i jsut realized that this pan doesn;t fit my oven. Do they make it in halfs?? also how often have you baked a 16" round or larger? does anyone own a regular kitchen oven that will fit this pan?

I bought a 16" round without measuring first icon_redface.gif . I just turned it every 15 minutes or so to get it to bake even. It actually baked pretty decent. My sister also suggested I use tin foil or something to prop up the front so it sits even. If you haven't used it yet, try to return it and buy the halves. But, with a little creativity it can work. Good luck and let me know if you come up with any other ideas icon_smile.gif .

I just baked a 16 inch this past weekend for a wedding cake and it fit in my oven. I have a regular GE smooth top range in my home. I would not be able to bake anything larger though. It cooked fairly quickly. I placed the flower nail in the middle of it and it came out even and beautiful. The bride was happy!

My experience w/half rounds has not been good.
They don't actually come out 'round' but more ovalicon_sad.gif
I've had 16" & 18" rounds and both resulted in the slightly oval shape. You end up having to bake another cake & cut a 1" strip to make the cake round.

At home, my double oven is made by Whirlpool and I have used a 16 inch pan in it but nothing larger would fit. I now bake my cakes in a licensed kitchen and those ovens hold ANYTHING!
