Using Decorated Cookie Tins For Baking
Can one bake cakes in those pretty and colorful decorated aluminium cookie tins , you know, the ones that appear on supermarket shelves during Christmas *especially the butter cookies containers) and other holidays? Would the coating inside be an issue if I were to line it beforehand?
No, those are not designed or constructed to be used as a baking dish -- the paints will burn off, the interior coating will melt (no idea of it's toxic, but it can't be good!) -- and you could even melt the material used to weld the metal together.
Keep your finished goodies in them, but don't bake in them.
