I just inherited a bunch of character and odd Wilton pans from my grandmother in law and there are no instructions on the amount of cake or baking times/temps. I know a lot of cc'ers use these so I was wondering if anyone had a cheat sheet for them (primarily the book one). I looked for another thread for this and might have missed one so please feel free to point me to an existing thread as well.
Thanks for all your help!
Thanks. My DH is getting irritated by all the pans and told me to use them or get rid of them so I will make him some cakes this weekend to bribe him
Actually you don't need any lists or instructions All pans bake best when they are filled 2/3rds full of batter....so in most pans, as they usually are 2" deep, that would be about 1 1/4" deep. Another thing about Wilton character pans is almost all of them were designed to hold the batter of one cake mix.
As for baking temp........if you bake all your cakes at 300 to 325 degrees you will have a very moist, flat cake instead of a dry one w/a hump in the middle. For the amount of time........use you nose! If you can smell it it should be done.
