Hired a metal '6' cake tin. It has no bottom. I put ingredients in, put it on top of grease proof paper on cake tray and my mixture is currently leaking out all over the oven. Any ideas how to salvage?
I don't know if you can salvage it, sorry. If you need to do it again, you wrap two layers of foil around the bottom of the tin, then place it on a very sturdy tray and tighten the foil around the tin - sort of rolling it and forcing it up a bit around the shape of the tin - until you have a seal. It's a proper faff, but the reason they don't have a bottom is you wouldn't be able to get it out. Why they can't make lose bottomed ones I don't know. Icing a '3' was enough to make me vow never to use them again <bitter>
