Cake Support Tip

Martha Stewart Living, October 2004

Using the sturdy removable bottom of a tart pan underneath a cake simplifies the job of transferring it -- whether to a cake stand on your dining-room table or to a box for taking to a friend's home.

    Oh, I thought this was going to be like support when you want cake to make you not want it! Darn!

    I agree with all of you on your thoughts. Good job on your parts. Teamwork is what we all need at times. Your reminders and knowledge is very helpful Thanks!!

    Yes I agree with "ginasews", this will ruin the bottom of the tart pan, and if it's French Tin they could start to rust. Better to use a piece of stiff, clean or covered cardboard or a cake round from your local bakery or cake supply store. You could even use a stiff paper plate (one or two or more if needed just cut down to size. A pizza paddle is also great for transfering stuff.

    Tried it! Never got the bottom back!

    Yes, and it also allows you to make hash marks in the bottom of the tart pan when slicing the cake with a knife! I wouldn't recommend this. Just sayin'.
