Am I crazy or are the sides on the Wilton Pans not totally straight? For some reason I am noticing this on my cake for today more than normal. Also, I don't seem to have this issue with my 6 in set, only my 9 in. Am I nuts?

No, you're not nuts! These are nothing but junk!

It depends on which Wilton pans you are using. I have all Decorator Preferred pans and not one of them has slanted sides. None of my pans "nest" one inside of the other.

I respectfully disagree with the previous poster, I do NOT think the Decorator Preferred pans by Wilton are "junk". Each and every cake in my photos was made with those pans. As a hobby decorator (and a person with a tight budget), Wilton pans work well for me.

HTH,

Toni Ann

Toni Ann,
I was talking about the regular Wilton pans, not the decorator preferred ones. If both sets work for you then that is great. The other set had me cutting and trying to get the sides even; so for me they were junk. JMHO

I have an 8x3 and an 8x2. They are not the same size!! I didn't realize this until I had already stacked the bigger of the 2 on top! I had to trim it while it was on the other layer. When I put the pans end to end, they are clearly not the same size.

You're not crazy. I have several size Wilton pans and the only ones that "nest" are the 9" pans. The 6",8",10"and 12" all have straight sides and will not fit inside one another.

It's that inconsistency that makes Wilton pans . . . less than desirable.

I bought Wilton pans for my first class and have since donated them to goodwill. they are terrible. I use either Williams Sonoma gold pans (guaranteed for life) or Magic Line. For me they just seem flimsy and overpriced. I've never had a problem with my other pans.

Thank you for all of the replies, I now know that what is making me nuts is that I have the 9" pans that nest. I got them on sale years ago and they didn't have the paper in them to tell you what size they were. I kinda just assumed they were 8in. Thank you all for solving the mystery for me and letting me know I'm not crazy!!! icon_lol.gif
