Hi to all,
I have done a search on baking in a dollyvarden tin but have come up with nothing.
I was wondering if anyone can give me any advice on baking in one- eg how many cups of cake mixture etc. Also how do I bake so the cake is moist as it is thinner on the bottom so the cake doesn't dry out. And lastly d you cut and fill the cake.
Any advice would be appreciated as I I want to make a ckae for my neices birthday. TIA

I made one once just for a practice and i had a bit of trouble getting it to cook to the height of the tin and was just a bit shorter but it was still tall enough to what i wanted in the end.

I can give you the recipe i used if u like if i can find it that is specifically for a dolly varden tin and you might have more luck with it. It is a good idea to put a little circle of baking paper at the narrow bottom end of the tin so it doesn't stick and coat the sides with a bit of flour before you put the mixture in.
