I just got six of these from King Arthur. Problem is they aren't round. What do you do about it? Do they round out in the oven or do you put them in a custard dish so they will be round or do you just overlook the asymmetrical cakes they make?

Are these the ones you got?

I think if I wanted round, I'd drop them into a muffin tin. If I didn't care what shape they ended up, I'd just place them on a sheet pan (not touching each other) and hope they stayed round. Usually, less than perfect doesn't bother me much at all. As long as it tastes good, that's good enough for me.

Yep. Those look just like the ones I got. They came with a cake mix for lava cakes. They don't fit in the muffin pans I have. They fit in the custard glasses I have but they stick in those. I'd probably tear up a cake if I tried to get them out of the pyrex custard cups. I will try them on a baking sheet and see what happens.

Well, lava cakes are suppose to be kind of smushy, aren't they?

Whipped cream hides just about any mistake on a dessert.

I guess once they are cut open, it doesn't matter what shape they were a few minutes before.

Maybe if you soaked them in very hot water they would go back to their original shape. If they fit inside a custard cup you could try making a small stack, say custard cup, silicone cup, custard cup then put that in a pan of hot water, pull out the stack in a few minutes, pour off the water and let the stack cool to room temp. Maybe it would return to its' round shape. Another thing is that molten lava cake batter is heavy and just the weight alone might round things out.

Thanks Bugster. I give that a try.
