The cupcake genius is a two-piece set. The bottom part is a regular muffin tin. The top part is a silicone insert that snaps on top of the tin, to create hollows in the cupcakes to add your filling. Sure, you could just make a cutout in the cupcake, or pipe in some filling... but this takes away an extra step - and it's fun!
The first step is to prepare your batter and fill the cupcake tins. It was our first time testing out the tin, and the recipe - so when the recipe said it made 12 cupcakes, we filled the tins to make exactly 12.
Other than that, the Cupcake Genius was absolutely genius! The cupcakes cooked evenly, and the insert was easy to remove and left a nice hollow for the marshmallow filling.
Spoon in some marshmallow filling, slap on some chocolate ganache, and voila! Look at this beauty.
And it tastes even better than it looks!
