Just wondering if anyone has tried this before and if so how did it turn out.

I need to make a cake in the shape of an artist's pallette. I was thinking of using aluminun foil to curve the corners of a 9 x 13 pan so that I don't have to carve off any of the cake and then putting wads of foil in the unused spaces to keep the curves standing during baking. Will this work? Any suggestions?

Yep! You sure can. Make sure you grease the foil. Build up your foil to at least the height of your pan.

Rather than using wads of foil to prop it up, I would shape one solid wad of foil so it fits in the corner with a rounded front. Then press the foil 'pan' against that.
