Hello all-


I am making a 3d wedding cake dress and am contemplating whether I should buy the wilton wonder cake mold.  What are everyone's experiences with the mold? Does the cake still come out moist? Or would I be better off stacking and carving the cake myself? Thanks in advance :)

You really can do that either way.  The mold works just fine for baking when the metal 'straw' is used (it conducts heat into the center of the cake to help it bake evenly).  My experience is that it takes longer to bake then the instructions say - maybe up to 20 minutes longer but it's been a long time since I;ve baked one :)

I'm thinking your choice is going to depend on how many servings you need.  The wonder mold uses 1 1/2 to 2 cake mixes for something like 20-25 servings. (To cut you split the 'dress cake' in 1/2 cutting each 1/2 into 1" slices.)
