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!

Does exactly what it says on the tin! Tried out the tin for the first time and got perfect results first time. Right quantities important and as per previous post, using the posted recipes as a guideline was useful as I got it just right. Slipped right out of the tin. I sliced and added jam, slice of strawberry and fresh cream and sieved some icing sugar on the top. Look amazing and completely professional. I'm going to get tonnes of use out of this tin!

I love this tin! I just brushed the insides with a little melted butter, and added the mix for a Rhubarb Streusel cake. The cakes cooked well and evenly, and looked great, just what we wanted for a summer party. I also appreciated the couple of extra loose bases, just in case any get lost.

I had been wanting to buy this pan for quite a while and when it was in the sale I decided this was the time to buy! I used it for the first time today with a standard fairy cake recipe (greased the pan) and the results were great! There was no sticking to the pan and the cakes came out perfectly. Can't wait to experiment more!

I make Vic sponge, cheese cake + mini pies”
by JooFang Cindy Jaques
I have made Victoria sponges, cooked cheese cake and mini chick curry pies. I also use it for pre-bake pre-made pies. I make the mini pies for my 6 mini pie maker. I insert into this tray to hold its shape, put the pre-bake pies back into the bridge for tomorrow.

Brilliant Purchase - Buy This Now!”
I am extremely pleased with this tin. Cakes baked beautifully, came out of the tin with no problems at all and it was very easy to wash up. It was amazing value with it being on offer too, I'd definitely recommend this tin to any avid baker. You won't be disappointed.

Loved this idea but each time only one of the batch would come out like the picture and the rest of the cakes would stick and be impossible to get out. I resorted to using greaseproof paper which is such a pain and defeats the object of this seemingly lovely tin :-(

Fantastic tin and well worth the money no hassle guarantee.”
by Mrs conlon
I greased and floured the tin without the discs in there and then quickly with no effort did the discs and just popped them in. I made 2 batches which came out perfectly, with no mess and no hassle. I would highly recommend this product. I used my own recipe for sponge mixture. If I could add a picture I would show you how good they came out and not one left in work the following day. If you are having trouble with sponge mixture weigh 3 eggs in their shells, whatever they weigh use the same in caster sugar flour and butter & drop of vanilla extract. Perfect cakes no matter what tin you us

Persevered with this tin and am just about coming it grips with it. Love the idea if individual cakes and have made cheesecakes and Victoria sandwich cakes in it. I use cake release to grease the tin and find this makes cake removal easier. I cut 4" off the top of a narrow bottle, leaving the lid on, place this under each cake individually and push the tray down gently, this raises the cake so you can lift it onto the cooling wire.

I was a little apprehensive about whether it would be worth buying this pan, however I’m glad I did. Great piece of bake ware, sturdy construction and easy to clean. Comes with two spare inserts in case you lose any, which is useful. Used the lemon drizzle cake recipe and chocolate cake recipe from the website, both were excellent. Also used the pan to make individual cheese cake, fiddle but fun and they looked fab. Would recommend using a cake release spray.

This review is for an older version of this product
I would not purchase any other bakeware range as Lakeland's are competitively priced and produce perfect results every time. Fantastic quality, great value.

Great little cakes”
Good tin, solid and heavy. I have found that Lakeland muffin cases fit this tin well but liners would be better like with the mini loaf tin.

Always great results from these”
I've had this product for a couple of years and I always get a great batch of cakes which everyone loves. A bit of cake release enables then to come out of the pan easily. Have used the recipes on the Lakeland website and others and have always been pleased with the results. My tip is to leave the cakes in the pan to cool for 10 mins before releasing them from the pan.

I love the way this pan is designed, the loose bottoms are stored in a plastic case in one of the holes and you also have a few spares. You do need to grease this pan well or your cakes will stick to the pan. I have found no difference between cake release and butter though in loosening the cakes. I've also found leaving them in the pan for 10 minutes or so helps them to release. The pan is easy to wash in the dishwasher and it's very heavy duty. I would highly recommend this pan, the cakes or cheesecakes I have made look so pretty, but you do need to use quite a robust cake mix.

does what it says in the tin”
I greased tin with butter and put the batter in. I levelled batter with a teaspoon and then made a slight well in the centre like you would on a big sponge. They still rose very well but left a nice little mound like you should have on a sponge ( but at least you are sure to have a flat base). Mine took 22 minutes to cook without being over cooked ( oven was at right temp as I always use a lakeland oven thermometer to double check) I let them cool in the cake tin and they popped out a treat. They looked lovely filled but the buttercream quantity was far too much. Great tin.

This tin is amazing! It arrived yesterday and today I have made the mini Victoria sponges and the coffee and walnut cakes. Both turned out brilliantly and I even forgot to grease the tin but they still fell out easily! I left them to cool for 5 mins in the tin until I could touch it, put a cooling rack over the top and turned the whole thing over. 2 needed a tap but the rest fell out! I'm well impressed!
