Bevelled cake pans

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I've been looking at those bevelled cake pans, because they make such beautiful shaped cakes. But do they give enough height? With the regular pans I just use two pans per layer usually, but how would it work with the bevelled pans?

I think most people don't really understand how these work until they own them or know someone that has them.
You would use the regular round cake pan and the bevelled cake pan to do each layer.

Ohhhh...that makes sense.
But I think the ones I saw came in odd number sizes (like 9") and my pans are even sizes.

Wilton discontinued theirs, but they were in even sizes and you likely could find them on E-bay.

Good idea, I hadn't thought of ebay.

It is a pan that is flat on the bottom and has sort of angled sides and it is usually used for Lambeth style cakes.

I don't think Squirrelly and peanut are on the same page.

The contour pans made by Wilton were in odd sizes (I have the set, plus I own every yearbook so I double-checked icon_smile.gif). They still make the 9" contour pan if you're interested but finding the set may be a little more difficult.

Honestly, it's very easy to just hold your serrated knife at a 45 degree angle and remove the top edge of the cake in order to create your own contoured edge. The set isn't really all that great, I just bought it because as a WMI I got a discount on it. I think in 8 years of doing cakes, I've used them once.

Looks like you can still buy them, albeit not the Wilton brand, and they do come in even sizes:

The "Konture Kake Pan" 7-pan set looks like a good investment if you really want the pans.

Cakepro, I am going with the sizes stated in Wilton Wedding Dreams 200, pg. 98 where they state the top bevels are 8, 10 and 12 inch and bottom bevels of 14 and 16. Not sure if you are referring to older Wilton bevel pans or what.

Otay. We were just talking about different things...you were referring to beveled pans but peanut was looking for contoured pans. I forgot that Wilton made those beveled pans, but crazily enough, when I googled "beveled cake pans" I got lots of hits for contoured cake pans. Go figure! icon_lol.gif

Oh, I hate to ask...what exactly is the difference between bevelled pans and contoured pans? I have an idea...but I want to be sure.

Ok Cake Pro and Peanut, now I am confused, haha. Her first post was about bevelled pans, not contours, did I miss something, haha, these are two totally different kinds of pans. Are you gals trying to make me think I have lost my mind, haha!

I didn't realize they were two different types!
