Has anyone baked cakes in a tin can? Any advice? I need to make turrets for my daughters castel cake and the only thing I could think of was baking them in a tin can. I am doing that in addition to the wilton castle kit.

Thanks for your help!

Do they HAVE to be made of cake? Most people use Rice Krispies, or just use paper towel cardboards and cover them in fondant...

I use ice cream cones for turrets. One turned upside-down and then another one on top of that one right-side up.

And I do use tin cans--tuna cans--for making my mini taco cakes.

I bake cakes in wide mouth Mason jars every X-mas for gifts. They slide right out when cooled! There are lots of recipes on line for "cakes in a jar". Maybe you could bake in the smaller jelly size?
