This review is from: Wilton Dimensions Large Cupcake Pan (Kitchen & Home)
I love the novelty shape this tin gives, it was perfect for topping a three teir stand of cup cakes, however, I've used it three times now and no matter how carefully I grease and flour the tin I have had real difficulty getting the base side of the cake out. I also find the top half of the cake cooks quicker than the bottom so next time I shall only fill one half and cook individually.

Put a circle of greaseproof paper on the bottom of the base side of the tin and grease the sides liberally with butter/marge. I even do this with my usual cakes and have no problems.

I'm just gearing up to order this for my first use in honour of a friend's birthday. What a useful tip! I'll try it this way and, hopefully, will have the desired result first time.

Yes Joliet I too do this with my usual cakes, I am thinking of getting this cake tin for grandkids birthday cakes a little nervous as it is a bit expensive and would prefer the tin to the plastic so perhaps Amazon Queen is right to just cook each half separately.

Amazon Queen has it worked with cooking half at a time.

I read somewhere to use the same amount of cups of batter in each, so if you use 3 cups for base use 3 cups for top. Having the same amount of batter should mean they bake the same I expect. I haven't tried this as yet so not sure if this works.

Never had a problem with it! & what a waste of energy to merely cook 1/2 at a time, that will add considerable time & expense if used just on it's own.
Have you used the wilton spray? ..it's nigh on infallible, & bearing in mind this is a non stick coated pan I can only guess as to what is going wrong for you.
We use a regular fan oven, strip it out of all unnecessary bits & bobs, including removing our pizza stone, & we rotate the cake in it's mould carefully whilst testing it along the way for even bake.
made around 9 of these with our wilton tin & never had to doa re-make, convection is just that, .. air that moves, ..therefore if heat is being blown around unevenly (ie into a crevice of the mould) which MIGHT result in a slight superheating, thus the rotation to allow proper even circulation, this is 2 joined tins in essences so needs extra attention paying to the way it sits & absorbs warmth as part of the process.
