Cheap foil pans in Boston

So I'm looking to make a 14-layer cake for a friend ( and need to get foil pans. I'm trying to avoid having the pans cost more than the cake ingredients. Does anyone know where I can get some reasonably priced foil pans in the area? I'm thinking something of the dollar store nature...

  1. There is a dollar store in Chinatown next door to Penang on Washington st that sells them dirt cheap.

      I will have to go there after work. Thanks!!

    2. Couldn't you just help yourself to some at a salad bar or take out?... or at least ask how much they'll sell them for?

      BTW - that cake looks amazing. You're freind is very lucky!

        Yeah I thought about that but 14 or even 12 is a lot. Plus more places use those rectangular plastic containers than anything else.

      2. try hy-sil in revere. the foil pans are in the back of the store

          I think just about any dollar store carries them for much cheaper than you'll find them for in the supermarket.

        2. Ended up going to the dollar store in Chinatown. Thanks for the suggestion!
