We were at a party the other day and the hostess had put her condiments into muffin tins, with a spoon for serving. It was a great idea. She had sliced onions in one, tomatoes in another, pickles, ketchup, and mustard. It was really easy for serving.

If you are having a party and need a lot of ice, use muffin tins.The full size ones are great for ice too, because you get bigger ice and it will not melt as quick.

You could use them for seedlings or as an organizer for nuts/bolts, etc.

If they are just a little rusted, I would just use them with paper cupcake liners.

You could spray paint it if you want it to look nice and let the kids use them for mixing paint colors. You could also use it to carry several cups of coffee when attending office meetings.

I glued spanish moss in each cup. Then added minature eggs to 4 of them and put 4 plastic canvas chickens in the other ones. Hung it on my kitchen wall and have had lots of requests to make them. Really cute.

OK spray easy off... covering the pans completely.... spray lots... place inside a plasic bag. let sit for mmmm 45 minutes to an hour.... rinse and scrub with green scratch pad. repeat as needed until they are as clean as you like.... this also works on those pans that are "brown" from years of use. makes them look brand new! Be sure to NOT let the easy off dry on the pan. it is extremely hard to get off if it does. after cleaning spray lightly with pam and bake at 325 for 5 or so minutes then rewash as normal all will be right with your world

They're great as sorting trays for beads, etc. My son uses them for counting practice. They're also good for holding change at garage sales.

Recycle old muffin tins that have outlived their use for baking by using them to store small screws, nails, nuts and bolts in a utility drawer or on a garage or workroom shelf.
