Just curious if someone has seen or could tell me what the cake pans are. They are 3 nesting walnut shaped cake pans with tops and bottoms that slide into one another. Old pans with an England stamp on them. Thanks for the help!
which cake pans? is there a link?
I stand to possibly be corrected by British CC members, but these are not cake pans, they are used for steamed puddings which are very popular in the UK.
Wow! Thanks guys, that link was very helpful. These seem to be in excellent shape, and they will make an excellent addition to my kitchen collection
ice cream or jello is what i thought when i saw it too. Martha Stewart has a few different shapes. Seent hem on her show.
Wow. Blast from the past. My grandmother used these.
DeMontsoreau is spot on. They're moulds used to make steamed pudding. (Jello moulds are different).
You lock the lid in, place it in a bain marie (water bath) and use the ring to lift it up and out.
They're still made and used in baking today.
