im having trouble finding somewhere that can send me cake pans at a reasonable cost and that aint too expensive for shipping to nz... I had a price from somewhere (its gone out of my head who it was from) that was $50 for an 8 10 and 12 inch round pan and then it was $60 for shipping to NZ... ive had many larger packages sent to NZ (clothing) and its been cheaper!
I need to buy various different size pans.... looking at a 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and possibly 16 round and also square pans...
I dont wanna spend huge amounts on shipping if i can avoid it... I know its expensive to ship to NZ but surely its not THAT expensive for something so small that could stack into each other????
Anyone have any suggestions on where i can get these?
Also having problems getting gum paste.... not many places in nz sell it and i just had to pay $15 for 250g (0.55lb) of gumpaste here in nz and it would be enuff to do about 4 animals/fairies
Thanks heaps in advance for your suggestions!!!!!!
I just bought a bunch of Magic Line pans, and paid about $15 for shipping from Ohio to Maryland. Huge box, well packed, which I'm actually happy about because where I bought them had a no-return policy on their pans unless they're damaged. It was fairly light - 2 8 inch pans, 2 6 inch pans, 3 5 inch pans.
So yes....I can see that if it was $15 to ship 2 states over, that it would be 4x that much to ship halfway around the world. The flip side is that it's almost 2 hours drive to a the cake store that sells these, and with gas prices, the shipping was cheaper (also guaranteed I could get my 5 inch pans - yay!)
What you may want to do is try to make them as few shipments as possible, and buy a bunch of stuff at once - save on shipping that way.
I also really don't know a way to get around paying that for shipping... shipping is expensive any which way you turn...
I'd do what Sue said....
Get as much as you can in one order... that way you don't have to reorder and keep paying high shipping
Maybe someone else has a better option
I don't know about the shipping but why don't you make your own gumpaste will save you alot of money.
