If you enjoy cake decorating, you can make an extra-special cake for an event, holiday, or just for fun by borrowing a cake pan from the Batavia Public Library.
Show off your decorating flair with one of the our novelty, character, and special-sized cake pans available with your Batavia Public Library card. For a preview of the pans, join us on Aug. 24 at 2 p.m. when we’ll be sampling cake. The new collection of cake pans will be available for borrowing as of Aug. 25. This new collection is thanks to a collaboration with Batavia Girl Scouts Addison LaManna and Genevieve Canal.
