My son's favorite cup was the star shape and he asked me to put three of the star-shaped brownies in his lunch tomorrow.
I have actually never worked with molds before so it took a little getting used to, a little trial and error so to speak to bake the brownie for the perfect amount of time to make them release easily from their cups. On my first batch, I didn't bake the brownies long enough and had to return them to the oven. I got better on the second batch and had it down to a science by the third batch. They baked for around 25 minutes.
To make the mold more secure when baking, I placed it inside of a small baking pan in the oven. I also generously sprayed the mold with cooking spray before baking. I think this mold can be used in numerous ways: cakes, brownies, candy, and gelatin. Wouldn't these be beautiful as ice cubes filled with fruit or mint and floating in a punch bowl? Yes!
Thank you to WholePort for providing me with the molds for testing.
