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!

Try this site, it has a huge list of cake pans and she will send you the instructions for the ones she has:

Actually you don't need any lists or instructionsicon_smile.gif All pans bake best when they are filled 2/3rds full of 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.
