I wanted to make a small sample cake with 2 4" and 2 6" tiers but I can't find 4" pans. My local Michael's has a set that comes with 3 but it looks like the sides are tapered so they won't stack well. Any ideas on where to get one? TFL

Magic Line has a 4". Google it to see who carries it. I now I got mine from La Sur Table. Not sure if you are by one.

I bought a Magic Line Mini Tier set on Ebay. It included the 4 in pan. I found this on ebay now :

In a pinch, if you can't wait for an online order...I've used 4" ramekins and they worked fine.

If all else fails, bake the cake in a 6" pan and them cut them down to a 4" cake; or you could bake a sheet cake and cut the 4" & 6" rounds from it.

Before I purchased my 4" pans from Magic Line, I used an empty 28 oz can. Use plenty of spray and line the bottom and sides with parchment.

That is a fabulous idea! Way to recycle.

Can't remember where I got them, but I love my 4 inch springform pans. They are awesome.

@hisnhersparty  I'd use a template or cake circles to cut the layers needed. Another alternative would be to buy pastry rings and use them to cut the cake. I'd suggest chilling the cake or sticking it in the freezer it'll help make a cleaner cut.
