Fun New Shaped Cake Pans Make Birthdays and Other Celebrations a Blast

April 23rd, 2010 by Nancy Siler

Whether you’ve got birthdays, baby showers, or upcoming summer events such as Father’s Day or baseball season, Wilton has fun, new shaped cake pans to help you bake, decorate and celebrate! There are four shapes this year…an elephant, a baseball mitt, a dump truck and a skate. The pans are made from durable aluminum for great heat distribution which results in a smooth baked cake that doesn’t have too many crumbs to deal with when you get started icing.

What I love about these new shaped pans is that they’re not just for birthdays even though they’re perfect for them. New Shaped Pans

  • Take our new Elephant shaped cake pan, for example – this adorable elephant makes for an exciting addition to birthday parties, baby showers, school celebrations and/or an outing to the local zoo.
  • The new Baseball Mitt cake pan is a big hit whether it be for opening day, birthday parties, for a team celebration, or to honor Dad on Father’s Day. Got a little builder on your hands?
  • The Dump Truck cake pan is filled with birthday fun for your little one, or perhaps for a construction company gathering!
  • For your skating fans, we have a new Skate shaped cake pan, ideal for team parties, competitions and birthdays alike.

Creating new and creative cakes for birthdays is a cinch with a shaped pan – each comes with step-by-step instructions and decorating ideas that make decorating enjoyable and easy for you and your family. You just need one cake mix per pan to begin the festivities!

And you don’t always have to bake a cake in them….try gelatin, rice cereal treats, breads, brownies, ice cream, cookies or make a candy plaque. These pans are very versatile and assured to add a kick to your celebrations, whatever the occasion may be. Be sure to browse through our new cake pan additions.

    Does Wilton make anything that you can decorate on and place it on the cake that is edible?

    • Nancy Siler says:

      I can’t think of anything available right now but stay tuned for some new items probably coming in June. Thanks

    • Elaine C. says:

      What about color flow? You can place wax paper on any design from coloring books to photos trace, fill in let dry and place it on the cake. I have used color flow for 30 years and find it easy to use. I have done Marine ball cakes with the emblem , specialty cars and cartoon characters.

    When is that Hello Kitty pan coming out?

  3. Diana Viera says:

    How soon will your pans be in stores?

    • Nancy Siler says:

      Please check with your local retailer in June. The pans are currently available in our online store.

    is there anywhere i can find a pan to make a cake with the baby lying on it’s belly with legs curled into body and little rump sticking up ?

  5. Lisa says:

    I have been looking for instructions and possibly the face plates and chest plates for the wilton Superman/Batman cake pan. I have found instructions, but the photo is blurry and small. There are no instructions on how to make the face and chest if you do not have those pieces. I hope you can help.

    Is there a year book that this specific pan is in? Maybe I can find it in an auction somewhere.


    • Nancy Siler says:

      This pan was featured in our yearbooks in the early 90′s. We do not have any of the face makers or shields available, and unfortunately, we cannot offer directions on how to create the characters. Maybe some of the bloggers can help.

  6. Kris says:


    Is this what you’re looking for?

    You could always do the badges with color flow. Quick and easy.

  11. Darcie says:

    Is there a Toy Story cake pan coming out this year to coordinate with the new Toy Story 3D movie? This is the 3rd movie of the series and you have never released a Toy Story pan – Buzz Lightyear and/or Woody would make adorable cakes and would make a lot of children happy.

  12. Crys says:

    Where can I find the instructions for the current Mickey Mouse cake pan. I found directions online for both of the discontinued cake pans but not the one that is available for purchase?

    • Nancy Siler says:

      I’ll forward this to Customer Service and our licensing product developer to see if they can help you.

  20. Devonna Dinsmore says:

    Will you be coming out with new character pans, such as the Tangled Rapunzel pan? If so, when will the Tangled Rapunzel pan be available for purchase? My little niece is having a birthday on May 30.

    • Nancy Siler says:

      Unfortunately we will not be coming out with a Rapunzel pan. You could make something similar using our wonder mold pan and some of the doll picks. She’d be 3 D! Happy Baking…Nancy
