I'd assume that the Magic Line pan is a heavier gauge, so probably a better quality pan.

That said, I no longer make open books using a book pan. The only time I've ever had someone say a cake was dry was when I used the 2 mix open book pan. She ate one of the corners--an area much thinner than the "humped" center of the pages--and it was drier than the body of the cake.

My conclusion was that in order to bake the thicker area properly, the edges overbaked.

I now carve my open books from a sheet cake. I prefer to waste a very small amount of cake to having parts of it be dry.

Comparing a Wilton pan to a Magic Line pan is like comparing apples to . . . to . . .halibut. Just doens't make any sense. icon_smile.gif

I wonder if many who use the Wilton pan got it with a 40 - 50% coupon.....that is how I got my "starter" pans.....but had I known what I know now.....I would have gone straight to the Magic Line......
