Its DH's birthday party tomorrow and I promised him ill bake him a nice big red velvet cake.
Anyways we're having about 30 people come, so i want the cake to stratch - it's gonna have 2 layers with the cream cheese icing in the middle as well as all around it. I'm thinking doing a rectangle shaped cake and ill also make some additional cup cakes to go around it so there is enough cake.
I can't find a bloody rectangle cake tin anywhere! Just been out running around 4 different places in my area. I give up. I have come home to see what I have here and i have a rectangle slice tray!
Will that work??? Or turn out to be a disaster??
I also have the option to hire a massive cake tin from a shop if this slice tray wont work.

Can you bake a cake in a rectangle slice tray???? Help!

I have used a slice pan. Either don't fill it to much or line with folded over aluminium foil to extend the sides. That way it won't overflow.
Not sure if you need help with cooking times. From memory the old women's weekly birthday cake book (train on cover) had cooking times for all different tin sizes on the first few pages.

I dont see why not. Plenty of people do it, just dont bake it too long or it will be dry or burnt.

A slice tray will be much shallower than a cake tin, so just don't over fill and cook in a couple of trays and not for too long. Then you can just sandwich 2 cakes together, instead of having to cut 1 in half.

If you are going to do two layers anyway can you just use the tray you have, halve the mixture and bake each cake separately? Then you don't have to worry about slicing it make the layers? I wouldn't stress about the tray. I always just use what I have and just watch it like a hawk when it's on the oven. GL, I'm sure it will be beautiful! x

You can use a solid cardboard box lined a couple times with baking paper if you needed to. I have done that before.
