I just received the Giant Wilton Cupcake pan last weekend as a gift from my step mom. I plan on using it this week to make a birthday cake for my neighbor's daughter.
I need some feedback from anyone that has used it - is it easy to put together, do I need to use any supports and if so - how many, do I need to put a cardboard separater between the top and bottom.

So any help or suggestions would be great!!!

I just made this and didn't use any supports just put icing between the 2 layers. No cardboard. It was very easy to do. I just made sure I used shortening and flour to grease it though it no chance of sticking. I let them cool seperatly and then put them together. icon_smile.gif it was one of the funnest and easiest cakes I have ever done.

Did you have any problem with getting both pieces baked completely? Did you use any flower nails or baking cones, or baking strips?

I didn't have any problem getting them both fully done. I think if I remember right I cooked it on 325 instead of 350. Just did the toothpick test on it and when the middle was donw I took them out and then leveled them. I didn't use any baking stripes or anything just cooked them.

I used mine for the first time about 2 weeks ago. I didn't use any nails or baking strips. The topper side of the cupcake got done quicker then the bottom. I just used a spatula to lift it and it came right out. I don't know if changing the temp. would make a difference or not, I went with their instructions for baking.

fiddlesticks - did you use papertowels to get the swirls around the bottom of your cupcake? I love the look of that one and it would for for the 8 year old girl I'm making it for.

I can't wait to try it this weekend.

darandon.. Yes if your talking about the design on the base part of the cupcake? Just like you use the viva to plain smooth your icing on a cake , I use a printed paper towel to get the print ! I cant wait to see yours !

I love my giant cupcake pan... I haven't had a problem with it at all... The bottom does tend to take a little longer to get done than the top part does... but I cook it on 325.

I've made several of them so far... no cardboard in the middle, just icing.

Good luck, and don't forget to post a pic of the finished product.

Thanks everyone for giving me encouragement. I plan on baking the cake tonight and decorating it for the sleepover birthday party on Saturday.
