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.

I adore all things mini, so it would be the teeny weeny pans for me! I'm on a fairly hardcore diet right now trying to lose some baby weight, but I could eat a teeny tiny cake, right? LOL

What a great pan aisle! I would love to get some spring form pans (to make cheesecake or ice cream cakes!) and a bundt cake pan… or maybe some mini-bundt cake pans!

That store is making me drool! I LOVE the bread pans. I have one now, but desperately want at least one more. SO much better than a loaf pan when making bread. Seems silly, but it's true. :)

I want ALL of the pans. In fact, I'm terribly jealous of you because I can't find a lovely baking store in our area. Boo!

Aside from that, I love making mini versions of my desserts. I'd love to have some mini-cupcake pans, or mini-tart pans. Anything teenie. :)

I go through Atlanta often – I am so going to find this store! I absolutely LOVE seeing all of the stuff that they offer… I'm not sure which pan I would pick but I'll think on it :-)

Christina said...

I would love a set of graduated heart-shaped pans! Or maybe a teddy bear pan! Or, ooh, the movable block pan! Wow, I need to find a baking supply store near me…

Oops Creations said...

mmm so many choices. Do they have any flexible silicone pans/molds? I'd take those 1st and then one of the shaped bundt pan or that one you show with the interchangeable cubes (tetris cake anyone?!?)

Jes said...

Oh I love this store! I am so glad that you have been posting about it. I have been looking for the little teeny-tiny cake pans. I just love them. Perfect size for everything you would want to try out.

I would love to win the graduated pans. I could make one really big cake or make a whole lot of different sized cakes to give away!

Mindy said...

Choices choices! I guess I'd have to go with some cupcake pans (big or small, or a variety of all!) because I'm getting married at Christmas, and instead of cake we're doing cupcakes! And hearts. Little heart cakes would be adorable.

If I went in there I'd need a bigger kitchen! My favorite of all of them was the ice cream shaped cupcake pans, those are too adorable.

Nina said...

I would be totally broke if there was something like this near my house! Last time I moved, my beloved springform pan got a dent so horrible that I couldn't knock it back out. A replacement would be kickin'.

kgirl said...

Well, I just about fell off the chair when I saw those ice cream cone cupcake pans, so sign me up for those. Especially since I just killed my mini-muffin pan by forgetting about them in the oven this weekend while I got distracted drinking a beer – er, talking – with the neighbours. Poor little muffins. Never saw it coming.

Wow that is cool… I may have to make a trip to Atlanta to see all this for myself. :) I am torn between the pan with the square cakes and the big graduated pans… hmmmm….

Melanie said...

Something about seeing all those similar, but different pans sends thrills through me. How fun would it be to open your own cupboard and have it look like that. Those ice cream cone cupcake pans are totally my favorite (but the hexagon pans would be pretty sweet too!)

That is so many pans! Wonderful!!!! I would love that one to make any number too cute! I work in a kindergarten class and how neat would that be. Or those tiny cascading round pans that you hold in one hand. So neat!

I wish I had a store like this in Maryland! I went to the website and absolutely love the bouquet pan, making little cakes as flowers. That would look beautiful with a strawberry cake and some powdered sugar! Thanks for the giveaway! I'm crossing my fingers :)

OMG I forgot about the pan aisle there. I could spend several whole paycheck just in that aisle alone. In fact, I think I did spend a whole paycheck in that aisle. But I DO NOT remember that ice cream cone cupcake pan. I want that one. That is so cool. That would bring my cupcakes up to a whole other level. How delicious is that????

Thank you for doing this little expose on one of my FAVORITE stores ever!!!!

Wow – I don't think I'd be allowed in that store.

I've been trying to find a rectangular tart pan (preferably with removable bottom) for a while now – perhaps now is my chance? But those little mini pans might be too cute to pass up.

It's probably a good thing I don't have a store like this near me because:

1) I would spend all of my money there (Mortgage? what Mortage?)

2) I would never leave.

I'd probably go with the graduated pans, but one of the special shapes like stars. Or, a cute cupcake pan! Oh, the possiblities…
