I can't afford right now to buy all those perfectly straight angled pans (Wilton's Decorator Preferred Pans) - I have several of the square Performance pans my mom and mother-in-law bought for me. Does anyone cut the sides off of their cakes to make a perfect 90 degree angle? That may sound extreme and crazy, but I don't like the slight angled tilt that the performance pans have. I also was told that the Decorator Preferred were hard to get the cake to release from the corners. I don't care if they lose a few edges here and there as long as I can get most of the edges to come out right - I can find some trick to fill those in I suppose. I also was reading one of the posts regarding the "upside down" icing method. I tried that a while back and it worked great on a round cake. I wonder if I could use this to get that perfectly square edge...hmmmm, my wheels are turning now. Well, if anyone has any ideas on this or an "easy" fix, please let me know.
