I am buying the Wilton football cake pan for a cake, I was wondering what other cool cakes you have made with this pan. I don't think I will be making many footballs and I want to get my money worth!

I'm always on the lookout for the same thing. One use for something seems such a waste.

I just got an email from Wilton about their new book and somewhere in the email was a link to this page. It is fantastic! I love that there's more ideas out there. I have too many of these pans and they've done nothing but take up space since I bought them. I recently used the football pan intending to make Noah's Ark, because I wanted to practice sculpting animals. I never ended up making the cake, I just think it's funny that the Wilton's site has the same us for it that I came up with on my own. icon_lol.gif

You may have already bought the pan but just wanted to say that I had an awful time with that pan. It warped inside the oven and poured out all over the inside of my oven. Completely worthless and threw it away.
Maybe it will work for you but not sure.

I bought this pan several years ago for my kids' cakes and have used it several times. I have made fish, Nemo was the kids' favorite, and footballs. I have never had a problem using it; however, I do place it on a cookie sheet in my oven when baking with it. I don't recall if the original directions called for this but I have always done it and the cakes have turned out perfectly.

HTH.

I have used mine to make a pumpkin cake. I cut the ends to get the pumpkin share.

I'm just reporting what happened to 'me'. I did put a cookie sheet under it. It warped as I was baking and it spilled over the pan, over the cookie sheet and down onto the oven.
Maybe it was just a quirk. icon_smile.gif
