Lakeland Loaf Tin Liners
Advantages: Keeps cakes moist reduces cleaning and add a nice touch if giving cakes as a gift
Disadvantages: will add 10 pence cost to each cake
These loaf tin liners from Lakeland are a great addition to any one's kitchen who likes to do baking. One of my favourite things to bake is a lemon drizzle cake and the recipe that I use from the "The hairy Bikers" recommends a loaf tin. I find the greasing and lining of the tray with normal greaseproof paper difficult as I always ended with it looking like a work of origami with bits cut out wrong and overlaid. These liners are great as they are made from a silicone paper so there is no fiddly greasing cutting involved. You simply insert these into your loaf tin in the same way you would put a bun case into a tray for making cup cakes or muffins and add your cake mixture to them.
The liners are very robust I find and even if I am doing a heavy tea loaf with lots of sticky raisins and the like in them then they lift out of the tin in one piece with no damage to the liner. With the lemon drizzle cake that I make it the liner also holds a lot of the drizzle in the cake rather than it running down the sides and being lost.
One of the wonderful things about these liners is that it means you can make batches of cakes a lot more easily as you don't need to wash out the tin in between batches as the liner keeps the tin nice and clean.
The liners I also find give a cake a nice professional touch so if I am taking a cake as a gift to someone for birthdays for example then it adds to the presentation and makes it look a lot more appealing.
I also find by using these liners it seems to protect the cake mixture and I no longer get dry edges to my cakes and loafs which is an added bonus.
Lakeland claim that you can re use these liners with a sponge down but this is only thing I have to disagree with them about as I personally have never manage this due to the fluting on the edges of the liners seeming to hold on to bits of cake.
When buying these I would suggest keeping the inner at the bottom of the liners packaging as this helps you remember which size to get. On one occasion I have got the wrong size however Lakeland were very good at letting me swap it for the correct size a week later.
Overall I would definitely recommend these liners to people who love baking cakes they are well made and help keep the edges of your cakes moist and reduce the need for washing up. They also add a nice touch to cakes if you are giving them for gifts or for school fete as they make cakes look a lot more professional. At £4.29 for a pack of 40 they do add 10 pence to the price of each cake made but to me they are worth this small extra expense.
