i tried to bake a doll cake using the wilton wonder mold today but it fell over in the oven. i guess it was rising unevenly and so became unstable - plus it has that bolt on the bottom which sits between slats on shelf.

how can i stop this happening again?

should it sit the mold in a dish of some sort?

i am in the uk and used two cake mixes (not as popular as scrach cakes over here but as that was what the recipe called for i complied!). could that be part of the problem?

all advise gratefully received!

The pan should have come with a metal ring that you set it on to keep it flat. Then you put the whole thing on cookie sheet before putting in the oven. The bolt would sit inside that ring, not between the slats.

a metal ring!? well, that explains a lot. no such ring in box. i'll be getting in touch with shop i bought the tin from.

thank you for solving this!

Mine had a metal stand that I attached with the nut and bolt. Check your instruction sheet it shows a diagram of it. Good luck!
