Nice heavy pan, good and sturdy, doesn't look or feel like a cheap novelty item, it is definitely built for real use.
That said, I've found that this pan excels at making cakes for any time of year (long as you can look past the fact they're coffin shaped). Each one is pretty much exactly the right size for one generous serving of cake, and that rim around the outside means it holds the icing right in the middle with a cake border all the way around to keep it in place. Means you can pick the whole thing up and eat it as oversized finger food as opposed to having to carry a plate and fork, its been a blast at parties so far.
Only thing that keeps if from a 5 star rating for me is that it is just barely too small for doing all of one standard cake mix in. Don't get me wrong, you can easily put the whole mix in there and it will contain it all without dripping in the oven, but your mix will rise up past the top quite a bit and require you to trim it back down. If it had been just a quarter inch deeper it would have been perfect.
But hey, this way I get to make goodies for everybody else, and nobody knows how much of the cake I get to eat myself when I'm cutting off the bottoms. ;)
While the Snickerdoodle muffins are still warm from the pan, you roll them on all sides in cinnamon sugar. Oh how beautiful these Snickerdoodle hearts are with a glistening of cinnamon sugar all over. And oh how delicious. My mouth waters as I think of them.
If you like to bake muffins or cupcakes, you'll really like this pan. Wilton bakeware is manufactured in China and while I do prefer to buy products made in the USA, the nonstick factor of Wilton is reliable for both perfect turn-out and easy clean-up. The only thing that disappoints me is that after several baking projects in a 350 oven, my Wilton pans have warped slightly. I also noticed how easily the pans get dented and scratched even though I am very careful in my handling. Therefore I must rate this pan 4 stars. Up against my USA-made Nordic Ware there is just no comparison. Nordic Ware is definitely superior to Wilton.
The heart is an apt metaphor for my baking - I love to bake, I love to test gluten-free vegan recipes, and I especially love to bake for my dear ones. I bake from the heart... so what better shape for my baking pans?
The only complaint - and it's pretty minor, really - is that after you have the first crust fitted in, there isn't much space between the cavities to lay the second crust down on the top of the pan to start fitting it into the cavity.
I do have these tips to offer: after you cut the crusts (I used a 6 inch cookie cutter that was just a little bit too big) layer them with waxed paper or parchment between them and chill them. Caveat: too much chilling and they will break as you try to fit them into the cavity; too little chilling and they just flop around. So, experiment with how long it takes to get the crust just right for you. And after all six are fitted in the pan, chill them again before baking. Just 10 or 15 minutes is enough time. I found I could fit two in at a time before the dough got too soft (of course my kitchen may have been warmer than yours - that's a factor, too) and I had to refrigerate the dough and the pan for a few minutes before proceeding.
All in all, though, I love this pan. Have more dough chilling even as I type.

I love the result, but be prepared for a steep learning curve when making anything that looks nice. The top ridges cook faster than the rest of the cavity, making the end result... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Kelley Schulze
