Rose's Heavenly Cake Strip

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 Other advantages: * 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.
