This Cake Shaper Lets You Bake Any Shape

A woman removes a silicone mold from the edges of a heart-shaped cake.

Tired of all of your cake pans coming crashing down on as soon as you open your cabinet? There’s a solution for that. A cake shaper allows you to customize your baked good’s shape and cuts down on all those pesky oddly shaped pans.

While you might already have stacks of bread, sheet, and circle pans, more complex baking shapes can be a bit more difficult. Not only do they wreak havoc on your organizational system (how do you stack a heart-shaped tin?), but more specific designs can be difficult to find. Enter the cake shaper.

The handy gadget by brand MiTBA is on sale at Amazon and allows bakers to customize their baking shapes. The black bendable strips are made of thick silicone that’s both sturdy enough to create a mold and safe to bake. The set includes four strips that can be connected together to form anything from hearts to butterflies to diamonds.

The cake shaper, however, isn’t just for cakes. While sure, that’s its primary use, the strips can also be used to cook things like pancakes and form pizza for a fun breakfast or dinner with kids. Plus, the price is definitely right. The four-piece set currently retails for just $10.87, and the brand offers a 60-day money-back guarantee.

If you’ve been looking to downsize the number of baking sheets you have or you just really want to try to make a butterfly cake, the cake shaper could help.
