I was about to order a giant cupcake pant (as in, a cake pan shaped like a huge cupcake) and realized there's a few around. Anyone have a fave? How much cake batter do they hold (I'm not good at knowing cups and whatnot but if you use boxes, how many does it hold/is it equal to an 8" or 10" with batter needed etc)?

Yes yes I know I can carve, and I have. I made one recently and it turned out lovely and got 6 more orders for a giant cuppie. I decided to order a pan so I a) can use any recipe and not just a carving cake and b) don't waste cake since I don't make cakballs and I don't eat it...scraps get trashed!

I have the Wilton one. It's okay. The main issue I have with it is that the bottom section takes a lot longer to cook than the top yet the tin is all one piece.

ditto. The big W one is not good.

Hmmm. Does it cook well if you cook each side separately? The only other one I found is a silicone pan and quite cheap. The cheap part scares me, I do want quality!!

That's the giant silicone one. Anyone try it?

I bought the Wilton one when it first came out..
Found that by filling them 3/4 full and cooking them on a lower temp - it worked a treat.

Occassionally i have used ony the bottom half to make a basket of flowers cake
To make a different shape smaller round cake.

Not something i use alot - but you can just bake either side and make different shape cakes besides a Cupcake - iykwim.
