Eddingtons Scary Skull Cake Pan Tin

Updated on March 28, 2016

Nightcat loves everything about Halloween! She’s pretty sure it is a national holiday and if it isn’t it should be.

I went out to my mailbox today and found a delightful surprise. My sisterfriend Uma had sent me something via airmail from England. A skull cake pan from Eddingtons. Well I was delighted with it. Though it was clearly designed with a spooky frame of mind and this is going on late November, you all know cute skulls are welcome any time of year in my kitchen. So a quick rinse and dry, then I rummaged in my cupboard and came up with a gluten free brownie mix. Lovely, yes?

So I set the oven to the lowest recommended temp, sprayed a generous amount of cooking spray in the tin and rubbed it into every nook and cranny, then mixed my brownie mix. I spread it into the tin, making sure to tap the pan vigerously after to get the mix down into every nook and cranny, then baked it for the least amount of time and tested it. I put it back in for two minutes then put the finished brownies, skull tin and all on a wire rack to cool for over an hour.

Once it was mostly cool (I have the patience of a two-year-old on a sugar high) I took a sharp knife and ran it around the edges, then turned it over onto waxed paper on top of the wire rack. A few smart thwacks with my hands and my brownie skull came out beautifully. I think it would have looked even more perfect had I waited, but you read the part about being impatient, right?

And these brownies are perfect and I mean perfect! Super moist, flavorful and chewy, so this is a wonderful cake pan for any occasion in my kitchen at least. You could certainly decorate, but these brownies were so good I didn't do a thing. And yes, clean up was a breeze and the pan still looks perfect.

I am seriously planning on hanging him or her in my kitchen between baking uses as this pan (or tin as you like it) is way too cute to but stored away. I liked the construction and the metal is fairly thick which makes for more even heating and baking. There is also a non-stick coating which makes getting your baked goods out a breeze.

I'm thinking this would make rocking Day of the Dead cakes as well. So why not surf on over to Amazon and see what surprises you could bake with this cheery skull pan?

Isn't she lovely? The pan went right into the oven all on her own. No supporting pan and the results as you can see are flavorful, rich and super-moist. I liked the ease of use and of course the overall design is just too adorable for words. And don't just think Halloween, Samhain, or Day of the Dead.

Skulls are super chic right now and popping up everywhere on the fashion scene, so don't just tuck this pan away. It would make a kill Monster High cake if you remove the lower jaw after baking, and any collector of skulls or lad or lady who wears skulls or skeletons would adore a treat baked in this tin.

Can you tell I'm excited? The finish is pretty enough that as I said she is going up on my kitchen wall to add some cheerful d├ęcor in between uses. And yes my photo is also the background for this lens, enjoy!

It Also Makes A Lovely Wall Hanging


I love decorating with skulls all year, and my kitchen is no exception. Here the skull hangs between a metal owl and decorative tray in my kitchen and I love looking at her perpetually cheerful grin on a daily basis as the kitchen is now my office.

Skull Ice Cube?

I have also used the pan to make some delightfully spooky ice skulls to entertain my followers on Deviant Art. And for other reasons. Skull ice cube, anyone?

Questions or comments? Do you own and love this cake pan? I'd love to hear from you!

      @Sylvestermouse: I would as well, Sylvestermouse! I will in the future and share the results, but I wanted people to see her as-is first. There is a neat video of a decorated one though. Thanks for the lovely visit and comment, hugs! :)
