There is a business that rents cake pans where I live. Have you checked to see if there is anything like that in your area? Some party rental places also rent cake pans.

I’ve bought from http://www.shopbakersnook.com/69.html in the past… square pans to make a “king kong on empire states building” cake for my munchkin… lol

they aren’t too bad priced and they’re pretty good… I’m happy with them =)

A tip from a friend of mine who makes cakes….

get a package of jello pudding (of the same flavor as the cake) put it in the mix and cook the cake on 250 for longer than the time it says on the box. The cake comes out soooo moist and cook more evenly aka no having to cut the top off (or atleast as much)

I’ve tried this ^ once and it was great!

Kohls.  I would go with spring form pans, they are the easiest to work with.  I have gotten most of mine there but some have come from the local grocery stores, tuesday morning, marshalls, and tjmaxx.  If you want to PM me, I can give you some tricks that will make it alot easier.  My mom used to make wedding cakes and I still make them for alot of friends and family just for fun.

walmart is the cheapest, buy 3 or 4 rounds/squares that have at least a 2″ difference,

ex. 6″, 8″, 10″, 12″ and stack the cakes! Marshmellow fondant is hard to work with, I make one with glycerine (google recipes) and you can find glycerin at michaels and then flavor it any flavor you like!

I make fondant cakes on the side and you can’t go wrong with the glycerin fondant, or use satin ice fondant (but that’s a bit pricey)

Thanks @amnystik – it seems that the largest springform pan is only 10″… I guess if I want to make a tiered cake with springform pans, it’ll have to be 4″ 6″ 8″ 10″.
