HIC Brands that Cook {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Every time we have company over from out of town, which ends up being much more often than I imagined, I make our guests a Boston Cream Pie.  Its so nice having a go-to dessert, and I’ve been intent on making it better every time.  Ladies and gentlemen, after two and a half years of Boston Cream Pies, this was my best one yet!  I had family in town to run the Boston Marathon (and yes, they were all ok, just having crossed the finish line four minutes before the explosions), and I was more than happy to make their visit complete with one of my pies.

I owe all of my success to my new baking supplies from HIC Brands That Cook.  I was sent a Mrs. Anderson’s Cake Cutter, a Mrs. Anderson’s 8″ Springform Pan, and The World’s Greatest Stretch n’ Twist Silicone Bag Ties!

These tools make cake making a breeze, and whole lot more fun.  Just call me silicone’s greatest fan, again, because these silicone bag ties are great.  Now I don’t have to save all the twisties from empty bread bags since these are reusable.  They are sure strong, and the friendly face on the end makes my ingredient bags happy :)  These would also be great to use on cords or bundles of odds and ends.  The seal is rather tight, but easy to undo.

First I got to work on the yellow.  Baking in a springform pan is great–you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to dump out your hard work in a single piece with out sticking.  After the cake bakes, just unlatch the spring on the side, and the cake stays put on the center round while you lift off the sides.  As far as springform pans go, this one is top-notch.  The parts glide together and apart, it has a tight seal, and it is smooth and durable.

After the cake cooled and I let it sit in the freezer for a while to stiffen up, I pulled out this cake cutter.  I worked for a summer as a cake decorator, and to make filled cakes, we had to first saw them in half, and mine never turned out quite even, as in the filling would end up higher on one side of the cake and lower on the other.  I still can’t slice a cake down the middle, even after that whole summer of practicing.  This cake cutter is heaven sent.  The wires are intensely strong, and adjustable so that you can move where you’d like your filling, and with two wires, you could make two slices and have a 5 layer cake.  Its a piece of cake, haha.

After I spread the filling, I put the springform rim back on and set the whole ensemble in the freezer.  Having the sides back on was so helpful so that the filling wouldn’t smoosh out while it settled.  Once the cake was slightly frozen and I didn’t worry about it falling anymore, off came the springform rim, and I served the cake directly on the base.  This set-up was great!  For every future Boston Cream Pie, I will do exactly this!
