I just wondered if there is anybody else out there in cake world! that has the same problem as I keep getting.
I have made two hexagona cakes now, and both times they have sank in the middle as they were cooling down, and I have had to throw them both in the bin!!
I make a lot of cakes with both round and square tins up to twelve inches, and never have any problem whatsoever with them. Just this infuriatng hexagonal one!! .... Any tips would be very gratefully accepted! and would be comforting to know this maybe has happened to somebody else and its not just me!!! ...I don't want to waste anymore!
I've only made one - but made several tiers and didn't have any problems. I just did WASC. Would the flower nail in the middle of the cake trick work? It's for leveling really - but will cook the middle faster, right?
Thanks very much for that, I will give it a try next time I get the strenght up to try another one !!!
You're welcome. Hope it works for you!
Sinking can be a sign of underbaked, did you torte them?
Thanks for all your help, but I think I have found answer to my problem! ..... I always have my oven set to a certain setting, but without my knowledge I think a little person has been playing with the oven dials, and reset it!!! .... it turns out that it was only heating from the grill, and not from the bottom of the oven as well, hence uncooked cakes in the middle!! ...... so hopefully this is the end of my cake disaters and blaming the poor hexagonal tin!!! ...... oh the joys of parenthood!! and four wasted cakes in the bin!!! ..... ah well, worse things happen in life!!
Thanks to all again x
Oh no! LOL
Well, so glad you figured it out!
