    A couple of thoughts. First, you might want to post this in the Luthier's forum. Some of the world's finest ukulele makers lurk there and they can be very helpful to others. It's quite wonderful to see.

    Second, a picture or a set of pictures, or links to pictures in a Google folder, can be helpful.

    Is the cake pan too thick for the strings? What makes sound is the strings vibrating the soundboard (your cake pan bottom) and that soundboard pushing air. So if your strings don't have enough energy to vibrate the cake pan, then there's no sound.
