Need cake molds

IndyGirl Jan 28, 2007 11:15 AM

I want to make this recipe for V-day:

However, I don't know where to get the cake molds used in the recipe. Any ideas? Cheaper=better, if possible. Thanks!

    Go to Home Depot and get PVC pipes cut to the right length. Or, even cheaper, use a can with both ends cut off.

      awesome :) thanks for the ideas!I would prefer a can with no ridges, though, since that would seem to mess with the look of the cake. I will consider the pvc pipe, though.

      Chowser, I agree with the PVC pipe section, but lining it with parchment or cellophane will facilitate the unmolding.

        The recipe didn't look like it would be difficult to unmold or I'd have suggested that, too. But, lining the tin can with parchment would help with the ridges on the can.
