Trifle with this.

Charlotte cakes have been around since at least the 1700s, and have stuck around thanks to their dead-simple preparation: simply line the mold with sponge cake, bread, ladyfingers, or the like, and fill it with a custard, mousse, or fruit purée. The whole thing is then unmolded onto a platter before serving, which is why these moulds typically feature two heart-shaped handles that make flipping out the cake a whole lot easier. This traditional vintage copper mould c. 1880 features detailed, hand formed brass handles, a tall brass finial, and a slight hand hammered finish for a dessert that looks just as impressive in the pan as it does turned out.All items from Coppermill Kitchen are final sale.
