So I was recently given a cake mold to make D20 shaped cakes. My fiancé gave it to me for our anniversary…hmm I wonder if he wanted me to make some cake….
So I tried it out when I had some guests visiting for a few days. I overfilled the molds the first time….it was a volcano of cake oozing out of the sides. I also over-browned just the bottom of the d20…which happened to be the 20. I then baked them at a lower setting for a longer time and the bottom was less brown but the sides were sticky.
I seriously COULD NOT WIN with this cake pan lol. I think I needed a stiffer cake mix or something. You couldn’t even see the numbers imbedded into the cake…except for the 20 on the bottom (go figure). It was a crazy time to bake them.
When I first started up my oven it began smoking… I swear I got smoke inhalation while I was in there. I hadn’t used it for about a month, because it gets to 85 degrees in my kitchen while using the oven during the summer.
Check out my latest video (a little over five minutes), for pictures and video of my progression through this experiment.
I thought about just doing melted chocolate or candy melts, the next time I do it and make candy filled D20 pinatas for our next game. 🙂
What do you guys recommend?
