How to Choose Your Cake Tins

If you love baking, it can really help to have the right tools, and one of them is the hallowed cake tin. We go through what you should look for when choosing a cake tin.

How to Choose a Cake Tin

  • If you want a non-stick pan, go for a deeper tin. Shallower non-stick pans can make your cakes have a denser crust.
  • Choose a springform cake tin, as you can remove and ice a cake without it sticking to the sides.
  • If you don’t like springform tins, loose base tins are also great for removing a cake without causing it to crumble.
  • Deep nesting cake tins are ideal if you want to achieve a tiered cake look. Choose tins to suit your favourite bakes. If you love cooking brownies, go for a shallow tray bake tin. If you love baking loaves and breads, go for a deep non-stick loaf tin.

That’s it! You can now go cake tin shopping. Just remember to also look for shiny tins – not only are they great for checking the reflection, but they’re also best for cake baking because they reflect heat well and help to bake the cake evenly.
