I'm not an everyday baker but for the cakes I do make I always rely on and purchase the Wilton cake pans.
Recently I had the opportunity to have a one on one demonstration to make a Latvian cake. I can't buy them from a bakery but have to rely on my Latvian husband to find someone who will make one for a special occasion. I really wanted to learn how to make these so he arranged for me, my brother (the real baker of the family) and my sister-in-law to watch and learn how to make this cake.
The first thing we were told was to buy the Wilton 10" cake pan, 4 of them. Well, I already liked this brand so I knew I had one of these at home. Now I only had to buy three more!!
Wilton makes great quality baking pans. This Wilton cake pan is 10" round and 2" deep for higher cakes. I have always liked the lightweight and durability of this cake pan. They have consistent heat distribution for uniform baking and no uneven sides, Whatever size Wilton cake pan I have used has always cooked up evenly and with no browned edges.
I have never had a problem with anything sticking to the pans thanks to the quality of the aluminum and smooth finish they use. They wash up beautifully in the dishwasher until the next time I need them. I have not had a problem with rust at any time.
I've included a couple of pictures of the finished product. The first one with the raspberries on top was the class project. This cake is so delicious with a cookie crust bottom layer and sinful ingredients. The cake with the mandarin oranges on top is one my brother made when he got home. We had 2 beautiful cakes for my daughter's going away party the next day.
Trust Wilton to help you make a great cake. Decorating it was a breeze with Wilton's icing bag and tips!!
