    You are my hero! Perfect timing! I make my husband a chocolate/peanut butter treat of some sort every year for his birthday. I’ve been making him the peanut butter cake from Bakerella’s site for a while now, but looking forward to trying a new one! I tried to find this pan at my grocery store, but couldn’t find one deep enough. Maybe Amazon….

    Wow! This looks amazing? But, I can’t find the 10″x3″ pan anywhere. Do you know where she bought it? Or, what brand it was? I have been looking everywhere for a cake like this! Thank you!
