20" cake pans: You can purchase them - I actually have 2

My mil has an 18" (round) 2"deep dish pizza pan that she has used for cake more than she has used if for pizza. Maybe you could find some larger deep dish pizza pans.

You will have to check around on the sites if your local supply shop does not carry them. They do exist. If you are working with a small oven then you can purchase them in the 1/2. They look like half a circle and you just put them together when assembling the cake.

Oh, I forgot...also, you can buy the 1/2 rounds (large sizes) that way, you can bake them in a home oven. Problem is, you need 2 pans or wait for the cake to cool, wash the pan and start over.

auntginn, I had no idea that something like that (half circles) would exist! Thanks for the tip.

Fat Daddio's makes 18" and 20" half circle pans. I have the 18".

Yes, pans definitely come that large. I like to get the 1/2 rounds for the big tiers though.

What I like about them is you don't have to worry as much about the center not baking thru.
