When I first saw Wilton’s Giant Cupcake Pan, I thought that the bakeware company had outdone themselves in the design department. A giant version of one of the cutest baked goods out there, and a specialty pan that isn’t tied to any particular season and can be used year round? A clear winner.
At least, until I got a look at Wilton’s new summery version of the giant cupcake pan: the Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Pan.
The cakes look just like up-sized versions of the cupcakes baked in ice cream cones that I enjoyed – and attempted (with varying degrees of success) to make on several occasions with boxed cake mixes – as a kid. The pan bakes four complete ice cream cones and is shaped like an ice cream cone/cupcake itself! The pan is nonstick and has a fair amount of detailing on the tops and cones of the cakes, so it shouldn’t take too much decorating work to get them looking their best. My best suggestion is to use a vanilla cake batter for the base and a chocolate cake for the tops so that you get a good contrast between ice cream and cone.

Hi! I recently baked cupcakes in a heart-shaped silicone pan. When I got them out, they were very hole-y in the bottoms. As in, they had holes like cheese. Can you tell me what went wrong and how to avoid them next time? Thanks!
