I see in Mrs. Missey's instructions for the turkey shaped cake that it calls for the Wilton egg-shaped pan (the older one with two pieces). I've seen a few of these on ebay. My question is...some of the sellers only have one of the two pieces. Do you really need both, or are they exactly the same, and I could just bake twice if I needed a full Easter egg??
The two-piece mold makes a one piece solid cake.
thanks, Jan...I understand...just wondering if both pieces are exactly the same...want to know if I buy only one if I can still make the egg-shaped cake.
They are as close to "exactly" the same as they can be.
Yes, you can. I hope it comes with a piece to place the mold on while baking , so it stays put and don't spill.
Adding my two cents here..... i didnt have the bigger 3-d egg pan and used the ball pan on top of 1 layer of a 6" round instead for the turkey body. That worked out fine.... i DO think the smaller egg cupcake pan is definitely a good idea for the drumsticks and the wings however, i found that cupcakes with ice cream cones work fine as well.... (the mini eggs were better, though.). HTH
I misplaced my stabilizing rings for mine. I have used large round cookie cutters and wide mouth canning jar lids...bent to form an oval.
Every now and again, I come across the actual rings and look at 'em and think, "what the heck is that?". I put them back where I found them, and a couple of days later, I'll remember what the heck they are but forget where I seen them...I know I've done that at least three times. I still don't know where they are...I'll run across them again and won't know what they are again...pitiful.
okay, well this guy on ebay has only one side of the pan, no stabilizing rings, and he wants $5 for it. don't know if it's worth that, plus the shipping.
is there a ball shaped pan that is plain? the only one I see in the stores is the soccer ball.
there is a plain ball shaped pan.
i wouldn't consider it a good deal...1/2 a pan and no stabilizers...5 bucks plus shipping? nah...whoa, wait wait wait...if shipping were less than a dollar, maybe.
She mentioned you can also use the football cake pan for this cake. if you get it at michael's you can use a 40% off. You'll have to bake twice...but it's an option.
I just looked on ebay. looks like all the others up for bid are better deals than that one. I pmed you with a link to one...
I just did a search for Wilton egg pan and got plenty to choose from. one ends in about an hour.
thanks so much! that's helpful.
As far as the football pan...doesn't that one have the design of a football in it? why can't they just make that plain ol' pan !!??
here is a link on ebay where i bought mine brand new for $9.95 plus $5.15 shipping.
it is in an ebay store so it is harder to find than just a regular auction...it took me awhile to find it. they have 17 available right now for buy it now.
my cake decorating store nearby has the 3-d egg pans for $10.99, i think.
or was it the mini-egg pan that was 10.99???
ugh... my brain hurts today...
i checked all my local cake/craft stores, and i believe that the only time they sell the egg pans is in the spring. that is why i checked ebay...anything, anytime.
Hi, anyone interested in selling a 3d wilton egg shaped pan? I am desperately looking for one and cannot find. Please let me know. Best regards.
I wish yo9u lots of luck. Sold mine off yrs ago :(
