Super Cute!

Pros: Cute cake

Cons: uneven baking

I LOVE this pan.  The only bad thing about it is that the top of the cupcake does not take as long as the base to cook.  I have started baking them separately.  I bake the base and when that is done and out of the pan, I bake the top half.  Works the best for me.  I also love to coat the base with melted candy coating to make a cute cupcake "wrapper" for my cake base.  It slips right out because the surface is non stick.  LOVE this pan!

Very Versatile Pan!

Pros: Versatile!

Cons: none

I've used this pan a million times for so much more than balls.  Any time I need a rounded top on a cake, I use half of it and trim it to fit the size that I need.  It sits perfectly on top of a 6" layer cake.  It's pretty lightweight aluminum by my cake bakes nicely especially if I put a flower nail in the center of it.  It's definitely a must have pan for me.

Wilton Tilting Turntable

Posted

Pros: none

Cons: flimsy, top falls off, cake slides off

This turntable is just awful.  The top just sits on top of the base and doesn't lock onto it, so if you move it, remember to hold it by the bottom.  The non skid surface is not very effective and even smaller cake slide if you tilt it much at all.  It's very flimsy and shaky, I think because the top just sits in the base, so it doesn't turn smoothly.  Even though I got this with a half off coupon, it was such a waste of money.  I have one of the old plastic wilton turntables, and like it, but I recently bought an 18" round wooden turntable (lazy susan) from Ikea and absolutely love it for cakes.  If I need my cake tilted, I can stick something under one...
