We will be making a pillow cake on Thursday for the first time also. We went to Michaels with the 50% off and bought the pillow pans. There is a three part video by Wilton on youtube. We watched it to get an idea before we took the plunge. We will let you know how we make out. If you need to make the cake after we do, we’ll let you know all of our snags so you can avoid them!
