Is it like the paper cup cake sold in crystal jade? I love those cakes. They tell me use paper cup, but I do not like paper cup with prints just incase the color emit somethg toxic. I have not tried this kind of cake thou. :) See your cake make me so hungry.

Hi Simonne, I use a Delonghi oven. I cannot remember the model number anymore. But this is how it looks like.

Please scroll down for photos. You might be able to recognize it when you chance upon it in the malls.

I like it because of the size (which is generally bigger than other tabletop ovens). If I'm not wrong, at the time of my purchase, it was the biggest tabletop oven available.

I also like it that the fan is at the back and not at the side which helps in even better heat distribution. And it has a light (which my fuse has blown some time back, have yet to get it changed).
