I'm so excited. A client of mine(not a cake client, my real job client) who is a phenomenol baker gave me her whole set of nordic ware cake pans today to try out for a couple of months. She gave me the 3-D snow man, 3D beehive, 3D sandcastle, 3D pumpkin, 3D octopus, butterflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, roses, sunflowers, OOOHHHH the snowflake cake pan, halloween 3D cookie cutters, haunted house, black cat, pumpkin, flying witch....... I'm baking right now!!!!! What a nice lady to share such expensive bakeware. My freezer is gonna be full. I'll post pics when I get them done. Our parish bazaar is in 6 weeks and the cake walk ladies are gonna love me.

found one on amazon for 19.95. Google nordicware stadium pan. Even 19.95 is pricey to me though.

I don't know if you have one near you, but Williams-sonoma has an outlet retail store. When I go to Las Vegas, I head over to Primm and go to the Williams-Sonoma marketplace. I found the 3-d bumble bee pan, Santa claus, Easter bunny and all other kinds for $9.95-14.95. They had the stadium ones for 9.95!

They've got incredible prices and I hope you can find one near you.

Wal-mart carries the Nordic pans. I've seen the castle, the stadium, and a flower one there. I think they're $20.

A lady in my mom's group contacted me once about having a stadium made, I quoted her $85. She wasn't happy about it. A couple days later I was walking through Walmart and there it was. Emailed her when I got home, and she sent me a picture when it was done - came out real cute. (A lot of the detail of the pan is lost in icing, though.) Only cost her a box of cake mix and a can of frosting. icon_biggrin.gif

I've often wondered about these pans. Icing them just seems like it would be a challenge. I know that getting the 3D cookie pieces to fit together isn't a walk in the park!

I have several of the Nordic ware pans. One of my favorite is the bee-hive. Have you tried the recipe on the packaging for the bee hive? It is a lemon-honey cake and everyone thought it was delicious.

I have the stadium pan - how far away are you from the west side of Columbus? I"m in Hilliard and would loan it to you. BTW - it makes a great OSU Stadium!
