Muffin Tin Monday


I’m getting this post up late but better late than never! I was so excited to do this circus theme for Muffin Tin Monday. It isn't the healthiest lunch but she was very happy and ate it all up.


In the top row: cantaloupe with a cute circus pick, little cheese animals, animal crackers
In the bottom row: colorful chocolate-covered sesame seeds because the circus is colorful (go with me!), an elephant peanut butter sandwich (fruit leather eye) and circus peanuts

I chose to use the Wilton Easy Flex Silicone Cups for this muffin tin because they were perfect for the circus theme. They fit just right in the pan and, like a lot of Wilton products, they are very versatile. You can use them for muffins, cupcakes, tarts, soufflé and they are great for non-baking purposes such as in bento boxes or muffin tin Mondays! They add a fun splash of color and can be a great way to separate food items if you don't have a box with compartments. I often add them to Willow's lunches and I use them to keep small things in such as decorating tips or paper clips. They stack up neatly as great space-savers in my drawer. 

You can buy these silicone cups on the Wilton web site as well as in retail stores near you but, if you're lucky, you can win them and the circus pix plus so much more in my giveaway going on right now.

Speaking of late, I *still* haven't gotten my MTM post up yet! The cheese animals pair up perfectly with the animal crackers I think. I've never seen colorful sesame seeds like those, where did you find them?
