I have a request from a regular client who wants me to bake a 3D Lamb for her daughter's 1st birthday.The cakepan is really old cast iron.Is there any difference in baking with cast iron I should be aware of...Do I have to use a pound cake recipe?

I really don't like the wilton 3D pans as they never bake out the way you want them too in 3D pans..

I suppose I can bake each half seperate and then level and glue together...

any tips??

Hmm, I don't know. It's been so long since I used even a cast iron skillet that I can't even remember what the heat retention is like. I think cast iron retains heat longer, doesn't it?
