I love having kids that are a bit older (mine are 15 and 21 years old), but every now and then I see an item that makes me wish they were little again. At Ambiente, the world’s largest trade fair for consumer goods in Frankfurt, Germany, the Cupcake Corer & Decorating Set from Cuisipro got me wishing that the kids and I still baked treats together. They would both have loved this as kids!
Admittedly, this product could have a name that is more memorable – or at least clever. But the name does tell the tale.
A plastic piece allows you to hollow out a core in your cupcake before it is decorated. The hole is big enough so you aren’t limited to filling cupcakes with just frosting or pudding any more. Now you can add gummies, chocolate chips, M & M’s or whatever you like. The use the included decorator (it comes with two tips, but your standard cake-decorating ones can be substituted) to frost your creation.
I will write more about products and trends from Ambiente in the next issue of The Trend Curve. For now, you can see my picture of this fun new product below.
