I had just recently gotten a winnie the pooh 3-D pan from a yard sale and need some ideas for the pan. My 3 kids are not into winnie the pooh anymore, but for $1.00 I couldn't pass the pan up. I am now stumped what else it could be used for besides winnie the pooh. Any ideas are welcome.

He seems very similar to the 3D bear pan to me... Many ideas here -
If you go to wiltons website, click on ideas for the 3-D pans. It show you can use it for people, bears, bees, dragons, elephants, and snowmen. It will give you the instructions fot each one as well. Be creative. I could see it as any kind of animal that could sit up. A mouse, a monkey, a dog, a cat. If the animal isn't in the exact shape of the pan, (like the cat) think of ways to adjust. Put a ball of yarn in front of the cat and have it's paws on the yarn. Add extra fondant for the ears and tail. You might have to cut a little piece of the nose off. Just try to picture how it should look and go for it! Hope this helps.
Be careful when you use it.I had mine to fall over in the oven with me,it was a rainbow of a mess for I was using the pillsbury confetti cake mix in it.The pieces that hold it up are flimsy.Also be sure and messure out the cups of batter you are using it has a tendancy to overflow if it does stay up and be sure to spray it good,his nose has a tendancy to stick .Sorry, I hope this didn't scare you away from your new pan, just wanted to give you a heads up.
Thanks everyone, I will give it a try when I get a chance.
