In the Can

Or perhaps not.

Baking tins….. I had such a shock yesterday, I came over all peculiar.
I forgot that I had already bought two flat baking trays when we moved in for the cooker that was already here (and I only used twice). I also have two rather nice sized ceramic dishes which will be ideal for pastas, lasagnes, roasting potatoes, McCheeses or cottage pies.
All I really need is a bun tin for mince pies or small fairy cakes, and two 7″ sponge tins for, well, sponges.
Google image: I’ll post one of my own when I’ve cooked it.

The ones I had before were non stick and had removable bases, so I’d line the bottom with a circle of greaseproof paper and when the cake was cooked, turn it out without it sticking to the sides.

£8.60 each.
I’ll repeat that slowly…….. e i g h t  p o u n d s  and  s i x t y  p e n c e  each.
They are still on the shelf in the shop.
The bun tin was £9.
So is that.

And as for a cake storage tin at £15, well forget it.

Plan B (another one):
We’re off to the market in Boston today for a variety of things, and I know several places where I can get the baking tins I’m after at a sensible price. Also for a couple of pounds I should be able to get a cake storage tin/container.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I LOVE cake pans & have collected them for years, so now, I have a cupboard devoted to them. My favorites are make by Nordic Ware and I have several ‘cupcake’ and bundt pans. The ones you are planning for are much more practical.
