Pampered Chef: Silicone Floral Cupcake Pan Butter

    I know this isn't original, but some of you may not have heard of this tip. It's great to share at shows, especially at this time of the year. (I usually hear at least one or two "that's a good idea!") when I share it.

    Place softened (NOT melted) butter in the cups of the silicone floral cupcake pan. Two sticks will fill about 3 floral cups. Freeze until firm. A few hours before serving, pop them out on a small dish--they will pop right out without sticking, and will defrost by the time your meal is ready. I used real butter, not fake butter. I don't know if it will work the same if you don't use the real thing.

    I had 2 of them on my Thanksgiving table yesterday. Everyone was impressed, and one guest even scraped the butter from the underneath so as not to disturb the design.

    Looks great on a brunch table, too!

    I do this for my brunches. I always have 2 butter cups in the freezer that I travel with me at shows to show my guests. I also suggest that they use it with ice cream. Instead of serving a scoop of ice cream, why not a flower of ice cream? :)

    You can also do little pats by only putting a couple tablespoons in each cup.
