Baking a cake can be a lot of work, and if you only want something small, it almost doesn’t seem worth it.
Whether you’re trying to come up with a creative idea for a child’s birthday or just have a sweet tooth yourself, it’s hard to know which recipes are the best.
Mom and Instructables user HollyMann was recently tasked with taking a few cakes to her son’s school, so she decided to try out a new technique using tin cans. It sounds strange, but the outcome is absolutely magical. All you need to get started is one can for each layer of cake you want to bake.
First, she says to clean the tin cans and remove all labels. Then use plastic wrap to smear Crisco on the insides. Make sure to be careful during this step! The cans have sharp edges.
Next, pour in a tablespoon of flour and turn the can until it is entirely coated. Remove any excess.
Make the cake batter, either with a mix or from scratch. Then, decide how many layers you’d like and split the batter up into that many bowls.
