Cooling Racks, Baking Tins & Bakeware

Whether you’re a professional or a novice, you’ll know that the first thing to do with cakes, cookies and muffins when they come out of the oven is to pop them on a cooling rack.

The best way to ensure your baked goodies cool down evenly and slowly, a cooling tray or rack is an essential part of your bakeware collection, alongside your baking tins and traditional baking equipment. Available in so many different sizes and designs, you’ll find the right cake cooling rack online right here at Lakeland.

Why use a baking cooling rack?

Cooling racks are actually more important than you might think. Yes, they’re a great spot to place your cakes after they come out of the oven to cool but it’s even better than that.

A baking rack is slightly raised off the surface you’ve rested it on. And due to the wire design, it allows air to flow freely around the oven-fresh baked goods. Avoiding sitting them directly on a hard surface stops condensation and moisture from mounting up and creating a soggy cake. A cooking rack for baking helps to keep your sponge light, fluffy and delicious. They can also be used as a safe place to rest your baking sheets and trays as they come straight out of the hot oven. You can shop online for a wide variety of options at Lakeland.

Types of baking cooling racks

There are plenty of options when it comes to baking racks and the latest Lakeland collection has so many on offer. You’ll find traditional slightly raised racks alongside higher racks, which are great if you plan to spend some time decorating your cake while it’s still standing on the rack.

If you tend to bake lots of goodies at once, try one of our tiered racks with plenty of space for extra cupcakes. We even have a folding rack that’s great for more compact kitchen storage.
