Trying not to panic..my cake pan is touching the wall

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I measured the width of my oven before I ordered the 16 in pan.
It was big enough, but when I just now put it in the oven the door seems to be resting up against the edge of the pan. icon_eek.gif

Am I about to ruin four cake mixes worth of batter?

I'm getting that bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. This is for a wedding on Saturday and I really don't know where else I can bake this whopper of layer.


Any advise?

I hope it fits! Maybe you have a friend who has a bigger oven that you can borrow? Good luck!!

It will be fine. I cram my oven so full of pans sometimes I can barely close the door. Once I even took a pan and balanced it on two other pans because there wasn't room to put it on its own rack. I've even taken cakes that were almost done but not quite and turned them sideways propped up against the side of the oven to finish baking so that I could put more pans in.

The biggest pan I own is an 18" and when my DH remodeled my kitchen and I got a new stove, I took the pan with me! The salesmen thought I was crazy, but let me tell ya, it's a pain in the butt to find a home oven that the pan fits into. Find one I did though.

My other biggest challenge was to find one that had flat racks! I didn't want one where the back edge of the rack angled up a bit to keep stuff from falling off the back side (as if you could or would push something small enough to fall off that far back in the oven without getting burned)

I feel you pain on this one, I've been there too where the pan has touched the sides or door and although I watched it like a hawk, it was fine.

Fat Daddio's makes half round pans for 16", 18" and 20" in 2inch and 3 inch deep pans. Luckily my oven will hold a 16" round. Not so with all home ovens. I just checked and you can order them on Amazon's website and get them delivered by Thursday with one day shipping.

Nope...If they're just about set but just need a little more in the middle you can prop them up, they're not going anywhere. I wouldn't do it with a lasagna but a cake pan works just fine.

I love your guts.
"Cake or death?" "Eh, cake please." "Very well! Give him cake!" "Oh, thanks very much. It's very nice."
"You! Cake or death?" "Uh, cake for me, too, please." "Very well! Give him cake, too! We're gonna run out of cake at this rate."

LOL!!! That's too funny! But good to know... I have two ovens that are built into the wall. They are great for baking lots at once but they are a tad on the small side.
