Somewhere during my browsing of this huge and wonderfull forum, I stumbled across some files showing different cake pans and the amount of mix that would go in each. I am looking for 8x3" round cake ideas. I am very new to the cake decorating field. I have done some character cakes with the Wilton Shaped pans in the past, but looking to advance to other avenues. I am in NO way in the same league with most of you. The pictures astound me and make me want to do more and more. Thanks for inspirations and any help to my question. Or if some one can point me to a beginners forum.

Here is a link to Wilton's chart. Does your pan have instructions with it. Most pans come with batter amounts & baking times.
