Cake tins FAQs
Q: What is the most common cake tin size?
The most common size is an 8-inch or 9-inch cake tin. Typically, cake recipes will make the perfect amount of batter for these sizes, which create the perfect fluffy cake without it being thin or soggy in the middle. Depending on the type of cake you are baking, choose between a round cake baking tin or a rectangular cake tin. If you are baking a Victoria sponge cake, the round 9-inch cake tin is ideal, whereas lemon cake would work better in a square-edged tin or loaf tin.
Q: What size cake tins do you need for sponge cakes?
When experimenting with cake tins, you must get the right one for your cake. Choosing the wrong size/depth can result in a poor rise or the sponge not being cooked in the middle. A classic cake tin with solid sides and a flat bottom will ensure the perfect form for your sponge cake. The size of your cake tin is largely your choice, depending on the amount of mix and the preferred finished size. However, we recommend an 8-inch cake tin or a 9-inch cake tin to get the most even depth and rise from your sponge.
Q: Does cake tin size matter?
As mentioned previously, cake tin size is relative to the mix you’re making. A recipe will often suggest the appropriate cake baking tin size for your bake. This is because the ingredients are closely calculated to create the perfect rise in the corresponding tin. So, if you are unsure of what cake tin size is right, consult the recipe in the first instance.
