Interesting. However, I assume the photograph is of the cake pan  
itself? Then it appears to have a rather thin curtain wall. It may  
not be that thin all the way down, merging with a blocked area behind  
the wall that isn't obvious in the photograph, but even so, the top  
of the outside wall seems rather thin. What kind of cake would you  
bake in this that wouldn't have the outer walls crumble or break off  
inside the mold?  It does look like it might be nice for some  
sotelties, though.

(You Know You're in the SCA, when you analyze a castle cake for  
strategic weaknesses... and that cake has several as a fortress)
