Cupcakes have become a food phenomenon. These delicious sugary treats featured in small screen hit show Sex and the City and with the thumbs up from New York trend-setter Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) their popularity has scaled new heights. And the secret to their success? More like an easy-to-follow recipe.
Golden, perfectly-formed cupcakes--ready in under eight minutes
Cupcakes are incredibly versatile, perfect for every occasion be it as formal as a wedding or as casual as an afternoon snack; for every season from the chilliest winter to the steamiest summer and for foodies of any age, young or old. They also make a thoughtful and unusual gift for that person who has everything.
There are so many ways to customise how you like a cupcake. Enduring favourite recipes include vanilla, chocolate and coffee, while more adventurous options include carrot cake, cola and key lime. And once the mixture is baked you can experiment with the toppings. Whip up some soft and creamy frosting or lather on some icing, but then what to put on top? Chocolate chunk, nut or slice of fruit? With cupcakes, the options are endless.

Delicious Cupcakes for Every Occasion
And now making cupcakes has become even easier thanks to the Breville Cupcake Creations VTP100 Cupcake Baker. Forget time spent waiting for your oven to pre-heat, all the fuss and bother of getting sticky baking trays in and out of the oven and then the wait as they bake. Step away from the oven as the Cupcake Baker helps you cook delicious cupcakes in less than eight minutes with just one piece of equipment that is easy to clean and easy to store.
The Cupcake Baker cooks eight individual cupcakes at a time each with a separate recess enabling you to make eight cupcakes from eight different mixtures all at once. It works quicker than an oven to produce spongy and lightly browned cupcakes.
And you can choose how simple or complicated you want your cupcake baking to be. Keep it simple by using store bought cake mixture or alternatively spend time making it from scratch and decorating the cupcakes elaborately. The Cupcake Baker is a fun and exciting way to bring baking into your kitchen providing children under adult supervision with an easy introduction to cooking.
Ready in Just 10 Minutes
The unit consists of two non-stick plates with eight recesses in the lower one specially designed to produce attractive, perfectly-formed cupcakes. Simply plug in the Cupcake Baker and both the red and green light will illuminate. Once the appropriate cooking temperature is reached the green light will automatically turn off.
This is your cue to add the paper cake cases to each recess and then spoon or pipe the cake mixture into them. A latch locks the lid into place so the temperature remains constant and the handles make it easy to open, close and transport. Once they have been cooked with the lid closed for approximately six to eight minutes, the cupcakes will be ready to be lifted out, served and enjoyed. If you want something smaller, downsize it to make bite-size fairy cakes by simply inserting smaller cake cases.
The cupcake recesses are non-stick
Easy to Use and Easy to Clean
Once the cupcakes have been eaten, the Cupcake Baker continues to keep your kitchen chores to a minimum. The non-stick plates are easy to wipe clean so there are no sticky baking trays to scrub and the lid is hinged for greater access helping with the post-cupcake clean-up. Storage isn't a concern as the unit closes flat so that it's compact, while also standing upright to keep it secure whether put away horizontally or vertically.
The Cupcake Baker comes with an attractive gift box and a comprehensive guide offering a number of sweet suggestions to get you baking. The booklet includes recipes for a variety of cake flavours, as well as icing recipes, techniques and handy hints on decorating your cupcakes to help them look as good as they taste. These suggestions provide a great starting place to get using the Cupcake Baker, ideal for starter chefs that are new to cupcake baking.
