If you been baking for as long as I have, you have seen how throughout the years more and more improvements are being made with methods and equipments. One of those have been the slowly and steady move from the traditional baking pans to baking with silicone made pans.
I have used silicone baking pans before and have mixed feeling about them. Some worked, while others were complete flops. I do have to be honest the flops were on the cheap end of the spectrum. But, my main concern was their general flimsiness and my visions of overflowing batter as the pan/cups folding unto itself creating a giant mess. Can you imagine cleaning an oven full of spilled batter? No bueno.
