Need help with doll mold pan followed directions and made 2 cakes:both times the center sunk the directions say 350 degrees if i cook at 325 would that eliminate the problem, centers were still mushy. Bridal shower on saturday need help asap
Every cake I bake is at 325. It takes an eternity to cook thoroughly. If you opened the oven door and checked it too soon, that may be the reason for the sunken center. Try it on 325, and don't open the oven door for at least 80 minutes.
I agree with jammjenks. All of my cakes are baked at 325 no matter what the directions say. I haven't had a problem. They bake more evenly as well. I do dolls all the time and just love themm. They are fun to make. Good Luck
I normally bake all my cakes at 325 too and it's been so long since I've done a doll cake that I figured - hey, follow the directions, maybe they'll be right! NOT! The directions also say to add 5 1/2 to 6 cups of batter. When you use 6 cups - it doesn't make a very high cake - it doesn't even come up to the rim of the pan. How many cups do you guys use?
I bake at 325 and most of the time use my convection. I don't pay attention to batter measurments. I overfill my pans to begin with so they will puff up more over the pan. My cakes end up being 4 inches in height.
