I bought two 6" and two 10" locally made square cake tins. Made my usual red velvet cake batter and was going to take a run on the treadmill while the cakes were in the oven timed. Decided to put around the kitchen and mop the floor again. Then I see a bright orange flash in the oven. My oven doesn't have a light so I couldn't see what else may have been stirring up in there. Another flash. Open oven and a flash of fire from DRIPPING BATTER FROM THE DARN LOCALLY MADE CAKE TINS! I don't even have a fire extinguisher in case it was worse. Had to turn off the oven and main switch and keep the oven open. Shoved in a baking tray on the bottom rack to catch the leaking batter. Can't believe this ish. Now I am wondering if I am going to have a sunk cake because of the loss of heat only 2 mins into baking. How can someone make a pan that is so badly soldered. I paid $9US (equivalent) for the 6" square pan and $13 US (equivalent to my currency) for the 10" square cake pans. I really didn't even notice there was bad soldering and I don't even have liability insurance for this kind of drama!!!
