Hi there! I recently found this site when I asked a friend a question and she recommended I post here icon_smile.gif

I am a for-fun baker and have recently been adding fun looking silicone ice trays to my Ebay lists and started thinking about using the ice trays to bake! [for example the Gin & Titonic ice tray or the jeweled ice cubes are all available to check out on Amazon]. I was just wondering if there's any guidelines for using ice trays for baking. I would really love any advice and if anyone knows that it has to be a specific type of silicone or how thick or something that would prevent one from using ice trays to bake.

Thanks so much in advance!!

If the product was designed to withstand freezing, that doesn't mean it's also designed to withstand baking temperatures.

I wouldn't use those ice cube trays for baking when silicone bakeware is so readily availabe - and safe!
