Great Grandma's Cake Pan

Cake Pan
Cake Pan

 My Great-Grandmother’s cake pan has been passed down from generation to generation. From the stories I’ve heard from my Grandmother, my Great-Grandmother would always make sure that there was something sweet to eat after every meal. Which makes a lot of sense the more I think about it because my Grandmother does the same exact thing, except that occasionally there are times where there are no sweets after dinner.
Many different kinds of cakes have been made in this cake pan, so many that I can’t even list them all. My Grandmother has made many cakes in this pan and so has my mother and me as well. We have this saying that whenever the cake doesn’t turn out well when we are using her cake pan, it must mean that she didn’t want us to make that cake. For example, I’ve tried making a peach cobbler pound cake at least 4 or 5 times and it has only turned out well once, which was the first time I made it. That must mean my Great Grandma did not want me making that cake at all. Furthermore, as someone who uses my Great-Grandmother’s cake pan every so often, I would like to continue passing it down through my family's generation so that we can share our successes and failures together through the same pan.
