Baking is one of the favourite pastimes of children right across the globe and our desire to bake means that over the years our kitchen seems to become the home of a wide range of cooking and baking supplies designed to mould almost any kitchen creation that we want. Birthdays, anniversaries and various other occasions are all reasons for us to need to bake something special, even if it's just for a bake sale to raise money for charity, and having the right bakeware is crucial to the finished product.

The majority of bakeware these days is made from the flexible material silicone. Silicone is perfect for this kind of work as it is one of few substances able to stand extreme temperatures, this means that there is no risk of the silicone melting into your food as it bakes.

For children, the flexibility of silicone means that they can have fun baking while at the same time remaining safe. Unlike glass baking tins or casserole dishes, silicone will not break when dropped and is very easy to clean.

If you are baking a cake there are a wide range of options available, including different sizes and shapes to cater for any design and shape. Round cake tins are the most common and silicone is also a popular choice for these designs. The main reason silicone is chosen is due to its non-stick properties which makes it quite easy to remove a cake from the mould once it is baked.

Silicone also remains fairly cool and does not heat up to a high temperature like other cake tins or trays, this means that if your children to decide to remove the cake from the oven themselves there is less chance that they will incur a burn. Likewise, if you leave the tin lying around on the side it will cool very quickly making it safe for children to carry.
