"mixed feelings but generally good."
Positives a) Should last a lifetime, heavy very good quality tins. Negatives. a) They leak a little bit despite being lined and greased. b) cake does not rise as much as I had hoped and it does shrink away from the sides of the tin a little bit. A comment from someone else might have put me back on track though by suggesting using 6 eggs /12 oz everything else. I will try this next time. c) Today a piece of one of the cakes has stuck to the side of the tin even though tin was well greased and base was lined d) Tins are heavy and difficult to empty the cakes out of.
