The cake shop It is one of the culinary arts that can be most gratifying, nobody is bitter about a sweet and surprising with a good dessert always guarantees the success of the evening.
In addition, if we do not have too much skill in the kitchen, a good way to start is precisely with making cakes and other sweets, since, although it is not very easy, one of the secrets of baking is to measure each ingredient in detail and follow very specific steps, leaving little room for improvisation or error.
But as in everything, to make the most spectacular cake and sponge recipes, we need tools such as molds that serve as a container and also help us shape our dessert. These are some of the favorites that we list on Amazon, a selection of the best sellers, in addition to those that we consider most practical and original:
Many of us already know Lékué first-hand for its silicone gadgets that allow us to cook in a matter of seconds in the microwave from a fish in papillote to a French omelette, but the universe of salty is not the only thing that it is good at to the brand, they also have molds to make cakes and biscuits.
A clear example is the best-seller on Amazon right now, this spiral-shaped silicone mold that in addition to being non-stick promises to be very easy when removing the cake from the mold. We find it from 12.90 euros.
