Ok...I'm assuming (know the definition of that...chuckle...) that you mean a 10" round - 4" deep pan? Are there 4" deep pans??? If so, did you use an inverted greased flower nail, or heating core to help cook the center? Also, I highly recommend heating strips around the outside of the cake. I cook at 325 degrees, so my cakes always take longer... I would suggest that you pick up an oven temperture gauge...a lot of ovens are either under or over temperture. Yours may be under and that is why it took so long...

HTH,
Pat

Well...hmmm... I have 3" pans and I fill them 2/3rds full, but...Wilton sugguests that you only fill them 1/2 full... With the flower nail and strips, baking at 325 I have no problems. My cakes just take a little longer to cook... So, I would think that a 4" pan would take even longer and I would highly recommend using the strips. Remember to soak them well...

I use the heating core as well. I fill mine 2/3 full, too. I have never used the flower nail - does it work as wellas the heating core? Tha would be much easier than the plug!

AK,

The flower nails work great! icon_biggrin.gif Just make sure you grease it well. I sometimes use more than one on Big cakes. When you flip your cake out, remove it, and then turn it back right side up to cool. icon_smile.gif

Lanue,

You know that you can just pin the strips together? Before I bought another set, I was a little short going around a pan and I just cut up a wash cloth, wet it really good, and used it to fill the gap. Worked like a charm. icon_biggrin.gif Use the good old toothpick check method for making sure when it's done...

Happy Baking! icon_smile.gif
