According to the brand, the Dash Express Cupcake Maker creates nine 1.25”x1.5” treats. It is designed for cupcakes and muffins, but it could be used for other food, too. Once a baker adds the item to the kitchen, it is ready to put those creative juices to the test.

One extra purchase might be beneficial when using this kitchen essential. A small scoop or even a squeeze bottle can make filling the smaller section easier. Excess batter can cause overflow, which creates a mess. Ensuring that the small area is filled properly will make the whole baking experience more enjoyable.

Lastly, remember to decorate those mini treats. It does not have to be complicated. For example, the Wilton Icing Pouch makes quick work of a little dollop of icing. And, there are plenty of sprinkles, glitter, and other decorations that can make these mini-masterpieces pop.
