what is your favorite cupcake shape? texan, standard, mini, or financier? if you haven’t made cupcakes with a financier cake pan, please buy, borrow, or steal one!
financiers are finger sized rectangular loafs about 3-inches long by 1-inch deep by 1-inch wide. financiers are elegant, fit between your fingers like second nature, and feed cleanly in your mouth.
financier pans, specially the ones made of silicone, bake perfectly even, crisp, and moist. i make financiers with just about any type of cake recipe, it always work without any adjustments to leavening, but be sure to bake only for 1/3 to 1/4 the time compared to a full size cake.
here are my ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Classic Carrot Cake with Dreamy Cream White Chocolate Frosting (page 122).
goodbye cup-cupcakes . . . hello financier . . .
