I love using this to fancy up a dessert for any holiday meal or special occasion get-together in my home. I have used it for bridal showers, holiday dinners, and birthday parties. It is so easy to use and you can fill it with any cake batter. However, because it is silicone you must put something underneath it in the oven (like a cookie sheet) and some may find it annoying to wash. In any case, it makes a beautiful presentation and the compliments are worth it!
