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!).

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.

We recommend hand washing pan in hot, soapy water.

Enchanted Castle Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just made this cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday which was at a princess tea party. I made a chocolate cake (homemade) and split it and added a cookies-and-cream filling then decorated according to the instructions except I made the flowers yellow which I thought looked much better and I piped the flowers directly onto the cake. The most difficult thing I thought (I am a beginner) was outlining neatly. Everything else was not difficult. The final product was great-everyone loved it. It served about 20 (small pieces). I would highly recommend this pan for anyone doing a princess theme. I had to transport the cake so I decided against something 3-dimensional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WILTON RULES!!! I have been making cakes, cookies, and frosting anything that will stand still for over 40 years! I used all Wilton pans and materials and I have never been disappointed. I created this particular cake for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday. Using the cake pan for a candy mold, I created the castle and placed it on a 16x20 Wilton sheet cake pan. It was the hit of the party. Directions were excellent and easy to follow when using Wilton. Wilton never fails me. I made birthday cakes for my son back when he was little and now I decorate cakes for my grandchildren. Any of the cake pans can be used for candy molds. Don't be afraid to experiment. When you use Wilton you can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is just another of Wilton's great shape cake pans! These pans make it so easy to make a celebration extra special! I made this cake for my daughter's first birthday. She loved the princess design! So easy to make and customize with a child's favorite colors. It can be a little difficult to see the outlines, especially after putting on a crumb coat, but the picture that comes with the pan helps a lot. I have also used this pan for summer events and made it into a sand castle. I just frost it and coat the top with brown sugar...it looks just like sand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for a 4-year old's birthday party and it was definitely a hit. All the little girls loved it and all the grownups ooh'd and aah'd over it too. Because of the flowers, it took a little longer than other star cakes I have made but the end result was worth it. It was my first time making drop flowers and leaves and they were easier to do than I thought they would be. They definitely added that little something extra as the castle, while still pretty, looked a little plain without them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my friend's daughter's birthday. It's quite a detailed cake to make. My biggest trick was making all of the lines with the icing before putting in the stars and then going over the ones I wanted to "pop". Also, I'd never made the flowers before and used buttercream to do so. After chilling them a bit, it worked out fine, but next time I'd probably try the royal icing instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used this pan several times. I have three Girls and they do not seem to get tired of the Castle Cake. It is easy to use. I coat the bottom and sides with butter and flour and It comes out perfect. I freeze the cake then take a paint brush to it and brush off excess crumbs and start decorating it. It stands up well to make a 3D effect. Any girl would love this cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a friend's daughter and I changed up the colors to match her request and made it with strawberry cake so it "would be pink on the inside". The little princess loved it!! I did change a few of the tip sizes up a number or two and everything working out just great. I only wish I had gone ahead and used two cake box mixes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really time consuming doing all the castle colors! This year plan on making the Frozen castle, should be a lot easier just blue and white! Got miniature figurines from ebay of all the characters should be cute! Also using nestle sno caps candy for the snowflakes. I was going to buy some white choc covered pretzels but the candy will do!
