When I first saw this Lékué Cake Portion Mold, I was so happy. Not only is it a pretty red colour but what a fabulous idea for a cake pan where everyone can have their own individual piece, baked specially just for them!
Forget cake crumbs in your icing as you cut the cake, with each slice bake individually that takes care of the cake crumb problem, and not only that, they can be decorated uniquely and mess-free.
But there's more. You no longer have to decide: Chocolate or vanilla? You can do both! Or chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, or vanilla cake with vanilla frosting, or chocolate with vanilla. Nuts or no nuts. Raisins, or no raisins. Chocolate chips? Sure, why not. Don't like them, not a problem! Everyone can be happy. Each slice can be as individual as the tastes in your household!
It was so simple to do. I flavoured half of the batter with cocoa powder and then I swirled chocolate and white batter together for several of the cakes, left some plain white and then the rest plain chocolate. Into the various slices I mixed a variety of ingredients . . . nuts, chocolate chips, fresh blueberries, raisins, etc.
The cakes slipped perfectly from out of the pan, with no sticking at all. I liked that.
And it was a lot of fun decorating each slice differently. This would be so much fun for a kids party where you let them each decorate their own slices!
I have a few other silicone tools in my kitchen and I am fond of their lightness and ease of use, cleaning and storage. This cleaned beautifully in the microwave.
