When I first saw these silicone baking dishes I thought they were genius. My biggest problem with baking anything is trying to get it out of the pan. I was a little nervous about putting the silicone in the oven, I know in my head it's not supposed to melt, but it looks like rubber and rubber totally melts! Filling the rubber pan is tricky. I guess if I and thought ahead better, it might have gone better but I was excited and I guess I wasn't thinking as well as I should have been. Make sure to place the silicone pan on a regular metal baking sheet. Otherwise moving it with the batter in it will be somewhere between difficult and disastrous. After my initial fumble, things went much more smoothly. Removing the cake was easier than with a metal cake pan, though not as easy as I had hoped. You've got to really let the cake cool down first or sticking is still a major issue. Ease of Cleaning Cleaning is super simple. The silicone washes up really easily.
