Does anyone have any experience with using this pan? I just brought it, and it seems according to the instructions that it has to be filled, closed and then baked? It then has to be left in the pan for an hour or until cold?
Any tips welcome!
It's been a while since I used the train pan, but yes, I baked with the two pans closed together. I let the cake cool for a while, but I know it wasn't an hour. Maybe 10 min. The cake came out great. I greased the pans using shortening and flour. Be sure to get in all the little detail areas! Good Luck!
Tie the two pans closed with a cotton string. Make sure it is cotton and not nylon or plastic, those would melt. One side of the pan has a whole in it, this would be the top pan.
About 10 mins out of the oven I'd take off the top of the pan and let it cool for a little bit. Put that side of the pan back on, flip it over and take off the other side and let that cool for a little bit. Then you can remove it from the pan.
Excellent, thanks! I'll use it tomorrow.
Thanks for your advice, I made it and it came out perfectly.
