I found this tin (well, the big one only) in the bargain corner in Ikea during a visit well a couple of years ago and thought it would make a great addition to my baking collection and be my first exciting shaped tin.
It's bright red on the outside and has a grey non-stick inside. As I don't trust non stick cake tins from years of stuck cakes, I always cut out a horse shaped lining when I use this tin, just to be sure. Once baked, the sides of the cake come away easily and the cake comes straight out of the tin which is good, including the small ears!
I usually make a 6oz cake (6oz flour, sugar and butter + 3 eggs) to go in the tin which rises up loads in the middle and is probably a bit too much, but I really like having a big dome on my cakes. The size of the cake easily feeds a room full of guests at a party and it definitely makes your cake stand out due to it's unusual shape. I've used the tin a few times now and it looks really wonderful covered in icing with a brightly coloured saddle and cocolate sprikles mane.
It's really easy to clean after use adn the non stick coating hasn't started to wear at all after several uses.
Overall it's a great tin to help make a more unusual cake which is bound to wow your guests!
I'm a sucker for all kinds of weird and wacky shaped baking tins. I'm always baking and so I have accumulated lots and lots of different baking tins over the years. I spotted this set of two Swedish Dala horse shaped baking tins on offer in Ikea a while ago, and so naturally I bought them to add to my collection.
This set of two Ikea Drommar Swedish Dala horse shaped baking tins retails currently for £7.19. When I purchased the set a few months ago however it was on offer for Ikea family members, and so it only cost me £2.99.
The baking tins match the rest of the Drommar bakeware range, they have a shiny red exterior, and a dark grey non stick Teflon coated interior. I'm always dubious as to whether non stick baking tins actually work, especially the shaped tins, and as such I always take extra precautions. Each time I've used these tins I've always brushed the interior with a small amount of melted butter, then shook some flour in over the melted butter, and then poured in my cake batter. I've never had any problems with the cakes sticking in these tins using them in this way. The finished cakes always release out really easily, I just slide a plastic or rubber pallette knife in around the edges to loosen the cakes, and then I just turn the baking tin upside down and gently shake the finished cake out.
The baking tins do state that they are hand wash only, however I have put them in the dishwasher, along with the other items in the Drommar range that I own, and they have all been absolutely fine.
You get two different sizes of baking tins in the set, a larger Swedish Dala horse, and a smaller one. The two horses are each facing in different directions. I find that a typical cake mix recipe will fill both of the tins.
I've used these baking tins quite a lot, they are quite an unusual shape, and as such create quite a talking point. They seem to be fairly decent quality, and look like they will last for quite a while.
This is a set of two baking tins, a horse and foal. They are a bright red on the outside, with a grey teflon coating inside. The sizes are 70ml and 7.5ml, measured in volume rather than by diameter because they're not a regular shape. The smaller tin holds the equivalent of two fairy cakes.
I've not had good experiences of nonstick in the past, so tend to avoid them if I can, but these were too cute to turn up, and at £6.99 for the two, I felt it was worth the money..I'm glad to say that, with only the lightest brush of oil, my cakes turned out perfectly as recognisable horses. The bottom was stable enough to ice, too, nothing stuck to the pan at all. They were super easy to clean, too, although they can't go in the dishwasher.
Each tin is shallow, about the depth of a sandwich tin. They can be used for sandwiches or are perfect for traybakes, such as gingerbread. I think they might work well fr tarts, as the sides are well deifined, but I haven't tried that yet.
