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 Wilton Cake Release, for perfect, crumb-free cakes or Bake Easy Non-Stick Spray for easy release).

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 30-40 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.

Electric Guitar Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this pan. We used it for my son's 4th birthday party, when we had a Rock 'N' Roll theme. The design is simple enough that you can't really make a mistake. Plus you have lots of open space to customize the design with your child's name or other embellishments. It's also very adaptable to your child's favorite colors. It was a little time consuming to dot on all the stars but it was well-worth it. I got such positive feedback about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I don't like that the picture online was flipped vs. the picture that came with the pamphlet in the pan. The tips in the supplies needed list, 3, 4, 7, 18 and 21. The online instructions don't include anywhere that tip 4 is used. The pamphlet instructions don't have any instruction to use tip 3. Just wanting some clarification on instructions/tip use. My cake did come out great though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had this pan for several years and it produces a totally different look every time I use it, just changing colors or style of frosting application. I originally bought it when my son was a teenager for his birthday cake, then used it for the "grooms" cake for both his and my nephews weddings..each with a completely different turn-out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved doing this project, I made a guitar hero cake with this pan and it came out fantastic! The pan provides the basic outline for the guitar as well as a decent amount of detail. Its easy to do if you have a picture with you to get the details for whatever guitar you'd like to do. My friend absolutely loved the cake!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this cake pan, I have used it for 2 different birthdays so far and the cakes came out great. It was one of my first cakes I decorated and the kids loved it. Using this pan made decorating very easy with the different formations built right into the pan to help guide the different areas and color seperations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son's 5th birthday. The kids loved it. It was very easy to done and fun to make! I was able to base the design on a toy electric guitar my son has. It was black with some silver and a bright orange flame! IT was AWESOME! It tied right in with the 'Rock n Bowl' birthday party!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake decorated in red for my sons Birthday and he loved it. This was the first Wilton cake I made & decorated before I took the complete line of classes. I followed the instructions and found it somewhat easy for a beginner. This cake is what got me hooked on cake decorating :)
