I love CC. I am very glad I found Ya'll!
Well while here I have learned that the reason my cakes are falling is due to my Avacado Green oven. Yes it is that old! and it does not match my Empire Red KA! So until I get the new oven, I would like to know if anyone has tried to bake a cake in their toaster oven? OMG I am ROFL as I type this. Beats crying.
Please any and all ideas are welcome!
Happy Mothers Day!
you can definitely bake a cake in there.......just make sure you don't try to make too big of a cake LOL also, if you can you may want to lower your rack to allow for the cake rising.
Our toaster oven came with an insert sheet that had pan sets that you could buy (from the manufacturer of course) to bake in. You would have to have pans that fit in it, and make sure the cake didn't rise too high and touvh the heating elements.
LOL - if you can bake cakes in an EasyBake Oven w/ a lightbulb - i'm sure the toaster would work!
When my oven died, I had to bake a cake in my toaster oven. It's the Blues Clues tiered cake in my pictures. I had to bake all six layers separately and it took FOREVER! I do have a fairly large toaster oven. The kind that you can bake a frozen pizza in. What I did was lower the temperature to 325 and I also had to put a piece of tin foil loosely over the top of the pan because the heating elements started to burn the top. The foil didn't hurt anything or stop the cakes from rising. I just sprayed it with Pam to make sure the cake didn't stick to the foil.
Good Luck and hope you can get a new oven soon!
Easy bake oven--I didn't think of that
7 6inch rounds would look like a flower for Mothers Day!
I can get through this! I only had to ask CC.
Just keep laughing--Just keep laughing
I bake most of my cakes in my toaster oven. They turn out much better than in my regular oven because my toaster oven has a convection setting that cooks them really nicely. I'm not a professional, mind you, but it works for me. I can bake up to a 12" by 12" in my Suzanne Somers toaster oven. It has a rotisserie attachment, pizza pan, roasting pan, regular rack, and bake, broil, convection, and rotisserie functions and will cook up to 500 degrees Farenheit. I only say all of this because if you are looking to buy one, mine cost about $100 on HSN and it has turned out to be the main oven that my family uses. We only use the big oven if we have to (like for a turkey or something).
Wow! sounds like I would like it, too.
I only have a small B&D, that I bought on clearance from Target $12.00. I like it so I don't have to heat up the house for corn dogs and fish sticks. I have made a roasted chicken (cornish hens) in it, but I just didn't think about a cake.
Since I have discovered the wall oven on the fritz, I just took a look around the kitchen to see what else I could use. Oooohh I could take out the oven and put in another cabinet for cake stuff --yea right. But if I get the slicer/shreader & the juicer attachments for Big Red, then I would have another shelf! Bye-bye food processer, snow cone maker, juice and either the blender or the smoothie machine.
Humm I have to just keep looking, just keep looking.
