post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi. I saw a cake pan once on the internet and can't find it anymore. It is used to make little squares like checkered affect in the cake, so you can use white and choclate in the cake.
I don't think I am expalining it well but does anyone know what Iam talking aobut? If so what is called and where can I find one.
thanks

Hi!

It's called a checkboard cake pan....I've attached a link for you from amazon. For price you just type in a search "checkerboard cake pan" and several will come up!

Hope this helps!

Peggy

I have one of these, and I love it. It's so fun to watch people's expressions when they cut the cake and see the pattern for the first time! Plus, you can get really creative with your colors if you start out with a plain white cake mix. I've made green/white for St Pat's Day, pink/purple for daughter's bday, white/lemon for MIL's bday. Enjoy!!

You can do that without a special pan. If your cake mix is a thicker one, not real runny you can put the two flavors in large pipng bags and pipe the rings alternating the colors. You need three pans the same size. So if you were doing white and choc. two pans will be white, choc, white and one would be choc, white, choc, or visa versa.

Hope this helps

ntertayneme,
The pan is pretty easy to use. The only part that threw me off the first time is that you need to have both batters ready to go at the same time before you pour into the pans. Other than that, the directions are easy to follow, and it works out nicely. I think you should get it, they make those little quickee cakes so much more interesting. icon_smile.gif

Flav, have you tried the insert in a regular pan? Just wondering if it would work.

I have one and the inset thing that you use is plastic.....The recipe that came on the box is really good, but it's so thick that it was hard to fill in the different rings.....you need a recipe that flows pretty good but the end result is so cool!

Hi I thought that I would add to this. I also make checkerboard cakes out of rectangle and square pans too. all you have to do is take and make your own inserts out of card board wrapped in seran wrap and sprayed with cooking spray (allows for easy removal) If you make a square you make a square out of the cardboard tape it together at the tops and then make smaller ones to go inside. then all you have to do is make two or three cakes with the alternating colors...two pans would be color x,y,x and one pan would be color y,x,y the one pan that is different would go in the middle of course. You can do any colors you want with a white cake or you can even do flavors like strawberry and chocolate etc...hope this helps you out and if you have any questions pm me!
