I see that there's a $5.39 difference in price on these 2 pans on Amazon.com with Wilton's being $24.99 and the Big Top pan being $19.60. If anyone knows if there's a difference in the pans and what those differences are, good or bad, please let me know because I want to purchase 1 today. Thanks.
I love the Wilton pan! I don't know much about the other one though.
I have the Big Top pan and I like it I don't think their was a difference beside of the name they are the same size. I guess it just what you want a Wilton pan or Big Top pan. I hope that helps.
The difference is that the Big Top Cupcake Pan is silicone and the Wilton Giant Cupcake Pan in heavy duty cast aluminum. So I guess your choice would be based on whether you like to bake in the silicone - which takes longer for me - or whetner you like the heavy duty metal pan.
Either one will be fun - so enjoy whatever you choose.
I used the silicone one which is the big top one I believe and I did not like. I baked the cake the required amount of time and thought was done but the very center was still raw. I took it out if the pan and the middle ran everywhere. This was just my experience with it, I've never tried the wilton one.
I have the Giant Cupcake pan from Wilton and I love it. There was a thread on here the other day about the pan not baking evenly. some said that they had to bake the top and the bottom seperately. I have used mine four different times and mine baked evenly every time. SO...it could be a difference in ovens....maybe There were others that said that they didn't have any problems with it baking evenly either.
