First of all, it bakes up just like any other bundt cake, so long as you get each nook and cranny of the pan interior with flour-added cooking spray. (It's right there on the grocer's shelf next to the regular spray.) If you do that one simple step, I guarantee that this cake will release from the pan perfectly every time! I like yellow cake for that sandy color - no need to frost this cake! Oh, and take care not to over-fill the pan... make a few extra cupcakes if you need to with any leftover batter.
Presentation options are endless! I use turbinado sugar "sand", sprinkled all over, and chocolate rocks for a natural look. I've added chocolate seashells for a beachy look, and once sugar cookie starfish... On another version, fondant "ladybugs" and "butterflies" frolicked about the castle walls. Don't forget to add flags to the turrets, especially if it's someone's birthday cake! Most of all, have fun and enjoy the compliments!
This little bundt pan delivers! It pops out beautiful cakes in amazing detail. Using non-stick flour spray, I've have had no problems at all (and I've had a long history of cracked cakes from other pans). I've baked 6 cakes in the past week. Each one turned out fantastic and was a delight to decorate (we found out that cutting out the drawbridge further adds to the realism of the cake--plus you can put a little knight or gingerbread person inside).
The quality of this pan is also very impressive. It's made with a heavy metal alloy (not like the cheapy bundt cake pans I've seen at the store). It will most likely become an heirloom in my family. :)
First off- the Wow Factor is BIG with this piece. I've used it three times so far and each time I received ooh's and ahh's galore. I've done a glaze and also powdered sugar and both gave a good coating without obscuring any details.
I tried using Bakers Joy and the cake still stuck. The next time I used Bakers Joy, added flour and baked the cake a bit longer and it came out perfectly. Don't be afraid to let your cake get well done in this pan- it helped rather than hindered.
With vegan cake mix- bake the cake longer or it won't hold the detail. There simply isn't enough binder action to keep all that detail. First vegan cake was sloppy and had minor detail- the second vegan cake I cooked for almost eight minutes longer than the recipe called for and the detail came out perfectly.
A note on icing:
The front of the cake (large doors) is quite thick so consider making that area an icing heavy zone in order to avoid giving someone a piece of cake that is just that- cake. Another option is to insert a section of icing (think twinkie) into the door area and have that section be for the birthday boy/girl. The bottom will not be perfectly flat so either shave it or do what I did- frost the heck out of the sides to create 'grass' for the castle to sit on.
I would recommend this pan as long as you are prepared to do a test cake to learn your favorite method. I wouldn't recommend the pan if you have a big cake due tomorrow and want a wow factor- give yourself a trial cake first to get the technique down. Plus, who doesn't like MORE cake?
- Follow the directions for flouring and cooling. If you don't, you'll be using a toothpick to clean those details. Otherwise, the cakes lifts out perfectly.
- I use Bak-klene spray available at Williams-Sonoma, where I purchased the pan. Then I flour the pan.
- Smooth recipes provide the best results. One recipe with crushed pineapple resulted in loss of detail & difficulty removing from pan.
- When using as a gelatin mold, follow the instructions for Jigglers(TM). I followed the quick-set method & the finished product did stand up but was very unstable.
- Make an Undersea Castle with gelatin and gummy fish & sharks. Do not try to make seaweed using the yogurt gummy rolls. They dissolve in the gelatin.
- Make a haunted house or Dracula's Castle for Halloween with Devil's Food Cake.
- Dress the cake up for these themes: Christmas Wonderland, Princess, Horse Trainer or Pirate.
- Brown sugar makes a great base for your castle. I gave four stars instead of five because this pan can be more difficult to clean than regular cake pans but the compliments are worth it.
