Topic: Teddy Bear Topsy Turvy/Fat Daddio's Mad Dadder Pans
riverchild 03/17/2012 8:15 PM
This was my first time using Fat Daddio's Mad Dadder pans. I LOVE THEM!!! This is an eight and a 6 inch tier. I added a 2 inch high layer to bottom of each tier for added heighth. I just stacked the 6 inch right on top of the 8 inch. No carving a well out. It is iced in buttercream with fondant accents. I put 2 dowels thru both tiers for added support. Had no problems travelling 1 hour away. I've had these pans for six months and finally decided to use them. I have ordered the 10 inch to add to my collection. Globalsugarart.com has them on sale right now. Bears are made out of fondant. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

pasteles...I read the thread on cake central but I have to disagree with it. I baked mine at 325 without flower nails or any type of heating core. It baked really even and I didn't have to trim anything. I wish I had taken pictures. I also had no problem with the cake being hard or overcooked on the shorter side. I have nothing but good things to say about the pans. Have you tried the pans yet? Maybe whoever posted that on CC didn't bake it at the right temp or something.

I did a practice topsy turvy today and I used the Mad Dadder cake pans too. I had problems with the 6 inch tier after I filled it. I was trying to cover it in fondant but it kept sliding down. I had a good stiff dam, so I am not sure why it kept sliding apart. Any ideas on what I can do to prevent this again? I gave up for now but tomorrow i was going to try and use RI to glue it together.

beanie70-thanks for the input. It seems a 50/50 split. Love them or have problems. I will probably still buy them because the end result is really lovely.

That is so cute!

I bought a set of 3 pans (larger sizes, wish I had the 6") last summer and have yet to have the nerve to try them. I got them because they were a great ebay deal.

I may just try them now, thanks! And great job.

Out of curiosity, did you use a box mix and if so, did you add anything to sturdy them? I almost always use box mix straight up.

thanks.
riverchild 04/19/2012 8:36 PM
vthorse, I always doctor my mix. Lol, I never use a straight mix. I honestly couldn't tell you if it would be sturdy enough.

devildawgzmom, I don't torte and fill mine. I added a layer to the bottom of each tier and didn't have a problem. I covered mine in buttercream, not fondant though.
vthorse 04/20/2012 9:28 AM
I would use buttercream as well. There IS a big party being planned to honor a community member this summer...hmmm. Now you've got me thinking!
