Hello CC Family

I have a question? I am making out my christmas list for Santa and was wondering what size & shape cake pans should I ask for?
(Example: 3in Rounds or squares 6-14)

Also which is better to have the 2in or 3in and why? I do plan to somewhere in the near future open up a business of some sorts.

Please help decide would like to put it on my list.

Thank you
Happy Holidays

the depth is totally dependent on your personal preference. I prefer 2" others prefer 3".

But pan brand is the biggest factor i think. Magic Line all the way! They're more expensive, but they're heavy duty and bake great!

I personally have 2 of every size (even and odd) in round from 2" up to 12" Then a few sizes above that in qty's of one. I also have 2 of every even size in squares from 4" up to 12", eventually i'll end up with odds too, but haven't needed them that much yet.

I also have 2 pans that are 12x18 and one that is 9x13. Definitely get 2 of your most used sizes though, give you much better efficiency!

Thanks for you help. So the only reason you would
really use the 3in is for the taller cake factor, it is
not due to many people request it. I look at the cake
shows and it just seems like the cakes are huge I just
thought they used only 3in.

all of my cakes are 4" high. I bake two 2" layers and then stack them with filling between. Some people like to bake one 3" cake and torte it then add filling to get the 4". It's all personal preference.

I gave away my 3" deep pans. I think they bake "funny." I much prefer 2" deep pans. And yes, there's no question that Magic Line pans will last a lifetime.

I use 3" for all my cakes, but I torte twice. With filling and frosting, they end up just shy of 4" tall.
