Why Use a Springform Cake Tin?
A Springform Cake Tin is a type of round baking tin where the base and side are separate, and the circumference of the tin has a clasp to pull it tight. This clasp can be quickly unclipped to allow the sides of the tin to come away easily from the cooked contents and the base. The fact that the Andrew James baking tins also have a non-stick coating means the outside of your cake stays whole, with no chunks sticking to the tin, making it so much easier to decorate.
What Are The Sizes of These Cake Tins?
Our round cake tins come in two different sizes. There’s an 8 inch cake tin (22cm), and a larger 10 inch baking tin (26cm). Both are over 6cm deep so you have room to cook a taller sponge that can be cut into layers.
Can I Use Them For Cheesecakes or Pies?
Don’t just keep this baking tin for cakes, it’s ideal for making all sorts of delicious treats including both baked and unbaked cheesecakes, and even some pies. This baking tin can be used in the fridge, for making quick and easy no-bake cakes. You can also use it in the freezer to store your cooked cakes before you decorate them. And, of course, this round cake tin is ideal for use in both electric and gas ovens and cookers.
Why Does This Tin Have a Patterned Base?
The base of this tin features a textured pattern designed to prevent hot spots from forming. These are areas of the tin which become hotter than the rest of it, and can cause over cooked or burnt areas on your sponge or biscuit base.
Do I Need a Liner For This Round Cake Tin?
Because this tin has a non-stick surface you don’t need to line it. However, if you want to serve the cake off the base, or need to lift it off using a metal spatula rather than a silicone one, you may want to cover it with a circle of parchment paper to prevent any scratches.
Is It Dishwasher Safe?
Our baking tins are made from carbon steel with a stainless steel latch system. To maintain the non-stick properties and prevent tarnishing of the tin you should wash it only with warm soapy water. Do not put any part of this tin through a dishwasher. Always make sure your cake tin is completely dry before you store it away, one great tip is to put some kitchen roll in the base before you attach the sides for storage to prevent the build up of condensation and to help prevent any accidental scratches.

This cake tin features a loose base and will not create a perfect seal, so you may expect a little leakage if you are making a fruit cake or other cakes with high liquid or fat content. If you’re making a fruit cake for Christmas or a wedding, our best tip is to double line your tin. This is where you put a circle of parchment, slightly wider than the base, on the bottom and push it into the crease. Next, cover the sides with a long rectangle that sits inside of the creased paper then finish of with another ‘oversized’ circle on the base to create the best seal.
