Topic: 3-D Winnie the Pooh Cake Pan
Tommis_Mommy 10/29/2008 4:01 PM
Hello I have the 3-D winnie the pooh cake pan. My question is how do you keep it from cracking? I have made about 3 cakes with it and each time poor pooh cracks and does not look nice any longer. I would like to make one again in Nov for a baby shower but I do not want it to crack before the party even starts!!

I would appreciate any advice!! Thanks in advance.

I've made several and I don't think any of them cracked. When do you have problems? While it is cooling? Before it is frosted? After it is decorated?

I use the "pound cake" variation on a cake mix -- for each mix, add an extra egg and a 4-serving size pudding mix, 1/2 oil, and the water called for on the box. It seems a little sturdier than a plain cake mix.

I cool according to the instructions, letting the steam out on both sides and then letting it rest face down in the front half of the pan overnight.

I always cut a slice off the bottom so it is level, even if the cake looks level to start with.

I don't know if any of those things would help you, but if you don't do them now it might be worth a try.

I haven't had my cake crack. Sorry to hear that is happening to yours. I would suggest you let your cake rest for about 5-6 hours before decorating.

Hi Jeanne, the cake crakes after decorating. I will try your recipie, I have had several people tell me that pound cake works better for the 3-d pans so I hope that works.
