Lately I have became quite the baker whether it’s cakes, cupcakes or cookies for my family I’ve been having a blast creating items from scratch and putting my own twist on them. Baking is fun because you can create delicious sweets for the household and I love letting my kids help in the baking process. Now onto the things I dislike is all the messes. Baking requires a lot of dishes and utensils being made than you use a cookie sheet to bake your cookies and that just one more, hard to clean product. Well I found the solution to having one less dish during baking and it’s called a Silicone Baking Mat – Non-stick and can be purchased on Amazon for just $11.90 shipped with Amazon Prime.
The Silicone Baking Mat from Baker’s Mat is a must have for any baker in the household. Cleaning up just got easier with the non stick silicone mat that can easily be placed on a cookie sheet and after baking is complete can be set on your counters to let your goods cool. One thing I love about this mat is a spatula is not necessary to scrape the cookies away, just pick up with your fingers and they come off easily. Gone are the days of cinnamon roll icing making a mess all over my cookie sheets, or cookies getting crisp and sticking to the pan. Hello to easy clean up and delicious baked goods that are less likely to burn underneath. We used this baking mat the very first day it arrived and it made beautiful, delicious, gooey chocolate chip cookies without any fuss. Now you can elimiate foil and parchment paper during the baking process because all you need is one of these silicone baking mats and you’ll be in bakers heaven!
