Has anyone used the plastic cake pans? Some of them are called pantastic bakeware. The descriptions say they can be used exactly as aluminum pans, I have seen them in the stores as well as on global sugar art. The price point would certainly be beneficial for specialy pans that won't get much use, that is, if they work.
I have one. I've used it once. I think it worked okay - I can't remember, it's been so long. The only thing with them is that they're meant to only be used 4 or 5 times and then thrown out (at least according to the guy I talked to), so you'd have to take that into consideration.
Well I just ordered one. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I saw them in a local supply store and was wondering the same thing....thought about trying one for a specialty cake that needed a shaped pan. Next time, maybe I'll go for it.
I used one several years ago for my grand daughter's birthday. It was a horse pan, and if I remember correctly it baked well. No problems. Honestly, I had my doubts, but it didn't stick and turned out fine.
