Eight-inch versus 9-inch versus 10-inch....
Come on ladies, get your minds out of the gutter, I'm talking about cake pans!
So for years, I thought I had two 8-inch pans and two 9-inch pans. As it turns out, after several "9-inch" pan disasters and careful measuring, I realized that, in fact, have two 9-inch pans and two 10-inch pans!
A sample of each:
How embarrassing! All these years I've been cursing the 9-inch pans when they are really 10-inchers. It wasn't their fault they produced pancakes.
Now that I have this figured out, baking life should be much easier. Plus, Mr. Z got me two REAL 8-inch pans for my birthday. Now I have just about everything I need!
