Anyone use these? Seems reasonably priced, and the shape is great. Recommend something else?

They are cute but a pain in the butt to ice or cover in fondant..Only upside....You don't have to bake the layers one at a time!!

I have this:

http://www.intotheoven.com/Pans-Mini/c87_88/p395/Round-2-&-3%22-2/Tier-Cake-Pan/product_info.html

I have had no problems baking or getting them out of the pan. However, the PPs are correct that they are a bear to ice. I did these over the weekend using it.

...and here are pictures from CC that looks like this pan (or something similar) was used:

Awww....cute little baby cakes. Thanks for the links! Might give this a try sometime. I hear that MagicLine pans are pretty much the standard go-tos for any pan you would need. Gotta get me some!

Yeah...I would think that those would be impossible to ice. I'd do fondant if I had to do those.

I would think it's much easier to cut and ice the cakes individually. I recently did 80 mini 2 tiered cakes at my PT job....boy that took a while. icon_smile.gif

All of my min cakes were individually iced and stacked and let me tell you it is a pain in the tushy! I would definitely be interested in trying one which is already stacked. I actually just bought the one that you mentioned jammjenks. Since I don't have time to try it, I lent it to a friend of mine. I can't wait to give it a go though.

OK, so I have one of these pans I bought at an ICES convention years ago..I think it was almost a prototype from some south american decorator icon_confused.gif

ANYWHO....tried to make some recently. Failed miserably.

Granted, these are a pain in the rump..but anyone have some sort of trick to getting these little devils iced to look half decent?

Don't bother spending the money.
Bake a sheet cake and cut your own layers using recycled tin cans.
Use a 4", 3" and a 2" can with the rim cut off.
You can get 3 1/2 tiny cakes out of a 9x12 sheet cake.
They are very easy to decorate and are very inexpensive to make.
