Need cake recipe for mold pan
Ewww, that sounds terrible, doesn't it? Well, to make a long story short, I will probably be baking my grandson's cake or cakes for his birthday tomorrow. I wasn't expecting to until now. I'm at work now, and don't normally sneak forum time in at work, but I thought I'd post this question now so maybe I'll have an answer by this evening when I need to do the baking.
Is there a special cake recipe for baking in a mold pan? The mold is a face of a cartoon character, some transformer, I think. I've never baked a cake like this before, nor decorated one, either. Yikes. I'd like to make a yellow or white cake, and a chocolate one, as I think one cake from this mold may be too small.
I have a pastry bag and tips that I bought several years ago and haven't ever used. I plan to practice with shortening. Which reminds me - what about frosting? Any recipes for frosting that's easy to work with and isn't too yucky sweet? I have the kids getting cream cheese and butter, to cover the bases.
