Dear all,

Can anyone help me with ideas?

Our daughter is getting married in Sept this year and I have offered to make the cakes.

Daughter has decided on a rich fruit cake for the top layer to cut ( which I have already made and its being feed  with sherry every week:O)))

For the bottom 2 layers she wants large cup cakes as seen at wedding fairs ( seems they are all the in thing at the moment)

Problem I have is: can anyone give me ideas where to look for deep cupcake pans/tins?

Warm wishes from Pam

I got a bright blue, 6-cup silcone muffin tray for £1.50 in B&M. I've used it twice and it's done a grand job, although it's quite floppy and needs to be put on a baking sheet to make it easy to handle in and out of the oven. Might be worth having a look at it if you've got a B&M store near you.

Though not such good value as Shereen's Surprised

Good luck,

These silicone moulds drive me nuttyLaugh I hate them!!! They are hard to clean/take cakes out and in and out of oven needs a metal tray ( seems we might as well have used a metal tray to start with lol!!!!!

Give me metal any time, But just imho.

I'm hugely unimpressed with silicone moulds- just a new way to make us buy cake moulds...very hard to get anything out of them,even when carefully greased and as for cleaning...argh! and they have to be used on a tray.I suppose if you line them with paper they might work, but life's too short to be arsing around like that!

Oh, that's a shame - people around me have been telling me how fab they are.

So, last week, I purchased the 12 colourful little cupcake cases, as I've found that the regular cake cases retain some of my little fairy cakes on the papers! I thought, no, I hoped that these just might be better!

Pam, I think you're right, though, about the metal ones - my sticky toffee puddings I cooked last week in Delia's recommended dariole moulds (anodised aluminium) did actually slip straight out, and they were beautifully shaped.

Pam - just stumbled across these big cup cake moulds if you're still looking for some but they are silicone!

I bought a load of the little silicone cupcake moulds too and yes - absolute pig to get things out of.  What I do is line with a paper case and fill a tray with them - means I can cook 20 cupcakes at once.

I did use them to make mini bitesized homity pies once and they came out ok, guess due to the fat content of the pastry?

Thanks all....BUT No thanks lol!

No more silicone moulds in this house. I rekon these will go straight out of fashion in no time...just a gimmick.

I even tried lining mine,BUT i cannot see the point in these moulds....have to use metal tins to put on...cake papers etc. Might as wel do the metal tin in first place I rekon?
