Hi CCers I was wondering if anyone knows a good supplier of cake pans on line. I need a 10X10 pan and the local cake suppy shop is so expensive. And what is better aluminum or ??? One last question, What is a smash cake? icon_biggrin.gif

Fat Daddio has great pans but pans are expensive, just chalk it up as a business investment. Smash cakes are the little 4" or 6" cakes that you give to the baby on their first birthday for them to dive into on their own. They get totally covered in cake from head to toe it is so cute! That way the main cake is for all the guests.

Magic Line or Fat Daddio are the best ones. You are going to pay for good quality but in the long run it will last a lifetime.

A smash cake is a small cake made just for a baby's 1st b'day party that he/she is allowed to dig into and smear all over and eat some of it icon_smile.gif A 4", 5" or 6" single layer is usually made. Sometimes even an extra lg cupcake like the petite doll skirt could be used. It often is given free when a fair sized 'regular' cake is purchased for the rest of the guest to enjoy.

I order most my pans from amazon . com. All name brands, new or used in good condition and a lot cheaper.

I only have the Wilton Performance pans but would love to try the other brands.

You might have good luck if you keep you eye out on ebay, both new and gently used.

my advice would be-not to invest in wilton pans. i did-and i regret it!
i dont like the way they perform at all.
i cant justify the cost of replacing my pans so im stuck with these.
i do have a set of fat daddio hexagon pans and love them!!!
if you are starting off, invest in the pans. its well worth it!
