Make a cake to remember, right down to the letter! By rearranging the inserts that come with the Letters and Numbers Cake Pan, you can create cakes in the shape of all 26 letters of the alphabet or any number 0 through 9. It’s a-b-c easy as 1, 2, 3!
Great for sports-themed parties, monogram cakes, graduations and milestone birthday celebrations, this cake pan is super easy to use once you know how it works. Let’s dive into some common questions about how to use the Letters and Numbers Cake Pan.
HOW DOES THIS PAN WORK?
The Letters and Numbers Cake Pan comes with a 9 x 14.5 in. baking pan, eight inserts and one cutter. The baking pan features a 6 x 10 grid that helps keep inserts secure and prevents batter from seeping through.
The inserts come in four square and rectangular shapes. All you need to do is arrange the inserts as shown on the instruction sheet (included with the pan) to obtain the shape you want! If you’ve misplaced your instructions, you can find them online here.
The triangle-shaped cake cutter can be used to trim edges into precise angles for decorating. The instructions also show how to trim your cake to obtain the letter or number you desire.
WHAT LETTERS, NUMBERS OR SHAPES CAN I MAKE WITH THIS PAN?
Any letter or number you want! The Letters and Numbers Cake Pan can be used to make letters A through Z, as well as numbers 0 through 9. You can also arrange the inserts to make various shapes, such as robots, animals, exclamation points, question marks and dollar signs.
HOW MUCH BATTER DO I NEED?
Since every number and letter cake is a different size, it’s hard to say how much batter you’ll need to make every cake. We suggest starting with two cake mixes and filling the pan until it’s 2/3 full. If you have leftover batter, you can make some cupcakes to go along with your dessert!
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL ONE CAKE SERVE?
Again, since every cake shape is different, it’s hard to say for sure. A general cake serving size is about 1½ to 2 in. wide, so you can use that to measure out how many servings your cake will yield.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE PAN?
Your Letters and Numbers Cake Pan should come with instructions included; however, if you’ve misplaced them, you can find the instructions online here.

A FEW MORE TIPS AND TRICKS
- You may notice that some of the letters and numbers will appear backwards in the pan – that is because you will flip the cake over after baking.
- For easier release, be sure to spray the pan and the inserts with non-stick cooking spray.
- For bake time and temperature, follow the instructions on your cake recipe. Keep in mind that smaller cakes may be done baking quicker than the recipe states, and larger cakes may take a bit longer to bake. When a toothpick inserted into the center of your cake comes out clean, your cake is done!
