I just burned my first wonder mold cake, have another one ready to go in and wanted a little advice.

I have a relatively small oven with heating coils at the top (and bottom, I think, but they're hidden). My first cake was black on top and still liquid in the middle. Would it be OK to put it on the lowest level (to keep it away from the worst of the heat) and possibly even put a layer of tinfoil over the top to keep the top of the cake from browning too fast? I've never done that with cake and don't want to have to make a 3rd one!
I was also wondering whether to turn on the convection feature.

Do any of you have any helpful hints? I'd be extremely grateful!

Thanks alot!

presuming you have the center heat core in place, lowering the temperature will help. Re-centering the pan is probably a good idea.

Update: My second attempt turned out much, much better.
I think the foil was helpful, I just should have put cake release on it first (that stuff is incredible! my first time using it and I'll never switch again!).

I wish I had a larger American style oven! It would make life so much simpler. icon_biggrin.gif
