My mom, despite being a veteran professional baker of over 3 decades, never owned a small cake pan. For her, cakes are meant for celebrations, and living in a household full of aunts, aunties, cousins as I was growing up, the concept of a small cake is still alien to me. A piece of cake ( mind you, her cakes are gorgeous!), went a long, long way to the neighbours, friends and anyone who might pop in for afternoon tea.
But in my household, things can't be anymore different.
