Easy to use, fantastic results.
on 3 September 2009
I have never used a shaped cake tin before and was nervous that the cake would stick in parts and be something of a let down. I took the manufacturer's advice and used a baking oil spray to coat the inside of the tin and have had perfect results with several baking sessions from this tin. The finished cake really does look spectaculr. I made a few for the local village fete cake stall and these cakes received numerous compliments and sold really quickly. I've also made a large one for my son's Birthday party and surrounded it with normal cupcakes which looked delightful.
My only slight teething trouble was with quantities. I found that 1.5 times the normal cake quantity for most Nigella recipes adequately filled the tin. I left 1 horizontal "ring" (about 1 inch) of tin empty to allow for rising and this seemed to work fine.
Highly recommended, fun product.
