Hi all!
I have been searching Ebay for the Wilton Number 8 and number 0 for my Mom's 80th...but there are few and far between auctions with prices I'm not sure I want to spend. I have researched online some and found this "pantastic" plastic type pans that are only $5 or so. Have any of you ever heard of them and if so, would you recc?

Thanks a bunch.
PS if anyone is wanting to sell their number pans (wilton) I'm open!

Have you thought about carving them out of an oval or sheet cake?

I seem to remember seeing something in the galler about how to carve numbers. I didn't save it to my favorites, but maybe someone else knows the link.

I'm sure Doug has probably done some patterns. icon_smile.gif

Personally I think I'd draw out the shape and size I wanted on paper then just lay that over the cake and start craving.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. I can't tell you how much I learn from you all. I have never had the opp. to take classes so I am self taught and still have a ways to go. BUT, whenever I'm stuck, you all save the day!

Carving is not as difficult as you would think. I was scared to try too, but "80" may be a good one to start with, not to many intricate angles. Just make sure you bake a firm enough cake (try WASC or enhanced cake mix for 3D from this site) and carve when frozen or just partially thawed. You can print out the numbers scaled to desired size from your computer right onto card stock and use them as a template, or transfer to cardboard for an even stronger template then just cut around with a serrated knife.
