Cone Shaped Baking Tin? Pukeko Cake

aisis, Nov 16, 2:49am
I am gonna attempt the pukeko cake from Rob Burns book (Kiwiana Party Cakes) and it says to use a cone shaped cake tin? I cant find one so may need to build a pyrimid shape, does anyone have any handy hints??? Has anyone made this yet?? Im a complete novice so any help would be awesome! - Thanks.

Hire a tin?

You could bake it in a large bowl or Pyrex jug, let it cool and cut it to shape, if you cant hire a tin.

A dolly varden tin is what you want.

They are available in New Zealand, however, you will pay close to $60 for one.

Yea try hiring one from your local shop.Other wise just make a few smaller cakes, stack them (icing between each cake to hold it together), then carve the shape you need.

There will be waste, but you will get the correct shape.

Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect!And icing will hide many mistakes

The Lotto shop in Swanson (Just at the back of Henderson / Lincoln Rd area) Hire cake tins for $3 overnight. I use them frequently & the lady there is super nice too! Give them a call to make sure they are have the tin in before you drive down - she will hold it for you for when you need it too. Ask for the Dolly Varden tin - thats the one you need. Good Luck with your cake.
