The icing is made with pasteurized egg whites so I do not keep them in the fridge just a air tight box.

I actually use two box cake mixes and it works fine, but i do bake it at 325 instead of 350 and it is for much longer.

I think the chocolate wrapper on the bottom is a great idea.

You can also find premade giant sprinkles instead of making them in fondant. :-)

Did you also cover the bottom of the pan with chocolate? Great to hear that it worked with chocolate and not candy melts. I cant get those to work.

The receipe that comes with it makes more batter than needed, so I don’t fill it up as full and use the left over batter to make some small cupcakes. The hour baking time in my oven is perfect with no problem. Cake releases out of the pan with ease. I add a filling where the top swirl meets the bottom cake and use a very large star tip to decorate the swirl top, which is very easy to use, no mess and works perfect to keep the “swirl look”. I wrap the lower, unfrosted part of cake, with clear or color food safe plastic wrap as this give it the look of a cupcake liner and keeps the unfrosted cake from drying out. I also like to wrap a pretty decorated ribbon around the plastic wrap to fit a special occasion, and then frost the swirl cake with colored icing to match a color from the decorated ribbon.

I have also tried to make a madeira style sponge but I cant get the measurements right. The vanilla buttercake recipe sounds fab for what I am doing. I cant find it anywhere and I have contacted wilton for it with no luck.

The top can be used as a beehive, bottom for a flowerpot. Many different ways to use it.

Now, after reading your little post on it, I’m thinking about giving it a chance after all. How could any cupcake be a bad cupcake???

It did not have any instructions, so I had to try some practice cakes.

I cut pans apart because the top cooked faster than the bottom.

One box cake was not big enough for our tastes, so I made a bananna cake and increased it my one half. Next time I will try doubleing it.

I cook at 325 for over an hour.

It has been fun practicing!

I always do that with 3D pans.

It also had the very “crispy” touch to the outside of teh cake.

Yours looks amazing tho!!!

At the moment I dont have the time to write down the recipe but there are several online recipes on butter pound cake so please try and google.

The Vanilla butter cake recipe that you mention was not included with my pan :-(. However, a double chocolare pound cake recipe was included and I do not like chocolate. Would you mind sharing the vanilla butter cake recipe?

Much appriciated. Yes you can do so much fun with this like make the swirl with ice cream. I was also thing of maybe carve out the center of the bottom and fill it with MM’s.

Next time I will try and decorate it with fondant.

Thank you dear Becky for this wonderful gift. You are such a sweet heart.
