My best friend/ flatmate get really bored sometimes so in some cases, we decide to bake. As we end up making quite a lot of little cakes in one go, we need a hell of a lot of cake cases and ours come from Asda.

For 100 paper cases it will only cost you 48p which makes each case less than half a penny. The cases come in a round plastic container with them stacked on top of one another. The case is only a little bigger than the cases themselves but this means that they are all kept in place nicely and they won’t go all over. The lid has a round white sticker on it which gives the Asda logo, the name of the product, a small description of what they can be used for and a huge barcode.

For the price I paid, I was pleasantly pleased with how thick these cake cases were. I was expecting to get cases that were extremely thin and that some of them would rip as I took them out of the packaging. Luckily, this was not the case. The cases are quite thick and are all white. The colour is a bit boring but colouring items costs money and this is why they are so cheap. Also, when you eat the cakes from them you only rip them off anyway.

These cases are an average size for making cakes but unlike what the packaging says, they would be too small for cupcakes. However, they are great for regular fairy cakes or cornflake cakes etc which are the kinds of things I use them for. Once I had filled my cake tray with the cases I began to spoon in the cake mixture. Even though these cases are quite thick, I had to be careful as if I didn’t get the mixture right in the middle to weigh the case down, it would move about a bit in the tray. This can end up with you getting cake mix everywhere which is not the desired outcome – obviously.

Once my cakes were cooked, I did notice that some of the cases had turned brown at the edges but this was either because them left them in a little too long or I had spilt mixture on them. The cases aren’t the prettiest things to put on cakes but they do the job well enough. When it came to eating a cake, the case came off really easily and without any of the paper sticking to the cake, which I guess is where the thickness of them comes in handy.

For the price I paid, I certainly can’t complain at this product. As it is only us at home eating the cakes we make, I’m not bothered about the cases being pretty but I would probably buy something else if I were baking for other people.
