Mark Sizes on Cake Pans

I don't use cake tins often and I always have to measure them to ensure I have the right size. I painted the sizes (in centimetres) of the tins on their sides with ceramic paint and baked them in the oven to set the paint. Now, no more searching for a ruler when I make a cake or flan.

For easy and cheap permanent marking get a Nissen Marker. They are about $5 - $6, depending on which type you get. I prefer the ball pen type, just from old habit, but they have many different types. Nissen markers

I used to use them to mark electric motors before putting them into the burn-out oven to burn all the insulation on the wires in them, to make it easy to remove the old wires prior to re-winding them. Red glowing cast iron did not obliterate the job numbers on the stators. In your oven the pans won't get half as hot as those big motors did.

The ball pen type seals as soon as you stop writing. No fuss or brushes to clean. In the last 35 years I have used up a bunch of them, but none ever dried out on me.

You can of course also use the Nissen Markers to permanently identify keys, tools, lunch boxes, jam jars, whatever.
Have FUN!

Regular permanent marker will also last for a very long time. I have written my name on cake pans with it, ones that I take to pot lucks and such. It has stayed on for years, through many trips through the dishwasher.
