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.

Baby Buggy Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I posted a pic of my buggy on Cake Central and it has 4 favorites! I used one of the alternate designs. I wish we could post pics here! I used my Wilton fountain tinted yellow and placed the Wilton baby ornament on top! It was my pee pee fountain!! I used the Wilton rattles and baby bottles hung from Wilton stand. Baby candy pacifiers from Wilton completed my party! EVERYONE wanted to know where I bought "the pee pee fountain" I explained it was just the regular water fountain decorated with Wilton products. GREAT BABY SHOWER!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found this cake to be some what easy, when following the directions. First I would outline each section so I have a guide. Then going back I could fill in each section with my various colors. On the bottom of the carriage itself I used the basket weave design, with more of a ruffle design for the top. I did ask what colors they were using for the baby shower so I could use the same colors for the cake icing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found the directions for the baby buggy cake to be very easy to follow. When I made it for my daughter's shower I changed the color scheme which was also very easy to do. On the inside part of the buggy I was able to make the plain icing look more like a blanket by adding a little bit of color and design to form the turndown look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was fun and easy to make! I changed the colors somewhat, but I used the picture as a guide. The only hard part was seeing the divisions on the baked cake, especially when it was partially decorated. I've made a lot of cakes for work, and when I brought this to a co-workers baby shower, it was a hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I taught my nine yr. old granddaughter how to decorate this cake. She made it for the babyshower cake for her mother when her baby sister was born. She and her mother are now avid cake decorating fans and enjoy the family time they spend together doing it. This was a great cake to learn the basics on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was fun and easy to make. I recommend using the Wiltons Cake Release product since it allows the cake to release from the pan with ease and will not break apart. Decorating was fun also. I am a beginner on cake making and the picture helped me design it as if I was a professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was so fun and cute to make! I made it for a friend's baby shower and it was a hit! The fun thing is that you can change the icing to any color depending on what colors they are doing for the baby. You can also use a cookie to make a face of a baby in the stroller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my daughter's baby shower. It turned out better than I thought it would. I did change the colors to suit the theme of her shower. I used pink for cover, green for the buggy and white for the rest of the cake. I wish I would have taken a picture.
