Libraries are loaning elaborate cake pans so you can make a showstopper

Exciting news – the Great British Bake Off starts again tonight and it’s cake week.

Which probably means you’ll be inspired to create some sort of tiered showstopper around 9.30pm tonight.

But when you haven’t got the tent full of equipment to use, it’s a lot harder.

That’s why we love this idea from the States.

As well as the normal books and DVDs, libraries are now offering elaborate cake pans.

It means you can create that Transformers shaped cake or unicorn head without having to splash out on a fancy tin that you’ll never use again.

Annemarie Dooling spotted the tins at the Ludington library in Philadelphia but it seems it’s offered in other towns too.

Arkon Summit County Public Library replied to the tweet to say they lend cake pans and some kitchen tools.

A sign on the wall alongside the pans explains that you can keep the pans for a week and you just need to take them to the desk to check out, like with a book.

Casey Leming who works at Ludington tweeted: We’ve been circulating cake pans for a while now and our collection keeps growing – super popular with the community and an amazing resource in all!

‘I’ve worked at Ludington for 6.5 years and adore it. Our collection began growing with cake pans a little while ago and now we have museum passes too – it’s amazing what local libraries can achieve with support from the community!’

We’ve not seen the idea copied in the UK yet but we’d love to see it. A dinosaur-shaped cake is surely Hollywood handshake worthy.
