GIANT cupcake silicone pan...

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I bought this online and it didnt come with directions. So I looked at Wiltons cupcake pan and followed it, but this pan is about twice the size. I put one full box of cake mix on one side of the pan and it still didnt get large enough to fill the pan....

Does anyone have ideas or have any problems like I am... what do I do??? icon_cry.gif

Fill the pan more until 2/3 full..it may take a few mixes...Make sure you bake it long enough also!!

On that topic of cupcake cake pans - the Wilton one (at least the only one I've seen) is only one half of a cupcake... but whenever I see 'cupcake cakes' they are always 3D and standing - do you just bake the same cake twice and stick the two halves together? and if so, how?

I used one and a half recipes to fill my Wilton Giant cupcake pan. I would rather fill it too much and cut some off then to have it not be tall enough.

The Wilton gint cupcake pan has a cavity for the bottom and a cavity for the top. THere is another panlike you are describing which leys flat and is decorated to look like a cupcake laying down.

If yours takes that much batter them you should used a heating core or flower nail to help it bake in the middle without burning the edges.

Thanks sadsmile! Yes, the second flat one is the one that I have seen. Now that I've seen the picture of the 3D one, I remember seeing it on sites, but I guess I never realized what it was. That's the one that I want to get, not the flat one.

I did see the Wilton pan but at $35 it was a little too much for me being unemployed so went with the cheap silicone one. You mentioned using a flower nail.... how does that work??

Thanks for all the advice!!!

I found it at walmart for 30 and you can do site to store shipping for free.

Greese and flour a clean(new or no rust on it-some old nails get rusty and you don't want to use that!) flower nail and place it flat side down in the center of the pan and carefully pour your batter around it. It will conduct heat into the middle and help it to bake fully so the edges won't have to be over cooked. Remove when cooling the cake.

I did not like the 3D pans. I used a 5, 6, and 7 inch pan for the bottom and then reversed for the top, trimmed up a bit and called it good. Easy to bake, easy to handle.

The 3D pan is smaller then the stack you put together. You really had a giant cupcake then. Why didn't you like the pan?
