    Default Cake tin question

    I'm wanting to make a number 3 cake for this Sunday but can't find a large ring tin. The only one I can find for a reasonable price is a 20cm one that was really shallow. All the others where $30 odd, which I might just as well buy a cake. Has anyone come up with and alternative to using ring tins? I saw on the net that people suggested putting a greased empty can in the centre of a large round pan. Does anyone know if this would work?

    To be honest I don't bother with ring tins. I just use a regular cake tin (a bit shallower than a ring tin) and test the cooking time. Works out just fine.

    Just bake a round cake and cut the middle out with a glass after it's cooked.

    I've seen the number cake tin sets at Big W. I can't recall how much they were, but don't think they were that expensive.

    Otherwise as Elijah's mum suggested, most specialty baking stores hire tins out. Our local one does it for $5.

    I was just thinking - what did I do?...then I remembered. Just used two round cakes, took a little off an edge of both cakes and joined them together, iced them as a whole using ganache as a bit of builder's bog to make everything flat and even, then covered with fondant icing (coloured) used black fondant icing to make road as the number 3 with flags, cars on top, etc and did some other bits and bobs using the icing for the country-side, "rocks" around the base. Used my large chopping board to put them on.
