A new cake tin to play with.

What fun. I adore trying out new things. Will it work well? Will it stick? Will it burn? Which recipe?
The tin was got at a local market and I really thought 'cos it wasn't a Wilton, that I would have all sorts of problems. I did. But it wasn't the tins fault but mine.
Not wanting to spend lotsa money on ingreds as I knew it would fail, I went to the supermarket and got 3 butter cake mixes (shock, horror) for 69c each,only. I put in some red food colouring and some strawberry flavouring, so as to have a pink rose when turned out.
Filled the tin to half way with the cake mix and put in oven. 10 minutes later, the cake was overflowing in the oven, down the centre funnel, through the shelves and on to the bottom of oven. Quick thinking saved the smoke alarm going off. I shoved a tray under the cake tin, and stood back and prayed. After taking battery out of smoke alarm.
This is the end result. A good looking cake that tastes delightful. And yes it was quite pink in the middle when cut.
Will I do it again? YES, but less mix in next time and I will try a choc cake mix and sprinkle gold dust on when cooked.

That cake looks so beautiful! Lovely shape and I love the tinge of pink. A chocolate version sounds good too... :)

I LOVE cake pans! Your rose pan is gorgeous! Too bad about having to clean up the cake overflow, but your quick action sure saved a lot of work!
