I found these at our magical thrift store... the one I've composed a half dozen posts about in my head but never actually posted here...sigh.
They are baking pans of some sort... I thought they would make pretty little tea cakes for the niece's wedding showers. I brought them home and washed them and started searching for recipes for.... what? It would help if i knew what the pans were actually called! I've googled "recipes for vertical cake pans" and different variations... but NO answer.
They come in a variety of shapes: stars, trees, playing cards (spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts):
And they come with lids for each end. If anyone knows what they are and where I can find recipes, I would be SO grateful!
