I have been looking all over to find the molds to make the Gold Ingots.  Has anyone found this size anywhere?  I would prefer the tin molds rather then the silicone ones.

Just be sure to wash silicone by hand, as it can take on off flavors from the dishwasher and transfer them to your cupcakes/financiers.  I just had to throw out an entire batch of heart-shaped baby grands because they tasted like dish detergent from just one cycle in the dishwasher.

It has never come across to me that dishwasher detergent can be that persistant.  But I do see the issue.  I used to soak my silicone spatulas in sudsy manual wash dish soap, overnight, and indeed the spatulas picked the scent from the soap!  Now, I handwash with hot water and the same manual dish soap, don’t soak them.  Then when I do laundry, I toss my spatulas there!  The same for silicone pans.  It is of my total satisfaction!

Thanks in helping me find the silicone molds as well as the washing information that I will need.  One other question, when you use the silicone molds do you have to season them first?  If so, how is this done?  Thanks.

You do have to grease or grease/flour silicone, I believe just greasing well with the first use is enough seasoning (that’s what I do).  I also store silicone items (pans, silpats) with a paper towel wrapped around them so they won’t exude oil into my clean cabinets and onto other pans.

I was having the same problem locating those molds, which are also specified for the brownie bites.  So far the most extensive selection of silicone bakeware I have seen is at bakedeco.com.  They have a number of cake/financier molds, one of which is 3.11” x 1.14” x 1.18” which is the closest I’ve seen.  The paderno ones at amazon don’t give dimensions, but they appear to be quite a bit smaller than this…or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
