I know that structure issues often prohibit a particular cake from being baked in a ‘regular’ cake pan (unless using a flower nail or core) and require that it be baked in a fluted tube pan.
Would this still hold true if the pan were considerably smaller—say, a 7” round pan? Of course, 7” is still a greater distance than the 4” (or so) across a tube pan, but it’s so much shallower.
Picked two up at Sur La Table’s 40% off sale and wondered if I could make cakes designed for savarin rings and bundts in it (scaled down, naturally).
Thanks for any thoughts!
