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
Hi, me again.
Can anyone give me any advice??.... Anyone???
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.
So yeh basically i just baked the cake and covered it no filling, all i can help you out on is the recipes if you need them. These are for the larger dolly varden tin:
This is the one i used:
.....And here is how tall my doll turned out with this recipe:
Below is another one i found just now but havn't tried:
You can choose which ever recipe looks best to you, hope that helps in someway if that's what you were looking for lol
Thanks Elise for your help. Very much appreciated.
