Graduations are the time to gather family and friends in honor of great achievement. A personalized cake, or cakes in this case, makes it even more special. The Countless Celebrations Cake Pan Set makes it easy to bake cakes with a BIG personal message. Here the special pan inserts create the year of graduation, but make it your own. Every letter and number, along with punctuation marks, are easy to bake by just following the included illustrated instructions.
Bake cakes. Follow pan instructions to create “2” with pan inserts. Fill pan two-thirds full with batter. Bake and cool. Repeat for “0”, “1” and “6” cakes.
Prepare cake board. Using cakes as patterns, cut cake boards 1 in. larger than cakes; wrap in foil.
Ice cakes in white icing.
