Good product but isn't non-stick
on 14 February 2012
I bought this cake tin on the recommendation of Fiona Cairns as I wanted to make the teapot cake in her Birthday Cake book. The cake came out beautifully. I also made my Christmas pudding in it. The instructions do say that you need to line the tin with baking paper before you make the pudding. It comes out beautifully if you do. The second time I attempted a ball cake (a Christmas baubel) it also stuck, although I'd greased it well, and I had to start again. You absolutely need to line the tin when you use it. I use two overlapping semi circles of baking paper for the bottom and strips round the side, using melted butter applied with a pastry brush to keep them in place. It's not too difficult and it's worth it for the results.
