My happiest time in the kitchen these days is with my stainless steel bake pans when I am making treats for my grandkids. There is so much joy in seeing happy faces giggling with delight because their Nana “understands” them. I love cooking with stainless steel cookware so my bakeware preference is also stainless steel.
Discovering fun dessert recipes I can share with my “sweeties” has caused me to break out of my comfort zone and venture into cooking techniques that I always considered too intimidating. For example, fondant. I’ve always enjoyed seeing the beautiful works of art that can be created using this delicacy. However, for me, using fondant just looked too complicated to try. Plus, even though I admired the beautiful fondant designs, I never really liked the taste of it. This all changed when I discovered some amazing and delicious fondant recipes.
So armed with a desire for a challenge and a bit more confidence, I was prepared to try something new.
There is nothing like a kid’s birthday that will have you researching Monster High doll cakes, Lego cupcakes and just
about every princess and hero out there. Most of these creations use colorful fondant. If you love the artistic art you can create with it but are concerned about using food dyes, there are ways to get around this. Fondant can be colored using dyes made from natural foods. This site shows you how to make your own organic food coloring.

Now If you also want to use baking pans that are safe and healthy, you want to use bakeware that is not toxic. Stainless steel is a healthy metal. It is very durable and resists wear and tear and dents. You don’t have to worry about flaking or toxic chemical leaching into your hard work. However, it has an unfortunate and unnecessary reputation of causing food to stick to pans. This is generally not the case with bakeware since baking requires the addition of an oil or flour to the pan.
As for uneven heating, the following bakeware items all distributes heat well which means your baked goods will cook thoroughly.
