Speciality and Novelty Cake Tins
There’s a whole lot to love about homemade cakes. Baking and cakemaking can be a rewarding hobby and a great opportunity to learn new skills and express your creativity. And that’s before you’ve even got to the eating part. Baking your own homemade cakes puts you in charge of the flavours and ingredients you combine. When it comes to home baking, you can create the taste and texture combinations you love the most to make homemade cakes that are far superior to the shop-bought fare.
The creativity doesn’t have to stop with the ingredients either. With our wonderful selection of speciality and novelty cake tins, you can get inventive with the shapes and designs of your cakes, whether you want to make miniature cakes, dinosaur cakes for your kids (or just you), or larger constructions like layer cakes.
We’ve got plenty of high-quality novelty cake tins for sale at Lakeland, from 6-inch cake tins and fluted cake rings to larger 8-inch cake tins and cupcake tins.
Our metallic Lakeland Blue cake tins are made to an exceptional standard of finish. Made from thick carbon steel, they’re built to last, and with two Quantum 2 professional non-stick layers, cooked cakes slide out of them smoothly. We’ve removed all rolled edges from our bakeware too, to eliminate the possibility of water traps forming and to make sure our baking tins are dishwasher safe.
The wonder of silicone cake moulds
Traditionally, cake tins are made from tough materials like carbon steel or aluminium. But silicone has changed that. Silicone is a soft, rubberised material that’s excellent for baking in.
Whilst silicone might look too flimsy to hold a good cake or survive the searing temperatures of your oven, trust us, it’s more than capable. Although flexible, silicone is durable and heat resistant – most silicone cake trays can withstand temperatures up to 230°C.
Silicone also offers some big advantages when it comes to cooking. The material transmits heat easily, allowing an even baking of the cake it holds. Once the cake is finished, it can be removed with ease from the mould – often you can simply peel the soft mould back and pop the cake out. Silicone cake moulds are also easy to clean and are microwave friendly too. Honestly, they take a lot of the hassle out of baking.
The material can be fashioned into a wide range of shapes, making for some truly outstanding cake tins. Our silicone cake moulds range from pop mould trays for mini cakes and dinosaur cake moulds to Easter egg style cakes.
If you’ve baked with silicone, you know how good it is. And if you’ve never tried a silicone cake mould, now’s your chance.
You can unleash your creativity with our excellent selection of novelty moulds and baking tins. With cake baking tins for madeleines and layer cakes to novelty dinosaur cake moulds and spaceships moulds, we’re confident we’ve got a cake tin that’s perfect for you.
