Review Of Wilton Valentine Cupcake Kit & Giveaway!

Wilton Valentine's Giveaway

Do you like cake? Cupcakes? Candy? If so this is the review for you! Be sure to stay tuned until the very end for a very exciting giveaway!

Recently, Wilton contacted me about doing a review and giveaway of their products on my blog. I love to bake and I’ve always enjoyed Wilton products so it was a total no brainer! Of course! We worked out the logistics and they sent me the package for review.

I received the box and at first was rather surprised by how large it was. We had not really gotten into what exactly they would be sending, I just knew it would be Valentine’s Day themed. When I opened up the box I was shocked! Here’s the breakdown of what they sent me:

My daughter’s birthday was this past Monday so I decided to put this box of goodies from Wilton to good use! I baked 24 cupcakes at one time. I baked 12 in the Wilton muffin pan and one in another brands muffin pan. The difference was really obvious. The cupcakes in the Wilton pan glided right out. They were a beautiful color on top and very moist. The other pan didn’t fair as well. Those cupcakes were a bit harder to get out and a few tops tore off unfortunately. Score one for the Wilton muffin pan!

Next I frosted the cupcakes (I opted not to use the rose liners at this time. I’ll use those closer to Valentine’s Day!) and sprinkled some of the Sweetheart Sprinkles on top. They looked so festive and fun! I loved having several different choices of sprinkles to choose from, and this container will last us a really long time.

I purchased some candy bark at the grocery store and melted them in the microwave to make the candypick hearts. I spooned the chocolate into the mold and put them in the refridgerator. In no time at all, I had perfect candy chocolate hearts to stick in the cupcakes!

Now it was time to put the stand together. Let me tell you, I’ve always wanted one of these fancy cupcake stands. I thought originally that it was going to be tough to put together, but I actually put it together in less then a minute. Super easy. The cupcakes went on easily and felt totally secure. I even picked up the stand with all the cupcakes on it and moved it several times.

I did not use the Decorative Red Icing Roses, but did take them out to look. They are beautiful and I can’t wait to put them on our Valentine’s Day cupcakes in a few weeks!

I almost wish I had something negative to say about anything I received in this kit (sometimes totally glowing reviews can seem cheesy to me!), but honestly I don’t. Everything worked as it should and helped make my daughter’s otherwise ordinary cupcakes anything but! I’m excited to use this kit of supplies over and over again and even went out and purchased a Wilton piping bag on my own so I could ice cupcakes in style from now on!
