Springform vs Destroying Aluminum

Super Salad | Dec 8, 200706:16 AM     8

I have a recipe for a pudding cake that uses a springform pan. After baking, you are supposed to remove the springform and the pudding melts down the side of the cake. I know a proper kitchen should have a springform but I'm not sure I feel up to buying anything right now. Do you think I could use a disposable thin aluminum pan and after baking just cut the sides off with scissors? Would this produce a similar result?

I did find an aluminum pan of appropriate circumference and depth which I purchased but if you think it will be a disaster I'll just spring for the spring . . . form.

Thanks for your advice!
