Fancy buttercream flourishes topped with nonpareil gumdrops make this dainty cake look grand. Fill a five-inch cake pan with two cups of your favorite batter, then cut finished cake in half horizontally to form layers. Bake leftover batter into mini cupcakes.

    You can also find a 6" at most any cake decorating store.

    Hey there Diane, you should be able to purchase a 5" cake pan at Sur La Table. They have a fabulous cake baking and decorating section. And I've seen that size pan there. Good luck!
