I am looking to buy some 6" square cake pans, prob. 2" high. Does anyone has a suggestion as far as brand? I see Magic Line, Wilton, Fat Daddios and I have only ever used Wilton but I see there are many different brands and prices. Any suggestions as to what to buy and wehre to buy it at? THANKS!!

I use magic line and won't use anything else for sharp corners. The fat daddio pans are nice but I don't like the square because they are more rounded in the corner. Easier to clean that way, but I prefer the cake to have a sharp edge before I ice it. Just makes it easier on me.

I like Lloyd pans. http://www.lloydpans.com/C-1000069/Square+Cake+Pans

Nice sharp corners and they are reasonably priced.

omg. just got my magic line pans and LOVE them! I don't even use bake even strips because they are such a nice soild pan. anyone else forget the strips with these pans. I have the wilton ones and just hate them. when you pick up the bigger ones the stupid pans bend is you don't have an even grip. That doesn't happen with magic line. I also got mine at global sugar art!

for square pans you can't beat magic line. I love their 1/2 sheet pan.

For incredible straight, crisp edges, magic line is the only way to go on square pans! You'll be amazed at the difference!!! Worth the extra $.

I have square and rectangular pans from Lloyds, Magic Line, and Wilton Decorator Preferred.

I find no difference whatsoever in the way they bake or clean.

For price, I believe that Lloyds is always cheaper.

That said, IF you can find older (used) Magic Line or Wilton Decorator Preferred pans, they are the best of the bunch--much heavier than those made more recently.
