The day it was announced there would be no more Twinkies I went straight to the internet to see if I could find Twinkie molds. Even though I hadn't had one in years (sorry Hostess), I couldn't imagine a world where Twinkies didn't exist. I made the mistake of looking for Twinkie recipes before I looked for Twinkie molds, so by the time I looked for Twinkie molds, they were sold out! I came across these and bought them as a substitue. They are a perfect size for a mini-Twinkie, a Twinkette perhaps? The molds came with extensive directions on the care and use of silicon bakeware, which was good because I had never used it before and actually, I wasn't even sure if I was going to be comfortable cooking in silicone. The Twinkettes came out great. I have only used the molds once but I like them and I am glad I bought them. Also, in the pamphlet that came with the molds, there is a section about silicone being made from compressed sand. I did not know that before, I thought it was a man-made plastic. It is not, and that really made me feel comfortable cooking with this material.
I love silicone bake-ware. I was skeptical when I first saw ads for them on television. I was also skeptical about the floppy nature of the pans holding up structurally. However, having used the pans now, I plan to trade all of my metal bake-ware for silicon. The bake time decreases, which means you need to adjust the recipes accordingly, but otherwise they are great. There is no need to grease and flour before putting the batter into the pan and the bread or cake pops out perfectly!
