    Anyone have any idea where I could get a 12 inch square silicone cake tin?

    Hi. My daughter is having a joint 11th Birthday Disco in a few weeks time with her friend. I have managed to get Mother-in-Law to agree to bake the cake cos she's a great home cook, but I am struggling to find a silicone cake tin as big as I need (just my preference as I will be re-using these afterwards). 9 inch is about the largest I have found. Have found a site that sells reasonably priced metal 12 inch tins (£7.49 each plus postage) but would really like to get hold of the silicone ones if I can. Any help or advice would be appreciated. It may be that the silicone ones are a waste of money - I'd be interested to hear if that's the case so I can end my search and just get the metal ones instead. Thanks in advance, Liz

    But smaller 1s...then put the joint the separate cakes by using icing.

    I use all silicone cases now for my cakes, they are much better, you dont need to worry about lining them, saves time cooking too. I bought my 12inch square from Makro, it has cut the cooking time for a fruit cake from 8 hours to 5, they are definately worth the extra cost.

    It's good to hear that they are worth getting. Unfortunately, I don't have a Makro Store close to me - it's about 45 miles away! I was hoping that someone knew of an online retailer ... Thanks though

    There's some here

    I've not used this firm so I don't know what they are like or you could try ebay.

    Edit, they are 10 inch

    I checked out this site but unfortunately their largest square one is just over 9 inches. They look really nice though.

    Do you have any cake supplies shops near by? If so ask them to order the right size for you? We have a couple of good suppliers locally that I use and they are great at ordering stuff that I cant find myself.

    I bought some small ones from TJHughes for £1!!! and i was sure they had big heart shaped ones. Maybe try and look in a store if you have one near you and you may get lucky and find the one you want as they change the stock all the time. Good luck x

    I have just rung one local stockist and they sell Masterclass. They seem to think they are rolling out this stuff very slowly and there is nothing as big as 12" in their catalogue. I have a local florist that I am gonna ring who also sell cake craft supplies. They hire out stuff and may know more. If it comes to it and I can't get what I want I shall just hire a normal tin from them :-(

    Lakeland Plastics sell loads of baking stuff & are online - check them out. :thumbsup:

    I have visited this site, though to no avail. They do have deep roast and bake tin which is about 14 x 10.5 inches which would give me the same effect (i.e.just over 12" overall). Masterclass have a similar one that is a bit cheaper so I will probably 'plop' for that one. At least getting the silicone one will give me added versatility. If I were to buy just a metal tin, I would probably never use it again, whereas at least I can use the silicone roast and bake pan for other things. I am very grateful for all your help. Let's hope the cake turns out ok now!!

    What about Asda? I bought normal cake tins from there and noticed they had silicon ones. Didnt check out the prices or anything though,
