Rated 5 out of 5 by Estelle from One of the first cakes I made, made it for my son's 25th birthday, decorated it as a VW Beetle race car... turned out great, used this as a topper for a large slab cake, my son loved it so much that he ate the cake around it, and saved the car... Phat Cat Cake creations in Penticton is where I get my supplies and my encouragement ! They were awesome in helping me through my first attempts, and it was a huge success !! Photos were posted on the facebook page for PhatCat.. Anyone attempting to make a 3D cake of this kind will not be disappointed, it was a simple pan to use and the cake turned out just perfect !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lenadiane from After the cake was prepared and placed on the cardboard I covered it in buttercream icing. I then prepared my fondant a med. blue and placed it on the car. I cut out all the windows and replaced the pieces with black edible sheets that I cut. I went around each window in silver (gray), it had yellow headlights, red taillights, the number 07 on both doors, the hood, the trunk, and the top of the car. There was also a racing stripe down the middle of the car and license plates . It had black tires with white rims. I rolled some fondant to go around the bottom to cover anything where the fondant met the cardboard. This was my first try with the car and everyone loved it! I enjoyed making it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by party girls cakes from I made my dad this cake for his birthday using the NASCAR driver Kyle Busch. It turned out really cute and gave me great experience using differant tips and techniques. I will definately use this pan again and again. I have so many ideas for this pan and can't wait to use it again. I now know that I need to have my decorating idea laid out before hand to cut down the time it took me to decorate it the first time I used it. I have had several requests from friends and family to use this pan for upcoming celebrations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by anem from I made this cake for a friends, sons third birthday. I rented the pan from my local Bulk Barn for one dollar, a lot cheaper then buying it and I don't have to store it some where in hopes that I need to make another. It was very easy to make. I placed the cake of a foil wrapped cardboard were I used coconut,dyed green, for grass. And crushed Oreo cookies for the road. Turned out great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by aphoto from I mad this cake yesterday for my neighbours second birthday with a few changes he thought it was amazing and so did everyone else. I was worried that some parts of the cake would dry out due to the cake cooking unevenly but it didn't it was still lovely and moist I did have to cook it for an extra 20 mins tho. I can't wait to try and make the golf cart for my dads birthday :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by amham from I used this pan first for a birthday cake for my mentally challenged step son who love nascar. It made a great race car and he loved it. The next time I used it for my twin grandsons when they turned 15 and got their learners permit for driving. I turned it into a student driver's ed car and it was a huge success. This pan is very easy to adopt to your ideas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MeganM from One off my earliest attempts at a 3D cake and I cut the top off and turned in into The Big Red Car from The Wiggles - my son LOVED it! I have also covered it in fondant rather than buttercream and painted it to look just like the car my for my cousin had just bought when she turned 18. There are so many options with this pan and they always impress!

Rated 3 out of 5 by sdca from This cake took about 6 hours. I don't like boxed cakes, so I made a chocolate one from scratch. I greased the pan according to the instructions and the cake fell in half and stuck to the pan. (I think because it was more dense than a no-substance box cake). It was a mess and very stressful and took a long time to 'glue' with frosting. I then had to do a crumb coat because of the mess. I'd like to have a recipe for these moulds that are not out of a box and wish wilton would provide one. Not only do I think it's important to look nice I actually want my guests to eat it. Thankfully I put a baking sheet underneath the rack in the oven because it overflowed also. I made this into a police car for my son's 4th birthday. I put a red flashing LED light on top, his name on the hood and number on the roof. I put a police man on top of a matchbox (the battery was underneath), and spiderman on top of the cake. It looked awesome. I just wish it hadn't took until 2am.
