to put a rose nail in the pan before putting the cake in the oven. icon_cry.gif It was in for 25 minutes when I realized it! The sides are baking nicely, but the center is still pretty wet. Oh well, I stuck one in, point down. Hopefully it will work that way and the sides don't get dry before the center bakes. icon_sad.gif

Well....It kind of worked and kind of didn't. The center did catch up with the sides, the cake had a flat top and the sides didn't overbake. BUT....the cake baked up around the flat part of the nail a little bit, so that part of the cake didn't cook as well as the rest. Once the middle of the cake caught up with the sides, I should have taken the nail out then. I think that would have solved the problem.
