Ridges in cake from the tin (1 Viewer)

Hi Janey

I hope you don’t mind me pointing this out, but I have a little advice for you, if I may. 😊 After looking at one of your cake pics again, I can see the very faint ridgeline from your tin when they have been removed.

I had trouble with this with my old tins, (as you can see on my cake pic below), so I started to replace them with new PME tins over time.

They aren’t expensive (the PME ones, that is) but give the exterior of the cake a much cleaner edge to work with and seeing as you use buttercream for yours, it would make your cakes even more flawless.

I have attached a picture below to show the difference between the tins and thought it might be helpful to you, especially with all the cakes you make for people.

You do such a lovely job with them that I thought the pic may be of use to you should you wish to trade in your tins in the future.

Anyway, I hope this has been helpful to you and good luck with the cake.

I’m sure it will be amazing.

Best wishes

Hi, I don't mind at all, thank you for the advice, I do cut my tops off tho so it doesn't effect the look so that's good but I will definitely look into those tins for future.

They are FABULOUS tins, but please note If you do buy them, NEVER put them in the Dishwasher like I did. :eyeroll:
If you do, you'll strip the coating off them, so always ensure you hand wash them.

For best results when you've baked in them, wash them in hot soapy water, rinse them and then let them dry off in your cooling oven. It dries them quicker and prolongs the life of the tin.
