Green Holiday Tree Cake is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This pan is very difficult to use if you don't spray the pan excessively. The first and second attempt was awful. We ate the cake anyway. This time I used baker joy spray and it finally came out of the pan as the tree. I would like to see a picture of what to do with the holes. So for a German Chocolate cake I would put the coconut frosting in the holes with a cherry on top. Anyway I hope Wilton would put a picture of the cake on the website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The pan I got at Wal-Mart has huge holes in it too. How much candy would it take to fill?? Terrible instructions and would definitely like to see a photo of finished cake.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't mean to sound so negative about the previous post I made. Wilton does make some wonderful products, and this could be one of them that "I" just haven't figured out yet. The pan I saw at Wal-Mart had holes that looked like they would go completely through the cake and would take quite a few chocolate candies to fill up. Then they would be all piled up on top of each other. Without an image, it's difficult to say if this is the same pan, not to mention the paper insert in the pan just didn't seem like the Wilton quality I've come to know over the years. I'm looking forward to seeing if I should race back to the store and get it before it's gone!
