Debbie Meyer Cupcake Genius is Genius!

Over the weekend, I was able to test out my Debbie Meyer Cupcake Genius, which was one of my housewarming gifts when I first moved into my new place.  Almost a year, and I hadn't tried this nifty little tool, and now that I have, I want to use it again and again!

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.

What we didn't really take into account was that the cupcakes grow.  A lot.  And the silicone takes up space that would normally be taken up by some batter.  So next time I make cupcakes, I think I would probably make 14 or 16 cupcakes from a 12-yield recipe.

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!
