Do you normally bake 2 ten inch squares?
After trimming, how many does it feed?
Do you flip and completely cover both sides with fondant?
As far as pricing, do you charge the same as you would for any other fondant cake?

I have not made one yet, but I want to give it a try. Yes, I know there is a tutorial on here. I saw it done a different way on youtube. Just wondering what you all do. Thanks in advance for answering my questions.

i am supposed to make a pillow cake for my sisters bridal shower... i planned on buying the pillow pan set that Wilton offers, seems like it'll be easy!

Oh, I did hear that Wilton now sells a pillow pan. I haven't seen it sold near me though.

Have you used your pans yet? I was wondering if you had any feedback on their performance. Please let me know.

I got the Wilton pillow pan set and have used it once. The picture is posted on my profile. Got it at A.C. Moore and used a 50% off coupon. icon_biggrin.gif

Oh, thank you so much for posting that. They don't have those pans at Joann's, only the new "gold" square pans. I will try Michael's or Hobby Lobby. They have 40% off coupons.
