I'm making a princess cake for someone in my Moms' Club, but I've never used the wonder mold pan before. I'm buying it for my daughter's birthday anyway, but I have a couple questions. It says it takes 4 to 5 cups of batter. How much is that, as in, would that be equivalent to 2 8" pans or more? Also, when using that pan, do you use a filling, or just cake?
I have made several "doll" cakes and I use 1 box mix and add an extra egg and a packet of "co-ordinating" jello pudding. I use the center rod and I also use a bake even strip around the top edge to keep the edge from burning. And, I only bake it @ 325. Hope that helps, pm me if you have any ?'s.
I have a question... where do you buy the dolls at??? I haven't seen any, just the pans. THANKS! ruby
i have made a few (see my pictures) and you can buy them at ac moore or michaels or even cake supply shops. If you use a "real" barbie you will have to add an extra round cake at the bottom because she is a lot taller than the picks. A would also recomend washing her well and wrapping her in plastic wrap so your cake does not taste like plastic!
Another alternative to using a real Barbie and having to add a cake underneath would be to purchase the Wilton picks (available at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc.), pop off the head, and replace it with a Barbie/Bratz/Disney Princess head or whatever you choose.
