Wilton Cake Pans
Wilton cake pans are extremely popular and there is a very wide variety of them available on numerous outlets. I find a lot of them at Goodwill, thrift shops, and tag sales, but it is very tough to find them in excellent condition, and especially with the paper inserts. You can find a huge variety of them on eBay. If you buy them in lots you can save money and get lots of fun different kinds to use. Growing up in the 90s, I wished we would have used these but my parents never did!
The most popular Wilton cake pans are the ones that are cartoon characters like Blues Clues, Bob the Builder, and Pikachu. More generic ones like a racing car are not quite as desirable although they still will sell. It's tough to find a good cartoon one for cheap even on eBay. It's tougher to find them with the insert although you can print out the directions on their website.
If you plan to sell Wilton cake pans, I strongly encourage you to print off the directions and put them in when you sell the pans because you will get more money. If you are planning to buy cake pans but don't want to pay top dollar on eBay, just buy the ones that don't have the directions because they will be cheaper. It can be very tough to find the brand new sealed Wilton cake pans and they will be expensive!

I have a lot of the pans including old Micky, been doing cakes since '83. Taught for Wilton a year or two but did not take advantage of buying them at that time. Still bake & occasionally use the pans, intend to pass them on to Grandchildren I taught to bake & decorate. Of course I intend to use them for my Great Grandchildren first!

They should be worth more f people don't lose the instruction and color guide. It's a real pain to try and find pics of some of these.

I taught cake decorating for over 15 yrs at night school. I have over 100 pans. I am debating as to selling them in groups (Disney, baby, sports, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc.) or individually. I think Ebay would be the best way for me to sell them.

I've never had much luck selling Wilton pans in my vintage booth. Is condition a big issue such as surface marks? Obviously you don't want dents in them. I don't know if people buy them for display or just use them for baking.

I had no idea and just to think of how many I passed up at Goodwill! Baking items never appealed to me, but now I'm having second thoughts.
