Cake tin tips #1
Another birthday passed, and thanks to a tip I read in a star cake tin, I finally managed to use the cake recipe on the back of the Milk, Soya and Egg free diet sheet in a fancy tin (previously only managed to get muffin recipe out of this tin in one piece). TIP: Brush cake tins with melted white vegetable fat (Trex, Cookeen) and dust with flour for smooth release.
No more wet egg free cake mixes sticking to greaseproof paper lined tins! Also, if you find muffins and cupcakes stick to paper liners, try reusable silicon ones instead.
The chocolate cake uses same basic recipe, with 1 cup of Mortimer Chocolate powder (available in Waitrose in Stortford and Saffron Walden or http://www.mortimerchocolate.co.uk/index.htm) added. The other carriages use same recipe, but with 2 small mashed bananas. Decorated with assorted sweets and gel glitter icing.
