Rose’s Heavenly Cake Strip
Jul 25, 2007 | From the kitchen of Rose
I’m thrilled to report that after working extensively with the wonderful silicone bakeware of Lékué I have come to understand the advantages of its properties so well I was inspired to create my first silicone product—a silicone cake strip! It works like a charm and it’s everything I wanted it to be.
The strip fits a 9 inch round or 8 inch square pan. It is quick and easy to attach—NO PREPPING—You simply turn the pan upside down and slip it around the sides. It then works to insulate the sides of a metal cake pan, slowing down baking at the sides of the cake. You can even use it for a 10 inch round pan if you run the strip under hot tap water or wave a hair drier over it to make stretching it easier for the larger size pan. it will return to it's original size on cooling.
It produces better cakes:
* more even
* less doming
* less shrinking from sides
* less browning and drying of sides
* it stays like new for years
* is dishwasher safe
* is oven safe up to 500°F/260°C.
(Do not subject to direct heat such as a flame or broiler)
Harold Import Company is the distributor for the cake strip. It will be in retail stores by Fall and I will list an on-line order site as soon as it’s available.
