I’m a fairly recent convert to silicone cake moulds. I picked up a six-hole silicone muffin ‘tin’ in a charity shop a few years ago and was really impressed with its ease of use and cleaning.
The hemisphere moulds (#1) allow you to make fun and unusual cakes. Edible tennis or footballs? Sweet hamburgers? Pretend Christmas puddings!
What I like about the cupcake cases (#2) is that you can reuse them again and again – no need for paper cases… and they’re heart-shaped!
I recently discovered this jigsaw-like silicone mould (#3) whose 8 pieces slot together to form all sorts of shapes. It doesn’t even need a bottom, so makes traditional loose-bottomed and spring-form tins redundant. And not to mention requires a lot less space to store!
