This is my first post as I have just joined the forum. Hello to you all. I hope I have put this question in the right area - apologies if not.
My conversion - I bought Rose’s The Cake Bible a few months ago. It is amazing - for the first time my family ate my cake because they wanted to and not our of duty!! I have been making the All Occasion Downy Yellow Cake, 9 inch size exactly as per The Cake Bible. Rose is fabulous.
I want to do something a bit different for a friend’s birthday cake. I have seen those multi mini cake tins advertised - you know the ones which look like one large square tin but are divided into 16 separate square sections (they also do round noes). I would then ice these individually and put them on a stand…so everyone gets lots of icing! However I’m a bit worried that they may turn out like my old cakes used to…heavy, dry, crusty, uneven tops. At the moment I am using a Silverwood 9” cake tins with Magic Cake Strips and the cakes come out risen and even. However with these individual cakes, I’m not sure if I can use the Magic Cake strips, I suppose I could join two or three Magic Cake Strips together around the whole outer edge of the cake tin…but would this ensure they all baked evenly, even the ones in the middle.
Has anyone tried Rose’s recipes with one of these tins - if so how did they turn out? Any advice re baking times as well. In the 9"cake tins they take 26 mins in my oven at 180C.
Many many thanks if anyone can help…or even direct me to another post on this if they know where it is.
