I use my own cake recipe, not a mix so I can't help you on that one; But you want the batter to rise so the sides come all the way up the pan. If is rises in the centre, that is okay because you just cut them straight. Use a dense cake mix. You should check the top part as it will cook a little faster, but I have never had it burn or the other one be under done.

I will write more on the decorating part tomorrow. If I don't, PM me to remind me.

thanks lp, looking forward to decor tips. gonna make a trial run next week. sorry you are not feeling well

I made this cake the first time for the nurses at the hospital where I had my knee surgeries. They were so wonderful and when she found out what I did for a living, one of the nurses named me "Cupcake". I made the top of the cake with a white cake and the bottom in chocolate. I cut the tops (baked top) off both to make them even and then sliced each into two layers and added some filling (raspberry for the top and chocolate mousse in the bottom).

I then iced the bottom completely with white buttercream, and used a regular knife (flat side) to put the paper ridges back in. I then iced the flat part of the top with white buttercream and placed it carefully onto the bottom.

I made some pink buttercream and put it in a piping back with a medium sized round tip. I put a thin coating of pink onto the top with a knife, being careful to not cover the pattern too much or jiggle it off the bottom. I then piped the swirl onto the top and sprinkled little multi-coloured candies all over.

Finally, I painted a little door and windows on the bottom with coloured icing and fashioned a chimney out of cut chocolate wafer cookies. I also made some mini cupcakes that I iced green and used them as trees and bushes!

The nurses absolutely loved it! Unfortunately I never got a picture of that one.

I did another like a giant mushroom for a fun birthday cake for a friend who hates mushrooms - it is a running joke with us.

I did a few others that were pretty basic, but it is a good pan to have fun with.

Let us know how it goes, Babe, and if you are having any troubles with it, just let me know.
