Pantastic!

I didn’t bake anything this weekend. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I think I was still in vacation mode or something. So I guess this is as good a time as any to close out the “Where I Shop” series. This is part 3: PANS! And Cake Art Party Store has a ton of them.

I love this store.

PANS

The cake pan aisle just makes me smile, despite it’s overwhelmingly gray disposition. It just makes me happy. I like to think about all the talented people that walk through here in need of the perfect cake pan and the things they create with them. Take all these graduated cake pan sets for instance… I’m in awe of what serious bakers and wedding cake decorators can do with them.

But layer cake pans aren’t the only kind of pan Cake Art carries.

Loaf Pans

There are loaf pans…

Bread Pans

… not to be confused with bread pans.

Bundt Pans

Bundt-style pans in various designs.

Angel Food Cake Pans

Angel food cake pans.

Tartlet Pans

Tartlet pans. (Fat Daddio’s… they even have a cute name.)

Doughnut Pans

Doughnut pans. I should get one of these for the next time I try dougnuts.

Square Muffin Pans

How about some square pans. Or… regular, mini and jumbo-size muffin pans.

Small Graduated Pans

But, when it comes to cake pans, I love these little graduated ones that you can hold in one hand.

Graduated Pans

And, then there’s these. These are much, much bigger. I don’t know how big they actually go, but I’ve seen some as big as 18 inches wide and 3 and 4 inches deep. That is a serious cake. I think my oven would be scared.

Heart Pans

But, the graduated sets aren’t all round. There are heart pans, hexagon pans, square pans, and oval pans… all available in different sizes.

Teddy Bear Pans

But maybe you just want one pan. How about a sweet teddy bear? In pink, though.

Shaped Pans

What about a butterfly? Care Bear? Spiderman?

Ice Cream Cone Pan

Or maybe you want individual ice cream-shaped cupcake pans. Too cute!

Mini Pans

Or maybe you want a collection of itty-bitty, teeny-weeny, baby-size pans. I want one of each myself. For scale, that’s a container of sprinkles on the left. These ARE cuteness!

Cookie Sheet Pans

What?!?! You don’t want any cake pans? Well, they also have cookie sheet pans. So there.

Number Pan

And, if that weren’t enough, they have pans that try to tempt me to buy them – even though I would probably never use them. This one has blocks you can move around to let you make numbers and letters. I’ve seen it in a large size, but not one this tiny. Again, CUTENESS! I hate this store.

If that’s not enough, they have even more pans.
And, now for some fun.

It’s a Pick a Pan Giveaway!
  • Enter for a chance to win the pan of your choice.
  • Just leave a comment on this post and pick out the kind of pan you want from any of the above. That’s right. You get to pick. Need some jumbo-size muffin pans? Want to try out a set of graduated pans? Hearts? Hexagons? Or maybe you just need some plain old cupcake pans. I know, you really want an assortment of teeny-tiny pans.
  • Well, if you win, I’ll get it for you, or as many as I can get for you with a $50 bill. Sound like fun?
  • Leave your comment with a way for me to contact you if you win (either a blog link or email)
  • Deadline to enter is Tuesday, July 14th at 5 p.m. TIME’S UP! WINNER ANNOUNCED BELOW. (recorded by the time stamp of your comment) The winner will be announced sometime Tuesday evening on this post.

* One winner will be chosen using the Random.org integer generator.

Good luck!

Man… you guys like pans! I didn’t think this giveaway would be that fun because it was so, well, so gray. But, I’m glad you had fun entering. Now for the winner…


Congrats Melissa! You’re definitely getting a set of graduated pans. YAY! And I’ll try to throw in a square muffin pan for you, too. I’ll see how far $50 goes.

Is it bad that I don't know what I need (or want) I'm just getting into baking and your blog is wonderful. So far I've made the bourbon cupcakes and the brownies with pb cups.

With all of that said, I have a bundt pan, angel food pan, cookie sheets, and muffin tins. The rest are glass or ceramic which I heard aren't good for baking … so maybe just a starter set of round and rectangle?

I just love the last set of pans you showed..the blocks that can be moved around to make shapes/numbers. That is so cool, and I am seriously jealous that I don't have a store like that near me.

Thanks for the photos.

My mum started to make and decorate cakes as a hobby about 15 years ago and has become really very good. She inspires me to try, and so for my daughter's first birthday, I bought a super cute, but huge cup cake shape pan, it was a total success…I still have a long way to go but know that with practice I will improve. Thank you for also being a huge inspiration to me, I have tried a few of your recipes and can't wait to try more. The cake pans all look fantastic!

I would love the cupcake ice cream cones, or any of the mini-minis, or the cool ones to make letters and numbers because my toddler is very into spelling his name. I'd be pretty happy with anything because I have a limited supply of cake pans.

Yes, I'm late, but you never know. I'm simple – a set of 2 9" or 8" round cake pans. OR, a flat cookie sheet. My needs are simple.

Anything mini! I'm obsessed with tiny things, and I love baking such! I got a book at few weeks ago with 94 recipes of mini sweet treats, including brownies, cookies, cakes, tarts, and anything your little heart could desire! Having the pans to cook them all up would make MY little heart go pitter-pat! Come on, lucky 4151! :)

That store looks amazing! I wish we had a place like that here. Our budget would be in sooo much trouble, so I guess it is better that we don't. But if we did, I would definitely get s square muffin/bar pan. I've been wanting one of those ever since I first saw on, on someones blog. And if I had any left over, I would get a mini springform pan. I love all things mini by the way. You are very generous!

I just love your blog- I know out of all these people I don't stand a chance- but I wanted to tell you how creative and insightful and talented I think you are. Your blog is like a mini vacation for me- a retreat from the stress of the world. Thanks for sharing it all with us….but just in case I do win…I adore baby pans- any thing miniature I think is so adorable- that's why I am addicted to your little cutie cupcake pops- too too cute;) (myashtyn@yahoo.com)

Dear Backerella,
I always love your blogs about the great cake supply stores you have in the States, but since I life in The Netherlands I can only dream about this kind of shopping…but now I am in NY state(Tarrytown) on a family visit, so could you please give me some great tips on Manhattan supply stores? We will also go to DC, Houston and maybe Atlanta(Marietta) later on, so if you have any tips?? Thank you!Greetings from Nicole! P.s. Isn't jetlag great? Everyone is still asleep and I get to read you blog online,jippy!!

I live in Atlanta also, McDonough actually, and love Cake Art. My mom & I used to go to the store when it was still on Memorial Drive. I equate going to Cake Art to my husband going to Bass Pro Shop….."surely there is something in here I can use!"….and "surely I'll find a reason to use this!". I love that store, I'm thankful that I'm still 30 minutes from it, any closer and I'd be in trouble!!

They either fall off the stick, crack when put into vanilla bark, are dry and won't make good balls, are too wet and still crumble. Please help. Yours are so beautiful, round and stay on the stick. We are trying very hard and want to have some success. Please help us!!

As best as I can tell one has angled edges and one has straight. I'm sure the straight one has something to do with yeast rising as opposed to baking. But I've never made bread so your guess is as good as mine.

To be honest… I would love any of the pans from the teny tiny to the graduals. I am just starting my collection of pans and really don’t have very many to pick from. Or how about the hexigon ones. I love to try different things. I even tried to make the topsy turvy and had problems, but will not stop yet. It is relaxing to bake.

Thank you again for everything you do – I’m a baking student that is trying to conquer my issue with thinking “outside of the box” and your blog has helped inspire me!

Where did you find the little flower cutter for the cupcake pops? I found a small cookie cutter, gradulated sizes but its still too large. I found that when I rolled the cake balls into rolls that they were too small for the cutter. You can’t make them too big. I love your website. Also where can I find the Martha Stewart segment on the cupcake pop? I could watch it every day. Thanks
