thank you for the kind offer, I think I will try it with the bottomless tins.

You want me to send mine? It worked brilliantly with plain sponge

thanks all!
I'm planning to do a carrot cake, so it's quite gloopy and not too liquid.
I guess I will have o do a trial run. wink
the other dc want's a snake hmm

Alternatively you could make a rectangle cake and then shape a minnie mouse shape out of it post baking

It sounds like it is what is called a "Cake Frame". No good for liquid batters like Victoria Sponge (or many American recipes) but good for thick fruit cakes and could be OK for Madeira, but not certain.

That's the sort of tin I would use for a cheesecake!
Foil underneath should work but a tray underneath might be a idea too grin

Ooh thats a good idea coco
Do let me know about the tin. I don't need it

I had number 1 like that for dd first birthday, the trick is to put foil underneath and kind of roll it underneath around the tin

It did leak a bit but not massively

I would guess you place baking paper on a heavy baking tray then place the shape on top. You could always line the shape but just greasing should work. It shouldn't leak as long as they lay flat together.

Yes is the edge sharp?
I have a brilliant minnie mouse cake tin btw happy to send it to you

Are you sure it's for baking in? Sounds like its to be used for cutting an already baked cake

Maybe you are supposed to bake a large square cake and use these as a cutter?

no 'lip' or similar. looks different to the lose bottomed ones I know.
I only have spring tins myself.
maybe have to go and get different sizes then...

How weird
Does it look like they should have loose bottom s which weren't provided

mousmous Fri 11-Oct-13 10:30:00

no lose bottoms. surface is smooth, a bit like cookie cutters, just bigger.

SPBisResisting Fri 11-Oct-13 10:27:49

Surely they must have loose bottom s

mousmous Fri 11-Oct-13 10:26:47

have been given a few tins by a friend as want to do a minnie mouse cake for dc birthday...
they don't have bottoms confused

will the dough not just leak through?
