Most on here use what's known as a "unibit", sourced from Harbor Freight.
"Back up" your cake pan with a piece of wood where you wish to drill, and have at it.
Hold it securely, ( with some gloves on), so if the bit catches and snatches it out your hand, you won't injure your foreskin actuators...........
I doubt it will catch, as the unibits are made for sheet metal, and should go right through it.
No need to run it wide open.
Hope that helps ya'!
