For my British readers, fear not! This post is not a spin-off of the UK reality show TOWIE. (Nor am I surfacing my views on plastic surgery.) Seeing as it’s a new month I thought I should venture into something different and do a product review.
For the ardent bakers among you, you may already be aware of the life-changing invention of silicon baking moulds. Long gone are the days when you would have to knock the metal baking tin against the kitchen work surface to liberate your cake! And you can also wave goodbye to the days of scraping out half of your cake from the tin, because silicone moulds are the next best thing. Easy to clean. Easy to turn out the cakes. And if you’re brave enough, you won’t even need to grease the silicone beforehand.
I remember the first time I used a silicone mould in my parent’s gas oven and my Dad asked me if I was trying to burn the house down! Rest assured the silicone will not catch fire and nor will your cake, (well, the cake part isn’t guaranteed, that depends on your own baking skills!) Over the years I’ve upgraded all of my baking tins and I recommend you do so too.
