It can be difficult to know which type of mold is best for your recipe. To help you make your choice, below is information on the most common types of cake pans and their uses. Typically square, rectangular, or circular in shape, traditional cake pans are the standard choice for baking many kinds of cakes like the famous chocolate cake . They have tall, straight sides and a flat bottom to create cakes that you can wiggle or cut to even them out and then spread them out.
As they also come in different sizes, these food grade silicone molds are commonly used to prepare tiered wedding cakes .

Like traditional cake pans, silicone cake rings have high sides that are perfect for preparing layered baked goods . Traditional cake rings, however, are bottomless.
So the bakers can simply slide the ring up and remove it once the cake is completely cooled. To bake a cake ring, place it on a baking sheet , then fill the ring with cake or bread batter. Pouring the batter slowly will prevent leaks at the junction between the ring and the bottom of the pan. Cake rings can also be used as cookie cutters to cut shapes out of cake sheets. Made of fine stainless steel, they can cut through cooled cake to create a clean edge for intricate pastries and sweets.
Rectangular silicone cake molds
These molds are shallow with raised edges. About 1cm deep, these molds can be used for making tiered cakes or as a base under cake circles. Sometimes called " genoise moulds ", they are also excellent for baking thin cakes used in wrap recipes, such as Swiss rolls and Yule logs.
Parchment paper and pan liners can prevent cake layers from sticking to the bottom of the pan and help you handle your cake during the rolling process. Some silicone molds are pierced in their center for making ring-shaped cakes . These cakes are cooked upside down in the pan and flipped over to remove when cooled.
Thus, these types of silicone molds generally have a domed bottom for round cakes , or an angled bottom for cakes with intricate patterns. The hole in the center of the pan also allows deep cakes to bake faster and more evenly than standard round cakes of the same size.
Like newer cake pans, silicone pans usually have many corners that your cake can stick to. cooking sprays are ideal for covering every corner of these unique molds , so your cake doesn't run out of pieces.
Silicone molds for Angel Cake or Chiffon Cake, also called tube molds , are ring-shaped and have high sides that can be straight or tapered. These silicone molds are usually made of two separate pieces that fit together when baking and come apart for easy removal of your cooled cake . The central tube and the bottom form one part and the sides of the mold are another.
As with silicone molds, this central tube allows for faster cooking because the heat can surround the inner part of the cake. Additionally, many tube cake pans are not coated with a non-stick material , so airy recipes can catch on the sides of the pan as they rise in the oven. Typically fitted with feet on their top edge, Angel Cake pans are also designed to stand upside down while cooling to prevent the cake from collapsing.
Ideal for Cheesecake and Gateau Genoise, as well as delicate pies that cannot be turned over while cooling, the silicone molds have a non-removable bottom and non-adjustable sides that are not secured by a clamp. Once the cake has cooled, he no longer needs to open the tongs to release the sides. You can then leave the bottom of the mold under the cake during the service or remove it carefully.
Silicone molds are used for making cupcakes and other pastries. As they are soft silicone, you can easily remove your desserts from the mold once they have cooled.
These new flexible silicone molds are also oven safe and do not require lining like many other cake pans , but lightly greasing the mold before baking may be beneficial for some recipes. They come in many mold shapes and sizes and are a great way to make multiple uniform desserts once.
