I hear all around people baking in cans and shoe boxes. But what are some other odd cake pans others have used? icon_smile.gif

My mom baked each of her kids' 1st birthday cake in a 5 in. diameter Crisco can that she had cut down to about 2 in. high. We each had our "own" cake to smear everywhere--oops, I meant "to eat"!!! (Gosh, did I just tell my age? icon_redface.gificon_razz.gificon_lol.gif The cans are all cardboard now!)

We've still got that "pan" & I've even used it to bake the top layer on one of my parents' anniversary cakes. icon_biggrin.gif

Someone told me to use a tuna can for tiny little tiers. LOL

How long would you bake cakes in tuna cans? Like cupcakes? icon_confused.gif

Got me....I haven't tried it, but it would certainly be similar...I'd just watch them like a hawk! LOL

Bakersofcakes.........when you use the tuna cans....it is almost the same temp and timing of a muffin...I make banana bread and large muffins in the tuna cans...they are also great for any leftover cake batter.
Hope this helps

I walked in on my grandmother who was baking..in her underwear. I thought that was a pretty odd thing....to bake in.

It also scarred me for life.

OMG, Dale!!!!! That is the most hilarious thing. At least it didn't scar you from baking.
