Sorry forgot to add I haven used pauls recipes in the lakeland cake tins yet, I tend to do a lot of madeira, mud cakes and chocolate fudge tho, all of which bake fine in them

Thank you, are they easy to stack? It says that you don’t have to do any carving to get the topsy turvy look, is that right?

Hi, here’s my feedback!! Cakes cooked beautifully in the tins, but then I thought I’d be clever and make them look sharper by following Paul’s tutorial and started carving – got bit carried away and also didn’t realise that I should have done a madeira recipe for carving – they just looked a mess, so I ended up chucking the lot away and doing an ordinary cake!! Why do some people carve a “well”, I note that Paul doesn’t do that. I might do it again, but just carve a little bit instead of loads of wastage!!

A dense cake like madeira is always best for carving and because madeira gets better for keeping it’s less of a rush to get it decorated. Some people carve a well to form a lip presumably to prevent the next tier moving. Looks good visually but I should think it takes some mastering. Sorry to hear you had problems, hard learning curve which will make you better for it next time. We’ve all been there, me more than most! Good luck for the weekend. xx
