Whenever I see a 3D pan, I usually have to fight the urge to buy. Especially the Willam Sonoma ones. I love them, but don't really use them after I buy them. Does anyone have a 3D pan that they love and use alot? I have a Christmas pan, a house I think, that I use every Christmas. I make a chocolate cake and sprinkle powdered sugar and I looks really pretty. Just wondering. I getting ready to make the Giant Cupcake and was just curious about all the other 3D pans out there.
i got a snowman for christmas... i will be honest and say i might not use more then a handful of times, which is a shame because it's such a good quality pan and was pretty pricey, but i might use for a 3D chocolate mold for a centerpiece. i also have a mini teddy bear pan and i got it for 3$ and thats the only reason why i bought it. I love the cupcake pan tho and i can see myself using it quite alot because its cute and people love it. I haven't seen any pans that i would think that i MUST have. I am comfortable with carving if i need to.
I love, love, LOVE the giant cupcake pan. It's so darn cute. Man, I want to make one now!
I don't use 3D pans too much although once in awhile they come in handy.
I think of all my 3D pans I like the Christmas Tree the best because it makes an easy fun centerpiece for Christmas, and people find it impressive.
I love the little mini stand-up bear by Wilton. I used it for my son's first birthday smash cake and decorated it as Pooh. I made little "Santa bears" at Christmas and people loved those. It is very versatile, and with having a little one, its fun to make a bear for him as he gets a kick out of it!
My fave is the Wilton ball cake pan - sooo many uses! Oh, and the Wilton 1/2 soccer ball. I'm thinking of buying the 3D house next.
