Fat Daddio "Mad Dadder" cake pans.

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Has anybody tried the mad dadder cake pans? I am wanting to attempt my first topsy turvy cake, and those pans make it look so easy!

Too good to be true or worth a shot?

Did you ever try them? I'm wondering the same thing - if they are worth it?

I just made a topsy turvy with a similar set of tins. I am supposed to be putting the finishing touches on it now.

No carving , lovely angles , flat base . They do take slightly more mix than the equivalent size of the three inch tins that I use. I have borrowed the set I used from another decorator. I am seriously considering getting a set for myself.

How do they bake. I mean how do you get the batter to cook on the angles?

I ordered my set on Global Sugar Art, along with some Satin Ice fondant. I am going to give it a try and see how they work out. I splurged and got the 6, 8, and 10 inch rounds, but they also sell them in square.

I'll update with a picture when I am finished. I can't find out much about them online review wise. I found them by accident. I was going buy some hexagon cake pans when I stumbled on those. If you go to Global Sugar Art and look under Fat Dadios you will see them.

They have a little leg that helps keep them balanced.

the bottom of the pan , is angled and they have a support that keeps them straight. They were a nightmare to line though , that was really the only drawback.

Does each pan have it's own support so you can bake a bunch at one time or does the set come with one suppotr?

I'm getting ready to order a set. I received notice from GSA about the pans and a set of 5 pans were on special for about $89.

I guess on the pans, the sides are straight up and down versus making them yourself where they are tapered - is that correct?

So when you bake, is one pan enough for each tier, or would yo need two pans of each size? It seems like you would want two layers per tier anyway, wouldn't you? Having a hard time visualizing ...

Yes the sides are straight, but you could carve a taper if you wanted,

You wouldn't need to bake two layers, the high side was five inches and the low side three.
that is untorted.

I've seen these but am still confused as to how you put them together - yes I am a little slow lol

How do you support them properly? Keep in mind that the question is coming from someone who hasn't done a topsy turvy cake yet icon_biggrin.gif

I just heard that fat Daddios company won't be selling them anymore, I wonder if this is true
