I have to do a McQueen cake this week, for 15 servings (small for what I usually accept). Will I be able to get away with using (reshaping a few parts) the Wilton cruiser pan for this or will I still need to hand carve the cake to get the 15 servings?
Hi, I've got the wilton McQueen cake pan. You can have 20 or a bit more pieces from that. I am not good at carving, so I would use the pan.
I also have the McQueen pan, but it is not 3D like the cruiser pan. I have a pic of Lightning McQueen in my pics that I did using the pan if you want to see the results.
No I need a 3D one, and I have the cruiser pan. I've made a McQueen car a couple of times now, I believe once with the pan and once by hand, but I just need to know if the 3D cruiser pan will serve 15 so I don't have to bake extra cake and hand carve.
If it holds 6.5 cups of batter (according to Wilton anyway), that's a bit more than an 8" cake so it's at least 20 servings.. You should be fine with just using the cruiser pan.
Thanks! I was thinking it took like a mix and a half which would be greater than 12 servings....I'll have to carve a little away but not bad....thanks again!
