Star Wars™ R2-D2 Cake Pan 5 "Great cake mould" 25 June 2015 I recently did a practice run with this for my son's 6th birthday next month. Having read previous reviews, I coated the mould liberally with cake release (using a pastry brush). I'm not much of a "from scratch" baker and I was very happy to find the mould was the perfect size for 3 boxes of vanilla sponge cake mixes (which in total uses 9 eggs). I cooked it low and slow, about 100 minutes on 160 degrees. The cake came out perfectly, cooked through and only a little browned on the feet. I've yet to decorate on but when I do I will use the mould to get detail on the fondant icing.
