Ice indentions on baby bottle smooth with thinned white icing (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch).

Use tip 5 and blue thinned icing to print "B", use rose thinned icing to print "A", use thinned Kelly green/lemon yellow/royal blue combination icing to print second "B" and thinned yellow icing to print "Y".

Baking Instructions Preheat oven to 350°F or temperature per recipe directions. Before first and after each use, we recommend hand washing pan in warm soapy water. Your cake will unmold easily, without sticking, when you prepare the pan properly. Grease the inside of pan using a pastry brush and solid vegetable shortening (do not use butter, margarine or liquid vegetable oil). Spread the shortening so that all indentations are covered.
Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons flour inside pan and shake so that flour covers all greased surfaces. Turn pan upside down and tap lightly to remove excess flour. If any shiny spots remain, touch up with more shortening and flour to prevent cake from sticking. (You can use vegetable oil pan spray or Wilton Cake Release or Wilton Bake Easy? Non-Stick Spray, in place of solid shortening and flour).
Make one 2-layer cake mix according to package or recipe directions. Pour the cake batter into pan, and if necessary, spread the batter around with a spatula to fill all areas of the pan evenly. Be careful not to touch sides or bottom of pan.
Bake cake on middle rack of 350°F oven for 40-45 minutes or until cake tests done according to recipe directions.
Remove cake from oven and cool on cake rack for 10 minutes. While the cake is still in the pan, carefully slice off the raised center portion of the cake. This allows the cake to sit more level and helps prevent cracking.
To remove cake from pan, place cooling rack against cake and turn both cake rack and pan over. Lift pan off carefully. Cool cake at least one hour. Brush loose crumbs off cake.
To transfer cake to serving board, hold a cake board against cake and turn both cake and rack over. Lift off rack. Hold another board against bottom of cake and turn cake over. Be sure to hold cake, rack and board close together while turning to prevent cake from cracking.

This is one of my most used pans!
I almost always need to feed 30 or more so I bake a sheet cake and put the baby bottle cake on top. It looks great and kind of like a tiered cake so people like that!
GET a TRIPLE STAR TIP from Wilton!!! This saves you time and keeps your hand from cramping so badly...also use a slightly thinner buttercream so your hand doesn't hate you so much the next morning!

I made the "baby boy" bottle cake and it wasnt too hard to cover the cake with the frosting. I did stars on the whole thing in white, yellow and blue. I didnt try and do the sections of the bottle as a smooth area like the picture has it, i tried but it wasnt working for me so i just decided to do that whole thing in stars.

This pan was great to use. Icing it was easy as the cake came out of the pan with ease allowing all the detail to show through. The overall product was beautiful and a huge hit with the guests at our party. I would definitely try this one again.

Fairly basic and easy design. I used the star throughout and wish I would have had the triple star tip to make it go faster but overall I had great feedback on the final product and would definitely do it again.
