I have an upcoming wedding order for 125 3-inch mini-cakes plus an 8 inch top cake for the bride and groom to cut. I met with the bride and groom yesterday to comfirm and receive deposit. They don't want a two layer filled, they just want one layer 3 inch round individual cakes. The only pans I have right now is single pans the ones you buy at Hobby Lobby that come 3 in a pack they are 3 1/2 inches and they also have slanted sides. I would like to buy something with straight up and down sides plus bake more than one at a time. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was looking and would the springform pans work? I found some that are for cheesecakes would those work or not?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
They have an excellent set of minis at global sugar arts.
If you are looking for straight sided pans I highly suggest magic line pans.
However for 125 mini cakes I would suggest getting a sheet pan and then baking it as one then doing cut outs of the cakes. If you bake a 12x18 you would be able to get at least 15 cakes (if not more if you staggered the cuts) from each sheet cake. Otherwise you would have to get a lot of 3" pans to bake all of these. Would that be a good investment? would you use them a lot? if not then I would suggest cutting out of sheet cakes.
