I am going to purchase Wilton's 3D Car pan. I have never done a character pan or a 3D pan. Is this something that can be done easily? I can pipe so I'm thinking that is a big plus, but this is my first experience with this type of pan. It's for my son, for this weekend. Should I crumb coat first?
Also, I bought Wilton's Black Decorating Icing that is in the tube. I will need it just for a few accents on the car. Does this icing crust? Or will it bleed onto buttercream? The car will be green for the most part, black wheels/windows.
I'll appreciate any help!

A (more dense) doctored cake mix is usually recommended:
I did an airplane recently and it was a dream to make. Easy to pipe along the outline or add details as I liked.
I used a moist cake, and did not have to crumb coat it as it came out with a firm 'skin' on the outside and I was afraid of tearing it in the crevices.
It made doing a 3D cake a really fun experience. It was my first time using a character pan too. Loved it.
good, thanks for the help.
I'd still like to know if anyone has used that premade Wilton Black icing in the tube.
I keep several tubes of Wilton's black and red on hand for small projects. It will crust and I haven't had it bleed into/onto my buttercream so far. And actually, it doesn't taste all that bad. I just can't seem to make a really black or red icing, so I keep them "just in case". HTH
