Has anyone used this pan yet? I got it for my birthday and want to use it but I am looking for any tips and tricks. Thanks everyone!!
I haven't used it...hadn't even seen it until now. It's super cute! I would think it would be hard to ice it and not lose the details, however you could always recreate those with fondant or icing. Definitely post a picture of what you make. It really is a cute pan. I do love that Williams Sonoma, lol!
I know. I thought the same thing. I think I am going to cover it in fondant and make the bee's from the fondant as well. I will post a pic soon.
I am in the middle of making Debbie Brown's busy bee hive cake. I baked it today, and will be carving and covering it tomorrow. I'll let you know if I learn anything that might helpful - and I'll post a pic, too.
Loriana - Did you use the Williams-Sonoma pan or did you carve it out yourself? It is so very cute!!
Thanks so much!
Actually I carved it myself and it didn't take much carving. It was an 8", 6" pan and an aluminum mixing bowl that was about 5" in diameter.
I baked the cakes and baked cake in the mixing bowl, first spraying it with non-stick spray and flowering it. I thinkly buttercreamed and stacked the leveled cakes then refrigerated firm. The only carving necessary one stacking all three was just to get some curves to the edges. Hope that helps!
I made the beehive pan cake.. I used their recipe (not crazy over it).. I with the bees weren't on the side of the cake, but otherwise pretty easy, but hard to cut!!
