Hello All, I am new to cake decorating and was wondering where is the least expensive place to get the "true" square cake pans and which brand is the best.

Thanks.

Magic Line is the best. I actually don't think that they're all that expensive, like many seem to think. You really do get what you pay for in this case, and they are top quality.

Where to buy them kind of depends on where you live. If there is a cake or restaurant supply store near you, you might find them locally; in the L.A. area I can think of at least three places to purchase ML pans...probably way more places than that. Sounds like you won't have time to order them online without paying for expedited shipping, but if you do there are of course zillions of places to find them including Amazon.com and of course GSA.

I agree w/Mensch, I really don't find them all that expensive. My husband once tried (poor guy) to buy me some fancy cake pans from Williams-Sonoma that were at least twice the price of ML pans. I took them back and used the $ to buy a new set of ML's (and then some) icon_lol.gif

I bought my first ML's a couple of months ago and I love them! you definitely get what you pay for.

I bought my Magic Line (made by Parrish) at www.countrykitchensa.com. If you spend over $100, you get 10% off. At least, that was the deal when I ordered mine.

The pricing on the magic line pans isn't bad at all! I've been thinking of buying some new ones myself and was wondering what to get. Do you get even baking (no dome) with the magic line pans or do you still need the strips?

Thanks Guys. It is my mission today to find them locally. I live in Bakersfield, CA and well, let's just say there is a shortage of any professional supplies here in town. CC is the best!

Does anyone have the Fat Daddio pans? What is the difference between them and the Magic Line?

hmm.. Just thought the name of your town is quite ironic, isn't it? icon_smile.gif

That is funny.... But good news, I found them at the one and only restaurant supply place in town. Thanks for the suggestion, I wasn't thinking restaurant but only bakery supplies.

I use Magic Line and always get even baking with mine WITHOUT the strips--absolutely no dome--they're awesome!! I can't say enough good things about these pans!!

Magic line is located in Gardenia, CA. I have been there you can go crazy!!! The fat daddios are very nice and are covered for at least couple of years.

I have one Fat Daddio and the only thing I like about it is the name. I find that it is the very last pan I reach for.
