Luxury Christmas fruit cake. Moist, rich and packed with dried fruits, nuts, aromatic spices, citrus and brandy. A Dairy-free, Gluten-free and Paleo recipe.
This article provides a guide to choosing the right size and shape of cake tin. I describe the impact that the cake mould has on the structure, and why the depth of the tin is important for achieving an even rise. I explain how to swap a round tin for a square tin, and how to adjust a recipe to use a larger or smaller tin. A conversion table is included to show the relative volumes of standard cake tins.
