Baking Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F or temperature per recipe directions. 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 vegetable oil pan spray with flour, in place of solid shortening and flour, or use New Wilton Cake Release, for perfect, crumb-free cakes!).

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 70-85 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.

Classic Wonder Mold Doll Cake is rated 4.7879 out of 5 by 297.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've made two different princesses from this mold for my daughter. The first one was a Belle cake, and the second one was a Cinderella cake. It was alot of fun to make. I used fondant to decorate the dress and bodice, and it was my first time using fondant. For Cinderella, I used a barbie Cinderella doll, and inserted her into the cake wrapped in clear wrap, but unfortunately she was too tall for the mold, so I had to make another round cake, and stack it underneath the mold. For the Belle cake, I just used the doll supplied from the pan. Both were fun to make. So many ways to decorate this cake, it's just fun to play around with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this cake a few time's and it's alway's been a fun cake to do and it's not that hard.The last one I just made was for a little girl's 4th Birthday.She wanted Cinarella.I got a Cindarella doll and used for the doll part and the gown was buttercream icing and I used rolled fondant for her sleeves and for the part around her waist.Everyone just loved it!!The only hard part was that the doll was taller than the cake,so trying to figure out how to make the waist look right took awhile.I leared that rice kricpie treat's and fountant really helps out!!Then after they ate the cake since I used a whole doll in the cake she got to have that as a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my grandmonthers 80th birthday. She always made me these doll cakes when i was a kid and I thought what better way to show her a happy birthday them to make her one of her own. I got so carried away I also made MINI doll cakes with the wilton mini mold cake pan. So she got to have the larger one on the table with the smaller doll cakes around. She was so proud to tell everyone about how she made them for me and now I'm making them for her. Make sure you place the doll far enough into the cake so it doesn't look like it was just plopped into the cake. Have your buttercream come up the the bottom of the doll so it looks all one piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have used this a number of times for little girl birthday parties. It is easy to decorate in lots of different ways. Have made traditional Barbie cakes, mountains, faeries, and just a weird shaped cake. Once I didn't use the insert and that was a disaster--it didn't cook through--still looked great, though! I have the old model and don't know if the newer one is the same, but I wish it was tall enough to come up to the waist of a real barbie doll. I have had to add a layer cake to the bottom sometimes. I don't like the idea of the doll picks.It looks like a doll cut in half after the cake is eaten. I have seen some disappointed kids when they take the doll pick out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use the Classic Wonder Mold Doll Cake for my niece's sweet 16. It was easy to use. I use fondant tinted in purple and aqua for her dress. I baked 2 sheets of cake 9 x 13 put on top of each other and then cut part of the cake into stairs, covered it with white fondant and then put the doll on top like if she was on a platform. I used a real doll but the legs and hips were too big for the hole on top of the cake that it cracked the cake but the fondant covered it. So I would stick with Wilton's classic doll instead. Everyone in the party loved the cake and I still get compliments for it. That is one of the best molds I have. My next cake with the mold will be a volcano for my son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this mold because it is versatile. I have used it not only for doll cakes but also to create giant mushrooms and jungle scenes. I made a cake with Tinkerbel sitting on a giant mushroom. I stuck the Tinkerbel doll into the cake and made fondant legs to make it appear the she's sitting on a giant mushroom. This will also be a great pan to use for a Mario cake. Likewise to make a giant from the Jack & the beanstalk. You can use the mold for the body and make a fondant head, arms and legs. This sure is a fun mold. Imagine, explore and create. I love this pan. I actually have 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have wanted this cake ever since it first came out. So when I was finally able to use it for my Granddaughter's Princess party I was thrilled. It was so easy. It was the first time I used fondant and was leary but when I started up I couldn't believe how easy it was. I made up the recipe and rolled it out and placed on the cake and presto... The princess was the center with the Wilton Princess Castle as a background on the party table and it was all my little princess could ask for! I've been decorating cakes for 30 years and it was the quickest "complicated" cake I've ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used the Classic Wonder Mold doll cake numerous times. Just last year I made my granddaughter her first princess cake. She was two. I made her Princess cake using the Classic Wonder Mold Doll cake for her skirt and inserted a real Barbie down the center. What made it so special is that I received my first Barbie the first year it came out and I gave my grand-daughter the new generation Barbie. I gave my grand-daughter, Barbie's grand-daughter. The princess dress was made of thin layers of pink and white draped fondant that looked liked flowing layers of chiffon. Lustre dust was brushed on for highlights and shimmer and flaked sugar crystals gave it a star dust sparkle. A real fairy tale princess cake.
