This strawberry shortcake cake pan by Wilton is perfect! I enjoy using them for birthdays to make them extra special. To me a cake made by mom or dad or someone in the family is the best! This is made very nice and sturdy and I have never had a problem with one. I like that it comes with the insert with directions for icing and the nice colorful image, although I don't even use the icing directions. It is really alot simpler then most believe.
The pan is quite light but I have never had a problem with it cooking or anything due to it being lightweight and light in color. I have not used the warranty so honestly don't know how easy it would be. It seems most companies find a reason why the warranty has been voided.
The only drawback to this pan is that it is hard to clean, you have to grease well the entire pan for it to flip out and thus getting in little grooves to get it clean is hard. They are usually full of flour and crisco or the like. But it is due to the construction of the pan and well, I can't see it done any other way, this way the grooves bake into the cake making it a cinch to decorate.
