I mistakenly ordered this

thinking that it was bread loaf sized, but it’s very tiny.  Has anyone tried such a thing for cupcakes?

I haven’t seen them before, but they look like they’d be great for gifts.  They look about the right size for financiers- maybe the cocoa nib ones?  Please take a pic of what you make with them.  smile

I think pound cake would work well too—perhaps one of the mini ones from the new book. The vanilla bean one is very good.

Those are very cool. I searched on Panibois and found Technobake. They sell many sizes of these things. Have you baked in them before?

Well, no promises.  None of my stuff is ever as pretty as the stuff you people make.  :-(

I don’t find pound cake very popular at work.  Of course they LIKE pound cake, but it doesn’t pull them across the room like chocolate does, so it just sits there.  That said, the Golden Almond Grand Marnier cake seems to have been everyone’s’ favorite.

Nope.  I was going to try them out by baking a bread loaf to give to some friends and thought getting 20 of them for $15 was a good buy.  The size was printed next to the picture, but the picture LOOKED shaped like a full-size load pan, so I never thought to even check the size.  It might actually do well for a cake; surely the wooden pieces don’t get as hot as metal.  Might act like a built-in cake strip.

There’s always the chocolate pound cake with Kahlua syrup and mini chocolate chips.

I have noticed this same annoying tendency.  I have personally banned chocolate cakes for work unless it’s for someone’s birthday. All non-birthday cakes must meet the following requirements (A) not chocolate (unless it’s white) and (B) it must have nuts (unless I know someone in the applicable group is allergic.  Otherwise, I’d never make anything but chocolate cakes!!!  Not that I don’t love them, too, but there’s so much else that’s delicous and beautiful!  For a training meeting I have on Wednesday, I asked the girls to pick from a list of 4 or 5 RHCs, the they were all quite enthusiastic about the Apple Cinnamon Crumb Coffe Cake.

One thing I’ve noted about Rose’s cakes (“oh, no, she’s saying it again” they sigh) is (1) I can bake them all in small loaf pans and (2) (okay, two thing’s I’ve noticed, then…) they’re all great unsyruped and unfrosted.  I always make a little extra batter and bake it in little bread pans to have plain, unadorned slices for the freezer and snacking, and they are just unspeakably delicous (and cute—and they make that wonderful soft top crust concentration, which I can’t really explain, but is so heavenly on bread-shapead cakes).

So, all that is the long way of saying you can pick anything!  And if you pick chocolate, the Devil’s Food Cake is really awesome!

I agree - mini pound cakes in the little wooden French baskets - ‘tres chic’ for little gifts and/favors.. smile
