Product Description

Amazon.com

He wants chocolate, she wants vanilla....now they can both get their wish with Wilton's checkerboard cake pan set. This clever four-part system uses a simple dividing ring and three pans to stack up an eye-catching, crowd-pleasing treat. Simply place the plastic ring inside one of the 9-by-2-inch pans and fill in the nine sections with two alternating flavors of batter. Remove the ring and place it in the next pan, filling in the opposite pattern for the middle layer. Repeat the step for the third pan, then bake all three cakes in the oven. Once they're cool, simply set one layer on top of the next to create the cheerful checkerboard of flavors. The nonstick steel construction is the optimal metal for the job as it offers even heat distribution while baking, corrosion resistance for years of service, and easy, convenient cleanup in the dishwasher. Extra-wide handles provide cool, mess-free lifting and handling, and each pan holds a generous 5-1/2 cups of batter. Fun for kids' parties, holiday themes, or experimenting with new taste combinations (why limit it to two?), this pan set will bring out the artist in any baker-also included is a recipe booklet to get the ideas rolling. --Kara Karll

This cake pan set is beautiful, and works well for beautiful cakes, very impressive at parties.
M. Johnston
It does not evenly fit the bottom or reach the sides properly so that it slides around when you try to put the batter in, creating a smeared layer effect.
B. Dickson
In my work I will be very helpful and I will recommend, with all products of this prestigious brand.

I purchased this set not from Amazon but from my local Michael's store - convinced by the packaging that it would be easy to make a presentable cake using their instructions.

Used two Duncan Hines cake mixes instead of recipe on box - packaging says you don't have to use their recipe so that seemed safe enough. Reading other reviews, it appears that may have been a bad idea, as the Wilton recipe is a stiffer batter. Box should have included notes to that effect.

As mentioned by another reviewer, the divider insert does not fit firmly at all - it should hook over the edges of the pan for better stability or something - even when I weighted the insert down with a soup can, pouring the batter in made it slide around and leak into other layers.

Lifting the insert out using the tabs per instructions was a mess. On the 2nd pan, I tried coating the insert with Pam spray first which helped a bit.

The tip about pouring your batter into pastry bag or ziploc bag to pipe into pans helped quite a bit and was a good tip.

Summary:
The pans themselves seemed fine, decent non-stick coating and handles make them easier to move in/out of oven. The insert fits loosely at best and is flimsy. I had to throw out the cake and make a standard layer cake instead because the batter did not in any way stay in the intended circles. Was a waste of $$ and will be donating to Goodwill, maybe someone else will have better luck.

I think having a kit to create a checkerboard cake is a great idea, but for a company that specializes in decorating, it seems odd that they included nonstick pans that have sloped sides instead of basic aluminum pans with straight sides. Wilton makes some nice cake pans but these aren't it. I would gladly pay extra for pans that are more appropriate to creating a three layer cake. Because of the pans being nonstick, it was very difficult to make the divider insert stay in place while adding the batter. I would not recommend this product to anyone wanting to make a nice looking cake.

I was disappointed by the insert in this cake pan. It does not evenly fit the bottom or reach the sides properly so that it slides around when you try to put the batter in, creating a smeared layer effect. The pans themselves are a fine quality but it's really hard to work with. I've tried several times, with someone holding the insert to try and keep it from sliding and I've ended up with off-center, smeared layers and weird looking cakes. It would really work better if the insert clipped down to the pan. The plastic is too light and the batter "lifts" it as you put it in.

I was grateful for all of the reviews and advice submitted by others. Had I read them before purchasing the pans, I might not have bought them. Since I had already bought them and a few cake mixes, I decided to give this checkerboard cake a try.

Forewarned about the issues with the lightweight plastic center, I used 1" pieces of clear plastic packing tape to tape the center firmly down so that it couldn't rise up when the batter was added. I taped over about a half-inch of the outside edge of each "spoke" and lightly affixed the tape over the side of the pan. Once the batter was poured, I loosened the tape from the pan only, leaving it attached to the center insert so that I wouldn't disturb the batter while trying to remove tape from the white plastic. It worked like a charm.

I used ziploc bags with a hole cut in the corner to pipe the batter into the pans. I used Duncan Hines Orange and Devil's Food mixes, and they worked fine together; I was a little concerned about differences in consistency when I saw that one required less water than the other, but there was not a problem.

It would be great if the next checkerboard cake adventurer would figure out exactly how much batter to pour in each section of the three pans, and post the findings. Filling "2/3 full" didn't quite do it for me, as I was concerned about having enough batter for the inner and outer circles of the two cakes that were alike.

I saw references here to a recipe on the box that might be used for good results, but if there is one on my box, it's very well hidden.

My older sister bought this for me as a birthday gift, (I bake....a lot)and i was super excited. But before I even used the product you KNOW as an intelligent human that thick batter will move that flimsy plastic insert (that has so side clips or rubberized edge to stop batter bleeding)in a nanosecond. In short- this product can NEVER be used as intended with a perfect result.

However, if you're like me and refuse to be bettered by something as sad as this, you take a different approach. Using this insert as a "cookie cutter" of sorts will product the perfect cut outs to assemble a perfectly executed checkerboard cake. Hence at least 2 stars.

Hope it helps

This makes such a neat look when the cakes are layered together! The pan is typical mostly non-stick (still recommend some spray or flour). It takes a little practice to move the divider into the next pain without "smearing" your batter, but once everything is layered together it creates a very appealing checkerboard look. I would recommend using your own batter/recipe - the recipe that comes with the set (to be more stiff for the divider) doesn't have much flavor.
