I need to replace an odd shaped cake tin - any idea what it's called if I describe it - badly?

It is round, with a deeper bit round the edge so when it is turned out I can fill the middle bit with fruit & quick-jel & cream to make a flan

But it must have name - any ideas?

Sorry my

ring mould?

Is this any good?

Fabster Sun 08-Nov-09 17:54:41

Or this?

For making jellies

When I google flan tin I get the sort with the fluted edges

Those just aren't it

There is cake all under the fruit & a little wall of cake round the edge

Have you checked my suggestions?

They had (as far as I could see) an actual hole in the centre, but I could be wrong

The wall bit was also curved at the top rather than a flat wall bit

If you pour water into it you would start off witha moat & eventually get a lake

Thanks btw - I know I'm not doing this very well

one of these? flan tin

If you flipped CheeseALarm's tin , you would get the moat to lake effect. But what amount of grease would you have to drop into the moat bit to extract the sponge walls intact I wonder?

That is very nearly the right shape

Now I just need a silicon or non-stick one

'Indented flan tin' - not what I would have called it

Katymac Sun 08-Nov-09 18:26:05

Catinthehat - That is why silicon or nonstick blush mine never comes out anymore

flan tin GOLD

I found this one - it is hard to choose

Fabster Sun 08-Nov-09 18:44:51

Can you put a pic on your profile of what you are trying to replace?

Katymac Sun 08-Nov-09 18:52:59

I'll get the loose bottom one I found - once I knew what to look for

Thanks everyone - MN triumphed again grin
