Caring for Your Wood Cake Box

Lucinda's Wood Cake Boxes are made from sustainable pine. Your new cake box needs to be seasoned before use. Simply oil the interior and exterior of the box with a light cooking oil. Place the cake box into a cold oven, heat the oven to 300°, and bake for 30 minutes. Allow the cake box to cool in the oven. During the seasoning process, you may notice a whiff of pine as the oils are released from the box.

The ideal cake to cook in Lucinda's Wood Cake Boxes is a dense cake that can sustain a long cooking time. DO NOT cook above 300 degrees. DO NOT wash the box, just brush out any crumbs. DO NOT bake without a paper lining. As you cook in the box, it will grow more beautiful, developing a rich patina from the heat, oils and sugars.
