      Hi Leng,
      Yes you can use your silicone cupcake mold but you must grease and flour your molds generously. And since silicone is a poor heat conductor you can add about 5-10 minutes or wait until its lightly brown. And let it cool completely before removing from your molds to avoid the crust from breaking.
