I've only used silicone molds to make mini flans, panna cotta, mousse, etc. Never for a full cake, but...


Make sure your silicone mold is resting on a sheet tray and that it's not tilted to one side or the other, that it's not crooked, etc. Pour the batter slowly and tap the sheet tray to the counter carefully before it goes in the oven. Pretty sure, just make sure the shape goes on the sheet tray undisturbed. 


Does that make sense?

They work fine for small cakes but not full sized cakes. Use metal pans instead.

Silicone cake ball pans don't work. They are too flexible, and when the cake rises in the oven it lifts the top and makes a complete mess. I have a friend who discovered this and I ended up having to lend her my metal cake ball pans for her daughter's birthday.

Tried the silicone mold pans, everything stuck and was lopsided.  Awful luck with cake, tossed them.
