I was going to order some square pans and they only have in stock the 3" in the sizes I need. I only own 2" pans. Will it make a difference if I purchase the 3"? What is the advantage or disadvantage of doing so?
Thanks for your help!
I only own 3" pans, I love them! Bakes the cakes tall, then just slice if filling is needed, if it doesn't need filling, then great.
I hated my 3" pans so much I gave them away. 2" only for me. Cakes seem to bake better when not so thick.
Agree with leahs... I couldn't work with 3" pans. I love using 2 2" pans for a perfect 4" cake.
I love my 3" pans. I bake all the cake at once, then tort them. I feel like the cake comes out moister too. They're my preference now.
I also hated my 3" pans, sold them on Ebay. I do primarily wedding cakes and my iced tiers are exactly 4" so I bake (2) 2" layers and level each layer to about 1 13/16".
If you do put less batter in the pan to make a 2" cake in the 3" pan, you can have issues of the cake coming out since it has to "drop" out.
