Gil and I were invited over to dinner last night by some good friends that we had not seen in quite a while and I wanted to take them something special. I decided to bake them my favorite muffins, Morning Glorious Muffins, but I wanted to give them in something that was a little out of the ordinary. So, I found a silicone muffin baker that I thought would be fun to use as my container.
It came with a "sled" that keeps it stable for baking and transporting:
I found a really pretty autumn dish towel at Tuesday Morning. It had nice embroidery on it. I found coordinating ribbon at Smith's in Mountain Brook:
I actually baked the muffins in my own muffin tin and used paper liners:
Then I doubled the liners and placed the muffins in the silicone baker:
I covered them with plastic wrap and folded the dish towel over them like this:
Than I tied the ribbon around it. I tied on some tiny wired pine cones for an added fall touch:
The dish towel can be used in other ways, also. It could be wrapped around a loaf of homemade bread, or used as a liner for a basket filled with muffins or cookies. It is also great to include the recipe, which I actually forgot to do.
This is yet another way to enjoy autumn and all its cozy comforts.
