rosy sponge cakes ...
I baked these rose-shaped sponge cakes using a 4oz mix, and a silicone mould.
Being somewhat influenced by the Hairy Bikers' Battenburg, I also added red dye to the mix to make them pink.
Slipped a bit, and then really wish I hadn't!
Being the first time I have ever used the silicone method, the whole procedure was a bit hit 'n miss to say the least.
I'm what you could say 'old school' and up until now I have always opted to use what I've always used, a baking tin!
Mixed reviews really.
The cakes came out of the cases well, but on tasting them the texture of the sponge was, well, reminiscent of rubber?
Not so springy to the touch, and still tempted to give preference to tin, but I guess there is room for both in my baking.
The mould came from Lidl, and being the girly-girl I am, was seduced by the pretty rose shapes!
