Super duper product”
Just had to review this product. I am a prolific cake maker and bought this while it was on offer and soooo glad I did. I did make a 3 egg mix but sorry I like my victoria sponges with the hilly bit on the top so used a 4 egg mix and 12 fabulous cakes popped out of the tin. I use cake release so I do think that helps but I also just used a tea towel on my fingers and pushed up the cakes and out they came. First time I left them a bit long to cool and I wasn't as happy with the shape. My granddaughter is off to school with a dozen for the coffee morning, they look super.

I was very excited about making mini cakes, however following the recipe and pressing a dent in the mixture before cooking, still causes the cakes to peak. The only way around it is to cut off the tops and use upside down, but doesn't look as good. It's a shame as it was a lovely idea, the tin is of very good quality though.

Just made mini Christmas cakes using the mini sandwich tin. Came out perfect. I notice some reviewers criticized the ambiguous term "non-stick" In my experience it is always better to grease tins.

Just what I was looking for!”
by Mrs Viner
I used this tin for the first time today and made mini Christmas cakes. I lined the tin with paper and all except 1 came out perfectly, the 1 that wasn't perfect was nothing to do with the tin (human error). I bought it when it was on offer for £9.99 amazing value, its a heavy tin worth every penny!

Solving the sticking problem”
These are my favorite tins Iinitially found the metal bases stuck to the bottom of the cakes, I have made small discs from a silicone mat which are reuseable and by also using baking spray it is no longer a problem. I always use a medium icecream scoop levelled off to fill the tins and they are perfect every time.

mini sandwich tin”
I purchased this tin and was very pleasantly surprised. the cakes came out perfectly not sticking whatsoever. I did grease them with stork margarine as a precaution I would certainly recommend this product

by HAYLEY Morgan
I have used this tin for the first time today and although I love it I have had a problem with the cakes rising in the middle too much, iv tried lowering the oven temprature slightly and tried to make a small well in the middle but cannot seem to resolve the issue also a few have stuck a little even after well greasing and a disc of greats proof paper

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry for the problems and will be in touch shortly. The rising may be caused by too much use of baking powder or may need the temperature lowering more.Using butter or something like Trex can also stop sticking. We hope that helps.
super little cakes”
Great idea to make easy pop out cakes, just a question - could they be used to make mini christmas (fruit) cakes just as well

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sure that the tin will be fine for small Christmas cakes. Just make sure you grease the tin beforehand.
Excellent cake tin”
by Mark Wrigley
I bought this cake tin at the same time as the mini loaf tin and have constantly good results. For my first batch I greased the tin as I would normally do and whilst the cakes came out I now use realise spray which gives a better result. Recently I have produced cakes for a McMillan coffee morning and the mini Victoria cakes disappeared very fast as people liked them as they looked professional and "cute". As a result of the coffee morning I was approached to provide cakes for a local Hospice Vintage Afternoon Tea. I have no problem in recommending these tins as they are very good quality.

These are absolutely brilliant. Wasn't expecting loose bottoms so even happier. So easy to clean and produced perfect results with my first batch using the recommended recipe.

Muffin cases to the rescue!!”
by Miss Campbell
After reading many of the different reviews for this tin & trying various methods of greasing the tins my cakes still stuck so I decided to try using muffin cases which worked a treat. The muffin cases were the perfect size and once baked I peeled them off & they look great ( also the washing up is so much easier!! )

mini victoria sponges baking tin”
I love this tin. It makes lovely uniform little sponges which are so easy to remove because of the loose bottoms in the tin. Easy to clean too as non stick.

First time results - good. Will do better next time”
After reading all the reviews I was a bit worried about the cakes sticking. I tried cake release on one half and buttered the other half. Both came out well although the bottoms did cling to the buttered ones but that was probably my error. I also only did a mixture with 2 eggs so note to self is use 3 eggs next time and fill higher.

Mini Sandwich Tin”
by Anne McCulloch
I bought a mini sandwich tin a few months ago and use it regularly Despite following the instructions of greasing the tins lightly I have trouble getting the cakes out cleanly. Has anyone got any advice on this or experiencing the same problem.

mini 12 cup sandwich tin”
by jan harding
I purchased this item along with one of your half price offers (selecting a baking tin). I used it to make mini sandwich cake for my Macmillan coffee morning, and decided to make a trio of desserts for my family using this tin. Absolutely fantastic results! I am an avid Lakeland customer, with most of my kitchen products purchased from your company. Many, many thanks. 1st. class results every time.

I bought this baking tin a while ago and have only used it once, as I was put off because the Victoria Sandwiches I made stuck badly and were very disappointing. Can anyone give me definitive information on how to get the cakes out of the tin without spoiling them. I have read a lot of reviews of this product and there does seem to many buyers who are having the same problem as me but others who don't appear to have an issue. I would dearly love to produce a perfect batch of mini cakes.

A note from the team: We're sorry to hear you've experienced this problem and appreciate it's not good when others have a special method of combating cakes sticking and keep it to themselves. Greasing the tin of course is one method but using Cake Release product ref 4198 is a much preferred and successful solution to this problem.Please give it a try!
Watch how you store it......”
This is an excellent product that gives great baking results. However, while stored above the Lakeland Mini-Morsel tin, it not only scratched that tin but lifted little bits off the surface in a couple of places. In other words, the base of this tin is quite rough around the 'holes'. That said, I love the cakes and bakes!

poor as a non-stick tin; great if greased first”
by Philip Friend
The box says they have a '2 layers quantum 2 non-stick coating', which I implied to mean they would be non-stick! My 1st batch of cakes was a disaster: they all stuck & looked poor. I consider myself a competent baker and have never had issues like this before! When it says 'non-stick' surely it should be non-stick? But when I did a second batch, buttering the tins, they worked like a dream. They are well-made tins, though, which I have come to expect from a company as excellent as Lakeland. They just need to ensure the info on the packaging is unambiguous.

Used for the first time this afternoon and absolutely love it already! I used the recipe on the Lakeland website and the cakes have come out absolutely brilliantly. I have had a bit of a volcano effect on top, however this could very well be my oven more than anything else. The cakes came straight out of the tin - I didn't even read it but will do from now on just in case, having read the other reviews. I can most definitely see this becoming a frequently used item in my kitchen. So glad I bought it!
