I've been trying to find creative ways to use up some of the extra candy we have lying around the house. Santa must have gone a little overboard filling up the stockings this year, because we have an excess of candy! Never a bad thing, though! I was thrilled when Bakers Advantage sent me one of their Fillables cake pan sets to review. In case you are not familiar with these pans, each set comes with two pans. The top pan is a "regular" cake pan with fluted edges. The bottom pan is also oval shaped with fluted edges, but it has oval shaped grooves in the center. After baking the cake, you can fill the grooves with candies, pudding, fruit, or other fun fillings of your choice. My pan set came with a recipe book full of inspiring ideas. The cake pan sets come in various shapes, including rectangular, heart shaped or oval pans. I was lucky enough to get a set of 10 inch round pans with scalloped edges. It does take twice the amount of batter you would typically use to fill the pans. Normally, I prefer to make homemade cakes. With these pans, however, I recommend cutting some corners and using box mixes. It was much faster with the chocolate fudge cake mixes I used, and still very tasty. Even though it took some extra time, my dark chocolate Take Five cake made a very impressive display on my cake stand! The pans are non-stick, so there is no need to use baking spray. They released easily from the pans, with a beautiful fluted shape to the edges.
