Hi Everyone! I am wondering, for anyone familiar with Paul Bradford http://www.designer-cakes.com/ he likes to use a cake that's 8 x 10 x 3 for most of his carved cakes. I've looked high and low all over the internet and have not found any pan even close to that. I have an 8 x 8 x 3 square, a 9 x 9 x 3 square, a 10 x 10 x 3 square, a 9 x 13 x 3, an 11 x 15 x 3 and such but nothing even close to the 8 x 10 x 3 that he seems to favor. Of course repeated inquiries to his helpline have gone unanswered. The best I can figure is to bake a 10 x 10 x 3 and cut a couple inches off it. But before I did that, I was wondering if anyone knows if there's even an 8 x 10 x 3 pan available. Any suggestions? (Thanks in advance!!)
Never seen a cake pan that size before...trimming a 10 inch seems the logical thing to do. Just my opinion...
Maybe one of these Silverwood adjustable pans, where you put the dividers in according to the size you need? I have other Silverwood pans and they are a quality product, but I have not tried the adjustable one (not sure what stops your batter leaking under the dividers...?)
English home-grown product:
We have an Australian company that produces a similar product. I have that exact size - very useful ..
Awesome!!! You guys ROCK!!!
Okay I have another question -- I've written that company, cakecraftworld several times to see if they ship to the United States and have received NO response. Naturally I hesitate to order if they cannot even answer an email. Does anyone know if they ship to the US? Is their customer service always this crappy?
I have ordered from them in the past and their service has been very good. Can you give them a call?
I know they definitely deliver to Europe and I'm pretty sure they do worldwide, though their deliveries link is down at the moment.
Here is a 10 x 8 x 3 cake tin: http://www.cakecraftshop.co.uk/shop/products/id/cul88360.htm ... they do ship to the US, I'm not sure what the shipping costs will be though.
UK sizes are often different from US/Canadian sizes so you might have better luck searching UK baking sites for specific supplies used by Paul. I can send you sites that I use if you like, otherwise, I often just use Google.co.uk to search.
Hope that helps.
