Is this a good or bad idea? I need to bake a round cake but my oven is broken. Do you think it would work if I put a couple of flower nails in the center?

TIA!!!

I would bake me a cake in there but not one to sell to someone. It might bake a little wonky due to the temperature cycling differently and the heat distribution might not saturate well. It might be ok.

I mean the heating element might toast it too.

On my toaster oven you can use a toast setting or different temperature settings up to 450 degrees. Do you think that would make a difference?

Yes. Don't toast your cake.

Sorry k8memphis, I should have worded that differently, it made me sound like a dingbat. lol. I mean, do you think it would work if I set is at the temperature the recipe calls for? Do you think it'll toast the cake if it's set on a degree setting?

Oh my soul I'm laughing so hard I'm snorting.

I mean it all depends on your parrticular oven--do it and we'll both know type of thing.

I mean it depends on how close the bottom heating element is to the bottom of the pan and how well the heat circulates.

Honest you won't be able to tell till you try it. I mean I for sure wouldn't try an angel food or anything tempermental like that.

Just be prepared to maybe slice off the bottom if it gets too dark.

I've baked 4" rounds, mini cupcakes and wilton singles pan in my toaster over.

It was okay.

They were just for the family so I didn't really pay attention to how well they came out.

I just baked two of my 8" rounds I need and they came out great! I put two flower nails in the center and baked them one at a time and I am very pleased with how they came out!!!

Thanks!

My uncle, who bakes all the time, only uses his toaster oven.
Since he moved into his house he's never even used his stoves' oven. He does pies, cakes, muffins an such in there.

Glad it worked out for ya!! thumbs_up.gif

My mom is a snowbird and lives in a 5th wheel. She has a gas oven but prefers to use her toaster oven for baking. She uses it for everything and likes how stuff turns out so apparently it isn't a problem. Mines a convection toaster oven so the fan circulates the heat around and keeps stuff from burning.
