About Our BAKING KIT
Nothing says comfort like a couple of steaming cupcakes and a new appreciation for what’s possible when it comes to camp cooking. Packit Gourmet’s baking set includes six silicone baking cups and a steamer that turned gooey chocolate batter-and chilly sleep system testing nights-into our new favorite wilderness treats.

The steaming base is 6" in diameter, so I would recommend a pot that is between 6-8". The cups are 2.5" in diameter and 1.25" tall. You will need a lid to hold in the steam, but aluminum foil works great as well if space and weight are a concern.
This set up worked really well! I made my friend the Chocolate Molten Cakes for her birthday in camp and they were a hit. One word of advice...if you are in a very mousey area (eg. the Grand Canyon), then make sure to stow the silicone muffin cups in a rat sack even if they haven't been used yet. Apparently mice enjoy the texture of the silicone =)
I tried it at home with a commercial muffin mix. I was impressed. I was expecting something sorta mushy like a dumpling. Instead, the muffin was baked nicely and was done very quickly.
