|Silicone muffin cups, 2 of each of 6 colors|
Silicone muffin cups are obviously more expensive than paper liners, but they're reusable, so if you bake enough cupcakes and muffins, they pay for themselves. Of course, if you win some, they don't need to pay for themselves, right?
Another objection I had to silicone liners was that I imagined that people would throw them away, just like they toss the paper ones. But I think that these days, people know they're reusable, so they're not as likely to throw them away.
But now that I've gotten used to having silicon muffin cups around, I'm hooked. For one thing, I can bake in them without using a muffin pan. I still do use a pan when I'm making a dozen cupcakes. But when I'm baking one or two, it's nice to just use the silicone cups.

So, when the folks at Kitchen Buddies asked if I wanted to give some away, I said heck, yeah. They sent me samples, and I compared them to other silicone cups I already have. They're a nice thickness - a tad thicker and some that I got free with a muffin pan, but still thin enough so you can easily turn them inside out to remove the muffins or to clean them. They're also slightly larger than some others I have, giving you a little more room for the cupcakes or muffins.
