How Many Wilton Character Cake pans.... - Page 4

post #46 of 57
Like Cupcake I have about 40 or 50 (afraid to count) because I dont use them--never have. I do like what Freddie is saying about using them in different ways..as bases etc. Freddie can you explain a little some of the things you've done or point me to a gallery (maybe I can get some use out of these yet!)

Well cakearoni, I will use the cakes I have put in my photos for examples:

Dolphin cake: used Smurf pan for body, Bunnyhead pan for tail, Bell pan to widen head, Mini heart pan for fins.

Baby Dragon: Mini foot pan for feet, Small Bat pan for Snout & Nostrils

Tiger Cubs: 3D Lamb pan

Wolf: 3D Bear pan

Over the Hill Couple: Horse Shoe pan for legs, 3D ball pan for heads, small Stocking pan for feet.

Princess & Frog: Smurf pan for base cake to give a cooler shape.

Unicorn: 3D lamb pan and Mini bowling pin pan for legs.

These are some of the versatile uses for these pans, have also made a penis cake from the Dora pan, made bread in several different pans to make shaped family sized sandwiches for parties, made a nude man using the bumblelion pan and have used several other pans for base cakes and to make 3D cakes. The old Wilton Yearbooks also gave alternative uses. Just look at the shape and get those creative juices going !!!

i have about 20 or so and most of them i have never used and were gifted to me... the ones i have used were purchased by customers who said "can you make THIS cake? you can keep the pan". I dont like making character cakes... i HATE star fill ins.... icon_mad.gif ANyway, my cake pans adorn my walls in the kitchen. It saves on storage and its pretty! I also collect antique cake takers and those are lined up on top of the cabinets.
and now that i am looking at my Dora pan hangin on the wall, all i can SEE is a penis!!! Thanks alot! i may have to take that one down!!! icon_eek.gif

Over 60. I need to count too.

Over a dozen and I hope less than 20, because I've only used 2 of my own! :oops: I've just started baking and all of my pans so far were collected secondhand. The first was an R2D2 pan for the birthday of my son who loves Star Wars. I was surprised how easy it was, his friends were so impressed, and one sweet little girl asked me to make her next birthday cake, which wasn't for about 10 more months! Yes, I'm still decorating with a star tip, but I'm learning and I'm having fun. I'm trying to cut back on buying more pans and just get the more versatile pans. I also found a library in a semi-nearby town with a cake pan collection, but by the time I make a trip to borrow and another to return, it costs about $15 in fuel, so I only go when I can combine at least one of the 2 trips with something else. I've borrowed 3 from them so far.

 

Too funny about the Dora/penis pan! That's one I bought, too, but I saw an elephant a young relative would love.
