Piñata Ball Shaped Cake Tin With Secret Filling 1 "Not fit for purpose." Mrs Borowski 30 July 2015 I bought the cake tin from the Chelmsford store to make a piñata cake for my daughter's birthday. The sponge came out dry and crumbly and was difficult to remove from the tin despite being greased. The coating from the tin flaked off and stuck to the cake. It then collapsed when I tried to assemble it so the birthday cake ended up in the bin. I usually love the things I buy from Lakeland but this was a real disappointment.
