I need your help!

Where do I start? I have a birthday party this weekend that I am doing the cupcakes for. Right! Well I didn't just want to do cupcakes. I wanted to try out my new Giant Cupcake Mold from Wilton. Well any time I try something new. I always do a trial run. Plus you best believe that if I even try to forget to test it out first. My dear hubby will make sure that I do the test run. He doesn't want to deal with the tears and complaints later.

So tonight I decided that I would try out the new pan. Well guess what it didn't work out for me! So I am asking anyone who may have tried this pan to let me know how you came out with that perfect cupcake. Or if you had problems. I would love to hear about it so I know that I am not alone. I mean how hard could it be right? Make the batter pour and bake. Well luckily I listened to hubby this time because the pan wanted to cause me problems. Now I know what your thinking I didn't grease the pan. Well I did. I greased that pan so good with spray it should of slid right out like it always does when I make any other type of cake.

Well that pan wasn't going to let go without a fight. Look what that darn pan did to my cupcake.

I was tapping,massaging even talking to the darn pan. But nothing! I used a pound cake recipe. Not the one that comes with pan but another. I figured the weight would have pulled it out good. But now I was literally fighting with this pan to let my darn cake go. It is Tuesday time is running out. I have a vision of what it is all supposed to look like. But right now that vision is shattered. Help me please.


  1. Maybe try Wilton's "Cake Release"? I have used that with success on many a pan. Or perhaps grease it with shortening/flour it and then line the creases with parchment paper and then regrease it? I don't know how well that would work on a giant cupcake pan, but it's worth a shot! :) Good luck!

  2. Cakedreamer Thank you! I think doing the parchment would take a lot of work. But I never tried the cake release since I always used pam. Figuring it is the same thing. But hey I am running out of time and I have to try what I can. I am not going to let this pan get the best of me.Hopefully by the end of this week I can post the finished product.

  3. That stinks...I have made this cake before, but I used shortening and flour and it came out perfect. I would have thought that Pam spray would work great...who knows...sorry about that!!

  4. Cookies and Cups thanks for dropping by. I will have to try the shortening and flour. I have just never used that technique and as you stated I would have thought the Pam would have worked since it is what I have used on all my cakes. My way didn't work so on to the next way.

  5. I used this cake pan and had no problems with it. Have you tried it again since this? I used flour crisco spray. its like normal butter sprays but it has flour in it too.

  6. Queen,

    No I have not tried again. But will be in a couple of weeks for my nieces birthday so I hope it comes out.


Please leave me a comment. I love to hear what everyone has to say. I always respond back whether here or email. Sometimes both.
