PUSHPAN CAKE TIN – A BRILLIANT WAY TO BAKE YOUR CAKE…

Lakeland Cake Tin

The pushpan from Lakeland is a loose-based cake pan that has a silicone seal at the bottom, which guarantees the mixture ‘wont’ leak out.

Simply grease the tin and your cakes will be released smoothly with no rough or damaged edges, no matter how deep they are.

My tea of the week HAS to be ‘Tea Palace’s’, Diamond Jubilee Blend, which I have mentioned before.

It has been made into a refined blend of the finest single estate black teas to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11’s Diamond Jubilee.

I also think its a perfect accompaniment to a traditional afternoon tea.
