It is not even Valentine's Day yet and already this mini cupcake pan is on sale for $6. I like the after Valentine's Day sales better than the after Christmas ones. Lots of cooking related items are marked down just because they are in red or pink. I find that Christmas cooking/baking products hard to pass off for every day use: too much red/green together, snowmen, lots of stripes. Valentine's Day items (in the cooking realm at least) tend to be solid colored and more neutral.
Target in particular is a goldmine for discounted Wilton products this time of year. Muffin tins, cupcake stands, bowls, decorator tips, sugars, cookie cutters, cupcake carriers are always reduced the 15th despite being the exact same items that they stock all year because they are in special Valentine's Day packaging and they always seem to have a lot left after the holiday.
