Using the machine was easy - we filled the batter into the cupcake cups (sans paper baking cups) and closed the lid for the 5-6 minute baking time. I'm easily distracted with a 1 and 3 year old roaming, so I used our microwave to time the baking process. I shot for 5 minutes mark just to be sure I didn't over bake and tested with a toothpick.

I have a tendency to overfill, and while I followed the "only 2 tbsp" per cupcake holder, I still managed to be slightly too full but not terribly. You can see I got a bit heavy handed with the top cupcakes which are a bit browner and was more conservative on the first 3 at the bottom. :)

My overall impression of the Babycakes Cupcake Maker is that it is a great multi-functional machine. In addition to making cupcakes, you can definitely think outside the box with the Babycakes cupcake maker. Pies, scones, brownies, muffins... all with one machine. I would probably stick to the old way of making a big batch of cupcakes, but if you are looking for just a few for a small playdate, this is perfect. I also believe that this is a great machine to try to experiment with something you normally wouldn't make (scones, anyone?). For our next neighborhood gathering I'll try little strawberry cheesecakes for the adults and brownie bites for the kids!
