Can anyone explain this mystery Christmas tree pan?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Hi, a friend of mine came across this Christmas tree pan, and we cannot figure out how it's supposed to be used. It would leave large holes in the cake - to be filled with something, maybe? I tried googling and couldn't find it, she emailed Wilton and has not heard back.

 

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Maybe you just have to put cupcakes  decorated as  ornaments??? It's a thoughicon_eek.gif

I saw this at the store too!

 

Wondered the same thing too!

 

And maybe I am inept (quite possibly), but I can't seem to find it on Wilton's site either...

She said the holes are too small for cupcakes, that was my first suggestion, too!

How odd!

 

Here's my guess-  So you bake a green colored cake in the pan.  Then wash the pan.  Then put maybe red or different colors of batter in the cavities and bake in the other side of the pan.  Then when all is done, you fill your green cake tree with the colored "plugs" (for lack of a better word) so it looks like a tree with ornaments when you cut into it???

I homeschool because I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children.

Votive candles?

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I like Jess's idea... I didn't look closely enough at the pan to see if that was what it was for... but it is a good idea...

In my opinion, mini-cupcakes would fitand look great........decorated separately from the cake and placed on the decorated tree, like Christmas tree ornaments. 

Or you could make tree ornaments out of donut holes by rolling them in different colors of thinned buttercream and then multi colored sprinkles and place them in the holes on the decorated tree.

It will be interesting to see what Wilton says the holes are for.

I had the same idea as Jess155.

I'm so addicted to cake my family threatened to check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic.

I'd do the mini-cupcake thing.

 

Curiosity got the best of me so I searched all over, including Wilton, but can't find anything about this pan. OP does it have a product number? Did your friend find it in a store or a yard sale?  

In my opinion, cake should be at the base of the Food Pyramid.

I've seen this pan at two different Wal-Marts.  I think it is something that Wilton made just for them.  But I couldn't figure out how to use it so I passed on it.  I'll be interested to see in someone figures it out.

After much discussion (and confusion) over this pan (which we also purchased!), we think that you are supposed to turn the pan over, pour cake mix in the hole part and bake it (to make the mini cupcakes), and then flip the pan over, pour cake mix in the tree part and bake that.  Then, you can put the baked "holes" into the tree cake and decorate them like ornaments.  Not sure if that is correct or not, but that is the best explanation we could come up with, and it is what we are going to try!
