    I am having trouble whenever I make my cake, that it gets stuck in the pan, and then crumbles to bits… any hints, or tricks??

    I made one last weekend and used a cook’s magazine chocolate cupcake recipe. I greased and floured the pan (since it was chocolate I used cocoa powder instead of flour). After letting it cool for a little while I turned it upside down on the cooling rack (treating it like an angel food cake) and let gravity do the work for me. It slid out very nicely and was not crumbly.

    I bought the Wilton pan instead of the silicone and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what to use as an insert to create a somewhat hollow cake. I plan on using blueberry muffin mix and filling the center w/ fresh bluberries and cream or baking cornbread in the mold and filling center w/ chili. Any suggestion?

    Anyone have any ideas of using the Giant Cupcake to make it look like a turkey??

  10. Jean

    Is there a Wilton cupcake book that has all these ideas in it?

  11. MARY

    Could someone provide me with a recipe using a box cake mix for making a giant cup cake using the Wilton pan?

    I brush my tin with a little nut oil. I don’t like to use grease and flour as I find it can leave residue. I also have the multi muffin pan and have a tip… fill the tops more than the bases (otherwise they look really odd!)

    Has anyone found any recipes from scratch that they would recommend with the Giant Cupcake pan? The pan only came with one recipe.

  14. Kim Holmes

    I use this recipe for proportions for the giant cupcake: 14oz each of butter, self raising flour and caster sugar, 6 eggs, 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder (English measurements and ingredients). This will fill both bottom and top, but leave a bit of room for cakes to rise.

    I just got the giant cupcake pan for my birthday and the directions says when using your favorite boxed cake mix please note that for a baked cake to fill the entire pan, fill with batter about 2/3 full (about 6 cups of batter which will be more than a single boxed cake mix) i have not got to try mine yet but im so exited

    I just baked my first one and used only 1 box of cake mix. I thought it wasn’t be enough after I poured it like the paperwork said, But it baked and rose up the top.

    I love this pan! But I do think you need to make two mixes, and fill the pan with about a quarter of the second box. Then simply make regular cupcakes with the remaining mix. You will get approx. 12 more cupcakes.
