Trick or Treat!

31 Oct

Last year, I scored a fantabulous Jack-0′-lantern cake pan from Freecycle the day after Halloween. It wasn’t until I tried baking a cake in it that I realized why its original owner gave it away to a total stranger. That’s because it’s wide and flat, and trying to turn an actual cake out of it is a losing proposition. Crumble city, baby.

This morning, I sprayed the pan liberally with baking spray (basically Pam with flour added into the mix), poured a batch of the world’s best brownies in there, baked them an extra five minutes over what the recipe said, and then let them stay in that punkin’ pan until they were room temp all the way through. And then I slid my biggest cutting board overtop the pan, held it with one hand, and quickly flipped the whole contraption over.

Success! He’ll get orange frosting later, but I wanted to show you how well he turned out.

Happy Halloween, gang. May your diet be chocolate for just one day, may your little ghosts and goblins have a wonderful (safe!) evening tonight, and may you use a brownie recipe next time you need a shaped and formed cake. 🙂
