A mould for doing (as in baking rather than cutting) concentric cakes
(its probably got a fancy name)


You are correct about the creation of concentric cakes. Its name is not particularly fancy, but if you can describe what the end product looks like, I will give you the win.

I do own the set. Dimensions are about 8 or 9 inches in diameter. You do pour something into the containers. The pieces are heated up by putting them into a heat source.

I guess water, then something sits on top, then in an oven. But it seems to have three separate compartments. Some sort of steamer?

Not a steamer. Water does not go in any of the compartments.

Sorry. That is incorrect. All you need for that is a jelly roll pan, or better yet a half sheet pan.

This is a tiny bit more complicated.

I had to Google Image Baumkuchen to find out what it was. Wow!!!!!!

No, it is not a Baumkuchen maker. It is more simple than that, but you are moving in the right direction.

I love that this item has gone 24 hours with only one person 85% sure and not yet hazarding a public guess. For a contest that attracts so many accomplished home cooks, I feel like 24 hours is a pretty good run. If nobody guesses correctly tonight, I will give a clue tomorrow.

Goodnight friends.

ang.

24 hours? Pshaw. Mine went for 8 days.

My first two thoughts were ashtray and sterno holder, but I know those are wrong.

Egg poacher?

[edit] I see that's already been shot down too.

Not an ashtray; not a sterno holder; not an egg poacher... and it looks like this picture is still in the running for a chance to beat your impressive record of 8 days (Nah-nah-nuh-nah-nah!!!)

For making checkerboard cake? Different flavors of batter in the different rings?

Oh gee, now I have to do the next one.

I'm about to take a CPR class (I think), so I'll find something when I get home.

Oh geez, sorry. I stayed late at work for a CPR class, then got a bit sick on my dinner. Sparing you the details of that, here's a new thing. I hope it's not too easy or recently used.



What is it?

P.S. Thanks for the cake, Ang. I think just the picture won't raise my blood sugar.

No guesses on this handy dandy shiny gadget?
