Key Features

  • Available in 12 sizes.
  • Professional bakery equipment.
  • The wooden structure to bake cakes slowly is ideal for baking Japanese sponge cake Castella (Kasutera).
  • The traditional Japanese unit of mass “Kin (斤)” is 600 grams. One castella sponge cake used to be sold as per 1-Kin (600 g). For example, 4-Kin is originally to make 4 castella cakes to be sold.
  • The traditional Japanese unit of length “Sun (寸)” is 1⁄33 m (30.303 mm).
  • Custom-sized frames are also available on a make-to-order basis. Please feel free to contact us for a quote and provide us with your preferred inside and outside dimensions.

Use & Care

  • Please be aware that the height of one castella frame is very short, so that you will need 2 or 3 frames for baking. Choose frames for your preferred height.
  • It is usually used 2 or 3 frames to bake a castella cake. Add a frame on the base frame in the middle of baking to prevent the growing cake from touching the baking steel cover.
  • Use with some paper or baking paper as a tray.
