How do I give away a cheesecake without my springform pan?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I need to make a cake in a springform pan. It is a cheesecake with pudding on top, and a crust on the bottom and sides. My question is, how do I put it on another plate once it is made? Can I transfer it off my springform pan somehow without ruining the cake?

I line the bottom of the pan with a parchment round and once it has set up...I slide a thin spatula underneath the parchment to loosen it and then carefully slide it over to a cake board

I bake the cake in the springform pan with a cardboard circle instead of the metal bottom. When it's chilled, just remove the springform sides and you're all set.

cardboard burns, your not afraid of it catching fire?

I loosen the springform side just to move it up about 1/2 inch and re-tighten, carefully run a knife along the bottom to loosen it and if it's a large cheesecake, slide a cake lifter underneath to transfer it to a cardboard. If it's a small cake, I just lift it to move it.

I bake cheesecakes and give them away all the time....all I do is turn the bottom of the springform pan over, place a grease-proof cardboard round in it and bake as usual. Turns out perfect everytime, then all I have to do is slide it off onto a plastic cheesecake container. Hope this helps!

Magic Line has pans with a removable bottom (kind of like a tart pan) So instead of the sides coming off, you just push the bottom up and out. You could line it with parchment to help it slide off the bottom piece.

the cardboard won't burn, I used to work in a big grocery bakery and all our sheetcakes, brownies and cinnamon rolls were baked in disposable cardboard "pans"- I would put a circle of parchment on the cardboard though and if your worried about the bottom just set it on a small sheet of foil in the oven.

I leave the original bottom of the pan in and place a cardboard round on top of it.

Note on this site:

To reuse the pan before the cake is all eaten, start by lining the inside base plate with parchment paper, so that you can slide the cake off the metal plate. Or replace the metal base with a parchment-lined piece of cardboard of the same size, and you can give away the cake and keep the base.

Now a paper cup with a little footed bottom --that extra paper will burn. I daresay if the cup is waxed that will burn off too. So don't necessarily try this at home.



I was deprived from Mr Wizard when I was young and I have no memory of science class! lolol

When I make my cheesecakes I usually use my cake pans I don't use a springform and I usually sit that in a pan of water in the oven. When done and it has cooled for few hours in fridge I sit it in hot water few seconds and it comes out nice and easy. icon_smile.gif HTH's

as k8memphis noted whatever is in the paper (or on it) has to evaporate (or burn up) before the cardboard will. Same concept that people use wax paper to line their cake pans, its completely covered with cake so the wax paper won't burn up.
Or microwaving the metal tips in water (with 1" of water over the top) to clean them, since they're covered with water they won't spark.... unless the water above them evaporates and exposes the metal.

Just providing some more examples icon_smile.gif

You never forgot to take the cardboard off of the bottom of a frozen pizza and baked the whole thing in the oven? Uh ... happens at our house more often than I care to admit! icon_redface.gif

And as mentioned above, there is a whole line of paper and cardboard baking pans available for the "to go" side of the baking business!
