Take your dessert presentation up a whole notch with this MONAZONE Ceramic Pumpkin Baking Bowl with Lid. It comes in 4 vibrant hues –  red, green, orange and white. Prettify your Sticky Date Pudding or Keto Raspberry Chocolate Bread Pudding in them, and dig in like a queen or king. Their little handles make it a breeze to move around and a matching decorative lid keeps the warmth of your dessert in. They easily double up as soup holders or even snack bowls. A quick note of caution – ensure that the lid does not go into your oven as the gold tip is not made to withstand high temperatures. The main bowl material is made from quality ceramic, which is good for keeping the heat in.  

6. KY Non-Stick Rectangle Bread Pan

For minimalists and those who only want to get one piece of bakeware, we would recommend this KY Non-Stick Rectangle Bread Pan. Why a bread and not a cake pan? Well, cake pans take up more space – both in terms of the equipment itself and the cake, while in the fridge. Bread pans are perfect for couples or families who don’t crave huge portions of sweet desserts. Every typical cake recipe like Thai Milk Tea Cheesecake that calls for a cake pan can be converted to bread pans by diving by half normally, or adjusting it such that no more than 2 cups of flour is used in baking. Needles to say, a creamy One-Dish Gula Melaka Bread and Butter Pudding will fit in there well, as with other kinds of bread loafs.

7. Dolity Decorative Swirls Bundt Cake Mold

Silicon is the “new” kid in the block in terms of bakeware material – it was invented by a Frenchman Guy Demarle in the 1960s, which is pretty recent in terms of baking history. If you ever had cakes that refused to be separated from the cake tin despite your vigorous shaking, well, this Dolity Decorative Swirls Bundt Cake Mold will definitely bring you some sweet relief. Its flexible yet durable properties allow you to coax your cake gently out of the mold without destroying it, and the hole in the center means you will never have undercooked middle sections again. You can even use it for non-bake desserts like the jiggle-ly Moss Jelly (Puding Lumut Mentega), and create those attractive swirls in a heartbeat.
