I have a grooms cake due in a couple of weeks. It is a car shaped pan. He got it off Ebay. So I am wondering on how to do this. When backing that type of pan you can't put parchment paper at the botton, because that is where the details are. So how do you successfully get the whole cake out in one peice without any cake sticking to the pan? Any help will be appreciated.

Lots of Pam spray and flour, and 'hold your mouth right' when you unmold that baby. Good luck. I hate those pans...

Grease the pan with Crisco, making sure to get in all the little detail crevices. Then dust with flour (or cocoa, if it's chocolate). thumbs_up.gif

I use bakers joy spray with my pans. Have had no problem with them coming out.

Just make sure you get in the little corners and tight spots.

I used either Baker's Joy or Pam baking spray (with flour added) on the Wilton car shaped pan and had no problem with my cake sticking.

Since it is more of a liquid I think it gets into the crevices better than if you grease and flour your pan by hand.

Oh man guys. I am really scared of this cake. Arghhh!! How far in advance do you guys think I can do this cake? I can just frost it. I just don't think it would look right. I was thinking fondant. But I wanna make sure to keep the ridges. Oooooo. I really am nervous.

I used the pan once and it came out fine. I probably just sprayed some pam or something in it.

I've heard that Pan Grease works really well, it's made up of:

1 cup shortening
1 cup oil
1 cup flour

Brush on with pastry brush, making sure there are no bare spots.

My mom had like 200 of those wilton pans and she would grease well with crisco making sure it is even and in every crevice and put flour in it and shook to get flour in all the crevices and never had a problem. The details always showed. I have done it this way and never (well never say never icon_surprised.gif ) had a problem. You could always do a trial run and see what works for you. icon_smile.gif

When I use character pans, I let the icing crust well. Then I set the pan on top of the crusted icing and gently push. It should transfer many of the details onto your icing.

I should add, that I haven't used that particular pan, however.

This is what I always use, no matter what size or shape the cake.

Although I never use these pans, I coach/teach 4H kids that do and THIS is a great tip for them! Our county Fair is coming up the end of September, and there are always a few of these pans uses. I think this will help the kids with their cake decorating.
