i have a cake due today around 3:00pm (it's now 7:00am). it uses the wilton sports ball pan as part of the shape. i've now tried to bake a cake in this pan 3 times and so far each time it's not cooking through totally. i thought i could use the bake even strips but they fall off and according to wilton i should be baking at 325... can anyone help me!?!?! what can i do

I bake mine at 350 and it always comes out great. Don't fill it too full either. You could also put your flower nail in the bottom too.

You fill one ball pan about half full, and the other ball pan about half full. You lay each one on a cookie tray (there should be a stand for each half). You aren't putting the ball together and baking it, are you?

You might also want to try wrapping a well soaked strip of old towel around each ball pan. It takes longer to bake but the centre will definitely get done.

i def. was baking them by halves... not together. i tried a damp strip..i think it was my recipe.. but i've been using it forever.. sooooo i just ran to the store and resorted to buying box mix and i'm giving it one more try! ugh!
