I've always been partial to a bit of Royal Albert loveliness - something about the sweet patterns and history of the brand that make them awfully enticing, I think! Now, I also love cupcakes, so I was absolutely delighted when I saw that Royal Albert are now producing bakeware.
Made from porcelain, it's rather different to your stock standard muffin tin variety, although they say that porcelain is superior for baking, as it retains heat to cook items more evenly. It's also pretty, which is obviously the most important thing! I can see me using this at dinner parties and being able to take my baked delights from the oven to the table. Love it!
If you're partial to Old Country Roses, Peter's of Kensington have these at a significant discount. Pretty, vintage-inspired AND a bargain. Don't ever say I don't give you anything!
P.S. I know I've been absent for a while now (work, work, work!) and I hope you'll forgive me! x
