Ok, I've googled "cake cutters" and "round cake cutters" trying to find these things. I saw the girls of Cake Alchemy using them the other day, where they cut their rounds from sheet cake pans, using tall round cutters, same size as cake pans, but no they didn't have bottoms to them, and they were very tall. Did all the filling inside the cutter thing, and when they unmolded the cake, dang! Perfectly seamless and straight sides.
I'm kind of intrigued. Looks like it would waste cake, but I'm up for short term freezing for tastings now that I got a good vacuum sealer.
Anyone else do this?
And what are they called, and where the heck do you find them??
Thanks for any help!
Sorry I haven't seen anything like that. But I am interested in knowing more about the cutters.
maybe it's just a tin can with top and bottom taken off with one of those can openers than don't leave sharp edges? It just might be that simple. Like the size of shortening can.
Search for cake rings. They're not just handy for cutting cake layers, you can also assemble the cake inside the ring (very handy for mousse cakes, charlotte russe adn things like that with a very soft filling that needs to set overnight).
You could make your own out of 6" flashing. It's sold by the roll at Home Depot or Lowes.
I have tin cans (with upper edge completely removed) in many different sizes.(from 1" to 8") Check your grocery store or pantry for cans. You can also use hard plastic containers if they have straight sides.
Pink, yes!! That's it, thank you! I figured it wasn't really for cutting, but more for assembly, no? Thank you, on the hunt now.
And thanks everyone, that's a lot of help!
Check our Chef Rubber in Vegas.... this page shows what is available but they are expensive. http://shopchefrubber.com/search.php?mode=search&page=1
They did a demo at the Bakery Show a couple years ago building the finished cake inside the rings.
YES YES... I saw the show and paused the TV.. called my husband in and he (home improvement expert) went to the garage and made me several different sizes (he felt involved.. so I let him go at it... LOL) not sure what he used exactly .... yes - flashing ! (just yelled at him and asked.. LOL)
I used them for assembling the cake - it was so nice to put the cake together and no slipping and sliding.... Sweet Deal !!
Love it.. Love it..Love it
I had an instructor who would bake her cakes and make sure one of the pans was taller, 3 inch I think, and then she would just assemble the cake in the tallest pan, invert, and walaa! Even and no slippage.
I saw that episode too, and would like to use the cake tubes as well. What size sheet cake pans can you get, and how much batter, how long to bake, etc? The pan they had looked really big. The biggest pan I use is the 12" x 18". Help with this please.
Found the answer.
I am on the edge of my seat.. what did you find ?
Fill 1/2 full, bake about 12-15 mins. Not sure if right, but will be testing soon. If anyone else wants to chime in , I would like to hear
Okay.. sounds good.. and any "not used" cake in the circle cut outs - could make cake balls!?
That is what I thought, too. Just the amount of time saved w/ the less cooking time and cooling time is worth it. I figure I usually have to level top, and "waste" that cake anyway. Also, easier to store sheet pans.
KammKakes- Did your husband use a rivet gun or what to make the rings out of flashing? Were the rings to wobbly when you pushed down on them? Any tips would be appreciated.
