I love silicon ! Not in the way some people associate silicon with - that is for personal body and facial enhancements. I am talking about a silicon baking pan which enhances the thrill of the baking process, ensuring the cake comes off easily and beautifully. Over the years, I have been using springform and aluminium pans for my baking and the clip on the former tends to get a little wonky after a few uses while the latter requires one to line the tin first. Just yesterday, I made a birthday cake for my mum using the silicon baking pan for the first time. Overturning the cake is one anxious moment because the joy of the whole baking process can be ruined with one bad turn. Silicon baking pans make it easier due to its flexibility. They may be a little more expensive but they are well worth it for the long run.
