Can I put cake batter in a 12 oz. can and bake If so, how long would it need to bake and should I put a flower nail in the bottom? TIA
12 oz. can??? I am confused, what kind of can?
an empty evaporated milk can
My guess is.... maybe a yes??? Im not totally sure. why do you want to bake a cake in a can?
I don't see why not. I've seen posts about "can cakes" quite frequently here. However I don't don't remember if I ever read about flower nails being used....I rather doubt it since the can is so small.
Here's a link to a little question about this on the Wilton forums http://www.wilton.com/forums/messageview.cfm?catid=8&threadid=94973
wow, ive heard of coffee cans but never tried will have to try this thanks for the post.
I've heard about this "can cakes" too but I'm not sure about the baking time, my guess would be the same time as a cupcake or maybe a few minutes more but check with a skewer and let us know please. About the nail I don't think is necesary because the can is small and it's a good heat conductor. Good luck with this!
I've baked in a can before. Be sure you fill it less than half way full or it will overflow and you will have a mess in your oven. Believe me, I know from experience lol! Bake at a low temp (325) and check it after about 15-20 minutes.
Thanks ya'll. ceshell, thank you for the link hollyw567, thanks for the tip I'll let ya'll know how it turns out.
yes you can. i've even seen them done in a coffee cup for cupcakes.
