The best cake tins are durable, made from high-quality and food-safe ingredients, and serve many different functions. There are a few kinds of cake tins you should include in your cake-baking arsenal. The right cake tin can make or break your chance to shine as a master cake maker.

Springform Pan

A springform pan is so called because after the cake is baked, you can release it from the pan by undoing the latch that secures the pan's pieces together. Springform cake pans are generally round, and a 9- or 13-inch diameter is most useful for standard cake recipes. Non-stick springform pans make the releasing process even easier, as the residue left behind by the cake will be minimised, ensuring a more attractive finished product.

Loaf Pan

Ideal for baking different sweet breads -- like banana or zucchini -- a loaf pan is a must for any cake enthusiast looking to round out his collection of pans and tins. Loaf pans can most commonly be found in the 9-inch size. Since most loaf-cake recipes depend on the use of a loaf pan to ensure that the cake cooks properly, a loaf pan is an indispensable part of any baker's cabinet.

Fluted Cake Pan

Fluted cakes are famous in North America and easily identified by their characteristic ridges and ring shape. Those ridges and ring shape are possible only because of the equally famous fluted cake pan, a cake tin that allows the baker to make highly decorative cakes with almost no additional effort. Fluted cake pans have earned their place in the list of the best cake tins because of their versatility and impressive ease of use.

Sheet Cake Pan

A standard, rectangular pan for making sheet cake may appear basic, but don't let appearances deceive you. The possibilities presented by a sheet-cake pan are endless. Sheet cakes are the building blocks of layer cakes, wedding cakes, and cakes in different shapes and designs that can be achieved simply by carving and rearranging a large sheet of cake. The most useful dimensions for your sheet cake pan are 13 by 9 inches.
