Well worth the money. I've used it several times now and it's worked perfectly every time. My only problem is finding a cake tin deep enough to transport it in one piece, I have to assemble it in-situ ~Lakeland please help!~

Love it! But.......”
I love this cake tin-I love that it never sticks- I love that everyone is always thrilled to receive a giant cupcake cake-I love that it`s easy to ice and for me a 7 egg mixture works every time. However it drives me crazy that one half cooks more quickly than the other-Was it tested? I can only imagine a man made it (lol!).Fix this Lakeland and it would be perfect :-) This aspect has seriously affected the rating I have given.

A note from the team: Check regularly whilst baking as cooking times in different ovens vary. If you find the cone section is cooked before the base section it can carefully be removed leaving the base to cook longer. We hope this helps.
I purchased this tin a couple of years ago and have had spectacular results every time. A 6-egg mixture is perfect and no sticking if cake release is used. Fantastic, heavy-duty product, many more cakes to come. Definately worth the money.

Giant cupcake pan”
Was pleased with the quality of the tin when it arrived - it's solid. I buttered and floured the tin and the cake has popped out perfectly both time I've used it, using a 6 egg madeira cake and a 6 egg chocolate cake recipe - both filled the tin perfectly, baked for about an hour with both recipes. One slight issue I found however was that the pointy top of the cupcake slipped in between the spars on my oven shelf, so the first cake I made was slightly lopsided. Put it on a cookie sheet next time and it was fine. The 2 pieces aren't an exact fit, icing fixed that though.

I bought the large cupcake mould to make my daughter a birthday cake as she is mad about cupcakes. I was dubious about the size of the cake, the relative cooking times for the top half and the bottom half and also whether the cake would turn out of the tin ok. In the event the tin was brilliant I adapted a chocolate cake recipe she likes, it cooked brilliantly and turned straight out of the tin with no sticking. The result was a very classy looking huge cupcake and a very happy daughter. This is the best baking tin I have purchased.

What a great cake tin!”
by Carrie Moffitt
Can I just say how much I love not only my new tin but also my new cake release! I have just tried out the giant cupcake with a 6 egg victoria sponge recipe, which was a perfect fit. The cake release made sure it slid straight out of the tin, in the perfect shape of the tin, with not a crumb left behind. Very impressed with both.

Perfect ! ”
I used the giant cupcake tin today and am so pleased with how my cake has come out! I had no problem with the cake sticking as I used the Cake Release as recommended by other reviewers,, I hesitated in buying this cake tin but am so glad I have and now look forward to making many more giant cupcakes...Well done Lakeland, another excellent product !

Great product - but its a shame!”
by David Bell
My wife was given one of these giant cup-cake tins for Christmas. She loves using it, as it makes lovely cakes, which she then gets great satisfaction decorating. So no complaints with the tin at all. But here's the rub. The resulting cake is big, by big, I mean tall. And Lakeland don't do a storage box big enough. In fact, no-one does, we have trolled the internet, asked in all manner of shops, and even written to Lakeland, but nothing. So, Lakeland, what you going to do about it? David

A note from the team: Thanks for your feedback. The cake, prior to icing and without filling, should be 18cm diameter and 17cm tall. We've checked and our 9lt Store and Save (reference 13881) and the 9lt Lock and Lock (reference 5441) should both be suitable for storing the finished cake in with room for a little icing. We will pass a suggestion to our buyers for a storage solution to allow more elaborate icings and fillings. Thanks for your time.
I bought this following unsuccessful attempts with a silicone mould & wish now that I'd bought this first. The cake is quite large & the recipe I use is an 8 egg one, (double my usual for a 7" round sandwich). It looks really impressive when decorated with frosting & sugarpaste flowers. The finished cake is nice to give as a gift. However one word of warning, after the top section sticking (very frustrating at having to discard it), I tried using cake release & this is much better than the spray-on oil you can get for preventing cakes sticking to the tin. Excellent product & lovely quality.

The cupcake tin is amazing, and its so much fun to decorate. Would recommend cake release as it does stop you struggling with getting the sponge out. Made two already and been asked to make many more for birthday parties etc. Definitely worth the money.

I really didn't like the recipe for this cake pan but it is a very well made product. Now I have adjusted it to a five egg mixture it is very moist and requires less cooking time. Only one major problem exists for me is that there are absolutely no products to carry it. I have made this cake four times now and each time have spent more stressing time working out how to transport it. Please could you sell cake carriers that support your products!!!

excellent but a few problems”
by doris balmer
I bought this just because I couldn't resist it and although it was a bit of an extravegance for just my husband and I, it's a quality tin that will last a lifetime. I have two niggles: 1. The recipe on the packaging is nowhere near enough to fill both sides. You need a cake mix that uses 9 eggs! 2. The top part of the cake is cooked quicker than the bottom part and to avoid getting the top overbaked, you'll need to try and tip the top part out onto a cooling rack and return the half baked bottom section to the oven. I've made this giant cupcake twice and have found that both these niggles were applicable each time. A fantastic, quality product none the less.

Used this for the first time with Cake Release with much anticipation but once baked it just fell out the tin! Not a crumb was left! I did use a different recipe to the one that comes with the tin and it worked fine though once baked the top was full but the base not. I will probably try the recipe it comes with next time after seeing the one review about how it filled the mould and made more cupcakes! I put jam and buttercream inbetween the layers and then piped pink buttercream around the top. I'm going to have to find an even bigger nozzle though! I then then dyed icing pink and cut out hearts which I painted with vodka to remove any traces of icing sugar and sprinkled edible glitter on them. I then used these hearts to cover up any joins in the buttercream piping!

Having looked at this for absolutely ages a friend and i decided to share one.I had first go last night and it is fantastic.The recipe is a bit odd but once you get around that it works well.I used cake release and the cake just dropped out.I decorated the base with a thin layer of chocolate butter cream and then white and chocolate fingers stood up all the way round,then the top with more butter cream and white and chocolate buttons.Looks brilliant and the recipient is thrilled.I wish more people would say how they decorated this cake to give ideas as this came from an earlier review and helped a lot. Well worth it if you are a cake baker.

Giant Cupcake Pan”
by Victoria George
I bought this giant cupcake pan as I couldn't get on with the sillicone one. After using the cake release the cupcake came out with ease & looked excellent. Very pleased with this product :)

Bought this tin a few months ago and the result was great though I did use less ingredients than suggested and was till a large cupcake. Only problem I have is that I cannot find a holder big enough to keep the cake fresh as it is a tall cake.
