I was recently watching a cake decorating show and I am very interested in something I saw - They baked a large sheet cake and then used what appeared to be cake pans with no bottoms to cut out the number of rounds they needed - any ideas where I can find those? I only have a regular oven and baking several rounds is a pain - this would save a TON of time!
They are called cake rings and I know you can get them at chefrubber.com...but beware they are more expensive than most cake pans because they are stainlees steel and most cake pans are regular ol aluminum.
I think you are talking about cake rings. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000VC037M/?tag=cakecentral-20
They come in all kinds of sizes.
Also check out cooksdream.com.
I've seen many closing bakeries sell those for a really cheap price.
You'd want to figure out what the biggest sheet you could fit in your oven was, though, before you decided to invest. I just have a regular oven and I can fit a 10", 8" and 6" in there at the same time, all on the top shelf. Also, you'd end up with a lot of waste from the pieces between the rounds you cut.
