5.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent quality, 12 Oct. 2013
This does exactly what it says on the tin; it's a great tin for making angel food cake. Just taken one out of the oven and it's perfect. Light and airy, so springy - it's like eating a cloud!
As others have said, it's aluminium (so therefore very lightweight and excellent at conducting heat) and specifically designed for making angel food cake. Not bundt cakes, not fruit cakes and not run-of-the-mill sponges. It's a specialist tin - so remember that before leaving 1-star feedback cos your friend's birthday cake came out burnt on the outside and raw in the middle!
I didn't have the problem that others seemed to encounter with the label - maybe Wilton have listened to the feedback? Mine was held down with just 1 dot of the peelable goo that you get when you receive a card from your bank/credit card company - easy peasy to peel off.
Cleaning-wise, it's a doddle. It looks horrendous when you remove the cake from the pan (obviously encrusted with dried on sponge as you can't grease the tin) - but 30 secs soak in hot, soapy water and it just wipes off - no scrubbing, no marking the tin.
It has a removable bottom so there's no faffing, trying and praying that you don't rip the top of your cake in removing it.
All in all, I'm absolutely delighted with my purchase. These things are like hen's teeth to get in the UK - none of the major suppliers seem to stock them.
