When you think of baking what company is the first company to come to mind? Wilton of course! Now I don’t pretend to be a baker with any skill, though I do prefer baking to cooking so I was excited that Wilton wanted to sponsor Countdown to Black Friday. One of the reason I enjoy it is because my daughter does and it gives us a little mom and daughter time in the kitchen.
Wilton sent us 5 great holiday pans to try out.
We decided to give almost all of them a try, the only one we haven’t used yet is the brownie mold (the green Christmas trees). This past weekend Honey and I got a chance to really test out our new Kitchen Aid Mixer (be sure to enter that giveaway). Honey gets the ingredients and gets to pour them into the bowl. We used the sugar cookie recipe that was found on the back of the pans above as well as the Whoopie Pie recipe.
We loved the pans and had a great time, pictured here are the: Christmas Whoopie Pie Pan (tree, stocking, gingerbread boy), Paint by Numbers Cookie Pan, Christmas Pop Cookie Pan, Word Banner Cookie Pan and, Mini Tree Silicone 12 Cavity Mold. We baked the cookies just about 2-3 minutes longer that I like but my husband has really enjoyed the cookies, in fact he took them into work and all we have left is a few whoopie pies.
We started out with the Pops because they looked like the most fun. As I said we followed the sugar cookie recipe and we even used the icing recipe that requires Color Flow which hardens the icing. Warning: I am not a professional in any way shape or form when it comes to decorating cookies. That said we thought these turned out cute.
Our other favorite was the Whoopie Pies, not to mention these were SOOO good. I thought the center that requires marshmallow creme was not going to be something I liked but it was Awesome!
The pans were super easy to use and the cookies didn’t stick at all, they pop right out when flipped over. They come with very helpful instructions if you wanted to make the exact design on the cover. Here is what the paint my number cookies would look like if I was a professional. However our Christmas tree didn’t turn out too bad (see below)
