A Beautiful Pumpkin Bread Pan

I'm about to do a coupon-ing post, but first I have to show off my new bread making pan! I've been baking breads like crazy (we're going to have a jewelry/rosary/knit/crochet booth in the upcoming harvest festival in a couple weeks and I'm going to have a few breads for sale too) and thought this would make the breads a little extra special!

I was stopping by Michael's before Paul's surgery to pick up more orange and green yarn (I've been crocheting cute little pumpkin hats) and this pan caught my eye. It was $29.99, but I happened to have a 40% off coupon for any item in the store from the Sunday paper, and since my yarn was on sale and the coupon couldn't be used with it I decided to splurge and use it on this pan (it knocked the price down to $17.99, which still felt REALLY pricy to me, but I'm hoping to make it back on the breads I bake with it!).

I just hope my bread looks as lovely as the bread on the coverage of the package it came in. I have a feeling it may take a bit of practice!

I have four new pumpkin bread recipes to try out (I've been on a banana bread spree, and I was planning on baking tea bread next, but this pan may bump pumpkin bread into the next baking slot), so hopefully I'll have some beautiful pumpkin bread pictures soon!


  1. I don't know if this will help but I took a baking class at Michael's and they have this gel (at least I think it's a gel) that you brush on all the indentations and then cover it with flour (make sure there is no spot missing flour). This way when you're done baking, the decoration on the top will be perfect because the bread, cake, etc. won't stick to the pan.

    If you'd like, I can find the name of it.

  2. Thank you! If it's not too much trouble I'd love to know the name! I was thinking of making sure I'd gotten margarine everywhere really well, so maybe I'll try it once coating the margarine with flour too to see if that works! I'm pretty new to baking so any and all tips are appreciated!

  3. Ok, so maybe I was wrong about the flouring part lol but here it is!,default,pd.html?cgid=products-bakeware-wilton&start=420

  4. Thank you so much! I'll go check it out!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
