Flower Horsepower Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a fun and easy cake to decorate. The only problem I faced with this cake was that I ended up with a slightly harder crust than I would have liked. The instructions accompanying the Wilton 3D Cruiser Car pan said to use pound cake batter and bake the cake for 50-60 minutes. On this page I found instructions to bake the pound cake batter for 1 hour and forty minutes. I have made 3D cakes in the past using Wilton pans and have successfully used vanilla layer cake batter instead of pound cake and did the same this time. However, my vanilla cake which usually takes 30-35 minutes in two 9 inch pans was still wet in the centre at the end of one hour whereas the top was already brown. I then covered the pan loosely with buttered foil and baked for another 20 minutes till done as I had read in the instructions for pound cake in the Cake Bible. I also lowered the temperature to 325 degrees C after an hour. Even with that I ended up with a slightly hard and overbrowned crust ( both top and bottom) but thankfully the inner part was soft and moist. The bottom crust was remedied as I sliced it to make it even but I could not do anything about the top part as that would spoil the shape of the car. I posted pics of my cake on my blog

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this for my daughter when she was 16. It was the only car she got for her birthday! I also made it a different color because she wanted a purple one. Great pan to have on hand!
