Easy Ways To Make A Cake Without A Cake Pan

Where’s your cake pan? Don’t have one? Not everyone is lucky enough to have a big kitchen with lots of equipment; but that shouldn’t stop anyone from baking. Should it? You might’ve just started baking and want to try it out before buying a pan. Or  you might just wanna save some money! Either way, there’s a lot of easy ways to make a cake without a cake pan, so its time to think about what to use instead of a cake pan.

Make a cake pan out of aluminium foil

Did you know you can make a reusable cake pan completely out of foil?

The trick’s to draw the outline of any shape that you want by folding foil to create the walls of the pan. You’ll then need some more foil to cover the outline and the bottom of the pan. Just like that, you can make any shape and size cake pan!

This trick is a great way to save space as well as lots of money!

Make a sheet pan

Using a sheet pan to bake your cake is by far the easiest and quickest way!

The ideal sheet pan for making a cake would be flat and have sides that are at least 1 inch high. As long as the height of the sheet pan is at least i inch, the rest of the dimensions don’t matter, if you have a smaller or larger pan, you’ll just have a smaller or larger cake!

Using a sheet pan your cake might not be as pretty; but compared to the other ways, it sure a lot easier!

Make a pull apart cake

Making a pull apart cake is another great way to get the job started without a cake pan.

Making a pull apart cake requires a few little steps:

  1. use the cake batter to make cupcakes instead
  2. once the cupcakes are cooled make the shape of the cake you want using them. ( Could be a circle, heart … anything!)
  3. place a big scoop of frosting on top of all the cupcakes
  4. use a spatula to evenly spread the frosting on top of the cupcakes connecting them

By icing the cupcakes as one rather than individually, they look like a cake and your pull apart cake is complete!

However, you can pull one cupcake from the bottom and free it from the rest and eat it. Get it…pull – apart cake!


See! It wasn’t that hard. All you had to do was think outside the pan!

How To Store A Cake Overnight

Well done! You baked a cake! You can eat it all right now, but if you want to save some for later and don’t know how; we’ve got the right answer for you. These methods work for any type of cake; layered cakes, tiered cakes, sliced cakes and frosted and unfrosted cakes too! Here are some of the best methods on how to store a cake overnight.

But first, Do I Need To Refrigerate My Cake?

A lot of the time, the answer is no. Most cakes are perfectly fine at room temperature for up to three days. Refrigeration is needed if your kitchen is hot throughout the day, your cake won’t be served for another three days, or the cake has a fresh fruit filling or topping, or whipped cream frosting.

If you do decide to refrigerate, wrap the unfrosted cakes or cupcakes in plastic to keep them from absorbing any weird fridge smells and to stop them from drying out; then unwrap them to warm on the counter before serving. For frosted cakes, chill the cake uncovered for 15 minutes, then wrap it in plastic wrap.

Tip: Buttercream frosting lasts the longest outside the fridge!

How To Store Cake Layers

When storing your cake layers cover them in glad wrap making sure all of the cakes surface from top to side and bottom is covered. If you don’t have glad wrap, an alternative is zip lock bags; normal plastic bags can’t work because they don’t seal %100 of the air out. At room temperature, these cakes will last a week before they start to go stale on you (oiled cakes last 1-2 days longer than butter based ones). However, freezing cakes works for up to 3 months! This works for cupcakes too!

How To Store A Frosted Cake

Frosting is like a protective barrier for the cake, so theres no need to wrap frosted cakes in plastic. However, cover your cake with a cake keeper or an upside down bowl to keep it safe from dust, hair and other things that are in the air. A frosted cake lasts 5-6 days at at both room temperature and in the fridge.

The Best Way To Store Cut Cake

As soon as you make the first cut, the moisture starts to escape making the cake stake quicker. There are two solutions to this problem. The first method is to cover the cut with frosting which might not work in some situations which is why the second method is to cover both sides of the cut with glad wrap. Cut cakes last a little shorter, being up to 4 days.

Now that you know how to store a cake overnight and even longer, its time to get to work!

Most Popular Cake

Cakes. They are one of the most enjoyable deserts in the world! They come in different sizes, shapes, flavors and they can be found anywhere. Over history, more and more features have been added to cakes and more recipes have been developed.

But here is the big question…

What’s the most popular cake? The answer to this question isn’t as simple as you think. Each part of the world has a different cuisine and taste, which means each country has a different cake which is “most popular”. Although some of the cakes like chocolate and vanilla are most popular cakes in general all around the world. Here in Australia, we don’t really have a favorite cake, but we do have a few nationally loved desserts such as banana bread, pavlova and lamingtons.

Middle Eastern Flavours

At Azidelicious, our cakes are based around the Middle Eastern flavors, which are quite different to the ones in the west. Let’s see why these flavours are different. The following are some of the most popular authentic Middle Eastern ingredients that make them unique and different:

Rosewater – originating in ancient Persia, rosewater is a flavored water which is from steeping rose petals in water. Rosewater has antiseptic and antibacterial properties which means it has medicinal benefits such as healing wounds, cuts, burns, and even scars faster! Almost sounds like magic! Also rosewater’s scent also makes it attractive in the perfume industry..

Cardamom – native to South India, cardamom, cardamon or cardamum is made from the seed pods of the cardamom plant. Cardamom is a close relative to ginger and turmeric and has been around for around a thousand years! As old as Vikings! Cardamom adds amazing flavor to food and is also a great helper in the digestion system!

Cinnamon – Cinnamon is a spice derived from the inner bark of many Cinnamomum tree species. Cinnamon is mostly used as an aromatic condiment and flavouring ingredient in a broad range of cuisines, including sweet and savoury meals, cereals, snacks, tea, and traditional foods. This spice is native to Sri Lanka and has been around since 2800 B.C!


GF Saffron Persian Love Cake

Rich in flavour and exotic in taste


Saffron – being another Persian icon, saffron is known for being the most expensive spice in the world. Saffron is used in a range of middle eastern food from savories to desserts. Also it is very easy to add to your diet, plus it has benefits such as improved mood, enhanced weight loss and cancer fighting properties. A must try!

Some of our most iconic cakes at Azidelicious such as the Persian love cake, saffron cake and apple crumble cake use these authentic spices.

We also include the above spices and many more in our other cakes and cupcakes!

How to bake a moist cake

When baking a cake, there are a lot of things you can do to improve the process and the result. One of them is making a moist cake , tender sponge.

What does moist cake mean?

The definition of a most cake is a wet and soft sponge which easily melts in your mouth.

What does moist cake mean?

How do you keep a cake moist?

Here I will share some of the useful tips for making the perfectly moist cake with you.

  • The first step is to sift your dry ingredients, such as flour, cocoa, spices, etc. This process is effective in breaking up clumps in the dry ingredients.
  • If the recipe contains butter and sugar it is very important to whisk the butter and sugar until the mixture becomes pale and fluffy.
  • All the ingredients should be at room temperature. Cold ingredients don’t incorporate very well and the recipe will fail.
  • After your cake has cooled down brush it with simple syrup, which is simply water and sugar heated until the sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool.
  • Most cake recipes turn out best when made with full fat dairy products. If your recipe has dairy try to use full fat products for more moist.
  • If a recipe contains cake flour, measure it carefully. It is one of the major parts of cake baking. Cake flour is a low protein flour and has superfine consistency.
  • Don’t over mix the batter. Too much air can be incorporated into the mixture and extra gluten will be developed which then ruins the texture of the sponge.
  • Over baking cakes dry them out too, so make sure you are keeping an eye on the cake. When you insert a toothpick in the center of the cake and it comes out clean or with a few crumbs on it, your cake is ready!

How do you keep a cake moist?

What can I spray on the cake to make it moist?

Again, the answer is simple syrup. Feel free to add some flavouring if you want. Vanilla, lemon, orange juice, coffee or any kind of extracts can be added as a flavouring to the syrup.

After you have completed all these steps it is important how you store your cake. You should keep it in an airtight container and keep it at room temperature. If your cake is frosted with dairy products keep it in an airtight container in the fridge instead.
