King of Cupcakes! Cake is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is another fun easy Wilton cake pan that everyone loves. I have made so many of these for friends and for my husbands bosses at work. I have decorated the entire thing with whipped buttercream frosting and sprinkled with mini M&M's, and some with chocolate sprinkles. I also did this cupcake and cut the very top off of it. Then I baked the mini bear. and set it on top of the giant cup cake, I frosted the whole thing, then came back and piped in grass all over the top and added royal frosting flowers, so that it looked like the bear was sitting on a hill surrounded by a flield of grass and flowers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Here's how you decorate the bottom EASY!!!!!! First, wrap the cake in foil and freeze it over night. When you're ready to decorate take it out of the freezer and leave it wrapped in your kitchen for 10 - 20 minutes. This will allow moisture in the air to condense on the foil not your cake. While you are waiting melt dark chocolate in the microwave and PAINT the bottom with a pastry brush (milk chocolate might work too, I have only used dark). After it is painted and you have transfered it to your board or serving dish you can put the top onto the bottom. It cuts and serves just fine and your finished product looks like a cupcake liner. I imagine that this would work well with tinted white chocolate too... but I haven't tried it YET.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to use a heating core to bake the bottom of this cake, otherwise the middle will not bake correctly. I made a lemon cake & scooped out the middle of the bottom layer and filled it with vanilla ice cream. I also baked 1 jumbo, regular & mini size cupcake. I frosted all four cupcakes with lemon(clear) flavored buttercream. I decorated the cupcakes with brightly colored buttercream using Wilton tips 13, 16 & 18 to make circles, lines, stars, etc. My 35 yr old niece called me when she was down the street from my house at which point I placed premeasured ice cream into cake, stacked all 4 cupcakes on top of each other & stood back to enjoy my lovely creation!!!Everyone LOVED THE CAKE. Beautiful to look at and fun to eat. I just loved this pan!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This cake was definitely a challenge. The worst part about the baking was that it took almost two batches of cake batter. It is also tough to decorate this neatly. It's an awkward reach to decorate a small but tall cake-- a rotating cake stand is a must! I used the 1m tip to pipe the top, and the sides of the cupcake and it turned out pretty well. As for the fondant work, I used a homemade marshmallow fondant and it did not set up very well. Be sure to use gum paste for the wrapping, or a stiffer fondant recipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used my gaint cupcake pan to make a birthday cake for my nephew. He wanted dinosaurs on it so what I did was make the gaint cupcake look like a volcano mountain and added small plastic dinosaurs, plastic rocks and other items to make it look "real" dinosaur age. He thought it was just great, we had also made smaller cupcakes with just red, green and white frosting on them in the dinosaur cupcake liners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My neice loves cupcakes and wanted this cake for her birthday. She had invited several children so I made three large cupcakes of different flavors. Everyone found a flavor they loved!!! The party was in the mall and several people stopped and remarked how cute they were. Lots of people stopped to look that made no comments. The table looked like a small "Smurf" village. So cute!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the concept of the King of Cupcakes! Cake, but I too find that the bottom part of it is a little difficult to ice. I haven't tried putting the fondant stripes on it yet. The top of it I have finally got mastered. it's just the bottom that is giving me problems. Otherwise, I like it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This pan is very difficult to work with. It's too deep or something, and the middle never cooks. I have even tried baking the top and bottom separatly because the top doesn't need as long as the bottom. This pan is poorly engineered.
