Special Cake Pans
Special cake pans can meet the needs of any chef. Whether it is a round cake,
a square cake or one in the shape of your favorite cartoon character, baking a
cake can be very fun and very successful if you select the correct cake pan.
Shaped cake pans: You may think that a plain square or circle cake pan is not
a very interesting choice. In fact, most extravagant wedding cakes and store
bought cakes are made using only a square or circle. When it comes to using
these traditional shapes it is all in the decorating. You can have the most
exciting scenes created on a square cake. You could even find a heart for
Valentine’s Day or a four-leaf clover for St. Patrick’s day.
When using a shaped cake pan here are some tips to follow. When greasing your
cake pan, it is a good idea to stay away from butter. The butter actually may
even make your cake stick whereas using shortening or a cooking spray will
prevent this from happening. The cake pan should not touch either side of the
oven to ensure proper heat distribution throughout. You can remove air bubbles
from the batter by banging your cake pan on the counter firmly. Do not bang too
hard as you may dent the cake pan, just hard enough to release the air bubbles
will do fine.

the cake from the pan. These cake pans are the number one choice for
