S-XL Cake Mold: Love It or Hate It?

When I first saw this S-XL baking pan, I thought it was pretty cool. It's a silicone mold that pre shapes any cake into fifteen separate, different sized slices. It allows one person to have a small piece and another to have a large piece. Yet, the more I thought about it, the more I disliked it. It won't really work for any cake; what happens to the indentations when you frost it? Actually, with the uneven layers, can you even frost it? What do you think?

How hard is it to slice a cake... really?

Exactly. If you want a small piece of cake just cut a small piece. Plus I would think it would be very difficult to get the cake out of this pan in one piece.

I'm thinking about this tectonic plates cake we were trying to make for a friend who majored in geology. The mould would've come in handy!

It looks really cool and I don't like frosting anyway. Plus, as someone mentioned you could frost or add berries to each part individually (like you frost cookies individually) and it would look even cooler!

That's so incredibly stupid, I can't imagine anyone buying it. Just cut the cake into different sized pieces like we've been doing since cakes were invented!!!!

Ehhh, I'm not too sure about this. The concept is cool, but, it looks like one of those things that my Mom sets out as "decoration only" at Christmas. lol

Someone that really likes cake would. I think I'd need 2 of the large slices. Yeah, that'd be perfect.

Who would even eat a piece of cake as big as the large slices??

Good in theory, maybe not so good in practice due to the frosting issues.

Artists like it for dimension - not for practicality. I like it!
