Trying not to panic..my cake pan is touching the wall - Page 3

post #31 of 53
OMG! Half round 16 and 18 inch pans?? Genius!! I never even thought of this! My freezer is so small (side by side refrigerator)...nothing that large could ever fit...but half rounds?? A whole new world has just opened it's freezer doors! icon_lol.gif

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

....good info on the 1/2 circles ........

I'd be careful using `1/2 rounds. Yrs ago I spent big bucks to have both 16 and 18" 1/2 rounds - Magic Line (a top brand in those days long before Fat Daddio) and I had nothing but trouble. The 2 halves did not make a round - it was more of an oval. I ended up having to make another sq cake to cut into stripes, putting a 1" strip between the two halves icon_sad.gif

I have a half-round 18" pan, it's great.

I've propped the door of the oven open and turned it off before if the cake wasn't done and I needed to go out. That works as long as you can figure that the oven will cool down as the cake finishes baking. You have to time it right.

I'm thinking that at least half of this thread is nothing more than BS, if not more. This just has to be a joke. I'd question if it was trolling but I know better since everyone has been members for a while. Maybe I should just open my eyes to the craziness and try some of these things mentioned so I can go down in flames with an epic fail.

I don't know what to say to that...everything that I put is stuff that I've done and have been successful with, so if it doesn't work for you then I don't know what to tell you.

well......I follow costumeczars' blog, she is really insightful, quite helpful and I don't think she would put a bunch of bull on here just for s.... and giggles. This has been an enjoyable thread. No one's been bashing each other. LOL

I have a Fat Daddio pan my DH bought that doesn't fit my oven and I don't have the heart to hurt his feelings. Geez, he surprised me. Who know? He had no idea what he was buying. So I just may give these suggestions a whirl. It's better than that pan sitting there getting dusty.

Thanks CCer's.

That's a pretty awesome husband you've got there....and it's sweet of you to not tell him it doesn't fit in your oven. icon_smile.gif

Thanks, he knows it doesn't fit 'cause he watched me slide it in. The door lacks about 1/4 inch of shutting. He was wondering if he took the lip off of the pan if that would take care of it. Which I suppose it would. But then I would be concerned about a rough edge on the pan and getting a finger or two sliced. He doesn't have the proper weilding tools. Not really worth it. IMO. But I have a great set of square Fat Daddio pans!

Well, it came out....a bit lopsided.
I really should have turned the pan half way though the cooking if I'd had had my wits about me.

It's a lovely 3 inches on one side and just under 2 on the other...man, that is a lot of wasted cake when I level on Saturday.
Well, not wasted. I do have a lot of little ones that are already asking for some cake scraps. Patience, my children, patience.

My husband offered to 'trim' the edge off my brand spanking new Fat Daddio and I declined his offer. He then walked to my oven, pulled out my rack and took it to the garage. He emerged three minutes later with it minus the back angle...he flattened it. icon_lol.gif

I watched him take my empty pan and do a complete clearance test.
I'm good...no more touching anything. icon_biggrin.gif

Here's hoping my the layer I cook tonight will be flatty-flat flat.

Wait, so the rack had a lip at the back and it was up on an angle to begin with? Well, that WILL make it uneven, as you found out the hard way, Propping them up only works when they're pretty much all set. Now that it's a flat rack that won't be a concern, though.

Well, thank you! Where should I send your check? icon_wink.gif

And don't put electrical cords inside an oven. They can melt.
