I found a magazine a couple of months ago that showed how to decorate cupcakes like puppies and I tried it and it actually worked out. I don't have any talent so I was quite impressed. It kind of got me hooked on cake decorating so I went to my local craft store to see what I could find. I started to shop the sales and get some round cake pans to give it a whirl.
I was really impressed with this 6 in. round cake pan. My cakes turn out perfectly shaped when I use the Wilton cake pans. It is not lopsided. I was so impressed with this pan now I am collecting all different shapes and sizes.
I do have to admit they are kind of expensive. You really have to watch the sales at the craft shows, and you can also find a few sizes of the round pans at Walmart. A great thing about these cake pans is that they clean up nicely, and dishes are another thing I hate to do.
I highly recommend that if you do a lot of baking that you give the Wilton cake pans a try. While they are a little more than traditional pans, they are well worth the extra money.
