New to Baking?
Baking is a traditional past time that is now more popular than ever, due to TV personalities like Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry, along with shows like BBC’s Great British Bake Off (GBBO). The TV might make making bread, cakes and puddings look easy, but if you’re new to baking, where should you start?
1. Traybake Pan
Best served with a cup of Tea or Coffee, Traybakes are usually simple to make and a great way to start baking. Choose a loose base Traybake pan for easy release of your recipes.
This Silverwood Traybake Pan is made with heavy gauge anodised aluminium alloy, with welded corners and straight sides to make it robust for the most flavoursome recipes.
2. Cake Tin Liners
It’s never fun to find out that your hard-mixed cake has stuck to the tin in the oven. Lining the side of your cake tin with an Easybake Cake Tin Liner, and the bottom with an Easybake Siliconised Greaseproof Circle will make stuck bakes a thing of the past. Cut both to suit the size of your cake tin for the perfect fit.
3. Pastry Cutters
Pastry cutters are the quick and easy way to cut out biscuits, small cakes and other treats. This set of 6 Stainless Steel Pastry Cutters from Silverwood is double-sided, one plain and the other fluted, providing a versatile and space-saving way of cutting both shapes. Dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, they come in 6 sizes to help you get the size of biscuit you desire.

Our range of Silverwood Multi Mini Cake Pan Sets come in a range of shapes including square, circle, heart and hexagon. They incorporating a clever two-piece body to allow baked cakes to be removed intact and with no fuss. Like the mini pudding moulds, they are manufactured from Anodised Alloy, specially chosen for its properties of fast and even heat distribution.
6. Simple Simon Pie Mould Set
Once you’ve perfected your pie recipe, you want to make enough to share around, right? A Simple Simon Set allows you to bake six identical, individual pies at once, so you can give them out and show off your skills. Pick a Simple Simon Pie Mould with removable walls which will allow the sides of the pies to be egg washed before returning to the oven for browning.
7. Spherical Moulds
As your baking confidence grows, you will look to explore new recipes and ideas to impress your friends and family. A Spherical Pudding Mould is a unique pan that creates a round sphere. Two halves of the spherical pan clamp together to form a perfect ball. These are perfect for traditional Christmas Puddings, sponge puddings, summer pudding, novelty ball cakes and ice cream bombs.
