I have the stand up 3D Wilton Jack o lantern cakepan but I really don't like it!! thumbsdown.gif It stands vertical and you have to skewer it to stay up icon_mad.gif .I was looking for one that the layers sit flatter and horizontal like the William Sonoma 3D Pumpkin.Does anyone have one there are willing to sell or somewhere online I can buy one...I checked ebay already!! I have 2 orders for 3D Pumpkin cakes for Halloween and I don't want to use the wilton pan as it is too unsteady!! I also tried looking for a smaller 7-8 inch silicone pan but ther are almost as much money as a aluminum pan..Any thoughts!!

USE bundt cake pans! make 2 and flip one on top of the other. Makes a perfect pumpkin shape!

Ooh. I love the idea of bundt pans. So ingenious,these folk on CC. icon_biggrin.gif
I have the Wilton and it works fine for me. But.....if I was gonna get another, I would definitely choose the WIlliams and Sonoma pan over a silicone. I have several of their pans for shaped cakes and they are so beautiful and heavy.....work great every time.
I have had no luck with silicone pans. Usually the stuff sticks inside them and I've actually had a few people tell me that they taste a "plasticy" taste after the fact. Hmmmm.....
Good luck. I wish I was making a Halloween cake. I just love Halloween.
