I have two cakes due at the end of september that I'm going to need to purchase the cake pans for. Where is the best/cheapest place to purchase pans and supplies?
What kind of pans? Squares, rounds?
Did you see my recent post about the Classifieds Facebook page?
You never know someone might have what you are looking for!
I'm needing the wonder pan for a barbie, 8 in round and 1/2 round.
I would think for the wonder pan you could use a pyrex or stainless bowl.
I've used my Kitchen Aid mixing bowl for a doll cake. I've also just used round pans...stacked & filled. Stick in freezer for a bit and then carve. Use a small pyrex mixing bowl to bake the rounded top in.
I don't know about anyone else, but I usually look online (www.goldaskitchen.com, www.globalsugarart.com are two I've used in the past). I have also purchased when Michael's have their 40% or 50% off coupon. I've noticed Wal-mart sells some Wilton cake pans cheaper than Michael's regular price.
If it's a pan you don't plan on using regularly, you can also contact your local cake supply store to see if they rent pans. The one in my area rents a pan for about $3 a week.
Hope this helps! Good luck with the cake!
That's really cool about renting the pans. I guess my problem is that Wal-Mart is the only supply store in my area, so I shop online or drive a ways to a supply shop.
I got a brand new wonder pan on e-bay, but I really like my pampered chef glass mixing bowl better.
Hobby lobby is cheaper then michaels and joannes at regular price, and every other week they have a printable coupon for 40% off 1 regularly priced item
