Can I use foil flan cases like these for baking sponge cake? I have 2 proper cake tins but can't be arsed doing it 3 lots.

What do you think?

not sure how easily the cake will come out afterwards - suspect the mixture will work its way into the crinkled edge.

Also, are the edges vertical or sloped? if sloped, will the cake stack OK if required?

I used similar to do my daughters cake. Mainly to save time, as I only had one tin the right size.

I lightly oiled them, including the sides and put a disc of non stick paper in the base.

Cakes came out perfectly, didn't stick at all. And stacked nicely, there was a slight slope to the edges but I found it ok, you could always trim them straight if you wanted too.
