Having an aluminum cake pan on hand is necessary for every kitchen. They will get the most use due to their versatility and ease of cleanup. Some people will only use aluminum cake pans since they know how they bake and can get the same results each time. This consistency is extremely important when you bake often, and knowing what to expect will help you improve your skills and bake more frequently. In this post I want to take a look at some different types of aluminum cake pans and show you where to get them for the best price.
Almost all of Wilton’s and Nordic Ware’s shaped cake pans are made from aluminum. The cake pans from Wilton are usually from a thin type and Nordic Ware’s are from a heavy cast aluminum. Both work equally great, but I’m convinced that the heavy cast aluminum allows more detail to come through in your cake.
The aluminum tube cake pan is also very common. These are also called fluted or bundt cake pans. Aluminum is the obvious material for these since it heats evenly and allows the cake to bake through the tube.
If you’re looking for the best prices online for aluminum cake pans there are two places that can consistently deliver. Amazon.com and eBay are both known for their excellent prices, and that includes shaped cake pans. Amazon is the best choice when you need to get multiple things and get it all shipped with a great price. eBay is the choice when all you need is a cheap cake pan.
