, when I do things for them either as a little gift or at our luncheons. We have one gentleman, 89 years old who LOVES sweets like this. His wife is in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s, he only has a son and apparently doesn’t bring many treats to him and he LOVES baked desserts. He comes to the luncheons and he’ll tell us, “when I come to the luncheons I eat the food and it’s nice, but I REALLY come for the desserts!” If he’s unable to attend for any reason one of the family or the lady next door to him makes sure he gets some of the desserts there that day. We take care of him! I’ve tried to make some more old-fashioned pies and cakes he hasn’t had since his mother was alive which has been quite a while. I hope they continue to make these little trays in all sorts of designs and at a REASONABLE price.

    Now I love this idea. You don’t have to worry about getting your dishes back from parties etc. I will use these and recommend to others. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a great recipe for lazy bakers for me. I am not a good baker as well just because i do not have the patience (maybe it runs in the family). Despite my terrible baking skills I am a sweet-tooth. I love anything from cakes to pastries. This recipe is great for a girl for me who wants something sweet while I do not have to crack my head thinking of how to bake. Thanks again for the recipe and tips on decorating 🙂
