1) Do a practice run if you are using it for an important event and use exactly what you used for your practice run! -- I did a practice chocolate cake and it turned out PERFECT!! For the day of the event I switched to vanilla cake - I don't know if it was the vanilla or bad luck, but the day of my cake was a nightmare!! Practice!
2) When using boxed cake mix, use about 2 boxes -- I have made this cake 3 times with 3 different versions of cake mix and every time I used 2 boxes each run. Your batter may rise over the pan, but once your cake has cooled just use dental floss to drag over the top and even out the base of the cake.
3) For me this cake takes about 90-120 minutes to bake all the way through. I set my oven for an hour and then check with a metal kabob skewer every 10 minutes or so. Even though this cake bakes forever, every single time the cake has been super moist and delicious, so don't stress too much about it drying/burning.
4) SPRAY LOTS OF PAM (or any oil spray)!!! For my day-of cake I sprayed Pam, I swear I did! But somehow the cake WOULD NOT come out of the pan! I am going to assume I didn't spray enough, so make sure you do use enough! My day almost ended in tears, but my mom came up with the great idea to leave the cake stuck in the pan and just decorate the darn pan! Keep this in mind in emergency situations, it makes a great story, especially when you make the person of honor cut the "cake" like I did. lol ;)
5) When you put the pan in the oven, set it in another pan so that it doesn't tip. --- I'm sure I'm showing what an idiot I am, but once when I was baking this cake I set the pan on the oven rack by itself (you bake it as an upside down car, so the cake pan is NOT level). Suffice to say, within 20 minutes my oven was smoking because the whole pan tipped over and 2 boxes worth of cake mix seeped all throughout my oven. My dad had to take the oven apart (tools and everything!) to clean all the layers down to the coils. This was such a dumb mistake that ruined my night of baking (and smoked up the whole house!).
I hope you have as much fun with this cake pan as I have had so far!! Hopefully my tips will eliminate any stress it has the potential to cause!! ;)
-cake slid out easily when I used a butter/flour mixture to grease the pan
-cake cooked evenly in my convection oven even without a heating core (as some reviewers mentioned)
-the details showed well on the unfrosted cake, unlike a lot of character pans
-it's really cute and simple to decorate
-without a convection oven, I can see how a heating core might be helpful, and this isn't mentioned in the directions
-I wish this pan were a little more decisive on what kind of car it's going to be. The bottom is round and bubbly like a Beetle, but the top is square and angular like a 1980's police cruiser. Luckily for me, I have a surf board chocolate mold that I used to make a topper, or you could shave off any overflow doming from the bottom of the cake to round off the top.
-this cake alone might be too small for a kid's party. I placed it on top of a sheet cake.
-The suggested cook time is 1:30. I checked it around 50 minutes, which was the longest cooking time on the mix box, and it wasn't even close to being done in the middle.
-The pan says 6 cups of batter. If you're too lazy to translate that into boxes of mix, it's about 1.5 boxes.
I had no problems with the cake sticking I coated the pan with Bakers Joy. I used 2 Pillsbury white cake mixes & they fit perfectly with no over flow. The 2nd car I baked it at 325 for about 1 hour instead of 350 & it had a lot better flavor & wasn't dry like the first I made baking at 350. I did have to cut a little excess off of the top before I removed it from the pan.
I put the car on a cake platform. I used the star method for decorating after doing a smooth crumb coat of frosting. I used Butter Scotch candy for the headlights, red M&Ms for the tail lights, mini Devils food chocolate donuts halved for the wheels & a black coffee stir sick for the antenna.
I included pictures of the finished cake & a couple of it along the way.
