Did I get a bad package of Wilton cake drums? I've never bought Wilton before but i had a coupon for Michael's so I picked up a package. They don't sit flat on the counter!! It's like they're warped or something. I used it anyway b/c I can't get one from Country Kitchens before Sunday - but now with the cake on it, it doesn't seem sturdy at all! It feels like it's bowing!! Anyone had this experience? Ugh!
Sorry, I can't help you, but I was just going to buy some Wilton drums at Michael's tomorrow. Now, you've got me thinking. I'll be watching the replies to this one!
I have never had a problem with them, you must have got a bad batch, or somebody bent them.
that happens all the time... that is why i never buy too many cake drums at once...
what my DH does is he puts weight on top of them to make them FLAT...
he is the master of finding flat ones... i buy them from a local place here in miami.. america cake supplies, and they always have nice flat ones, but when i am forced to go the michaels and buy them, i have him search for the straight ones..
but it will not impair the strength of the board. just try to put your hand up under it!
and unfortunatley you just have to be careful when you buy them and make sure that they are as straight as possible!
I use the Wilton ones all the time and have never had a problem, I agree you must have gotten a bad batch. Does any one have a suggestion on where you can get square ones similar to the Wilton ones? I have 1 local shop, but they are a bit pricey.
the only places where i have seen the square ones, are the local places. i have check all the other places, and eventhough you are a bit pricey that is pretty much the only place that you can get them...
This happens not only with wilton but with other companies. I have received them like that!..I have no idea why..but they are no good to use and nothing will fix! I would return..
I hate to say it, but I have never been happy with the larger Wilton cake drums. They are kind of flimsy and have too much give.
Thanks guys, I've never had this problem with non-Wilton Boards. Guess I've been lucky. Unfortunately the cake is already on it.
stlouiscake - this is a 16" and that's exactly what it feels like - too much give!
It also appears that they're taller than the regular ones I buy - the ribbon I have for it won't fit.
Aww sorry beach cakes, I know I had this issue a few times with different companies. I dont know if it has to do with weather and packaging.
Maybe a stupid question but are cake drums & cake boards the same thing?
Yes Nancy...they are the thick ones...and that's not a stupid question!
