I made chocolate almond cupcakes for Alex's birthday using the souffle cups for the very first time. After a nice seafood dinner I explained my intention that I needed some feedback and hence a slightly different looking cupcake than the ones they were used to. Who else better to test on than friends, right? Wrong! Even after explaining and demonstrating that one just needs to pull at the pleat and the top cuff will unfold, no one seemed to have got it right. *sigh*
Verdict: Stick to conventional fluted paper cupcake liners as most adults don't want to think too much after a long day at work. It's really not that difficult... honest!
