I have had the Wilton cupcake pan for about a year now, never used it until last night. My 16 year old decided that was going to be his cake this year, complete with a cherry on top. I looked here to see if there would be any problems with it. I decided to bake mine one piece at a time, no problems. I didn't want to use fondant on the bottom part, so I got a bright idea at 11:30 last night to use melted chocolate as a paper. I have a Wilton chocolate pro, filled it to the max, melted the chocolate and colored it bright red. I then poured all the chocolate into the bottom of the pan, with a paint brush pulled the chocolate up the sides, I did this slow, giving the chocolate time to cool. This way, the sides got thick. Put in the freezer for about 30-45 minutes and pulled straight up and it actually worked. Then I put the bottom portion of the cake into the "cupcake paper!!!" Yeah!!!!!!!!! birthday.gif

I'm a bit stupid when it comes to chocolate ... how did you get it out of the pan without breaking it?

SOOOO smart!!! Did you have to trim the bottom down much to get it to fit in the "wrapper"?

Great idea!! I have to do this cake this upcoming weekend and think I'm going to try this. The mom wants the bottom to be white with polka dots so this would be great. Just out of curiosity, did you ice the cake bottom and then it in the "wrapper"? Did it all fit? Thanks again for the idea!
