Best pans to bake cakes in? Opinion question - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I use the towel method to even out the bump as well. Learned it here on Cake Central and found it very helpful.

Just for a different opinion, I really like my Master Class cake tins. Although, I haven't used the Magic Line brand of tins so I may be missing out on something fantastic icon_smile.gif

Might have to buy one just to do a comparison.

I had a great experience with William Sonoma gold touch..I used magic line as well but for my sponge cake, it came out perfectly and even with goldtouch.

Magic line is OK but it was not as good as goldtouch..

Magic Line or Fat Daddio. They both work well. Stay away from the Wilton pans. They are thinner and just a tad better than the ones from the dollar store.

I'm a hobby baker and purchased a lot of stuff before I "knew better".  However, I am happy with my Wilton Performance Plus Round pans, as well as the Wilton sets:  Hexagon, Petal, and Heart.   I purchased 2 sets of each with 50% off coupons from Michaels or Joann's and was able to spend far less. 

 

All of my square and rectangular pans are Fat Daddios.  They work very well.  (Never, ever, buy any of the Wilton square or rectangular pans.  Most of them have angled sides instead of straight sides.)

 

I LOVE my Bake Even Strips and my metal flower nails.  Here's a thread with lots of photos if you wish to see how they are used:

Williams Sonoma Goldtouch. No strips or anything needed at all. Flattest cakes ever, no darker sides on the cake, even baking. They're expensive, though.

I love my majic lines.  I have round, square and sheet.  I love the corners.  My FD's are good heavy pans, but they are rounded in the corners and I don't like that.  I do line the bottom of my pans regardless just because I like the results better than just coating them with some type of release.  As far as the strips go, I have used them, but found if I took old towels and cut them into strips, I have good results with that too.  I like the way it keeps the sides from getting over done before the middle, not just the doming.  I also use nails in the middle of all but 6".   That combo has proven good for me.

Hi everyone, Just wanted to let you all know that I have found this thread VERY helpful. Thanks for all the good advise and opinions on the different brands.

Yes this thread is super helpful but I don't get why they say they're expensive unless I'm looking at the wrong ones, I'd say they are priced almost same as Wilton ones if you buy them by the set. Anyone think I might b looking at wrong ones.

Just to clarify, those are not anodized. You won't be able to our them in any dishwasher.

I purchased my fat daddios from ultimate baker. I got the nice 20% discount because I purchased $200 (10% for $100). I also got the ones with the removable bottoms. Makes life very very easy!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
