I have a question and hope you can help
I just bought the Wilton Baby Carriage cake pan for my daughter's baby shower cake.
I got home, looked at it, and thought: How do I frost the top of this without covering up all the indentations (the design) of the cake top?"
Is there a trick to this???
Thanks in advance to whoever can help me!
I think if you use your star tip you can just follow the shapes.
I have that pan and if you look at my pics you will see it you have different options you should have received a instruction sheet with your pan if you didn't you can get a copy of it off the Wiltons web site used the #18 tip
when using a wilton pan, I usually take a complimenting color and outline all the details of the cake, and then fill it in with whatever tip you choose. I would use whatever color you are planning on making the carrige and use a #2, or #3 tip to do the outlining. I find this to be the most helpful. Hope this helps! Good luck and congrats on the new baby!!!!
Here's a close-up from the Wilton baby carriage pan decorating directions showing finished cake using stars:
You might want to invest in the Wilton triple-star tip to speed up the process:

that triple star tip is a wrist saver!!! makes quick work of it!
So, I had a thought about this and wonder if it would work? Could you put icing on plastic wrap and then, put the wrap in the cake pan, smooth it out, freeze it, take it out, flip it upside down on the cake and peel the plastic away before it melts back to icing? Has anybody ever tried something like that? I was just curious to see if something like that would work. Sounds good on paper...I'll have to try it sometime.
Don't know if this helped. It was something I had thought about, but had never tried (I don't too many shaped pans).
Thanks so much! I knew you all would come through for me.
I appreciate the links, tips, and mold idea.
That mold idea is interesting but I don't have time to experiment or else I'd check it out.
Thanks for your help!
