I need to get some straight-sided cake pans.
Straight sided is the way to go especially for round pans where you won't be trimming.
A good size for a 1/4 sheet pan is 8x12 instead of 9x13, you'll get a nice, thicker cake.
I really like Parrish Magicline pans, I get them from Amazon and they are great and not too expensive.
