Has anyone tried these sets of topsy turvy pans http://www.icingonlinestore.com/product_info.php?cPath=48_100&products_id=1540 ?? There are a few different sets--some mini and some large--at different prices. I guess I'm wondering how well they work. I love topsy turvy cakes but wondering if they would be worth it. Anyone have experience with these?

I know. Me too...that's why I'm hoping somone on here has some experience with them. I'm really curious on how they work and all that...

I tried to search to see if there were other posts about them but couldn't find anything...I never have luck with searching...nothing ever shows for forum results.

Has anyone used the topsy turvvy cake pan set that comes with either 3 pans or 5 pans? I am wondering if it is worth purchasing.

Many Thanks

You know I have seen posts pop up where people ask if anyone has these pans but I can't recall anyone actually saying yes they did.

My thought is because one side is alot thicker than the other, wouldn't the shorter side bake alot faster and there for over bake while the thicker side was still trying to bake? I don't know for sure, it is just what I think when I see them.

Hey Texas!
Your answer does make sense so I think I will just buy the Sugar Shack Topsy Turvy DVD and take it from there.

Thanks for the answer!!!

Glad it makes sense. Again I have no personal experince with the pans, but if I am going to spend money on them, I'd want my cake to bake evenly all over.

Trying the mini set would be worth trying to see how it performs before purchasing the larger set.

Hey Ladies!
Thank you for your replies. It does make sense to purchase the smaller set and go from there.

You guys are the best!

Happy Baking!!!

Yes, i bought the large sized ones, I hate them, And the return policy Sucks, It takes for ever to bake, I was instructed to not fill them but only half way, I havent sent them back , Cause i dont need a lot of things, that will add up to what these pans cost, I dont know if it was just me or the pans but i really dont like them I will just learn to carve cakes and will use them to feed my dog out of icon_redface.gif

Lesson learned for me icon_redface.gif I may try sometime and not put a lot of batter in them, But really i think it may be a waste of time icon_cry.gif
