AThis is terrible! I would take it back. If you want I would be happy to try to find you one, I have has a lot of luck looking in antique stores and thrift stores finding Wilton pans as well. Any idea how much shipping from Knoxville, Tennessee to you would be? I would like to help you! I wou,d send you mine but I'm really attached to it :0) or if someone on here isn't using theirs? I will totally open any pan in a box from now on!

This is a photo of my two bear pans I purchased 2 years ago from Joann's Fabrics. It says Wilton china 502-518. There is no way these are the same pans!

Thanks dixiedarlin what a kind lovely offer,icon_biggrin.gif but I am watching a few on Ebay at the moment, I'm wary of buying a new one mail order  from a uk seller so am looking at used pans from private sellers where they look like the photo you have posted ie the right thing.

 

I have been looking at some on ebay in the US so might try that if i can't get one here.

 

Once i get the correct bear it will be my last Wilton purchas for a while

I was going to make myself a Birthday cake for a change using this pan, I had my heart set on a Pandaicon_sad.gif

 

I totally agree re looking inside the box from now on, and if i can't look in the box I aint buying it!

AI am very disappointed in Wilton, 99% of my cake products are from them. This changes my opinion of them quite a bit. Sorry about the panda plan but you can make one for fun when you finally get the right pan! If you don't have any luck getting one just let me know! :0) good luck!

I've seen this on ebay in the US.

 

Its new and the packaging is completely different to the one I bought in the UK.

 

Has anyone bought one from ebay, in the US?

 

Can you have a look and see what you think? Does this look right?

 

 

 

Dare i risk it?

 

I'm taking my fake pan back to the shop tomorrow!

AThis is the box that mine came in. Was at my cake supply shop today and they have the boxes like the one you have with the new feet. New pan and new box. Wilton is crazy they have changed the shape! So the pan you have isn't a fake, it's just the new version. Maybe they changed manufacturers in china and had to change the mold??

AYeah. They are crazy! That pan looks stupid and I hope wilton goes back. I have used mine for a frog, and bought it for a frog on a lily pad for my daughter's first birthday with it. Today is her 9th birthday, so I have had it for a while!

 I contacted a seller of a new one from the US but they were unable to confirm if it was the new or old box. So I bought this used one yesterday. I already got a USPS international tracking number. I'm so excited. The 2 cost me less than $25 equivalent to £17 GBP ( postage was $46) but worth it to get the one i wanted. I havd been outbid on 2 in the  UK both went for £30 plus P+P

AYay! It looks brand new! Did both sizes come together?

My panda sitting on a 9" circle with bamboo all around is very popular!

AReading this thread has made me want to pull out my mother's cuddly bear pan from the 80's. I always liked that pan as a kid.

Yes both were bought together, I can't wait for them to arrive.  Its from Garage Sales Emporium on ebay they have loads of other pans they all look hardly used some still have the stickers in..

 

 

Do you have a picture? couldn't find one on here

AI've done two panda bears using this pan. I think at least one of them is in my photos here on CC. Hope this helps :-)

Thanks Evoir I found it. It is amazing as are all your cakes! Just one question Cherry ripe cake? I live in the UK but my friend grew up in Austraila and she's mentioned Cherry ripe- I thought it was a kind of sweet. Do you have a recipe for this as it might be cool to make her a cake for her next Birthday to remind her of Aus

AYes, cherry ripes are a dark chocolate bar, filled with glace cherries and coconut. I don't use a specific recipe, but if you use a general dark chocolate mud cake recipe and substitute coconut milk/cream for the milk in the recipe and then add in chopped Cherry Ripe bars (around 160 grams for a 8" round for example), you'll have essentially the same thing!

Not sure until i go to the post office. I will let you know once i've been tomorrow or monday. Its only charged on items purchased outside UK  for goods valued at over £9 I only paid £16 approx $25 so d't think it will be much. I hope not as the postage was £30 approx $46

Customs charge was nearly £18 !! OMG more than i actually paid for the pans let alone the postage! I will be contacting customs as its ridiculous!! Be careful all you UK bakers buying stuff online from outside the EU, factor in the customs charges.

Check what was listed as the value on the customs forms, it may be wrong. My sister has successfully appealed the charge before on something where they listed a much higher price on there.

Thats the worst thing the price was listed correctly as $24.99 which is just under £17 and it cost me £18 customs charges! I intend to appeal though.

A friend of mine here got a hamper from Fortnum & Mason sent over as a gift, she had to pay $80 in taxes to pick up a gift! She actually got the bill after they had delivered it, so she's contesting it saying she wouldn't have picked it up if she'd known.
