Stupid baking question: can I use a springform pan for a regular cake?
Some of you might remember my asking about ideas for a groom’s cake back in January. Well, I’ve decided to make a cylindrical cake in the shape of a stick of dynamite.
My plan is to bake a bunch of small round cakes and stick them together to make a cylinder which will lie on its side. I’ve been unable to find a small enough cake pan (I’m looking for something between 4 and 5 inches in diameter), but I found a 4.5” springform pan.
I’ve only ever seen springform pans used for cheesecakes and frozen desserts – can I use them for straight-up boring cakes, too?
