Invita, Silverwood and Windsor are all popular, solid, makes - although i use the my kitchen range from lakeland, and am very happy.
try too, as its mainly uk cakers, it can be more useful!

I use PME tins and have to say they are very good. I have just bought all new tins.

I thought I would mention also that the PME tins are made by fat daddio icon_biggrin.gif

I love my invicta tins, but I have a couple of silverwood tins which have been quite good too.
Honestly, you don't need to spend a fortune on tins though, for most everyday stuff I am just using the heavy duty tins from tescos. The main reason I bought the invicta tins is because I got a good price for a full set and it is better to have a set of tins of the same make as sometimes the measurements can vary across makes which can cause problems for stacked cakes.

If you are in the UK, have a look at Windsor cake craft for the invicta tins - I bought the full set (4-14 inch round) for about £110 and postage was free which was the cheapest I found them.

I believe Crisco is Trex (UK) or Cookeen (Ireland), it is basically the white fat and the only thing I use it for is stopping my flower paste from sticking while rolling or modelling.

thats what i thought it was yuck.. i see most of the recipies on here even buttercream uses crisco instead of butter. shur there would be no tast its pure fat... i use cookeen for my sugar paste modeling to stop it cracking... ya i was on windsor site yesterday an seen the victia tins they look good your cakes obviously come out of the tins o.k but i thought they looked a bit shinny do you have to use greas proof paper with them or can ya get away with just greasing them?? i have 1 silverwoods tin an its handy enough never tried it with paper yet though

HI Skinnyminx, you do need to grease and line the Invicta tins

Yep the tins need greasing and lining but they are so easy to do and only need single lining. I particularly love how easy the Invicta tins are to clean icon_wink.gif

I hear ya on the Crisco - I can't imagine using anything like that in my buttercream, sure I'm even reluctant to using it when rolling my icing cause I'm always worried it will make it greasy!! I noticed there are a lot of recipes using it alright though and do wonder what the taste would be like in comparison.
